Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom, Singapore
Singapore has many surprises in stores for the tourists and one such wonderful surprise is the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom in Sentosa. This is a tropical garden with lots of greenery, insects and butterflies flying around. There are over 1500 live butterflies from as many as 50 different species.
You will love the outdoor conservatory as the butterflies flutter around in all directions. The whole set up resembles nature very closely. The whole idea of building this butterfly park came up in order to remember the thousands of tiny creatures that have been lost in the name of rapid growth and urbanization.
The Insect Revolution exhibit will make you acquainted with the history of the creepy-crawlies and their evolution over time. There many insect fossils that dates back millions of years.
The Park is also the first in the world to have a 70m long cave that has live insects specimens and all in their natural habitats. You can watch the birth of a new life at the Live Pupae House which has around 3000 species of the beautiful and rate insects.
The largest recorded Dynastes Hercules beetle is also here and it is all of 160mm. This place is real fun and if you are wearing bright colored shirts then the butterflies will even land on you. In a separate exhibit, you will find the spiders, scorpions and the beetles. The Fireflies are real fun and act as your guide in the dark.
If you are of the adventurous type, then you can participate in one of the Stage Shows which are held twice a day. Here you will learn how to handle giant scorpions and the beetles. Next in line should be the tick Insect Safari and I bet you will have a hard time in spotting a stick insect. They are the masters of camouflage.
Take the Sentosa Bus from the World Trade Center Bus Terminal. Once you reach Sentosa, take the Monorail to station M4.
The park opens at 9:00 in the morning and shuts down at 6:30 in the evening. The admission fee is 10 SGD. It will take around 45 min to tour the whole park.
