And on to Bogor, leaving the last of the Javan highlands behind, back to the sweaty cities for the final legs of my trip. I experienced the infamous traffic (as if Indonesia ever has traffic that is anything but) along the Puncak Pass, and it wasn't even a weekend, which was supposed to be when things really heat up.
Regarded somewhat as a distant suburb of Jakarta, Bogor is your typical rough-and-tumble Indonesian city. Aka Kota Hujan (Rain City), apparently with storms almost every day. It was of course no exception during my stay here, at the Pensione Firman.
Hi, thanks for visiting. I'm an ex-cop and ex-finance guy from Singapore, quit my job to travel. Decided to start in my own backyard here in Southeast Asia. Pleased to have you follow me on my adventure...... full info
Kebun RayaNot quite as sprawling as the highland version of Cibodas, but still sizeable, and set on relatively flat grounds rather than rolling valleys. Certainly worth several hours walk though, and surely the highlight of Bogor.
