  • Not run place of the Dutch. The 40 000 kip per person entrance fee is well priced. The ride is fast enough (about 30 minutes). Butterflies are in a greenhouse. Honestly, we saw almost as much during our walk around the waterfalls Kuang if.

  • We heard about the butterfly park from friends who had visited the previous day. We were THRILLED to have experienced it! THANK YOU--its my idea of paradise  more »
  • We visited the butterfly garden around lunch time after our visit to the Kuang Si waterfall. The Dutch owner received us warmly and with a guidebook we went on the garden path. The butterfly garden is not big, but we thought it was definitely worth it! We have super learned a lot about butterflies and all fine specimens seen thanks to the enthusiastic American volunteer who shared her knowledge with us. The restaurant is very nice located, very quiet and green. A must to there after you visit even what to eat or drink!
