Well maintained, clean & green garden. Fresh air and the smell of the woods are therapeutic. Good to jog or brisk walk. It would be nice if there's a little cafe so that visitors can relax and enjoy the serenity or read books while having...More

Jakarta to Bogor Botanical Gardens (9 Replies)
I will have a full free day in Jakarta during the week of Feb 9th and would like to visit Bogor Botanical Gardens. I would be happy with a group tour, or an English speaking guide but neither is really necessary. Any suggestions regarding tours and/or transportation from a downtown hotel?

GoodWords, hello and welcome to TA forums! Unfortunately all organized tour groups and bus offers that you may jin are CANCELLED at the moment due to low demand. The thing you can do: hire a car+ driver for one day and visit the Gardens on your own. You do not need any guide etc, as the history of the Bogor Botanical is well described in many on-line resources and walk through the garden itself is easy. Hot and humid too, of course.... For rents a car + driver you can check Blue Bird...More

Hey vvytukas, To be absolutely brief: your plan is way too hectic and dependable on absolutely perfect timings with some naive mistakes ( like beach expectations in Jakarta) which makes it unrealistic. One local flight delay or cancellation ( or you missing flight due to the traffic, for example) turns your planning into the avalanche of unfortunate events...

I have got 2 quotations for the car + driver+ fuel from 31 to 2 apr (3 days). The negotiated price is IDR 2,900,000 for 12 hrs per day. Is the price ok? and another one ? you must compare also what car you use here.
