Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park

Last month we’ve made a spontaneous trip to the Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park after our lunch at The Cafe. Located at Jalan Cenderasari, adjacent to the Taman Tasik Perdana aka Lake Garden and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park.

Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park located in the heart of bustling Kuala Lumpur cit, a kingdom with splendid haven of hundreds of vividly colored, free flying butterflies and other insects. Spanning over 80,000 square feet of landscaped garden with over 5,000 butterflies, exotic plants, butterfly-host plants and ferns, it is one of the largest houses in the world. The park also houses an exhibition area with information on butterflies and other insects.

We were greeted by the green landscape which simulated natural rainforest environment at the starting point.

There is a souvenier shop at the end of the tour selling variety of  butterfly inspired items.

 

Verdict: We enjoyed the tour seeing those beautiful creatures fluttering around but to be honest I expected to see more butterflies and the variety also quite limited (as what I’ve seen), maybe we were not in the correct timing to see more?
