Bogor is a city in West Java, Indonesia.

Understand

Some 60 km south of Jakarta, Bogor is the "bo" of the massive Jabotabek conurbation. Located 290 meters after sea level, Bogor is noticeably cooler than the torrid lowlands. The town was the capital of Indonesia during the brief British occupation, and under the name Buitenzorg was also the summer capital of the Dutch in the hot dry season.

Get in

By train

Eksekutif-class trains depart Jakarta's Kota station, with a stop in Gambir, roughly hourly. Ekonomi-class trains depart Jakarta's Kota station every 20 minutes or so, but can be crowded beyond belief and do not stop in Gambir.

Get around
