Admire water lilies blooming on the surface of peaceful ponds. Marvel at the colours and shapes of hundreds of orchid species. Wander from garden to garden, learning from your guide about Indonesian flora and fauna.
Then, head for Puncak Pass. At over 1000 metres of altitude, it is much cooler than Jakarta, and a favourite getaway for city dwellers. You will see slopes covered with the light green foliage of tea bushes. Discover the secrets of masterful tea brewing, then enjoy an exquisite lunch of regional delicacies.
This is a great way to spend a day if you have a Jakarta layover. Get out of the city and roam the highlands and gardens, far from the noise and smoggy streets.
