The park is nothing spectacular but the spring is great. So many beautiful butterfly's. But it is really difficult getting them on camera. The park is quit nice for a picnic and a romantic moment.

The park is nice for a park but nothing spectacular. The butterfly is only available once a year so forget the butterfly as well :D But the butterfly spring is beautiful. It had crystal clear emerald colored water with carps swimming inside. With the reflection...More

Not worth it to do in winter. You don't get to see many varieties of butterflies then. Just a lot of walking around. Skip if you have somewhere more interesting to go.

At 60 rmb per person this was sad. There were more dead butterflies than live ones. Sad really. The pond with ducks was nice. Bamboo everywhere was nice. The trinket shops you are forced through on the way out are maddening.

No butterfly's and the "butterfly house" was closed. Nice park with an interesting dam of a small stream and at the bottom of the dams lion heads spit out the water. Nothing else of interest and a smaller version of the walkway in Nanjing. Go...More

I find that there's nothing much to ado about this place but since in Dali, just go have a look. Can skip it if you have better place to visit

Horrid! Butterflies were completely non-existent apart from those pinned-up and dead in the horrible butterly pavilion. Also, the hagglers were out in full force, some so wrinkly that my friend mistook them for witches.
