  • I loved it, very peaceful and beautiful gardens and butterflies. Also a natural fish spa, where you can put your feet in and very good cake and coffee. Totally recommend it and I personally liked this place even better than the Kuang Si waterfalls.
  • Great park to explore
  • I really enjoyed this place to see Beautiful butterflies and waterways passing through. Make sure you check out the dead leaf butterfly! It will blow your mind!
  • 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 !
  • When you visit the Kuang Si Waterfall you should defintily not miss the Kuang Si Butterfly Park. It's really interesting. There are a lot of butterflies. And the guys will explain all about the life of the Butterfly.
