Gardens have everything: moved lawns with flower beds, wild forests with hudge trees and undergrowth, bananas blossoming and bearing fruit, pawed walkways and paths, ponds. Open sunlit spaces and benches in the shade beneath enormous tropical trees.

Let's be up front and say you will need to have realistic expectations if you have seen botanical gardens elsewhere in the world, but the Bogor Botanical gardens are still worth a visit for their historical value and the fact they are such a huge green space near one of the most densely packed areas/cities of the world.
