The volcano itself was okay. You can smell the sulphur, see the drab in the crater and some steam coming up here and there. A small street with some vendors and that's... More

Getting there would be easy, since a smooth access and asphalt road. The ticket fee was very cheap. The parking space for the tour or car driver were spacious, during the normal and low season. Many tour guides and street hawker would besiege you the first time you step down from the vehicle, but just say no politely, they would... More

Great attraction to visit. Crater is magnificent. Able to get a real open and closeup view. More could have been done to enhance the entire experience. Such as explanation on the view. Massive number of guides and locals selling anything, which cld be annoying. Foreigners are approached every minute! Avoid them all!! When purchasing anything from stores, ask for at... More

Upon arrival was told by our driver not to buy the souvenirs as they are expensive. If the seller is persistent just need to tell them tidak (which is no) and they will go away. The view... More

Very nice view on the journey. Bad experience came when we arrive at the Tangkuban Perahu location. When we just came out from the Taxi, we are... More
