  • A must see if you are in Miami area. There are a lot of tropical fruit trees and epiphytes of the rain forests. The back of the garden is key Biscayne, awesome view. Hopefully, they will grow even more varieties of rare plants in the tropics.

  • A true gem! It's an alternative to the traditional botanical garden. We saw wildlife and plenty in bloom. Absolutely gorgeous, we spent three hours here.

  • This place is close to seeing so many variety of plants that we see back home in India...loved the mango picking....they were awesome

  • The Kampong garden is definitely a place you need to take your time in. It is one of five National Tropical Botanical Gardens, the other four of which are in Hawaii. The property overall is quite small, but is loaded with a huge diversity of plant species. It is easy to walk through in a few minutes if you don't take the time to enjoy the garden's ambience. I believe the regular admission fee was $15, but for myself as a student it was $10. I sent an email as per instructions on the website, stated the date and time I wanted to visit, and that I was a student. My email was replied to very quickly. When I rang in at the front gate I stated my name, and was promptly allowed inside. I took advantage of the water fountain and shade of the Fairchild house in the summer heat. The architecture was clearly designed with Indonesian influences. A large wood carving of the mythical Garuda is a beautiful focal point in the house's foyer. The view of Biscayne Bay is yet another distinguishing feature of the estate. The impeccable landscaping and abundance of flowers makes this area perfect for a photoshoot or picnic. Adjacent properties are multi-million dollar homes, which speaks to the monetary value/upkeep of the garden itself. The front area of the house, which one drives through on their way to parking, is full of botanical novelties which include fruit trees grafted together in interesting combinations. Flocks of toucans can be seen nesting in the trees, and one may even find a few untouched fruits to taste. Ultimately, you need to be patient and willing to explore ALL of the garden to get the full Kampong experience. This can be especially difficult for visitors who only want to enjoy the pretty sights and then move on. I recommend bringing a lunch or book, and definitely a camera if you really want to immerse yourself in the environment here.

  • If you are into touring gardens please don't waste your money on this. It's 60 bucks for a family of four and you will be back in your car in about 10 minutes. I've been to 100s of gardens and this should not be on any public list. it's just a little private house that you can't tour and some trees. I beg you to go elsewhere like Fairchild or Pinecrest or Vizcaya. They are actual gardens and cheaper. I honestly felt ripped off and angry that they are in the Web as a botanical garden. you drive up to a house not a public place and have to try to find someone to buzz you in the gate. The lady who greater us was pleasant but not worth the extreme hefty price. She chats with you a bit about the place and then sends you to walk to look at the ocean a few trees and then leave.
