A multiple million dollar project by the Sarawak Government. We visited the garden but deeply disappointed as it is lacking of maintenance. No reception staff to provide information to the public but we saw a few staff group themselves chatting. All TV which were supposed to provide information were all death. Worst of all, we did not see much orchid... More

The orchid gardens are a 50c ferry ride across the river. There needs to be signs indicating where it is once you are off the ferry. Entrance is free and staff are very helpful. Not all the orchids were in bloom but a lot of them were and it was well worth a visit. It is not well advertised which... More

It is a short boat ride to the other side and a short walk (5-10min) to the garden from the boat. We did not see signs showing the way to the garden so had to ask people, once we got directions it is really easy. Entrance is free of charge. Worth going if the flowers are blossoming. During our trip... More

It was a pleasant surprise to have chanced upon this lovely Orchid Garden! We must have missed this out while researching for places to visit! We were elated to have visited it though the best time to visit is between the period of the months of June to September when most of the plants are expected to be in full... More

The range of orchids were wide and the landscaping was beautiful and well-planned. Though it was a bit of a ride, it was well-worthed the ride since there is no entrance fee. Do note that it is CLOSED on MONDAY. And it helped to have a thoughtful driver who walked around and offered to take pictures for the family.

Situated near the Dun, the garden is free and well worth taking the time to visit. The orchid displays are beautiful with many varieties. It can become very hot in the garden so go early in the day.

Although it was really hot we saw the most beautiful displays of orchids. They were in a lovely setting and a short drive from our Hotel.

Beautiful grown orchids, a very good maintained orchids garden. Must visit for orchids lovers. It took me some time to search this place by driving as no signboards were seen placed along jln Astana. But worth it afterall. Just behind DUN,opposite Astana.
