Just south of Jakarta lies the small city of Depok. Its main road running through it connects to Jakarta, so traffic during the rush hours can be quite congested. The Bogor train line provides a more convenient means of reaching Depok and has five stations.
Visitors to Depok choose this destination as a less crowded alternative to staying in Jakarta. Train rides to and from Jakarta take anywhere between 25 to 70 minutes, so commutes aren’t taxing on the itinerary. For time spent in Depok, there are a couple places that could be worth some time checking out. The historical area of Old Depok is certainly worth a visit. It offers old colonial-era homes and an old church. The church bell itself dates back to 1675. The University of Indonesia
is quite an attraction in itself. The campus and its lake draw locals and visitors alike for a day of leisurely relaxation. Another lake that gets a bit of attention is Babakan Lake
. A couple of days a week, traditional folk dances are performed here.
