Turned up just in time for a tour, just the two of us, with Xiang. Really recommend it. Without, you'd get round in about 15 minutes and not know what you'd seen! Really liked the leaf insects and releasing butterflies.

A visit to Penang is not complete without a trip to the Butterfly Farm. Be treated to being up close and personal with these wonderful insects in this controlled habitat. The farm also boasts some very large cat fish, lizards and bugs and spiders - the latter safely behind glass. And don't forget the flowers and plant life all thriving... More

This hasn't changed since were here over 20 years ago. Still lots of interesting butterflies and insects but now a little cramped whenbus tours descend and the cafe is not much kop. We were told it would be clsing soon for an overhaul. Much needed.

Lovely little park, needs to be a little cleaner (but that seems to be everywhere in Asia) and have more information about the butterflies in the aviary.

We had been to a Medical Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia one year ago and we managed have a break to visit this famous Butterfly Farm ! It was truly amazing with thousands of insects flying around you and sitting on you ! We felt like flying along with them ! The cage was quite spacious for these beautiful insects... More

A butterfly and insect sanctuary, this attraction is located in Teluk Bahang. There is an entrance fee and Malaysians get a discount with their Mycards. Once inside you can join a guided tour which is free of charge. Though on a small scale, this farm has lots of lovely butterflies of various colours. A nice place to spend a few... More

A dull morning,and a very pleasurable visit to the Butterfly farm. The butterflies are spectacular and settle all over you. This is only an hour and a half visit unless you are a very slow walker. Worth the entry fee to see so many unusual butterflies.

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning at the Butterfly Farm. We caught a cheap RM10 from the Hard Rock Hotel Make sure you join in the free tour so much more extra information and anecdotes.
