Originally the Dutch summer capital of Indonesia, Bogor has since come into its own as a thriving and beautiful regional city. The Sempur Markets are filled with local produce and a great introduction to the region, while De Daunan is the perfect spot to have a cocktail and watch the sky burst. If you’re feeling a bit more active, check out the Citarik River– it’s incredible for white-water and clear-water rafting year-round.

Every 18 June, the Bogor Botanic Gardens mark their anniversary. Live music and amazing local food all round!

At the Bogor Dondang Festival in July, local produce is decorated and paraded through town. It’s a bit like Rio’s Carnival, only the vegies are wearing more clothes.

When To Go

April to October is the dry season and perfect for the likes of surfing and hiking

November to April is the wet season. Due to its sweeping hills, rich forests and endless skies, Bogor is at its best at this time.

Getting There And Around

If you’re looking to get from Jakarta to Bogor, try the regular train. It’s reliable and doesn’t have the fear factor inherent in some of the local airlines.

If you want a more leisurely stroll around town, horse-carts provide an ancient solution to your modern travel worries.

Taxis are notoriously unreliable in Bogor. If you order one, be sure to ring and check it is actually coming!
