  • The park is located in the immediate vicinity of the Kuang Si waterfall. We have already seen butterfly parks, but this one is small and designed with a lot of love. Volunteers explain a lot about the stages of butterflies, the café at the fish pond is great, the cake too. In the butterfly aviary is a small pond with 2 chairs, where cleaner fish beautify the feet. For us a successful conclusion of the day at Kuang Si waterfall.

  • Absolutely loved this place. Its not very big however its stunning. The setting is perfect. The staff are very friendly and informative. The butterflies are numerous and stunning. Definitely worth a visit. The cafe overlooks a huge fish pond where you can feed them.
  • What a paradise. The first thing you see when entering the park is a beautiful little waterfall, and then it just gets better with the gardens and the butterflies. The species they have are amazing and are all local. You can get all explanations you want as there are guides happy to talk with you. Don't miss this place !
  • Really interesting and pretty place. Wear easy to remove shoes so you can dip your feet in the water
  • Wonderful place. I really enjoyed my time there and the owners are amazing. Would 100% recommend.
  • You can really see the lifeline from start to finish in the butterfly park. But what makes it even more special is the people that are running it! they truly have a passion for what they are doing, and dont feel shy to ask them about the butterflys :) must see if u love nature.
