If you are an orchid lover this place is for you
you need to cross the river by a boat which will cost you about 1 RM and it about 10 min walk from the jetty.
If you are expecting to see many species and hybrid that are grown in a temperature control environment and beautifully presented, You will be disappointed. However if you would like to observe orchids like vanda , cattleya and dendrobium in their warm, sunny , humid natural environment, it is a brilliant place. There are some cool growing orchid in the cool house.

It is well kept and free.Don't miss it if you are in Kuching.

Catch the boat from the base of the tower on Kuching Promenade to the wharf between the Astana and the State Legislative building. Then follow the signs. Google maps took us on a wild goose chase, and the address on TA is incorrect.

This is an Orchid Garden situated near the Astana in Kuching.

There's two main ways to get there from Kuching city. Either by road of by boat across the river to the opposite side of the esplanade/waterfront of the Sarawak River.

The park has different species of Orchids being planted around the area. Some in the Green House. The size of the park is reasonable enough to have a good walk around with some areas to sit and rest if required.

I think this is a reasonable park featuring orchids. The only thing that can make it better is to have more labeling for the different species as only a few plants or orchids in the area are being labeled.

The admission is free, so it's all good! :)

Almost exclusively Vanda cultivars. I would have loved to see the collection house native species. Boat ride a-x river, nice short walk to garden past parliament house and other buildings worth viewing. Mind blown over Licuala orbicularis palm
