    Must see!!!
    What a wonderful place to learn about Cambodia's flora. Beautiful, well kept and interesting property. Must see when in Siem Reap! Leave a donation on your way out. Well worth it!

    Oasis of peace
    This is an oasis in Siem Reap, beautifully laid out, very educational. The variety of plants was exceptional. There is also a lovely place to eat, drink and rest. I would highly recommend it for something different than temples.

    Botanical gardens Siem Riep
    These lovely gardens are free to go in you can however put a donation in the box as you enter the gardens. The gardens are peaceful to walk through with lots of shady trees. A lot of thought has gone into the layout of the gardens with small ponds and specimen plants and trees. There is a cafe/ restaurant which has indoor and outdoor seating, a comprehensive menu which we thought was a bit expensive. The toilets were clean but you were requested to give 500 Riel ( , no toilet paper was provided. When it comes to the toilets, toilet paper should be provided for guests . These gardens deserve to be successful and should make a charge to tourists coming to the gardens which was a lovely contrast to the busy visit to the Temples

    Better than expected
    We spent a pleasant hour here in the late afternoon and it offered a cool space in some shade. The gardens were much bigger and more extensive than I expected and we saw all kind of unusual flowers. There are several things to occupy children such as tunnels, a tree house, a pond where you can feed a huge group of goldfish, as well as some ostriches and turtles. There is a cafe which sells snacks and ice creams. And it's free to enter! A welcome change to temples.

    Explore the beauty of nature
    The Angkor Botanical Garden is a beautiful place with a variety of things to see and experience, including animals and a nice cafe with great drinks and snacks. However, the prices are a bit higher compared to other coffee shops in town. The garden also has a library for kids and plenty of places for reading, making it a unique and enjoyable experience. The well-maintained gardens show the hard work put into them, making it a highly recommended destination for anyone visiting Siem Reap. Keep in mind that the entry is currently free, but may soon be charged. Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to explore the beauty of nature.

    Worth the visit.
    Beautiful place and well worth a visit. Free entry and a really chilled out cafe to cool off in. Surprisingly not very well promoted and the staff out our hotel didn't know it existed. Only a 3 dollar Tuc Tuc ride from Siem Reap centre.

    Beautiful garden with a great restaurant
    We stopped off here after visiting the nearby Apopo visitor centre. What a hidden gem, a beautiful relaxed but well-kept garden and free entry. We went to the restaurant there for lunch - would definitely recommend- the food was delicious (we had spring rolls, sweet & sour chicken & fried rice with vegetables) & the staff were lovely.

    No-one told us is was a great way to see off an hour or two
    We have visited more than few gardens around the world and this is up there with the best and is free to get in! The gardens are easy and a joy to walk round. There are various pictures we took but there is much more. Some flowers were out and others ready, that's what gardens are! A few ponds, fish, various animals/birds just great. Nice restaurant although like the rest of Cambodia the change you get is in local money (not dollars) Temples are fine but are 3 days it was nice to see something different. Well worth visiting.

    Relaxing way to spend around an hour
    A spacious area with different sections relating to all kinds of plants and even animals. The cages for some of the animals such as the peacocks was a little small, but the rest of the garden was nice to walk around. It is free entry, and there is a small cafe in the middle to rest and recharge at if necessary.

    Charming oasis provided respite from the hustle and bustle.
    A lovely little oasis which provides respite from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap. Really easy to explore and enjoy. Free entrance if you ‘like’ the garden on whichever social media platform you subscribe to. Wifi provided to do so. July is a perfect time to visit as there are so many butterflies and flying insects to see, all of which really added to the experience.

We had a lovely afternoon visiting the garden. It’s on the way to Angkor Wat so a tuk tuk ride from town.
Still being developed but an interesting mix of botany, animals, fish ponds and a very welcome cafe with great air con was good in the heat. We really enjoyed it and we’re surprised it was not better known. It will be soon I think. It was also free to enter!

We had really been looking forward to this, and having mobility issues we saw that there were little golf carts, which we assumed (wrongly) that we could use to get round all the gardens. Unfortuantely we were told we couldn't use them - perhaps because we were foreigners and/or insurance purposes, I really don't know. Perhaps I should have asked if our tuk tuk driver could have come in and driven one. Another niggle was that you are not allowed to take water in and have to leave it on a table on entry - I find this bizarre given the very high temperatures. Again maybe it is to do with rubbish being dropped or to force you into their cafe, but I do not think this is fair at all. We didn't get very far before having to leave sadly. The paths are very uneven too which we struggled with. Such a shame as it looked absolutely beautiful in photos and I would not want to put anyone off going. However, if you have mobility problems then it may not be suitable.

We had pushbikes from our hotel and were just exploring around town when we came across the gardens. Decided would check them out, secure bike park across the road KR1000, entry to gardens is free for all. Extensive gardens divided into sections i.e Palms, Flowering plants, Medicinal plants, Forest. Loads of butterflies. Paths can get a bit confusing but not so large you can’t find your way. Lots of little pools and features. A few things to suit kids , animals, that don’t look sad or abused, fish feeding, play area. Theres a couple of kiosks with food and drinks. Just out of town on the road to temples. Very easy ride on a pushbike. Great for a pleasant and peaceful walk or to give kids an opportunity to run around. Virtually no other visitors when we went. Staff are friendly and helpful.

What a pleasant surprise having visited here 12 months ago! A lot of work and effort has been completed to upgrade various areas of the garden. Particularly taken by the new rose exhibit and various local fruit varieties growing on the trees.
Easily spend an hour or two here and at no cost other than a donation or purchase some fish food!
Well worth a visit.
