Bandung Tourist Traps

  • Tangkuban Perahu

    When going to Tangkuban Perahu by rental car, ask to pay the entrance fee yourself. Don't let the driver do this for u as this gives him a chance to overcharge u. And don't forget to ask for the ticket. Bandung is a lovely place to visit but it's those dishonest behaviour that could spoil your trip. (It spoilt mine!)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Surrounded by mountains, Bandung has cool weather arround 17-28 degrees Celcius. At some points, for example on the top of the mountains, it can reach 10-15 degrees. It has beautiful highland landscapes with mountains and hills everywhere, including the active volcano of Mount Tangkuban Parahu in the north side of Bandung.

    These conditions are some of the reasons why many people (especially Jakarta people) are coming to Bandung to spend their weekend and holiday in Bandung.
