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.
