City of Rain

Reputed to experience upwards of 300 thunderstorms a year, the West Javan city of Bogor has truly earned its nickname as "City of Rain." Bad weather notwithstanding, the metropolis of more than one million people serves as a scientific, economic, and cultural hub. Only 60 km (37 mi) from Jakarta, Bogor has become somewhat ensnared by urban sprawl and tends to share the capital's air pollution and traffic problems. However, the city has its own rich heritage, dating back to the 5th century and acting as an important center during both Dutch and British colonial rule. History might be repeating itself: in 2015 Bogor Palace became the seat of the new Indonesian president. Remember that rain is never far away: bring waterproof clothes and do your Bogor sightseeing in the morning.

Where to stay in Bogor

Although it's a fairly big city with plenty of things to do, Bogor hasn't developed its tourist infrastructure at the same rate as other places in Indonesia. That makes it difficult to find budget accommodations, with prices in Bogor generally more expensive than across the rest of West Java. You can find mid-range options throughout the city, especially close to the botanical gardens and presidential palace. If you're looking to stay at a larger, more luxurious resort, check the countryside surrounding the city.
