Bogor Palace, Bogor

4.0
#2 of 22 in Historic Sites in West Java
Reserve early to tour Bogor Palace, among the most important buildings in Indonesian history. One of six presidential palaces, the structure boasts a rich history, extensive art collection, and beautifully maintained gardens. To visit the building and grounds you must put in a request letter, as it is open to the public only once annually. If you don't manage to do so in advance, you can still admire the palace from the street or the adjoining botanical garden. Spotted deer roam the landscape freely, and you can observe them and feed them carrots from outside the fences.

    You can not even! From a distance pretty though but really not worth it. Very Bogor is disappointing. I would advise against this city. Much nicer things to see in Indonesia.

    The Palace seen from the outside (you cannot inspect it inside). In the same garden you can admire very much deer that live here freely.

    ... He is in the area of the Botanical Garden. Very nice building on a lake. Unfortunately, you can only up to the gate. Maybe the President "home" was, because out here in Bogor, it is far more comfortable than in the hot and plagued by continuous traffic jams Jakarta.

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.
