It is amazing to see all the butterflies. We had a guide from the park who explained us the butterflies and their lifecycle. We could even touch some caterpillars. The admission is just 5$ per person and it’s absolutely worth it.

Nice place to visit for fun. There were so many butterflies they had no where else to stop but on top of you. The speech was interesting. We need to appreciate nature more and this is a good place to start.

Although the butterfly enclosure seems a bit small when you first go in, it really has a lot of different species of butterflies. The guide explains in detail in English, and sometimes the owner comes around too. Ask anything you want and they will explain...More
