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.

What a beautiful and colourful place! A feast for the eye and soul, we just couldn't stop taking photos. The small cafe however doesn't have many options for snacks or food, e.g. no fresh food.

The orchids are so beautiful and so colorful. So many species large and small. Since my last visit the waterfall gardens have been competed and really adds to the area.

Orchid gardens tend to be 'faux attractions' but this one is just mind-blowing. Acres and acres of orchids in any shape and color. Just unbelievable. On top, it's FREE - just cross the river 'sampang style' at the Jetty / Square Tower: 0.5 RH/person

What a pleasant little find, just across the river and a short walk. Lots of colour not crowded and a nice way to spend a couple of hours and it's free.

Going to the orchid garden is worth it purely for the 'bot tambang' journey across the river from Kuching waterfront. The orchids are well maintained and the park is very clean. Give yourself up to an hour here to wander around, and bring along your camera.
