As in malaysia, we have no chance to see an active valcano, so if you are visiting indonesia, don't miss the chance to experience a day tour to Bandung for the volcano. Nice experience with amazing view.

Is nice to have a walk around the area. One can walk right up into the woods. Easy trek. The weather is cool and nice.

I was very disappointed. Place filled with people, very dirty, no order in traffic which mingles with people - no one was hit only by miracle. And the smell ... It is advisable not to stay more than 30 m in this place and bring scarf to protect mouth and nose from the thin ashes and sulphuric odour.

Tangkuban Perahu is located in Lembang area 30 minutes by car from Bandung, is a volcanic crater. The area is a bit commercialized with many peddlers trying to sell their products, however the crater is amazing and has a distinctive shape that looks like a capsized boat. The area is called Parahyangan (home of the spirits) by the Sundanese, with... More

Entrance Rp75k/pax. Tour guide Rp600k. (very expensive!) Irritating souvenir vendors. No great view, nothing special about this place. Same visiting experience, it was free at Bali. My advice, if you have visited similar places before else where, do not take the local tour guide. Not worth it at all.

The volcano is beatiful. As shared by other traveller, there are many businessman there. Ya, at times they are pushy. However, just ignore them. Other than taking many photos there, we bought some peanuts. Overall i would say, this place is a must come place just that u need to bare with those *businessman*

The volcano crater is pretty breathtaking for someone like me who has never seen one It is quite a huge area but not very elderly friendly or disabled friendly. Be aware also of touts and men who will follow you around. If you don't want them, tell them firmly but nicely.
