We loved the butterfly park because of how many species of butterflies there were. It is all open air and the butterflies are free to flutter around, leaving you with so many great photo opportunities. The pathways are full of gorgeous flowers and water features and this was a good hour and a half spent.My only complaint is that it was a little pricey for what you got.
Visited mid-July 2013. Walked from the Bird Park. Saw hardly any butterflies and those we did see were all similar, not many varieties.

A trip to this attraction could be easily combined with the Bird Park or the Deer Park both which are in close proximity. The cost to get in of 20 ringgits was quite expensive but we saw many exhibits both live, in the form of butterflies and turtles and also a small natural history museum containing butterfly and beetle exhibits. There were feeding stations near to the paths to allow visitors to see the butterflies close up. We found that the butterflies were often camouflaged by the flowers but we got better at seeing them so look carefully. It was very humid in the attraction so it might be advisable to take some water in with you to drink. We managed to get some nice photos as reminders of our visit and were glad we went despite the price of entry. This is not a
Dont forget your professional camera!
