Why Penang Butterfly Farm is special ?
What to explore at Penang Butterfly Farm?
Butterflies are beautiful creatures of the wild. The visitor to the Penang Butterfly Farm, finding himself surrounded by a myriad of fluttering butterflies within a seemingly natural setting, is likely to think himself in a sort of enchanted wilderness, bejeweled with the colorful gems of creation.
The main attraction of the Butterfly Farm is undoubtedly the free flying papilions in the enormous enclosure. The visitor can inspect the butterflies at close quarters as they flit around their favorite nectar plants. The exhibition of selected insects and reptiles are also crowd drawers. The visitor, having traversed this complex of displays ends up in a souvenir shop selling butterfly-related paraphernalia.

Tips for you
Nice place to visit especially with young children
It is the world’s first tropical live butterfly sanctuary as claimed at the entrance’s signboard overhead. It is interesting and educational to witness the life cycle of butterfly.My nieces and nephew had great fun there. Probably my second niece’s flowers on her sandal look so real that it did attract a butterfly to stick to her foot while she was taking photos with the other kids. She was frightened yet we were amused.There are also display of some other insects and reptiles. It is so good to have a brief introduction for each species.
Definitely worth seeing. 27 RM is not a fortune but really good investment here. Area maybe not so big but as for the closed piece of jungle and all these butterflies all around - grat, just great effort to show and learn how this can look like.Not only butterflies are living here - you can alse met spiders, other interesting insects, as well as few animals.too less Descriptions IMHO - lot of butterfiles but few described in details, 20 others - not necessary. Must note very good educational aspects, class program, movies... Souvenir shop quite interesting, you can have your own bug, butterfly or insect as well as crystals or minerals, but better check for your country customs rules before you buy, otherwise it will be very very unpleasant.NO good restaurant there, minor bars only.Secure drink water for the journey especially for children - open area is a piece of jungle despite high humidity is really hot.Children - they must be aware - since not all have tolerance... I've seen lot of them crying just due the butterfly closing... what will be if they see the malaysian scorpion or tarantulas...
This review I am not just writing about the Butterfly Farm. I want to write about overall my trip to Penang, which is one of my favorite destinations, ever visited or will be visited.I choose Malaysia as my first touristic destination and Penang was my 1st point other than various places in my own country and the country where I based for employment (Saudi Arabia). The reason behind choosing Penang as 1st destination is that when I studied in my primary school there was a chapter about Penang, I don't know who was the author and the chapter was titled :An Evening in Penang
