  • 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 »

  • Great environment, the greenery are fascinating, fresh air, totally a great place for relaxing. You can learn so much about plants. They have broad varieties of plants, from cacti to tropical plant. It is also a great place to run or ride a bicycle. They have orchid house, which is a special place where you can find almost every kind of orchids. They have Mexico Park where you can find varieties of cacti. They have this large field with pond where you can play, relax, picnic, etc. They have several restaurants with moderate to quite expensive range of price. The ticket price is cheap. I recommend to bring bicycle if you want to explore every corner of this garden, because the place are HUGE, but if you don't have any, you can rent it.
  • Its a huge botanical garden for a start. It has massive collection of trees that are from Indonesia. A good place to start research if there is a need to research on something. A good place to jog, walk, or run courses. A good place to relax and enjoy the scene where no cities can offer. Enjoy the air, thr breeze, converse with the nice people who runs in the morning here. Have a great picnic but no camping of course.
  • Best Place especially for family gathering, you can picnic here and have quality time. Even bring kids or with your friends is vwry recommend. My tips, use comfortable shoes and clothes, bring water, sunglasses or hat and come in early morning. Enjoy the fresh air by walk and take a rest in somewhere. Better you bring own food also mat.
  • Very nice and historical site, great for families, too. Main paths are well kept, bringing a trolley is not a problem. Side paths may get a little tricky, though. Some directions in the park are not very accurate. This is not a problem, though, as getting lost should not be a bigger issue, and you will spend a couple of hours here, anyway, so sooner or later, you'll come across the places you're looking for. Nice treat: hang out at the garden Cafe and enjoy the view while relaxing after a long walk, or kick back with a picknick on one of the shady lawns. Historical pointers are given, too, at occasion. But some advanced reading would be advisable if you are looking for the intellectual feats here.
  • Spacious place for family recreation and kids education. They also have Zoology Museum inside this place. Many people bring their own carpet to have a picnic here. Best time to come is in the morning to enjoy the fresh air. You might bump into Mr. President in here too!
