Recent Reviews in Bogor

Sitting south of Jakarta on Java Island, Bogor is snuggled into the dramatic volcanic backdrop of Mount Salak. The 6th largest city of Jabodetabek, the metropolitan region of Jakarta, the city has a population of 1,030,720 residents making it one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Its bustling streets are a melting pot of three-wheeled carts (becak), dokar (horse-drawn carts), mini buses and somewhat normal cars belching out smoke. The economic, scientific, cultural and tourist hub, Bogor gets plenty of rain. Make sure you take an umbrella when venturing out or when you are trotting off to your coworking venue, as it drizzles even during the dry season. Bogor is affectionately referred to as "the Rain City" due to its frequent showery weather, think tropical rainforest climate even though you aren't sitting under a canopy of fronds.

In the Dutch colonial era, the city was known as "Buitenzorg" (meaning "without worries") and it was the summer residence of the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies. It has an incredible presidential palace and botanical garden that is one of the largest and oldest in the world. Its economy is based in food industries, automotive chemicals and lots of agricultural products. Indonesia has a flourishing digital economy happening that is being touted to become the world's 4th largest economy by 2050, if it continues at the same rate. It has a growing tech-savvy middle class that is young and in touch with the latest trends; 88 million people online with 79 million of them playing on social media. Its tech startup scene is just learning how to "walk" and there have already been some startups that have become major successes, despite the fact that they have had to overcome infrastructure challenges and the lack of a real ecosystem. The inventive individuals of Indonesia aren't just hitting the safe niche markets, but are going for a range of different sectors.

The startup scene in Indonesia is getting the backing of the international bank, Goldman Sachs, who believe that the next hotbed for tech companies will be in Indonesia due to its' large population and untapped market potential. No wonder coworking spaces are spreading like wildfire to keep up with the demand of creative Indonesian minds.
