Coming from the trainstation in Bogor, the gardens are easy to find. Don't take a taxi unless you cannot walk 15 minutes as the Bogor traffic is very crowded. We enjoyed our visit very much. At the mainentrance you have to buy a ticket for 25000 rp which is not much for what you get. The gardens are well maintained... More

A very beautiful and well maintained garden with a cafe located inside. Lots of walking opportunity and locals (especially children) would love to talk to you. Bogor's trip will be incomplete if you leave this garden

Nice place with many big trees. They have orchid garden also. You can come in group and have a nice outing under the giant trees there or if you want to have your quiet moment, you can also find many good places for that. They provide some nice benches along the pathway. The "Red Bridge" is very nice spot to... More

You will find a set of tropical trees and garden, also some collection of special flower as namely "anggrek. Meanwhile you would rest in open areas as a picnic with Couples or Family or Friends in a good climate and view. I recommended this place to you all visit as short holiday.

A good place for walk. If you came with baby. Just go play nearby gate 3, big meadow and its good for picnic. With restaurant nearby. Your baby can run freely. If you come with girlfriend, go for conservative area. If you come with adult. You should try explore the jungle area.

If you need and want eyes "washing" for a moment, you can visit this botanical garden, cause as long as you see a green trees, and you can find a zoology museum, if you lucky, you can see a bangkai flower just one time in year, or you can see a orchids flower garden

Well laid out, well tended, calm in the middle of the city. Pleasant to stroll through and around, with entries/exits from all sides. The unexpected treat was to see a young fellow scale a coconut palm and dislodge said fruit and offer a refreshing and succulent drink. As it was late afternoon and the sky was darkening into the traditional... More

These gardens are definitely worth a trip if you have a few days or more in Jakarta, like I did. The commuter train is super cheap, and although it takes a little while (over an hour) I found it really interesting to view the passing scenes outside the window along the way. I did think twice about going because all... More

Beautiful Grounds, perfect for a stroll with picturesque lakes and plenty of spots to relax and chill. More importantly, it would be a perfect day to just walk about and soak up the amazing and well kept garden. I can spend hours and hours here, I will definitely come back again. Don't miss the beautiful monument that pays respect to... More
