Beautiful gardens for a visit, not too large but nicely presented. There is a snack bar and clean toilets . Enjoyed the river taxi trip across from Kuching to get there. You can also have an hours boat ride on the river for not many Ringits, we had the boat to ourselves, well worth the money.

This is a beautiful collection of a wide variety of orchids. You can stroll around at your own pace and see beautiful flowers. It is very hot here as most of it is open and even the 'cool house' is not all that cool. I would strongly suggest bringing a sun umbrella, it helps a lot! Also, bring a bottle... More

Remember Monday is closed!! How to get here: Take a boat from waterfront, ask a man go to "Astana". The garden is located just opposite of Astana. Open Tue~Sun 9am to 6pm. From here you can not go to Fort Margherita directly. You have to go back to Waterfront by a boat again or ask a boatman to take you... More

Awesome place to simply relax or to observe the large number of different orchids growing in the garden. If in Kuching, this garden is really recommended.

Vast varieties of orchid plants on display for FREE viewing. No admission fee. However, NO brochure or path map was given. Guess visitors would not mind to pay RM1--2 for a well prepared brochure, or a higher price for well printed booklet. Overall rating : Very good but under-appreciated. p/s : Please note that the address given is WRONG !... More

Very peaceful and varied garden. We took a boat for 1 ringitt to cross the river and walked about 300 metres the other side to find it. Its a peaceful place to spend an hour or so.

This is such a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. We came on a Sunday afternoon and there was no one! No crowds. The flowers and the gardens really impressive. It's worth the journey to visit.

A wonderful collection of countless specimens enjoyed whilst seemingly having a 'walk in the park'. Very quiet when we were there. Wonderful, and a must for even the casual gardener.

Lovely orchid display and free! Well laid out display with many perfect plants. Small cafe with drinks at very reasonable prices. Just over the river by small boat ferry followed by a short walk are the orchid gardens. Large number of good quality plants well displayed. Really a bargain and very peaceful. Very quiet when we visited.
