Located near the Jagorawi toll exit, this garden is very easy to spot. Finding a parking lot is something different. We have to take street parking near main entrance or post office (2th entrance). Ticket was 15K Rupiahs per person, including Zoology Museum inside the garden. The garden is very big, we need 2-3 hours to explore all side of... More

Have not been here for more than 5 years, still feel the same, except that many food stalls inside (from ice cream to packaged meals). Probably need to be managed properly. I think it still best place for family to have a picnic and let the kids rolling on the grass. For those who don't want to be bothered and... More

I visited this park with my mother, and I felt this incredible park. The cool air is protected by thousands of trees that grow solidly in the tourist area. the atmosphere seemed to make visitors feel at home Yeaah ... it feels like home.

We had high expectations of the Botanical Gardens en of course it is beautiful. But actually we found it "just" a big park. Maybe it is because we are no experts about nature that we don't see the value. We had a nice walk and en enjoyed the restaurant in the garden were you have a nice terrace and the... More

The Gardens have a lot of history to share besides the plants/flowers/trees. Entrance is relatively cheap (roughly Rp 10,000-20,000 each dependent on admission type). Worth a look if passing through Bogor. Recommend getting a map if possible and reading about the grounds ahead of time so you know what to expect and what to seek out. Some people outside the...

Bogor is a nice place to go and relax when staying in busy Jakarta. However, if you planning to travel to another islands, there is no need as you'll sea everything along the day :)

Nice place to enjoy nature with your family. Don't forget to bring your picnic stuff. You can also visit Zoology Museum and many flower houses (Orchid, etc). If you don't bring the food, you can also enjoy the eat street and Dedaunan Cafe inside.

I came to this park weekly to enjoy the scenery meanwhile I do jogging or just walks. Inside you can find a very cozy atmosphere surrounded by trees and plants, yet it not look spooky. There are also mini garden inside the park, such orchid garden, Mexican theme garden and so on. The park is splitted by Ciliwung river, so... More
