Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Meet Cambodia’s indigenous butterfly species at Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre, a poverty mitigation project helping both the butterflies and the local community. One of the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia, the enclosure houses some 30 species of butterfly, many bred in the center’s sustainable farm, where locals are trained to harvest the delicate insects. Meander through netted enclosures amid dense tropical foliage, catching sight of many species, including the Lime butterfly, Atlas Moth and Peacock Pansy butterfly. At the farm, meet the locals and learn about the life cycle from caterpillar to cocoon, keeping your eyes peeled for the rare sight of a hatching butterfly.

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.
