Lots of beautiful plants and scenery. The orchid house is worth a stop and features hundreds of beautiful orchids. Lots of fountains and water features. Plenty of rest rooms available. The... More

Such a great place in the middle of the town. You can escape from hectic Bogor. Fresh air when walking in the morning, I love it!

This place has a ton of plants, flowers, and lovely walkways. The entry was 25k in local currency. We spent a couple of hours walking around there and it was lovely, beautiful scenery.

Well Bogor itself is an escape, so its like an escape within an escape. Set in the hear of the city, the lavish botanical gardens have dedicated nooks to ferns, Mexicans, orchids, you name it. While we slowly drove through it, due to the extreme paucity of time that conferences leave you with, it is an amazing place to just... More

You will find more than 917 species of plants in this garden, very beautiful with its famous red hanging bridge. Such a perfect place to stroll around for a mind relaxing.

A very green and huge park. Has many old trees that is magnificent only nature lover's can appreciate. When enter this park, go to the left side first then explore the remaining right side coz the left side is smaller. If you only plan to explore only part of it, go straight to the right all the way down to... More

Unless they put more information signs or give you a map and keep the whole Park clean, you shouldn't go there. Especially since bogor is a terribly difficult city to find cheap accommodation in (we didn't succeed in this quest). We walked around the garden twice and didn't even find the zoological museum because of the lack of signs. The... More
