The capital of West Java Province, Bandung is situated 180km south east of Jakarta. Surrounded by magnificent mountains and active volcanoes there are few places on earth quite like Bandung. Exciting and utterly unforgettable, Bandung might be Indonesia’s third largest city, however it is arguably its’ most attractive. This green region or “City of Flowers” - as locals know it - is home to protected forests, craters, plantations, waterfalls, hot springs and camping areas. A city where the past meets the future, Bandung’s rich colonial architecture is evident throughout the city. In fact, many of its vintage buildings now have a heritage listing. However, it is the city’s famous shopping and dining that really wins over the hearts of tourists. Bandung has an abundance of factory outlets selling well-known brands at cheap prices and more than 560 restaurants.
