This was actually so last year, literally last year. I actually had some problems when I decided to have my solo escape. My mind was a mess and I felt terrible so I need my solitude. I'm originally random and impulsive, fyi. I went to Bogor, Kebun Raya Bogor to be exact.
Kebun Raya Bogor is a botanical garden filled with any kind of plants, trees, etc. which is operated by Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia (LIPI) or in english: Indonesian Institute of Sciences. The area is really huge and divided by some categories. For more information you can read it on the website or even Wikipedia. I'll just tell you briefly here, hehe.
***I went there by commuter line from Pasar Minggu station (the one near my house) to Bogor Station. It will take around one hour to touch down and costs only IDR 5.000. There's no seat booking system in commuter line so if you're lucky you will sit, and if not...you will stand up for the whole trip :p
I used angkot number 03 to get to Kebun Raya Bogor and bought the ticket for IDR 14.000. It's my first time visiting Kebun Raya Bogor and I was amazed by this huge gate and the greenery scene!
|Such a huge crab! Can't wait to see the real one ;))|
My escape wouldn't be complete without FOOD! You can find a lot of super-yummy food across the Kebun Raya Bogor. My favorite food ever is toge (bean sprouts), hahaha. So there's Indonesian cuisine called Toge Goreng (Fried Toge) but it's not actually fried, it's boiled. It's combination of toge, tauco sauce, noodle, tofu, and oncom (fermented tempeh). Weird? But the taste is really delicious!! You must try it when you visit Indonesia or Bogor ;)
