Botanica + Co Restaurant & Bar is quite possibly the most gorgeous restaurant in Kuala Lumpur; you’d have to step in to see for yourselves. Pictures just do not do justice to the splendour of the greenhouse-themed interior.
But for what it’s worth, Botanica + Co Restaurant & Bar in Bangsar South is a photogenic spot that is a dream for all botanical lovers. Every corner is a photo spot; every inch of the restaurant is filled with lush greenery.
The food’s really good too, in case you are wondering if it is just another gimmicky place that plays up on the aesthetics and neglects the food standards. Here’s everything we love about Botanica + Co Restaurant & Bar.
There are a great host of things to see, experience and do in Bali from raving till the cows come home in Kuta or cafe-hopping in Seminyak, but perhaps one of the more popular draws among tourists these days is the adrenaline pumping, Bali Swing.
Located in Ubud, Bali, the Bali Swing is fairly new playground that boasts a number of giant swings—some going up to as high as 78 metres above ground—that not only makes for one heck of a heart-pumping joyride, but gives visitors a spectacular view of the forest and coursing river directly below it. But fret not if you’re not a fan of heights because there are also giant overhanging pods modelled after bird nests that you can sit and admire the view in just the same.
For the thrill seekers or those who simply want to relish in the playground’s tropical vibes, Bali Swing is definitely something you need to include in your itinerary for your next Bali getaway.
