  • A botanic garden founded by Mrs Raffles after Mr Raffles had founded London Zoo and Singapore's Botanic garden. A peaceful area in a mass of scooters. Even though Kebun Raya is full of some great tree...  more »

  • Such as a place for chilling and enjoying the day in Bogor. It is located in the downtown and very easy to reach. For those who travelling by commuter line, it's just only need about 10 minutes walk form Bogor Station. Bogor Botanical Garden is so huge. You can explore it by walking among the trees or rent a bike.
  • Refreshing air in the middle of the city. Good view. Good place to hangout with friends and family. Take a picture or just needa fresh air. Good for educate children about trees and plant. Nowadays you can go inside with car. But it make the place crowded.
  • Good place to spend with your family. There are many spots to look. You can spend a whole day here. I suggest to come either from morning or late noon to avoid blazing sunlight. On weekend the traffic is definitely stressing out, hence you should go out a little earlier from home. Good for couples too, if you guys into walking in nature and simply just do picnic.
  • Bogor botanical gardens are a wonderful weekend get away for those who miss the green in jakarta s glass jungle. Luckily we went on a non sunny but no rain day and it was really nice. The weather is beautiful. Try eating from outside as there is just gone restaurant inside the garden with really poor service. Although the view from the restaurant is really nice and I would recommend sitting there for a coffee or a drink.
  • For those who love science or the shades of gigantic trees, this place is definitely a destination. Being in the heart of Bogor, this place is accessible. This place keeps many amazing species, stories, and history. This place is also a great spot to spend time with family, picnic, with many selfie spots. Moreover, next to the garden, there's a mall where you can indulge yourself in the shops. I will always come back here
