Entry is free and It was a pleasent stroll from the the boat ride across the Sarawak River. The gardens are well maintained. Many varieties of orchids were in bloom during August. I have many great pictures, definately too many... More

My cousin and I went to the Sarawak Orchid Garden while we were on a bike trip around Kuching, and overall, this place is kind of boring but it does have a lot of orchids. We were pretty much the only ones here the entire time we were here. We walked around the gardens for a few minutes, but the... More

We made a short stop here on the way to buy the Sarawak layer cake. I was surprised that entrance was free and very pleased that the garden (and the toilets) was clean and well maintained. There are many different varieties of Orchids and some other plants there. It can be very hot to walk around on a sunny afternoon,... More

You can tell that the management have vast experience in running an orchid garden. The place is well maintain and the horticulture system implemented is impressive. I will definitely recommend this place for people who love orchids to make a visit.

Orchids vary greatly in size, colour, preferences for single or multiple blooms on each stem, but they have in common a delicate intricacy in their design that makes it worth ambling slowly around a specialist garden like this. Even an ordinary camera, properly set, can capture their stunning beauty. Serious camera lovers would have a fine time at this modest... More

A good excuse to get a little boat across the river for 50c. It was a very pleasant way to spend an hour and I'm not that into orchids, but it was well maintained, free and pretty. A good place to take a picnic. It was very empty when we visited (Saturday morning in July) so it was very peaceful.... More
