    Botanical Garden and President Palace

    by meiyergani Written Mar 31, 2008

    Favorite thing: The better way to Cipanas is from Jakarta.The distance from Jakarta to Bogor is 60 km and from Bogor to Cipanas is about 40 km. Generally you can drive to Cipanas directly from Jakarta via Highway, avoid Saturday, Sunday or National Holiday by the traffic will be heavily crowded ( there is also a beautiful President Palace at Cipanas).
    Please Don't miss to visit Bogor Botanical Garden (the home of +/- 14,000 plants species) and Bogor President Palace (built by Thomass Stamford Raffless in 18 Century)you should recognize that there are so many factory outlet(dress , shoes, t shirts, bags etc) at Bogor down town not far from Bogor Botanical Garden. Have a nice travel and enjoy your stay in Bogor

    The deer.

    by belgianchocolate Written Nov 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Presidential Summer Palace,
    Istana Bogor, is located on the northwest side
    of the Botanical Gardens. We saw it from the
    street and from the botanical gardens behind
    the tree with the giant bats.

    Round the palace you can still find about 300
    white-spotted deer. How did they end up here?
    During the Dutch colonial period they used to
    serve as food for the dutch rulers.
    These days I think they just have to look good.

    We could not resist feeding them from within
    the botanical garden. They are quit gentle animals.

    Chinese New year....

    by belgianchocolate Updated Nov 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing:
    When we left the botanical garden we were
    attracted by noise. A lot of noise. We went a
    little closer and before we knew it we were
    dragged in. From ou former journey we knew
    that chinese temples are very inviting and
    not offended by visitors. Au contrary.

    Since it never hurts to ask any God for
    whatever wish we bought ourselves some
    incense sticks and things to offer. And we
    imitated the others , but still did it all wrong.
    Well , a very friendly man guided us around ,
    explained us why this and why that and how
    to do it right.

    And suddenly he dissapeared. We hadn't even
    had the chance to thank him. We had a
    fantastic time. Especially me...I had Frederik
    doing all the work and I took pictures. :-)

    I wonder if his wishes came true?
    I bet they did.
