Took water taxi across river and it was worth it. The garden is very well maintained and the plants were very healthy. Good size garden and lots to see in flower. Large cool house with lots of colour. Very warm day so take water or you can buy it there. Small shop on site.

The entrance is free and the place id full of amazing orchids and tropical plants that it is possible to enjoy in their natural environment. If you walk until the end you will discover down hill a huge clearance covered with enormously big trees!

This garden is so very lovely and peaceful. It is a pleasure to cross the river (if hot) and wander over to the garden. When it was closed a few years ago I missed it very much.

Well set out and worth a visit. A wide range of orchids on display in pleasant surroundings. We came across this by accident and spent a very pleasant half hour here after a walk on the other side of the river.

Being somewhat restricted for a group activity over Chinese New Year celebrations, when many places were closed, our guide led us on a walk to the Orchid Garden as it was open. The skies opened and we got soaked before we reached the gardens. On arrival the staff were very accommodating and both provided us with umbrellas (we already wore... More

Despite just being a garden with thousands of orchids which are endemic to this region, a stroll through this garden across the central market can revive your spirits and connect you to these beautiful flowers that are bountiful here, in their own natural habitat!

Lots n lots of orchid. Nice to have photo shoot. I would prefer they provide more info regarding the particular orchid instead if just labelling their name. Visit the green house 🏠 where some of the orchid is as big as human face! Recommended time to go is 4pm onwards

The garden is easy to access from boat dock - just a short walk past the Asana. Very large garden, nicely laid out. Several varieties of orchid and bromeliads in flower but not touristic and showy like orchid garden in Singapore, which moves around flowering plants to create eye-popping displays. Free!

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
