    The Park is really well laid out, full of paths, fountains and places to sit. There are so many varieties of plants and flowers: interesting is the garden of aquatic plants, cacti and orchids. Very relaxing place and there is also a café where you can stop for a drink. Downside: it's very dirty and you have trash everywhere in the beds of the rivers!!!

    Welcome to the little forest in the center of Bogor City! Good atmosphere and environment. Awesome place for family in the weekend. There are many bikes u can rent. The scenery was amazing! I love this place so much!

    Perhaps it's prejudice since I love parks, but I loved the experience walking around the gardens. It was beautiful and enjoyable. There was a restaurant, too, with decent food. A picnic would be nice there, shame I didn't prepare enough when I went there. However, I was upset that people threw plastic wrappings, especially candies, on the ground carelessly while a bin was available just several metres away!

    Bogor's landmark. Located near Bogor Station so if you came from Jakarta, its better for using commuter line (train), arrive at Bogor station and go there by walk. This place is so natural, green, fresh and rejuvenating. There are hundreds or even thousands various plants here. Its a great place to bring your kids. In this area also placed Bogor Palace which is a Presidential office/home. This place has about 4 entrance but i forgot the entrance fee. If you had bought the ticket, keep it until you left the garden. Just for risk mitigation if something happened and you have to show your ticket.

    We visited the fabulous Bogor Botanical Gardens as part of a guided LSI City Tour. It was a beautiful, lush, green oasis outside of the hectic Jakarta pace. It's a great day out for a family, and my personal favourite was the Orchid Gardens (housed in their own building), featuring rare, indigenous, and hybrid orchids. The restaurant, with an amazing view of the fountains and gardens, was also a treat!

    I am so impressive with the atmosphere in this garden, it is cool and relaxing you body and soul. Walking all the paths make you getting new inspiration and knowledge. Make you adore the nature more and more. It is not enough to see every detail in a day. Bogor people are lucky to have this park.

Where to stay in Bogor

Although it's a fairly big city with plenty of things to do, Bogor hasn't developed its tourist infrastructure at the same rate as other places in Indonesia. That makes it difficult to find budget accommodations, with prices in Bogor generally more expensive than across the rest of West Java. You can find mid-range options throughout the city, especially close to the botanical gardens and presidential palace. If you're looking to stay at a larger, more luxurious resort, check the countryside surrounding the city.
