So my girlfriend and I decided to go to the so called Botanic Garden today. Well, that was a big mistake! First of all we had trouble finding the place bevares of the lack of signs (in retrospect quite obvious why there weren't any). When we finally found it we paid 50.000 Rp each and entered the path leasing to the garden. But there was no real garden. The place was a mess, abandoned. Rubbish. Hell, even the garden at my hotel is way more pretty.
It was clear that this place was closed down. It was like a really ugly jungle. Broken signs, broken trails, dead flowers, furniture in the middle of everything.
We quickly left and tried to find "the owner" so we could get our money back. But he was long gone. The 10-15 other people "working" there ignored us the best they could. Apparantly none of them spoke English.
We left feeling cheated and hustled so our advice to everyone is simple: do NOT go there.
