  • I visited on a Sunday and while there were lots of people in some small areas, there was still plenty of room. Some very old and established trees. Worth a visit.  more »

  • Nice place to hang out and a good variety of species; however it is more a place to relax than educational. Greenhouses are not open to public and guide information is limited. Also didn't see much orchids in bloom in the orchidarium, but it may not be the right season... I didn't find someone to explain. I was there on holiday season and the park, which is huge, was very lively and filled with families and groups enjoying this quite clean garden. The presidential summer palace is nice but you can't visit it.
  • Good place to hang out in bogor city. Studio cinemax avalable. Good food court provide various menu.
  • One of the best attractions available in Bogor City by far. It offers a plethora of plant specimens originating from several corners of globe. There are lots many spots which are filled native insects and trees. It's even better when the price of admission is very affordable (15,000 IDR). If you have a good camera, this place is an amazing place to capture beautiful photos.
  • This is a great iconic place in Bogor. A huge area of garden in the heart of Bogor. Rich of botany diversity and there is another iconic plant also exist in the garden, The Gigantic Amorphophallus Titanium kind of unique insects catcher plant. It grows up to over 2 metres high
  • Very very nice garden, try come on Indonesia independence day you'll get free entry. Marvelous view and air, instagram ready, a lot of deers. There will be carrot seller all around the garden outside fence on motorcycle where you can buy to feed and touch the deer, they are very nice and calm to touch. Try the tour to the palace if you want to see more awesome architecture and design including the magic mirrors. Be nice not to throw trash and make noise. Take picture close to the huge old tree. Also the red bridge inside the garden. Romatic and spacious!
