  • hidden wonderful attraction in downtown Kuching. Free entrance. if you like flora, it will take at least a hour to look around. plus beautiful birds might keep you busy lookout up them. closed at 17:30, so come earlier. and don't forget to prepare for mosquitos!
  • A magical and free garden to visit. Fairly extensive. Make sure to stop to smell some of the flowers, many have interesting aromas.
  • Admission is free (at least when I went there), and you can see the techniques they use to cultivate the orchids. There are various orchids planted in the area, so if you like orchids or are looking for a type of orchid, this might be the place for you.
  • I appreciate of effort from all people working here to keep this garden beautiful, lively and free ^^ When I visited here, I could see a couple make a wedding picture & wear traditional outfit. It's very nice. And also the flower were blooming shinning. It is very nice too spend time here. It takes around 30 -45 min depend on your enjoying.
  • Was hoping for some great flowers but all we found was the same variety. Needs more attention if this place is to keep up with it's name.
