Bandung is the capital of West Java in Indonesia. Located on elevated grounds, it is no wonder that the main attraction of Bandung would be the volcano crater.

Just do a search on the internet and you will know that Bandung is known for having many factory outlets. In my itinerary, I will be showing you apart from factory outlets, what else does Bandung has to offer. The best way to see Bandung is to hire a driver to show you around as driver fees are reasonable.

A little tip from me - Bandung is rather dirty so when you get back to your hotel after a day of exploring, please always remember to bathe before you start to lie on your bed :)

This restaurant is not an ordinary one as it is located on higher ground. You will be able to dine alfresco-style facing the city. The best part is, there is no need for air-con because by night, Bandung's temperature will drop and the breeze is cool.
Kawah Putih is a volcanic crater with its beautiful blue water coupled with a sulphur smell. It was a beautiful sight especially when there was a white mist in the back drop. But please take note not to stay too long there as the sulphur smell is really strong and it gets stronger if you walk closer to the crater lake.

Rancabali is an area of tea plantation. There is not much to see and do but after visiting Kawah Putih, you may ask your driver to do a quick stopover for picture taking.

Paskal Hypersquare is a very big food court. There are a lot of stalls to pick and choose from and plus, the prices are cheap. If you are looking to try many Indonesian dishes at cheap prices, this is the place to go. I would recommend visiting this place for dinner as there evening breeze will be cool.

This place needs to more introduction. Do set aside about 1.5 to 2 hours to explore this place. Please also be careful of people who approach you and insist that you hire them as a tour guide. There is NO NEED to hire a tour guide.. simply just ignore them and walk away.

If you have got time, I suggest doing a stop at this strawberry farm for a refreshing cup of strawberry juice. But I do not recommend picking your own strawberries from the farm as there wasn't many ripe strawberries that you can pick.
This is a floating market food court concept. You will need to pay a small entrance fee to get in, but in return you get a free drink. So not that bad a deal! There are several food options in there but most would be heading to the floating market to buy their food. The stalls are set up in boats and you will purchased the food directly from them. Please take note never to let your food unattended on the table because there are never-ending houseflies targeting your food.

This restaurant is located in the hills and you get to dine in your very own hut. Set is lush greenery, you will be able to hear streaming water running through the area and the sounds of insects. Definitely a very different experience. Food prices are reasonable and it serves Indonesian and Western cuisine.
