Some butterflies will be resting on plants, striking their best poses for your camera. One or two of them might even land on you to take a rest if you are lucky and look gentle enough.
I definitely recommend you guys to visit, especially those Lepidoptera / Lepidopterist (a person who is studying about butterflies). A this place also good to bring your kids it an edutainment and fun! Do not worry about the hot weather it is covered and quite chill (maybe because during my visit it was after the rain).
The humidity should be more stifling but the abundant greenery makes the heat less so, and even the flapping of the butterfly’s wings against your cheek as they brazenly perch on you (especially if you’re wearing bright colours).
The National Monument is a sculpture that commemorates those who died in Malaysia’s struggle for freedom, principally against the Japanese occupation during World War II and the Malayan Emergency, which lasted from 1948 until 1960.
