Entopia began its journey with David Goh, a young teacher with interest and passion for butterflies. Simply inspired, he set out to establish a tropical butterfly farm as a tourist destination in Penang. In 1986, this self-taught entomologist, founded the tropical world’s first butterfly and insect sanctuary, known as the Penang Butterfly Farm.
Over the years, Penang Butterfly Farm had been visited by more than 5 million local and international visitors, and it became the pride and joy of Penang. During its prime, it garnered many awards and was voted by visitors of TripAdvisor, acclaiming to be one of the best destinations in Penang.
