  • 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.
  • Beautiful getaway if you have been in the city for some time. Everything is taken good care of & enough toilets (if you are European, take toilet paper with you because they don't have it here). There's sometimes music, people who have a picnic and it is all fine. The garden it's amazing!
  • Had fun walking around and exploring trails. Too bad it wasn't flowering season. Cleaner than I expected but some of the 'You Are Here' maps were faded, so practically useless. Happy that we have such a space here in Indonesia. Unfortunately some of the trees are scratched with initials and stuff. I mean, we get it. You were here. Nobody cares! Stop doing it and have some damn respect and appreciation.
  • Bogor botanical garden is like a huge park where we can find almost any sample of plants from all over the world. Some of plants there are categorized as rare plants. It takes a full day to explore whole area. It is also a good place for jogging in the morning.
  • Great place for taking family members and friends to hang out. We can enjoy the place by walking through a beautiful gardens and forest or you can hire or bring a bicycle or use your cars and see the great view from the botanical garden. You can also observe the many kinds of animals from Indonesia in the Zoology Museum with the skeleton of the great Blue Whale from many years ago. This Botanical Garden has been here for 2 centuries. Hope that our government will preserve this place always as a national treasure of Indonesia

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.
