    MP , YOU THINK IT'S MELROSE PLACE?

    by vee01 Written Aug 30, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 and the building...i think it's an old house , Holland Architecture. The genuine of the ceiling is shown.

    Puncak col

    by belgianchocolate Updated Nov 27, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Seeing the puncak pass was just marvelous.
    Puncak means top. The puncak pass is on
    the scenic route from Bandung to Bogor and
    only 90 minutes away by car from Jakarta.
    (90 minutes if you are lucky I mean).

    It is colder because of the hieght and in Januari
    if feld really cold to us. Our driver stopped at
    this restaurant so we could eat something
    and enjoy the view. Real eye catchers on this
    hight are the giant ferns.
    (they are protected by C.I.T.E.S.) Most of the
    plants you see here are tea plantations.
    If you wish you can also visit the factory.

    Also very nice are the warungs where you
    can drink something or buy fresh fruits..

  • Railway tracks and rivers and canals.

    Get away from the traffic. Walk alongside one of Bogors canals or rivers or railway tracks. You will enter a world of bougainvillea, flame trees, red roofed shacks, washing lines, goats, fruit bats, boys flying kites, tiny mosques, patches of jungle, and, views of a distant blue volcano.

    Railway track.
