Architecture Tips (5)

See the old part of Bandung

Bandung is an important city in Indonesian history. In the old days important things happen there. Now you can still see the old city with the old buildings from the Dutch colonial time. Some of them are Jalan Asia Afrika where the Asia-Africa Conference took place, and Jalan Braga that has a romantic atmosphere where there is an old cafe that I imagine long ago was the hangout area - the old cafe is still open. You can have a meal or just have a scoop of old-fashioned ice cream. It's good.

Architecture

Bandung is a town full of odd buildings with lots of interesting architectural details. This building for instance has a pink bay window. A pity we had to rush out after dark and couldn't spend more time here!

Museum Pos

Ir. J. Gerber, a Dutch architect from Delft University in the Netherlands, was commissioned to design the building, and he chose an Italian Renaissance architectural style. A 706 square meter plot of land was set aside for the property. Construction was finished on 27th July 1920

Pelabuhan Ratu

Pelabuhan Ratu can be described as the coolest weekend destination in West Java. Leave Jakarta on Friday night or at dawn on Saturday, through breathtaking mountain views, and reach Pelabuhan Ratu in three hours. The area is legendary in Indonesia as being the home of Ratu Kidul, Queen of the South Seas, who has a room on the 13th floor of a hotel dedicated to her spirit. Wear green in the ocean and the beautiful goddess will see your demise by dayýs end.

At the moment Pelabuhan Ratu has the perfect combination of sleepy village, stunning beaches and quality restaurants, bars and hotels set far enough away from each other to avoid a ýtouristyý feel. The place have been popular since 60s, when former president Soekarno had his holiday home there, so there are some examples of very odd architecture in the area, including a Stalinist block of hotel that reputedly serves great Bratwurst. The horseshoe shape of the bayýs coastline provides private, romantic coves for couples and excellent swells for surfers I think. At night, hundreds of fishermenýs boat lamps compete with the star-studded sky above and bonfires on beaches in the distance. Get the view from Bayu Amrta hotel, which has incredible cliff views and excellent food.
