Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre, Siem Reap

(4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre and other attractions that appeal to you using our Siem Reap tourist route planner.

  • This "butterfly Center", modest in size, is home to a few varieties of beautiful butterflies. It is mostly run by a passionate staff who took the time to show us the different butterflies that field as well as the stages of the life cycle of butterflies.
