Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre, Siem Reap
(3.9/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • Between all these eternal and majestic temples, this stop will give you the pleasure of rave you about the beautiful, the light and the ephemeral. In 30 minutes you will understand the basics of reproduction of the butterfly with a very available guide that leads you through the "papillonniere". You can almost touch them... it's a moment of grace in the shade and among the flowers. Â do while returning from one of your tours before joining the tumult in siem reap.
