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. Bogor is in West Java. Use our Indonesia visit planner to arrange your visit to Bogor and other destinations in Indonesia.
