Bali Tour 3, Kebun Raya Bedugul
At last! We finally had another Bali Tour after almost 1 year since our last one (^_^) If you curious about our previous tours, do check our 1st Bali Tour to Tanah Lot and 2nd Bali Tour to Uluwatu. So as the title suggest, this is our 3rd tour of Bali and this time we went to Kebun Raya Bedugul (KRB).
KRB is a botanical garden located in Bedugul. It’s not actually the real name, but some people just call it that way because it’s located in Bedugul. Its real name is Kebun Raya Eka Karya. Honestly, before we went there, I didn’t really know what to expect from a botanical garden. I’ve never been on one before. So, I wasn’t sure how fun this trip would be. We started the tour a bit late in the afternoon. I think we leaved the house around 1 O’clock. There’s also something different with this tour. If there’s just me n my wife in our previous tours, this time there are 5 of us! No, no, we’re not having triplets 😛 hehehe… It’s me, uly, lex, uly’s mom and uly’s brother.
Bedugul is about 2 hours of driving from our home. Quite far, but we did enjoy the trip. Driving through green areas is always a good refreshing for the eyes. Plus the weather was clear during the trip. We arrived there around 3 O’clock. Unfortunately, rain fall exactly on our arrival. It was just a light one, but we didn’t want to put Lex on any risk. So we drive around slowly hoping the rain would stop any minute, and thank God it does 🙂
A bit information about KRB, it’s a huge area full with many kind of trees and flowers. And when I said huge, I really mean HUGE! They cluster the plants based on their family. Don’t ask me about it, I’m not really proud with my results in biologic class 😀 We visited two of the clusters, the cactus and the orchid family. We were totally amazed with everything we saw in there, very very beautiful. I never thought I could be so delightful being around so many plants.
Anyway, there are just so many spots you can stop by and check inside that I don’t think one visit to KRB would be enough. And if I were to go back there again, I would go earlier, bring lunchboxes from home and have a wonderful picnic. Plus… a long pray a night before for a clear weather 😀 They also have tree games (or what they call Tree Top Adventure Park) where you can have lots of fun and challenging games with trees 😛 We didn’t try it out, though. Perhaps later when lex is ready for some adventures 😉
