  • There are exotic animals and animals that are native of Palawan aside from the different butterflies flitting about. There is a crocodile pen, a couple of peacocks, snakes, scorpion and a fish pond. There is also a cultural exchange of some sort with the original natives of Palawan. They come down from their mountain homes and stay for a few weeks with the garden's owner. They bring down their trades for sale.
  • The ‘Palaw’an’ tribe cultural presentation was even more significant than the butterfly park. It should be displayed more predominantly than the butterfly as it’s very unique. I have not seen any other IP group with a fixed presentation that people can go an experience. Great Experience!
