The Marine-Htel and the Htel Boudriot are both large and fairly good.
Carts for the ascent to Tosari on the following morning, have to be ordered the evening before. With these carts, the price of which is / 6, we go to Pasrepan where others are always to be found, to take us to Poespo, for the same price.
A walk along the quay to the Boom is highly to be recommended ; here a nice view is to be obtained across the river and along the coastland: fishermen's campongs, standing midway in water, the swampy sea-coast with many "tambak's (fish-ponds), and the roadstead in the distance.
A curiosity in the neighbourhood of Pasoeroean, is Banjoe Biroe, or the blue water, a natural bathing-place, with a bathing establishment. It is to be reached by cart, along the high road for f 2.50, in about an hour. A so-called holy stone attracts many pilgrims to this spot, where they offer their flowers and little "pajong's" amidst the burning of incense. A few Hindoo remains ornament the deep-blue lake, which is surrounded by a grove of gigantic trees that are swarming with half-tame monkeys. In the water, many large fish are disporting themselves.
