Penang Visit #1: Penang Butterfly Farm, the World’s 1st Tropical Live Butterfly & Insect Sanctuary

Last month, our eChiro trainer and his wife (also our HQ Trainer) came over to visit our eChiro centre and also gave a training on how to become a better team member. Learned a great deal.

The next day, we took them to visit our Penang Butterfly Farm, the World’s 1st Tropical Live Butterfly & Insect Sanctuary, located at Batu Ferringhi. At first I was reluctant but after my girlfriend’s insistence, we went. And I had not regretted. The trip to Penang Butterfly Farm was unforgettable.

When we first went in, we are shocked to see so many butterflies flying in the farm, in front of us. Yeah, the butterflies are flying everywhere and we can touch them and feel them too. Impressive.

    Hello, Thanks for the lovely pictures. We have a butterfly farm here in Palawan but it hardly compares to Penang’s. I hope to come to Penang next year with my wife an children, and the Butterfly Farm will be on the list of places to go. We hope to stay in Ayer Itam.
