Well, what's in the name. There are loads of orchids in this garden. It's free, the flowers are beautiful, they have many species. Wouldn't spend too much time here, but it's nice to kill time if you have time spare.

We visit in the beginning of August but there were almost no orchids at all. In this time of year it is useless to visit these gardens.

We had a lovely walk through the orchid gardens and although it is very quiet, we were impressed at how well it was maintained and that there is no cost to visit.

We visited the Orchid Garden on a bike tour and were amazed by the large number of orchids on display. The gardens are beautifully arranged and most of the orchids were in bloom. If you love flowers, make the effort to visit.

The Orchids are beautiful, but unles you are an orchid-nerd I would choose another activity. The Orchidgarden is free of charge and if you are in the neighbourghood you Should drop by.

A great display of amazing variety and colours of different orchids. Also gives a boat trip across to the other side of the river where you get to look back at Kuching

I can't remember the opening hours but definitely take a little ferry across the river and walk. It is not far at all. You can't go in but you can see the Astana and Chief Ministers residence on either side of the road. The... More
