Yoo, dreamers! Here is another late post of one day trip to Puncak a few months ago. I planned to blog about this last week but because of my works and bad time management, I ended up neglecting my blog again. Let's start, shall we? (This will be a long post ;p)
We departed before sunrise to avoid traffic, fyi Puncak is one of the most popular destination for holiday or long weekend in Jakarta, so the traffic is too much to handle. Fortunately, it's not that bad when we went there on Idul Fitri. We were confused because it's not what we expected to be, but I thought it's because most of them already went there a day before.
We stopped here to take photos and I could already feel the cool breeze. It's not as cold as it used to be, but it's not hot either. Anyway, there's actually a 'tradition' to take photos on tea farm when you go to Puncak but we skipped it. I already took a lot when I was a kid, lol.
We continued our trip to this Puncak Pass Resort, which was a popular resort back then. I don't really know about how popular it is now, but based on the condition when I went there, it's just...sad. I remember I went there a lot, I've stayed there too, and always wanted to swim in the pool but the water was just too cold. When I went there, there was no water in the pool anymore and the floor cracked.
Overall, I think it's still a nice place to go or stay. The view was so good and it's fun to take a walk while enjoying the scenery. I hope they fix the pool soon so I can swim there next time.
|There's also a restaurant with nice view there ;)|
Taman Bunga Nusantara
We decided to go to Taman Bunga Nusantara, although I already went to Puncak so many times, this was my first time visiting Taman Bunga Nusantara. Different from the weather at Puncak Pass before, it's so hot here. I suggest you to bring hat or umbrella and apply suncreen (I didn't.)
The garden tram dropped us near the children play area and we continued by walking. I won't say much so you can enjoy these photos ;)
These are some random flower shots:
|Found this Larva looking plant x)|
It's obviously a garden full of roses and it smelled so nice. I love the roses, they're so beautiful they look fake. I especially love white roses ;)
Green House (Rumah Kaca)
To enter the green house we need to pay IDR 2.000. There were a lot of flowers too and I managed to snap these cute flowers.
This is a Japanese style garden with typical Japanese plants, decorations, gazebo, pool. Maybe you can tell from the photos, it's so hot here! I was drenched in sweat when I took photos there, haha.
|Dream came true: taking photo with hydrangea, lol|
After the Japanese garden, we took another stroll to the entrance (because we took garden tram before) and I took bunch of photos.
Beside the extremely hot weather, I totally enjoyed my visit there. Saw these flowers made me so happy and also felt refreshed, hehe. I hope you enjoy this post (or I can say photo spam)! I've never write a post this long before and it took me hours to finish, lol. I actually feel sick but there are still a lot of things to do so yeah, じゃあね!
