We visited a butterfly sanctuary in Malaysia many years ago and enjoyed this experience more as we didn't feel like we had to leave due to the humidity. They have beautiful butterflies and you can watch the life cycle of the butterflies at their different...More

Not just a beautiful rainforest setting filled with the butterflies unique to the region, but also a seriously scientific research facility. The 'sciency' bit, off to one side must not be missed.
