Just 100 m from the Astana there is a quiet Orchid Park - no entry fee. A waterfall and a nice walkaway. In hot days you would welcome the cooling house on the right side.

The garden was difficult to find as there aren't enough signposts, but only "mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun". There were few people walking about to ask directions. Best to get a taxi. We walked from the Astana and was told...More

If you like flowers you should visit this free attraction in Kuching. Of course not all the orchids are in flower just when you want them to be but enough are to make the visit worthwhile. A lovely peaceful time wandering through the attractive gardens...More

To reach the orchid garden, you have to cross the river. It's RM1 and entrance is free. There are so many varieties of orchids here but not all are in bloom. The lovely landscaped garden is quiet and peaceful. A nice place to spend some...More

Nice garden to walk around and spend 1-2hrs relaxing, taking photos & learning orchid names. Workers are very attentive in constantly changing the non flowered pots with flowered pots. Plenty of colourful orchids and other plants as well. The right path leads to a man...More

Well, what's in the name. There are loads of orchids in this garden. It's free, the flowers are beautiful, they have many species. Wouldn't spend too much time here, but it's nice to kill time if you have time spare.

We visit in the beginning of August but there were almost no orchids at all. In this time of year it is useless to visit these gardens.

The biggest challenge was getting there. It should be easy. It actually IS easy. A little river boat crossing near the new steel suspension bridge under construction cost 1 Ringgit. Then 200m walk directly away from the river. Everyone loves orchids, even if they don't...More

I can't remember the opening hours but definitely take a little ferry across the river and walk. It is not far at all. You can't go in but you can see the Astana and Chief Ministers residence on either side of the road. The... More
