The result shows that the natural conditions and colonial heritage still has a major contribution in creating Bogors sense of place. Activity as a commuter from Bogor to Jakarta is the main activity characteristics in this city. Nevertheless, at the weekend most people spend time in their own city. Most resident has a conception that Bogor is a city of tourism and resort. This study shows that Bogor urban identity as historic city only supported by a physical artifact of the empire and colonial periods alone.
