Previous reviews tell the story! WHEN we eventually found the place it was deserted with a very small neglected parking area and nobody about. We shouted 'hello' several times by the ticket office but nobody answered. We heard womens voices in the distance and repeated...More

Very disappointing place with almost no bluming orchids and the place being worn out. You will be charged 40 RM pr. person for a small walk with nothing of interest other than your partner.

Very informative guide and a brilliant collection of native species. Can spend at least 2 hours plus walking through the gardens. If you are really interested in orchids it is worth the entrance fee. If you expect showy bright hybrid blooms then perhaps not the...More

So much to look at! Lucky to see many beautiful varieties of orchids and other plants, as we had been told that not much was flowering at the time,but risked the visit anyway. Well informed curator, well set out displays and a thoroughly beautiful garden....More

This site is amazing. The curator knows his stuff and was able to identify those species we couldn't . Need some insect repellent but does not detract from the delights of the site

Sure, we were on a specifically orchids-focussed tour - 11 days in Sabah - and well appreciated what we saw, learned and photographed. Our group of 4 stayed 2-3 hours as we and Mr Wang tapped into our mutual enthusiasm despite Kiwi-Pom- Sabahan accent challenges...More
