You can visit the palace garden during your visit to the botanical garden. The palace however was closed for visitors. The garden itself is nice to see and one of the best parts of the botanical garden.

If you're so consumed by the hectic Jakarta, staying in Bogor for a weekend getaway is a great idea. Visiting Bogor Palace is a must-do to include in your itinerary. Here you will find tranquility; fresh air, green grass, and of course the majestic yet humble-looking palace. Oh and don't forget to play with the spotted deers!
