Photo of the Day – Kebun Raya Eka Karya Bali

One of my favourite paces to spend a morning is located in the small village of Candikuning not far from Danau Bratan. The awesome Bali Botanical Gardens known as Kebun Raya Eka Karya Bali. It is easy to find and is only a short walk from the nearby Bukit Mungsu Markets. You really cannot miss the entrance as you will see a giant corn-on-the-cob statue marking the way.

The gardens have over 800 different species of trees from around the world. Also, there are over 400 species of Orchids to be found and many in full bloom. Walking through this fairytale square kilometre is amazing. If you want you can drive through the park on the well-paved roads but to truly enjoy the beauty of these fabulous gardens, I would suggest parking and strolling around.

The park is also a great place for birdwatchers as many species are found here. Although only a square kilometre in area I estimate you would need three days to explore this Botanist’s utopia.
