Dago Giri area at Bandung, West Java mostly popular among tourists as a shopping destination. Unlike its neighbor, Lembang, there are not many tourist destinations here other than shopping. However, Dago Dream Park tries to fill this gap. An 11-hectare pine forest is transformed into a nature-based theme park, with numerous attractions and rides.
Like its name, the park was meant as a dream destination. This is where people can take a break from their daily routine. And go into a world of wonder and imagination. Dago Dream Park boasts 999 photo spots. They are categorized into 4 zones, each offering a different concept.
These photo spots are what made the park viral since its inception in 2016. Aside from photo spots, there are 27 attractions and rides scattered around the area. And it divides into 4 categories based on their extremity level.
The dream zone area caters more to kids with its playground and animal farm. Meanwhile, selfie extremes, park zones, and the bridge target visitors of all ages.
Take Unbelievable Pictures
Dago Dream Park’s 999 photo spots are an opportunity to get creative with one’s photography skills. A right-angle would result in an impressive picture that looks unbelievable. The Aladin carpet, for example, is where visitors sit on a floating carpet above the pine trees.
Skybike is another feat. Take an acrobatic picture where visitors ride a bike on a thin rope, meters above the ground. Among the most popular is the up house. Taking inspiration from the 2009 movie Up, this photo spot features a house floating mid-air, carried by a bunch of balloons.
Snap a picture here and get a glimpse of Mr. Fredericksen and Russell’s adventure. The green forest and the cloudy Bandung sky act as a perfect backdrop. “Night” is when the photo spots get even more interesting. Furnish with sparkly lights contrast with the darkness behind. Visitors’ adventure looks more otherworldly in photos when the night comes.
The photo spot ‘ birds nest’ has a romantic vibe with its colorful LEDs. The leaves on the photo spot ‘Sakura Tree’ light up purple at night, making it way more magical than it is during the day.
Anti Gravity House
The anti-gravity house is practically a traditional Javanese Joglo house at Dago Dream Park. It’s a beautiful wooden house, only there’s an amusing peculiarity. The house is upside down complete with a set of furniture that also defies gravity.
The upside-down house is fun to explore. This is where tourists can get more creative with the pictures. Try all sorts of different poses – imagination is only the limit.
Although it’s captivating to explore. The vast and hilly terrain of Dago Dream Park could be a nightmare for one’s feet. Especially visitors coming with children and senior age. Luckily the park has wara-wiri Bus. Hop on to this brightly decorated vehicle. The bus will escort visitors on a dreamy trip through the tall trees of Dago Dream Park.
Another interesting way to venture into the forest here is with a sky bridge called Tarzan cross. A wooden path connects several pine trees high above the ground. Gear up with a safety helmet and safety ropes. And walk carefully along with the narrow Tarzan cross. This attraction is not for someone who’s afraid of height.
