A trip to West Java to see the Bogor Botanic Gardens may be on the agenda for people using accommodation in Kuta (http://www.asiarooms.com/indonesia/kuta.html) later this year.
Situated in the centre of Bogor city, these magnificent gardens cover over 80 hectares and contain a huge number of plant species and exotic trees.
Each year, the centre marks its foundation with an anniversary celebration consisting of exhibitions, seminars, workshops and presentations.
The event takes place on May 18th, meaning that people staying Kuta or other Balinese resorts have plenty of time to arrange an excursion to Bogor, which is about 60 kilometres south of Jakarta.
Founded by Dutch botanist Casper Georg Carl Reinwardt in 1817, the Bogor attraction is said to contain some of the finest gardens in Indonesia.
It adjoins the site of the Istana Bogor, one the nation's six presidential palaces.
As well as the various species of palms, orchids and other flowers, the gardens contain a monument to Lady Olivia Marianne Raffles, the wife of British statesman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles.
Known as "the father of Singapore", Raffles led a military expedition against the Dutch and French colonial forces in Java in the early 19th century.
