  • A garden at the center of Bogor City, a regency in West Java province. It is a wonderful legacy of Dutch Colonial. It has a resting president palace, big green lawn designated for spotted deers, open area for Kids to play, network of roads for cars to access every corner of the garden, and benches for visitors to enjoy the beauty of the garden. It has a big restaurant, a stylish, looks modern appearance, with outdoor tables in terraces overlooking the top of Trees in the garden. The entrance ticket is pretty cheap. Overall the garden looks really well maintained. Visitors are allowed to bring food and drinks and i can clearly see here and there groups of families lay their banquet under shades on green grass. The landscape varies inside: river runs through and some bridges enrich the looks of the garden, steps climb steep hills, ponds dot here and there, dark space under heavy bush and tall Trees, birds and insects are plenty, sounds of cricket fill the garden. A perfect place to be connected back to nature. A heaven for all ages to enjoy the nature, to get inspiration, to relieve stress, to have short personal retreat and a right place to consider our position and role in nature.
  • I think there's no other place in Java that has this much flora collections, you can find many interesting trees, flowers, and plants inside. Most of the flora here has a plate containing their name, but that's just about it. It is very relaxing for jogging at weekend. Relatively cool, even at full daylight. There are public restrooms here. Be mindful where they are at, might be helpful to know it, since it will be a long walk from one to another. Maps there might not be clear, so you can always look at your Google map of your current position.
  • Must visit place. Better come on weekday so you can bring your own vehicle to tour inside. Inside there also available car n caddy for touring by paying 25k rupiah each person. You can enjoy to the view also from cafe grand garden while enjoying your drink n food. Taste good also.
  • good place. if you want to go here, please relax your feet first. exactly good place for hanging out with your family. there is a restaurant inside and the foods are great. don't forget to bring your camera.
  • Tempat jalan-jalan di kerindangan pepohonan. Ada pengaturan area tematik, meski tetap lebih asyik menikmati koleksi-koleksi tanaman lama. Yang terbaik tetap di museum zoologi yang ada di dalam area kebun raya. Bonus menikmati Istana Kepresidenan dari halaman belakang. Ada makam keramat dan toko bibit tanaman & bunga juga. Lebih nyaman didatangi di luar musim liburan, biar tidak ketemu pengunjung yang ramai seperti pasar.
