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.
Walking into Penang Butterfly Farm
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.
One of my girlfriend’s favorite shots
The butterflies are very friendly and love visitors. Look at this one!
The butterfly trying to suck the nectar but failed! Haha
Another of my girlfriend’s favorite shots @ Penang Butterfly Farm
A rather cool butterfly
It took us a while to found it, the java leaf insect. Very pandai!
Guess what? It’s not a leaf but java leaf insect. Suprise! Suprise!
Just for fun! Hope you laughed!
This reminds me of Baja Hitam! One of my favorite Japanese heroes when I was a kid.
Beautiful is it? Must be wondering where to get this shot right? I took it from a picture displayed! Haha
One of the cool insect in Penang Butterfly Farm. Fluoroscent scorpions.
Another beautiful shot by my girlfriend!

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.
Very nice set of shots you got there on the butterflies and bugs! Very relaxing to look at! Thank you for sharing this to us! More power to you! Cheers!
I enjoyed watching the photos. It is nice going to butterfly farm. I want to visit in this farm but it is too far. But still, I am grateful to see this blog. It’s great to see a butterfly farm like this.
