Plan 30 mins to observe the whole garden. It is not the biggest orchid collection in the world, but the variety is good, and all the flowers are wonderful. Not far from Main bazaar, so worth the visit

You can walk across the new pedestrian bridge or take a 1r ferry across the river. The orchid garden is about 100m from the bridge. The garden has an outdoor area and a "cooling" area that is enclosed. It is a nice way to spend...More

Everyone who is fascinated by orchids needs to visit the orchid park. Since the new bridge in Kuching has been built, the park is reachable within minutes. A good 200 meters from the bridge on the right side of the road is the entrance to...More

I read the reviews before I visited the garden, yet I have no idea how the entire garden looked. Therefore I'm here just to add more photos.
