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

Tens of thousands of orchids. Very tranquil setting and free! Staff is very friendly. If you're into orchids check it out.

Never have I known the variety of orchids, until I visited this garden. It is stunning and worth a visit. Tip: take the boats that leave from the Western side of the Waterfront. Otherwise it'll be very hard to get there (and I speak from experience...)

Some of the user give a high rating for this garden. But for me, it's over rated. Nothing much special and some rubbish around the garden.

We took a small boat to cross the river and walked to Sarawak orchid garden. We were surprised it was free. The place is not so big but pretty good selections of orchid there. Not so many people when we were there. We were three during weekdays. Enjoying looking, admiring and taking pictures of the orchid. So quiet and peaceful.

Visit my hometown Kuching, must take a stroll at our Sarawak Orchid Garden which is about half an hour drive from the city centre. No entrance fee is charged. You can see a great collection of local and hybrid orchids blooming beautifully. Best of all if you visit this orchid garden during the Kuching International Orchid Show which is held... More

This was absolutely incredible! If you have any time while in the area it is well worth the walk through the park. and it is free of charge! Be wary of hot weather in the afternoon.
