    This is really worth visit. You can easily spend a couple of hours here, viewing all there is to see. There are many butterflies and insects. The beautiful butterflies are flying freely within the huge domes and I've not seen anything like this elsewhere.

    It is very convenient to enter the park as long as you present your e-ticket. The butterfly park is not very, but there are many kinds of butterflies. There are special blue butterflies in Australia, which are very beautiful. There are also a lot of butterflies. The most pleasant surprise is that there are butterflies staying on people. In the butterfly laboratory, you can see the variety of insects and cockroaches, both large and small. It took us 1.5 hours to leave and it was a great experience.
