Best orchid garden I have been too in layout and display of every type of orchid. Can be very hot so take umbrella sun cream and water. Should be better advertised but delightful and recommend. No admission charge either. Enjoy.

Reached by walking across the lovely pedestrian bridge. It's not very well signposted but it's on the left of the beautiful Sarawak legislative assembly building. Access is free and it’s a lovely walk around the Orchids. Small cafe for drinks/ice creams.

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
