Well worth the stop for $5 USD. It is quiet, relaxing and with a knowledgeable guide to boot. We team this with the Landmine Museum and the Palm Sugar Growers.

We arrived late, just at closing, but the guide stayed and gave us an inspiring look into the butterfly centre and the beautiful butterflies, bugs and other creatures being cultivated. The work provided for local families is also an inspirational element of the centre.

This was a nice break from the temples and something different. You entry fee comes with a guide that takes you through the stages of the butterfly. Walking through the small grounds amougst the butterflies is also an experience.
