De Voyage Bogor

De Voyage Bogor is the latest trending holiday spot in Bogor since 2018. In a short time since its launch, it became viral, both on and offline. So, we, from ExploreSunda.com, were curious and eager to explore it!

What is De Voyage Bogor?

De Voyage's tagline states it is the place for holidays, selfies, and foodies, which is very self-explanatory. It is a place for hanging out with family and friends, taking tons of pictures, and having some meals in the cafe whenever you are exhausted. They claim to have more than one hundred and fifty selfie spots here, although I'm not convinced since the garden is not that big.

De Voyage Bogor is a popular tourist destination thanks to its beautiful European-themed garden. The garden is decorated with numerous miniatures of famous European landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the iconic red phone booth from London, the leaning Tower of Pisa, and the famous Manneken Pis statue from Belgium. You will enjoy viewing these miniatures and taking photos in this picturesque setting.

Upon entering the garden, you will be greeted by a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower, situated at the front and center of the garden. This is the favorite spot for taking pictures, and the staff there are always happy to assist you in taking the perfect shot. After that, you can take a leisurely stroll through the well-maintained garden and take as many pictures as you like. Enhance your experience by renting a traditional European costume from the costume rental shop, which offers a wide selection. The most popular choice for ladies is the Dutch dress, while the British royal guard outfit is a favorite among the gents.

The colorful houses surrounding De Voyage Bogor are just for show; they serve as photo props and cover the wall bordering the garden. However, the houses in the middle of the garden are real houses and used as shops. Some shops sell food and drinks, while others offer costume rentals, face painting, and crafting activities for children. The Coffeetable and Bonjour are just two of several cafes and food stalls in De Voyage. Their menus include comfort foods, such as hotdogs, burgers, fries, and coffee. If you're lucky, you can snag a seat with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Alternatively, you can dine at Deresto, a restaurant at the exit of De Voyage, or at Rumah Air, a restaurant located several meters from the garden.

De Voyage Bogor offers more than just photo opportunities. You can engage in various activities. A favorite one is renting a canoe from the canal bank and paddling along the canal. You will be surprised that the green and murky water never discourages visitors from enjoying this activity. Another popular activity is archery, where you can wear a Robin Hood cap and shoot ten arrows for Rp. 30,000. Or visit the House of Games, where the Brotherhood and Magic of Kettles games are. Although the House of Games may appear eerie, it is not a horror house. The Brotherhood involves navigating through obstacles to reach the exit door, while the Magic of Kettles is a labyrinth. Each game costs Rp. 30,000.

Overall, De Voyage Bogor is a cozy spot for hanging out with family and friends, provided the weather is not too hot or rainy. With so many angles and spots for capturing beautiful pictures, I'm sure photographers will love it here.

Unfortunately, not all is well here. I'm disappointed to say that there were a couple of things that I didn't like about my experience at De Voyage Bogor. Firstly, visitors were not allowed to bring any drinks, including children's water bottles. I can understand not being able to bring food or branded drinks, but a water bottle? I've never been to any entertainment center where a water bottle was banned from entry.

Secondly, the audio inside the garden was not enjoyable. The instrumental music played was often the same song on repeat. It became irritating when this music was frequently interrupted by loud announcements about the garden's rules. I don't think it's necessary to keep repeating the rules; it definitely lessens the joy of enjoying the garden.

Anyway, the concept of De Voyage is similar to several other parks and gardens in Sunda. They all offer beautiful landscapes, costume rentals, souvenir shops, and various food and drink options. The most popular ones are Farm House Lembang, which boasts of its European-style architecture; Floating Market Lembang, which offers visitors the chance to wear Japanese costumes; and the Great Asia Afrika, which provides more options for costumes and backdrops from eight countries.

Directions to De Voyage Bogor

De Voyage is located deep inside Bogor Nirwana Residence, near Aston Bogor Hotel & Resort. No public transportation is available here, so the simplest way to go is by driving or hailing a ride-sharing service (Grab or Gojek). Plus, it is easier to go to De Voyage by following the road signs to Aston Hotel first until you see the sign for De Voyage. Or use Google Maps to guide you; the GPS coordinates are 6°38'16.0"S 106°47'42.0" E (-6.6377778,106.7949982).
