"Just 50km south east of Jakarta, Bogor is a golf lover’s paradise. Located in the picturesque Puncak mountains region, Bogor offers golfers a choice of 10 championship courses including the acclaimed Bogor Lakeside. Aptly coined ""Buitenzorg"" (meaning a town “without worries”) during the Dutch colonial era, when you tee off in Indonesia’s green wonderland you certainly wont have a care in the world. Bogor is also famous for its extraordinary botanical gardens. The Bogor Botanical Gardens borders the Dutch Governor General’s Palace Grounds, covering an area of 87 hectares and features thousands of species of plant life from all over the world. In total there are over 15,000 different types of trees and plants, with 400 varieties of palms alone. Don’t miss the orchid houses, which contain over 3,000 types of orchids."
