Where to fins butterflies in Bohol, Philippines

By Jonny Blair


You could be forgiven for thinking a "Butterfly Centre" is a boring way to spend an hour of your travel time. But then we ended up in this quality Butterfly Centre called "Flying Colours" as part of our tour round Bohol island in The Philippines. We were quite surprised by it!

The cost to get inside is 35 Philippine Pesos which is reasonable - once inside you get a guided tour from a lady that works there and knows all about caterpillars and butterflies. She can help you take photos and will explain all about the life of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This was my first time in such a place and I enjoyed it.

First section you see a range of caterpillars and you can hold them. Despite having seen numerous caterpillars in my time, this was the first time to see a 'big' caterpillar. In glass boxes they have various stages of the caterpillar development - from being a caterpillar, to eating, to being housed in a cocoon to releasing themselves as butterflies! These were all live insects ready to become butterflies, the time it takes for the transformation varies but most of the ones we saw would take just over two weeks to go from caterpillar to butterfly.

You get to see the world's largest moth as well and the biggest butterfly native to the Philippines. These are dead however and you will see them in a box, preserved. You can pose for fun photos with them and also with pretend butterfly wings.

Final part of the tour is basically for getting photos of butterflies. We had them on our noses, chins etc. for photos. It was a short and sweet tour but I really enjoyed it. These random moments of travel are what makes me tick and realise why I love a lifestyle of travel.
