If you're so consumed by the hectic Jakarta, staying in Bogor for a weekend getaway is a great idea. Visiting Bogor Palace is a must-do to include in your itinerary. Here you will find tranquility; fresh air, green grass, and of course the majestic yet humble-looking palace. Oh and don't forget to play with the spotted deers!

If you tired of living in busy city, this is the spot to get your nerve relaxed. Bring your own food and relax on green grass. Or you can grab some food in the restaurant
