Bandung tour is popular for its wide range of culinary treats, bargain clothing stores and cool highland air. A wide variety of shopping and eating places, from those in exuberant malls to simple street side stalls. Bandung is a 2.5 hour’s drive through the Cipularang toll road, or if one prefers the longer but more scenic route across Puncak (mountain pass), Lembang and the Bosscha Planet Observatory. Climb higher on the mountain to the volcanic crater of Tangkuban Perahu, the only ‘drive-up’ volcano on the island! Visit the nearby Ciater Hot Springs Resort for a swim in warm mineral water pools, or Lake Patenggang in the south, surrounded by tea plantations. Kawah Putih (White Crater), near the vegetable-producing town of Ciwidey, is about one hour drive south from Bandung.

Bandung is the capital of West Java. It is situated 768 meters above sea level and about 180 kilometers southeast of Jakarta. It is called the ‘Paris van Java’ because of its tree-lined boulevards and artistry of its people. The city gained international status through the first Asia-Africa Conferences in 1955, which brought together the leaders of 29 Asians and African Nations with the aim of promoting economic and cultural relations and taking a common stand against colonialism.
