We were there when everything wasn't in bloom but it is a good place to take a morning or afternoon stroll. There were plenty of trails and plants to see there and would have been lovely to see the blooming flowers.

Sarawak is famous for it's flora and fauna. So with big hopes we set to see the orchid garden in Kuching. It's fun getting there as you need to take a boat across the river to get there. and then a long walk past the Astana. I expected a vast range of orchids. I was sadly disappointed. The place is...

We took a long walk from Fort Margharita to the Orchid Garden only to find it is closed on Mondays. Neither the hotel (Riverside Majestic) or the staff at the Fort mentioned this when we asked them for directions. Best take the ferry across the river to the Istana landing and it is a short walk from there and is... More

Certainly an abundance of blooming orchids! I was truly amazed that the plants were all so healthy! Sarawak has many more orchid species - the ones here are the more common lowland species, but they are well worth the visit. Entry to the Orchid Garden is free, and it is easily accessible via a 'tambang' boat ride across the Sarawak... More

I spend my day with my mom here. My mom really loves orchids. It is a nice place to bring your mother to spend a blooming day. The area is also spacious and you cannot be bored being here, if you really love flowers especially orchids, this is the place.

The garden is filled with various orchid varieties. The flowers are well maintained. There is a small canteen where you can buy drinks at the entrance. There isn't much to do other than look at flowers, so it isn't terribly exciting.

There were many species of orchids to see and take photos, the maintenance of the place is not too bad. I got there at 5pm and had 1 hour to view the entire place. 1 hour was enough time for my friends and I to enjoy the flowers, take photos and videos of the place. If you're an avid flower... More
