The indonesians called this place Kebun Raya Bogor (Bogor Grand Garden). It's a big garden that conserves of rare trees and herbs. It also has Raflesia Arnoldi and Amorphophallus titanum. Very rare and huge flowers in the world. From my latest visit, I just realised that it also has a rich collection of cactus. So beautiful. In the garden there... More

You must visit this place if you're in Bogor. This place is open until 6 pm but some conservatories like griya anggrek (orchid greenhouse) are open just until 3.30 pm. So if you want to explore this garden, please visit this place in the morning. The best spots in this huge garden are in front of the palace, and around... More

Bogor Botanical Garden is definitely the icon of Bogor. Usually very crowded during weekends and holidays. You have to pay entrance fee to get in here. The fee is quite affordable, 15k per person for domestic tourists and 26k for foreigners. The entrance fee also include Zoology Museum. You can also visit Istana Bogor inside the garden. But too bad... More

It is very relaxing to lay on the grass or just strolling and enjoying the green views of Bogor Botanical Garden. Besides I considered it quite educational for teenagers and kids to know more. However the views themselves are not spectacular and it is not very organized, tidy or clean. And still need better management.

Once we have arrived at Bogor city, this place is a must to visit. Fresh air, nice view, and botanical knowledge are some advantages to get. In addition, zoological museum inside the area will complete the visit. Please keep the garden clean, with easy access to food stall in addition.

It was a nice walk through the park, but I would not recommend travellers to come all the way to Bogor just for the gardens. I liked gardens in Singapore and Munduk (Bali) much more.
