I will be travelling to Bandung, Indonesia in February 2008 with my young daughter. Can somebody give me some advise on things to do in Bandung, things to be careful in Bandung, how to get to Bandung from Airport to the city and what is the fare like etc. Thank you.
How long are you going to stay there?
- Tangkuban Prahu is definitely one place that you can visit, its about 30 km from Bandung. Is a huge volcano crated, legend tells of a god challenge to build a huge boat on single night.
- Pangandaran, if Java has any answer to the beach of Bali, Pangandaran is definitely it.
Taxi in Bandung is not to good, most of the taxi don't want to use meter. Blue Bird taxi is highly recommend for Bandung transport to getting arround.
maybe you can try go to kawah putih,is almost same with tangkuban perahu but more cooler... and if you want to buy shirt you can go to rumah mode at setia budi, or jalan dago and jalan irian have many factory outlet to shopping.
for night maybee you can choose cafe2 at hill side, they have amaging view to bandung city.
for transport maybee u can rent a city car with driver, i think is cheaper than taxi.
ask the hotel for it.
hope this can help.
