Almost didn't go in because of the extremely rude guard at the gate, but once inside the cave leading up to the garden was completely worth it alone. Inside of the garden was amazing. If you love orchids or carnivorous plants you have to go...More

Unless someone told you about this place, you'd never know it was here. It's in an underground cave off the beaten path. From the outside, it looks industrial, but once you get in there, it's like being in a rain forest of orchids. The workers...More

Imagine a place where they grow orchids from all over the world. Now imagine that it’s located in a cave. Not a dark, dank, cave with uneven floors, mud, stalactites, and stalagmites, but a well-lit clean dry underground storage space with a paved floor and...More
