My partner is Nepali and most of the way through your list I was going “yep, he makes me eat this” but it looks to me like he’s avoided showing me the deserts!! they look amazing! We are hopefully going to Nepal next November (2019) so I am going to show him this and say “hey, make me try the bright orange desert” haha

Haha – oh great, well I’m glad I got the list pretty accurate! You’ll love Nepal! and definitely have him take you on a dessert tour :)

I have been to Bandung for a week exploring neighboring parts but you showed me a different Bandung here! Didn’t know you can do offroading there. I did that in Jogja.

Yes, floating market is familiar one. :) I wrote about a different Bandung. I found it cheap for cloth shopping also.

I’m sure I will enjoy every minute if I finally made up my mind to visit Indonesia because of your tips. thanks

I live in Indonesia and Bandung is very close to my heart (I have many relatives and loved ones there), and I ALWAYS love visiting it! Your photos are so divine, you captured the beauty of the place very beautifully. <3

Hi Sher! You have such a wonderful blog here. Just a quick correction on number 4 that it should be LEMBANG instead of LembLang.
Lots of love from Indonesia!

Hi Vega! Ah thanks so much for noticing the error, i’ll fix it ?❤️

[…] Bandung is a popular weekend getaway for local Jakartans, as it’s located in a cool, leafy mountain region with gorgeous natural scenery and abundant shopping. What else is there to do? Go off roading on an hour long, mud slicking jeep adventure! I talked about my experience doing this in an earlier post h6re. […]

Hi! Great photos and recommendations! Bandung is my hometown, and I think you should revise a bit from “Sudanese” to “Sundanese”. Thanks for your interest and review on Bandung!

Hi, we intend to travel with 3 kids (12, 10 & 8), kindly advise what is the best way to move around in Bandung. possible to take Uber / Grab from point to point?

SherNovember 28, 2018 - 9:54 pm

Hi Janet – I took Grab + Uber in Bali, but for the rest of Indonesia we hired a driver to take us around.

MimiDecember 5, 2018 - 5:44 am

Hej Sher. We are gonna visit Bandung this weekend and wanna go to Kawah Putih in the South and afterwards some stations around Lembang in the North. Is it better so stay in Bandung overnight or what would you recommend? And like Janet asked, how much did you pay for a driver and where can I get one? is there no cheaper option? Thanks a lot.

SherDecember 5, 2018 - 6:34 am

Hi Mimi – We stayed a couple nights in Bandung and liked it! It depends on your itinerary and what you want to do :) I’m not sure how much a driver will cost you, it depends on many things like the number of people in your group, how many days and the distance you’re wanting them to go.

DanielJanuary 8, 2019 - 11:55 am

Hi sher you miss other spot that U should visit when U go to Bandung. There is Tangkuban perahu and kawah putih.
U can googling it.

nellyJanuary 13, 2019 - 11:34 pm

Hi! I would loveee to try that avocado smoothie at Jalan Riau, which outlet would that be at? Secret Factory or Heritage Factory?

SitiAugust 2, 2019 - 10:40 pm

@Janet & Mimi, or anyone else interested.. For transportation, you can easily find Grab/Uber (Uber is slightly rare though) and Go-Jek (an Indonesian base online transportation) in Bandung.. and in any other city/place in Indonesia actually..

You can also rent a car (with/without driver) daily which is cheaper and doesn’t charge based on distances or how many peoples you have with you..
