Day trip from Jakarta to Bogor botanical gardens and Taman Safari Park
Another idea to spend a free day around Jakarta is a day tour to Bogor, the city known for hosting one of the largest botanical gardens in the world. Within a relatively short distance, you can find also Taman Safari Park, a large safari park that is home to many animals coming from different places of the world.
Bogor is located about 60 kilometers from Jakarta and hosts one of the world's largest botanical garden, called in Indonesian "Kebun Raya Bogor". Here you can find hundreds of different plant species, coming from all parts of the world.
