Owner description: Who knew there were so many varieties of orchids? This park is an absolute treat for orchid lovers, with 3,000 species that include a whopping 800 from Malaysia. This soothing garden is the perfect place to get some respite from the frenetic city while feasting your eyes on brilliant blossoms.

“Tranquility in a busy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Sited within the main botanical gardens area of KL, near the bird park. This small orchid garden gives a nice break from the bustle of the city. Entrance is free, so worth a visit. You can comfortably see the whole garden in an hour though, so this isn't a big trip out! The people in the little shops were very friendly and kind.

“WOW”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Orchid Park? I really love this idea... Specially when it's clean and wonderful... With a large variety of orchid and workers planting silently, I really loved Malaysia's signature flower (perhaps).

“An excuse for orchid mongers to get business”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

While there are a lot of Orchids in the park you might see 20 -30 varieties or so and then a lot of plants without any flowers as it seems the nice ones are all being collected by the sales people who then also want to charge for you to take pictures of them. So while the park is free it is a bit of waste of time as you will surely find more varieties just walking around in the various venues in town. It would be better to charge something and make sure you can see the beautiful variety of orchids that do exist in Malaysia. You will also find about 10 of the varieties in the birdpark

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

It is a nice and very quiet park with, as to be expected, lots of beautiful orchids. There was also a great view of KL as its elevated.
