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.

Nice to venture over the other side of the river and see a free display of orchids. A nice setting and just up the road from Astana, so get to view both.

Catch the boat from the base of the tower on Kuching Promenade to the wharf between the Astana and the State Legislative building. Then follow the signs. Google maps took us on a wild goose chase, and the address on TA is incorrect.

Some in the Green House. The size... More

Almost exclusively Vanda cultivars. I would have loved to see the collection house native species. Boat ride a-x river, nice short walk to garden past parliament house and other buildings worth viewing. Mind blown over Licuala orbicularis palm

We were welcomed by friendly staff, the place was clean and well-cared for, the flowers were blooming, and no entrance fee! After spending a lot on various attractions in Kuching, we were grateful for something free yet awesome. A must visit for flower-lovers.
