The city with the most thunder

Bogor city in Indonesia is the most place of thunder in the world, with more than 320 days of thunder a year, however on more than 120 thundery days it just thunders without any rain, and sometimes no lightning; moreover local thunders easy come easy go.

In order to avoid lightning strike along with thunders, most local houses are very low, only only a few of houses have two  stories,  the houses with more than three stories are rare.... all roofs are very steep so that rainwater can be discharged quickly. Interestingly local people don't like to carry an umbrella with them, so they always get soaked.

Travel tips: it's the best in the morning to visit local scenic spots, because it usually thunders in the afternoon.
