In former days, the city of Bandung was often referred to as "Paris of Java", mainly because of its wide tree-lined avenues, the many old colonial buildings and café's and the fact that it's the fashion & textile manufacturing hub of Indonesia. Bandung is also famous for its educational institutions from which rather well-known Indonesian architects and artists graduated.
Bandung is located a two-hour drive southeast of Jakarta and is reached by the Jakarta-Cikampek-Bandung toll road. It is home to five enchanting courses and offers golfers a choice from flat (open or tree-lined) parkland layouts to awesome mountain tracks. The latest addition to Bandung golf is the Dago Pakar Mountain View course that offers a bird's eye view on the entire city.
Located some 900 meters above sea level, Bandung is known for its cool temperatures. It truly is a favorite weekend hideaway for Jakarta people, hence over crowed hotels, shopping malls, streets, restaurants and other entertainment facilities during holidays.
The city's collection of buildings from the former Dutch colonial days is exemplary and nowhere else than in Bandung are these building maintained so well. They certainly add to the beauty of a city that is considered to be the most "European" in Indonesia.
A visit to the famous Savoy-Homann hotel is a must as it shows this Art Deco building in all its glory. North of the city we'll find the hot springs of Ciater and the Tanguban Perahu volcano, both worthy places to visit. Lovers of jeans and other textiles must pay a visit to Jalan Cihampelas, home to a fast collection of textile outlets that offer export quality products at bargain prices. Ask your hotel service desk for the latest city tour packages that are frequently updated.
