It’s a Garden… but Forestry

After we came to Singapore Botanical Garden, we agreed that we both love the beach, but we can’t forget the forest.

Setelah datang ke Botanical Garden Singapura, kami berdua sama-sama setuju bahwa kami suka dengan pantai tapi kami tidak bisa jauh-jauh dari hutan.

Willy and I noticed that Bali has a lot of areas to explore, not only beaches, waterfalls, lakes, and mountains, but also botanic garden. Of course, there are forests, since it’s Indonesia anyway, but let’s make our trip easier by visit Bali Botanic Garden.

Saya dan Willy sadar kalau di Bali ada banyak tempat yang bisa dijelajahi, tidak hanya pantai, air terjun, dan gunung, tapi juga kebun raya. Tentu saja hutan, tapi berhubung ini di Indonesia, jadi kita cari perjalanan yang gampang saja dengan mengunjungi Kebun Raya Bali.

Just like our usual habit, we came to a place without knowing nor searching for details of it. We just saw the pictures, tried to find it on the maps, then yeah, we came.

Seperti kebiasaan kami, kami datang ke suatu tempat tanpa mencari tahu terlebih dahulu. Kami cuma lihat gambarnya, cari di peta, kemudian datang.

We’d say that Bali Botanic Garden could cheer us immediately after we arrived there. We came at 4:50 P.M. near the closing time, so only a few people there, like 3-4 person. If you came at 8 A.M. – 03:00 P.M., especially on the weekend, well, enjoy the crowd.

Bisa dibilang, Kebun Raya Bali langsung membuat kami senang begitu datang di sana. Kami datang jam setengah limaan sore, sudah hampir mau tutup, jadi kami cuma lihat beberapa orang, kayak 3-4 orang saja. Kalau datang jam 8 pagi – 3 sore, apalagi akhir pekan, siap-siap rame.

We read on the map that there are other gardens like orchid, cactus, and begonia, but it was closed when we came at 5 P.M. Never mind, we were already happy to walk, took photos (without photobomb), and jumped to our heart content in this full-green area.

Kami melihat di peta kalau ada taman-taman yang lain kayak anggrek, kaktus, dan begonia tapi sudah keburu tutup pas kami datang di jam 5 sore. Tidak masalah. Kami sudah cukup senang dengan berjalan kaki, foto-foto (tanpa ada orang di belakang), dan melompat sepuasnya di atas rumput.

It said ‘Bali Tree Top’ but closed 😦

We sure will come back. On weekdays.

Kami pasti bakal balik lagi. Di hari biasa.
