“Nice display, but I think the Taiwanese have overtaken”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

If you are an orchid buff, you'd go where the orchids are.

This is really more a shop, than a garden. The staff are well aware of shipping difficulties to the rest of the US and to Europe, but not so sure about the laws for Asian countries.

While there were some interesting crosses, I think there are better quality orchids in Taiwan nowadays.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Soo neat to see all of the different varities of orchids there. I still can't decide which one was my favorite if I had to choose one.
