Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre (BBC) is an interactive butterfly exhibit located 25 km north of Siem Reap on the road to the Landmine Museum and Banteay Srey temple.
The exhibit consists of a netted tropical garden with thousands of free-flying butterflies, all of which are native species to Cambodia. The enclosure is South East Asia’s largest butterfly exhibit and provides residents and tourists with an interactive and visual environment to learn about butterflies and support local communities.
At BBC it is possible to witness an array of colorful butterflies feeding and flying close at hand. Visitors can also witness the complete life cycle of the butterfly, including pupae form which is farmed sustainably by people from villages in the Siem Reap Province.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff greet guests on arrival before happily talking through the background to the project, the butterfly life-cycle and conservationism.
