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

Well worth a visit to these beautiful gardens. The orchids are spectacular. It is well maintained and it's not just orchids here there are plenty of other trees and plants.

A very beautiful orchid garden with numerous types of orchid. Probably they can add something interesting to the garden to attract more attention such as playground for kids or picturesque scene somewhere in the garden...

Location a bit way off. Unless you are great fans of orchids give the place a miss. Has a reasonable variety of orchids which might interests nature photographers.Entry is free.

Various orchids to see mostly outdoors with some in a greenhouse. This free attraction is worth visiting, cross the river by boat to the landing by the ASTANA and walk up the hill.

I visited during a rainstorm, so may not have seen everything, but still found that the range of orchids was not quite as broad as I was expecting. there are many, many beautiful orchids here, and it's a wonderful place to wander through. But somehow I was expecting more exotic orchids, instead of rows upon rows of incredibly healthy orchids... More
