Never go to Bogor if you not visit the Bogor Palace that actually is the president palace, so not open for public. The place is close to the Botanical Garden. Always busy in holiday or weekend but nice view of the Dutch past.

Buy some carrots from the street sellers and feed the deers with your family from the fences. There are tons of deers there too.

Istana Bogor is a botanical garden with a governmental palace. The palace is not accessible for tourists, but you can feed the deer through the fences. The botanical garden is beautiful and full of Indonesian plant species, including the largest flower in the world.

This palace was one of the most lovable Presidential Palace. Due its location and close proximity with Jakarta, this Palace often welcome government's officials and it guests. The Palace open annually in June, when Bogor having a birthday celebrations. When it not held any event, you also may visit the palace with prior arrangement.

Never go to Bogor if you not visit the Bogor Palace. Bogor palace actually a president palace, so not open for public. The place in one area with Botanical Garden. And one thing, avoid public holiday or weekend if you want to visit this place.

One of Dutch colonialism heritage you can find in Bogor. Surrounded with Bogor Botanical Garden, this palace has a stunning garden view with wild deers all around. You can find collections of chandeliers, paintings and other antiques from all over the world that are well kept from Soekarno (Indonesia's 1st President) era.

My understanding is that you need to make an appointment ahead of time and there must be at least 8 people in the group (e.g. weekend easier?) - rather difficult for solo travelers to manage (especially those who aren't in Jakarta for very long) along with the fact that there are not many western tourists who visit Jakarta. Is this... More
