Welcome to Bogor

Things have changed a little since then, and today the long arm of Jakarta reaches the whole way to Bogor, meaning this satellite city experiences the overspill of the capital’s perennial traffic and air-quality problems. Despite the relentless pull of 'development', the world-class botanical gardens that sit right in the heart of the city would still put a smile on the face of any old colonialists and more than justify a day trip from Jakarta. The city is also a handy base for a number of interesting attractions in the nearby green and lush countryside.

Remember to pack an umbrella!
