So this was sold to us on the basis that it was solely a butterfly farm, and was included in a tour we booked with our hotel. On entering the 'farm' we walked into an insect section, where an employee was in the enclosure with the leaf and stick insects, poking them to make them move for tourists. The leaf insects were then grabbed and passed around the tourists. All the insects were kept in tiny cages and many were cramped in together. The butterfly enclosurer should have been monitored so tourists couldn't touch the butterflies, however tourists could do what they like to them. Further inside, we saw other rodents (rabbits, Guinean pigs and chipmunks) in tiny, unkept cages (covered in poo) with no food and water. The most upsetting was the raccoons who were kept in tiny concrete cages with no entertainment or food. The turkeys were kept in a tiny corner and the hedgehogs are only fed cat food. This was an unsettling experience and we would urge anyone who does not want to harm animals not to go. I honestly hope this place gets shut down very soon and Asian establishments realise that this is NOT WHAT TOURISTS WANT TO SEE.

I was quite saddened to see the animals there. I didn't expect to see more than butterflies but there were racoons, insects, snakes, turkeys...Bottom line is, they didn't look like they were well kept. Snakes were in small 'cubicles'. We saw a few dead butterflies on the floor and my daughter started crying! Visitors also were not monitored. Shocked to see some of them catching butterflies by their wings! No one cares! The poor raccoons looked bored. The turkeys seem to be perpetually on 'attack' mode! The only refreshing sight was the flowers! Maybe this place should just stick to that! Flowers were pretty.

While not being as full-featured as Penang's Entopia, it is relatively much less expensive (Adult @ RM7, Kids @ RM4), and kids can have a great time.

Do look out for their insect collection (Stick insects twice the length of your palm and various other interesting crawlies)!

Seems to be owned by the same owner as Jin Jin Steamboat.

An inexpensive but quality experience. Enclosed butterfly garden had lots of variety & color. Walk down steps to many other animals on display...raccoons, lizards, chipmunks, snakes, hedgehogs, insects (very large). Many colorful flowers.

If your passing by the CH Butterlfy Garden I would consider stopping here. Only 7 RM entrance for adults. Many different butterflies are present and give great photo opportunities. They have other animals as well and a small flower garden. The kept reptiles are sadly an example of poor husbandry, other than that an enjoyable stop!
