Had a great time with our 3 kids from 7 to 12 learning and touching butterflies. Saw all the stages and was magical to hold young butterflies.

After visiting the ruins we wanted someplace different, that the children would like. It is small, lots of butterflies, cocoons, flowers with a passionate staff. They also have a restaurant that other visitors said was good. Very peaceful.

We dropped into the centre on our way to another temple, and were so glad we did. The young man was an excellent guide and the butterflies are superb; so bright and colourful. Many are huge! Another good place to go when one has done...More

Our guide was very passionate about the work they were doing for the butterflies and community. His English was exceptional. It was raining so they said lots of butterflies would be hiding away but we immensely enjoyed this small slice of bliss regardless, and would...More

We've been to a number of butterfly houses but this had some features we've not seen before. We had a guide who was friendly. They had live displays of the creatures in the various stages. The garden was nice and of course the butterflies were...More

We went here after reading the reviews and its true the 6$ was too much but, worth it. To maintain a place like this means money so we opted to just enjoy our walk and learn from the butterflies. Now that's more than 5$ plus...More

We stopped by this small butterfly centre on our way back to Siem Reap. Afternoon seems to be a bad time to visit since we hardly saw any butterflies. :( Our guide did try to help us find some though.

We stopped here on the way back from the landmine museum. We thought $5 was quite expensive but we figured we'd come a long way so may as well. The butterflies were stunning and had a generous, luscious netted enclosure. The centre claims to be...More
