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. The gardens are quiet and peaceful and are very easy to go around. Do go into the large greenhouse for some different plants. The entrance is still free but would... More

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.

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

I visited the Orchid Gardens on a Kuching cycle tour and was blown away by the incredible assortment of Orchids on display. This is a real gem.
