Why Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is special ?

Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is a veritable secret paradise where butterflies actually dance nonchalantly in clumps of fern amidst scented beautiful flowers and flowering vines.
From the words of the internationally renowned programme- Discovery Channel , in an interview and broadcasted to over 200 million viewers worldwide, it says “of all the butterfly parks in the world, none can compare with this one”.
This is the largest butterfly garden in the world spanning over 80,000 sq ft of LANDSCAPED garden with over 5,000 live butterflies, exotic plants, butterfly-host plants and ferns. Other attractions are japanese koi fish, fresh water turtles, live insects and a museum with a large collection of butterflies and insects from around the world.

What to explore at Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park?

The park is beautifully LANDSCAPED with myriads of lush greenery and colorful flowers. There are also a nursery and breeding area where you can see the butterfly larvae emerging as butterflies from their cocoons. 

Other than these butterflies of various colors and sizes, there are also insects on display. Among the insects on display are the rhinoceros beetles and the praying mantises.

 In the Butterfly Park itself is also a souvenir shop where you can purchase home some preserved butterflies which are made into bookmarks, keychains and so on.

Here is also a place where you can learn about the metamorphosis process of the caterpillar to a full grown butterfly. This is definitely a great place to bring your kids.

We managed to get some nice photos as reminders of our visit and were glad we went despite the price of entry. This is not a
