Having Fun with Baby wild animal
a bit quiet (pro and con), wet (sometimes)
The place is quite in border area of Bogor and Depok. Located in Parung-Gunung Sindur, only a shabby billboard/banner will guide visitor. And could only be seen if the visitor come from Parung. The area offered three things: cheap picnic for families, hot spring shower and limestone. We could hiking to the top of the limestone and enjoy the...more
These shops used to be called sisa export and are now often called asli-palsu (or real fakes) by Indonesians. In actuality they are factory outlets, which offer overruns and seconds on export garments at bargain prices. The foreign store and foreign currency price tag often is still on the item ... i.e., US$ 65 ... with the Rp price next to it ......more
Yeah... you Fish.... We fished when we were at that place we had lunch, Fishing Valley. We didn't have any fishing equipments with us, So we just went ahead and bought a simple fishing set there and the bait, which was like a paste. So we went fishing, and I got a palm sized carp and my kid got a 0,6 kg Catfish (Patin). That's quite big... he was...more
Cafe Dedaunan is located in the middle of Kebun Raya (Botanic Garden) Bogor. Walking arround Kebun Raya itself is a wonderful experience. Finding a nice cafe located in the middle of it makes everything perfect.Walking around the garden in the whole afternoon, having early dinner at dawn, watching sunset and going back to the entrance gate by the...more

Bogor is a very European city. It has some special places where it is nice to relax.One evening when walking we heard music...life singing , songs from the first halve of lastcentury. A sadé like voice. We were in the moodto sit down and have a drink. Next thing we found out was that it was a frenchpatisserie. Whatever that means over here...but if...more

From Kota Station (Old and Torn-Plat Form # 9) or Gambir Station Central Jakarta near MONAS - Track # 2 Much cleaner and well maintained facility) Executive Airconditioned Train runs regularly and stop at very few stations at cost of 12000 IDR These are usually less...more
So. Along Pajajaran Street, you see this Fashion Outlets, like 10 of em or more, lined up,
I haven't really been in all of em, just a few. It's just one of those places the local tourists go to. Usually people from Jakarta, like me, spending time in Bogor and driving around.
What to buy: Clothes, clothes and clothes.

You may occassionally find huge spiders here. This one was sitting in its web just outside the guest house were we spent the night. (Seems to be missing one leg, though ... )
Kids on courses selling used golf balls they retrieve from us duffers. Sometimes they even "find" our balls in the rough for sale back to us. Not good! This is a nuisance; however, some courses do not allow it or they have it organized so that it is not a problem.
Some courses are very crowded on Saturday mornings. You should be aware that it could take up 5.5 hrs to play 18 holes on those busy days.
Some courses are buggy on track courses; some are buggy on courses. People who cannot handle walking distances in the tropical heat and high humidity should use the buggy on courses.
Heat stroke is a real possibility, so drink lots of liquids out on the course, and don't forget your sunscreen.
Unique Suggestions: just stayed at Bogor or along Bogor to Puncak pass to beat the traffic and save time
Fun Alternatives: Get out from the the hotel as early as 5am if you want to play 36 hole in bogor .because at 6pm ,you can't see the ball anymore....
Its not Melrose Place in Beverly Hills, California. But It's "Macaroni Panggang House". It's the special Resto with special food. U should try Maccaroni Panggang in other word Roasted Macaronni [variant of Pastas]. You never went to Bogor when you didnt try this special cuisine .Maccaroni Panggang.The resto is very pleasant place.SHaddy with trees...more

Our driver stopped atthis restaurant so we could eat somethingand enjoy...more

The better way to Cipanas is from Jakarta.The distance from Jakarta to Bogor is 60 km and from Bogor to Cipanas is about 40 km. Generally you can drive to Cipanas directly from Jakarta via Highway, avoid Saturday, Sunday or National Holiday by the traffic will be heavily crowded ( there is also a beautiful President Palace at Cipanas). Please...more
my favorite is about food,many traditional food around bogor, so spicy & they are not usual food for international travellers, but you can try and put your comment on it there is a botanical garden since hundreds years ago, which is princess astrid from europe doing her honey moonmore
