Butterfly garden @ PRP


Pasir Ris Park never fails to impress me with the biodiversity it can offer to visitors. The Butterfly Garden, as what my friend would say - 'Magical'. Indeed, the number of butterflies attracted to the Garden is beautifully overwhelming.

There are photo opportunities at every corner,  butterflies are so engrossed in feeding that you can be at close proximity to them. I think it is a good educational place where children can be impressed and fascinated by the pretty butterflies. For me, it was a crash course to learn all the butterflies I saw on one day alone, it was a interesting experience :)
