Even if you aren't into orchids and tropical flowers, you will be impressed. Orchids range from tiny to huge. The rainforest area and lily pond are also worth visiting.

Beautiful day scenery! Quiet lush, and was nice looking at all the orchids and different flowers that grow there. At the end of the tour, they let you walk around and then have a cold beverage waiting for you.

If you really love orchids you must see the garden of the sleeping giant! The people that run the gardens are very knowledgeable about all of the types of flowers and plants that are there. It’s very peaceful and a must see.
