Bandung, The City and People

Bandung sits at 700 meters (about 2300 ft) and so is noticeably cooler, by about 10 degrees, than the other cities we've visited on Java although the direct tropical sun seems just as strong. Thus on Sunday morning there were hundreds of bicyclists streaming down the street after participating in Car Free Sunday.

Or hotel had a good location; less than 10 minutes walk from the train station and near several vegetarian restaurants.

Not to mention that Bandung has a slew of outlet malls located on route between Art Deco highlights.

Always nice to have a spacious hotel room.

Kehidupan Tidak Pernah Berakhir Vegan Restaurant. This place was awesome! Rice + 4 veggies for 8000 rupiah - about 65 cents.
