The weather is also much more reasonable than Jakarta's so walking around the park is enjoyable. Bogor is named a city of rain for a reason, as it almost rain everyday there. Apparently this made the city a perfect place for plants cultivation! Founded in the colonial era as 's Lands Plantentuin te Buitenzorg in 1817, this garden is the... More

A great day escape from the concrete of Jakarta. Can be pretty busy on the weekends though. But if you can get there during the week it's lovely. Some beautiful plants and huge trees, plenty of space to relax. The food in the restaurant is pretty average.

It was refreshing and peaceful to walk through the gardens after the rain. I was most astonished by the Mexican garden. I have no idea how they grow such arid cacti in such a wet climate. The zoo was also interesting. All the animals are preserved, many are extinct and thus not possible to see in real life. Many had... More

If you want to the Botanical Garden main gate, it's a crowed street, redolent with the smells of fresh and not-so-fresh produce in the market stalls across the street. More often than not, the streets are wet jumping over the puddles while avoiding the traffic makes one wonder "is this worth it?". But walk into the garden and it's a... More

What a nice green haven of peace, with the mist in the trees after a rain. Definitely worth a long walk...

Family gathering under the big trees comforts you and makes you realise that God's creations are a lot more than great. Unfortunately, there are still many fools that not respect these creations by throwing garbages everywhere but the trash-cans.

The ticket price is not really expensive. It worth all we can see there. Thematic gardens, zoology museum, and many nature insight.
