Fantastic range of orchids, nicely landscape outdoors, exceptional orchids in the cool room. Was undergoing renovations but could see the full potential.

Pretty gardens!! The orchids are lovely! There were drinks and snacks available. It was very hot and we took quite a while finding it so we were half dead by the time we got there. If you are leaving from the waterfront (main Bazaare) make sure you take one of the little boats that drops you off at the jetty... More

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!

A pleasant place to stroll around looking at all the many varieties of Orchid that are grown here. One of the few good excuses for taking a river taxi over to the opposite side of the river.

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!
