  • 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.
  • I love this place. It has clean environment, many different plants that eye catching. And there are many destinations too, one of them that mostly i like is Orchid House. Many ice cream booth too. Always feel relaxed and peaceful in this place. I recommend this.
  • It's one of the centers for natural conservations in Indonesia located in Bogor City West Java situated appropriately in the middle of Bogor growing city center, yet there are lots of exotic tropical trees and plants there. It's the main heart of breathing and the icon of Bogor City. It helps a lot in the conservation of water, plants and trees, including several animals living wildly inside. It is also one of the best reminders for Indonesians to keep conserving the natural environments and their associated elements both physically and spiritually. It has got its original history long way back to Thomas Stamford Raffles, through the Independence Day Of Indonesia,and will live until today and days forwards in the future. Please help promote the Kebun Raya Bogor to be internationally recognized.
  • There are numbers of different gardens here, like: Aquatic Garden, Mexico Garden, Orchid, Herbarium, Hanging Garden and more. There is a food truck near the mosque, beside the large grass field, this is the favourite spot to buy some foods and drinks. The grass field is the perfect picnic spot, just make sure bring your own mat and pick your trash.
  • A great place for walking around and appreciating Indonesia's floral biodiversity. The reason why I go to Bogor all the time! So refreshing and peaceful. What's unfortunate is they still let cars and even motorbikes driving around disturbing the pedestrians.

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.
