Avoid airport hassle and take your family on a local garden getaway!  A day (or two!) in a garden is not only fun but also healthy and educational for the whole family. Located within a two hour drive from Jakarta, the 265-hectare Taman Buah Mekarsari (Mekarsari Fruit Garden) offers activities galore, a campground, waterpark, and of course a garden with a wide range of fruits and plants!

Whether it’s a la carte or a planned program, kids have their pick of planting trees, picking crops, and participating in sporty activities like kayaking, canoeing, dragon boat riding and biking around the garden. Wee ones stay entertained in the Kids Fun Valley with mini go karting, bumper cars, and a train.

Plan to stay over the weekend? Taman Buah Mekarsari offers an assortment of accommodations: tree-house cottage, modern cabin house, or family camp!  Fun!
