As a long time resident of Bogor, I have been to Kebun Raya Bogor many times and it is never boring. The place is a haven in the craziness if traveling around the Greater Jakarta area and frankly the history is amazing. Originally developed a few hundred years ago, it is beautifully landscaped. The gardens also has the Museum Zoology... More

Come during weekday if you want to drive around your car inside this vast garden. It has a lot of flora collections that some even age for few hundred years. One of the presidential palace located inside this garden. You could pick a spot just about anywhere and do your picnic and very exciting.

As an expat in Jakarta, this place is an oasis. So nice to be amongst trees and flowers. Lots of people but nothing like the craziness outside in the streets. The palace is beautiful as are the Mexican gardens, water gardens, orchid house, and hanging bridges. Just walking around with no particular destination was so nice. Make sure you have... More

We have visited these gardens many times over the last 5 years. They are always beautiful and always well worth the effort of walking around in them. We live in Bogor and always take guests here. They are much tidier and cleaner than before. One thing I don't like is that you are allowed to drive your car through on... More

Writing about this location is not so difficult, since it's has been known since I was a child. This park is a great location for family gathering and for a larger mass gathering. Fresh air is a guarantee for a healthy life, will be found in this place.

Also, they have garden car to visit all garden area. They also allow us to bring our own bike, charged only IDR 5K. Entrance fee is including ticket to Museum... More

Arrived here for a site vidit with colleagues. We were asked to use a bus type vehicle. The supposed-to-be tour leader could not speak English well and kept talking to the phone while he was supposed to be explaining what we are driving through. It was a pretty disappointing expeience for such a nice place.
