Our Bandung hotels provide a perfect base to explore the city and beautiful mountains - affectionately called the ‘guardian angles’ – surrounding Bandung. A short drive from Bandung lies the volcano of Tangkuban Perahu. It has three craters that you can walk through: Kawah Ratu, ‘Queen Crater’; Kawah Domas, ‘Domas Crater, and Kawah Upas, ‘Upas Crater’. The panoramic views of the countryside and the emitting sulphur fumes are awe-inspiring. Make sure you take a guide if you hike down to the crater floor where the colours of the lake will amaze you with its turquoise/white coloured water and yellow stained land. You can also walk through the forests on the slopes of the volcano. Close to the volcano is the hot sulphur spring of Maribaya where you can soak and swim in the warm waters, whilst enjoying the view of the 25 meter waterfall set against the mountain cliff.
Enjoy the liveliness of the streets of Dago when you stay in your Bandung hotel. Dago is a vibrant location with restaurants, cafes, plazas, factory outlet stores, the business centre and many different styles of architecture. The upper streets of Dago lead through winding green hills where you can enjoy the cafes nestled in the hills, visit galleries, and take in stunning views of the city. Throughout Bandung there are fantastic galleries to visit: the Barli Museum created by the late local Bandung artist Barli Sasmitawinata; the Hidayat Gallery; the Selasar Seni Sunaryo Gallery and the Pohaci Studio.
Bandung is renowned for fantastic food - a fusion of the wide varieties of Indonesian styles - so make sure you sample and enjoy the local cuisine when your stay in your Bandung resort.Image Attribution: frank-wouters under Creative Commons
