If you are a botanist and want to see many unusual species of orchids this would be your place. However, if you are just looking for lots of pretty flowers, this is disappointing. Most of the orchids there were so small that you would pass right by without even noticing them. This was a guided tour and the guide did provide magnifying glasses and pointed out where the tiny orchids were. However, even under magnification the orchids were not very impressive. The only orchid we recognized was one phalaenopsis but the guide dismissed this flower as a “hybrid” not a pure species.
