Typical tourist spot, feels that I was losing out not to go since I am already in Bandung, but also knew its probably not worth to go. I went anyway Pros You get to see a volcano crater Cons Lots of local people selling stuff made from "rocks in the crater", which obviously is not true. They follow you around,... More

I have been to Tangkuban twice now. The first experience was nice and breathtaking. Back in 2013 the price was Rp 75000/person but the last time I visited here (Jan 2015), the ticket fare was hiked to Rp 200000(weekdays) and Rp 300000(weekends). The sellers at Tangkuban had no choice but to increase the price of food and souvenirs. Please be... More

The view of the crater was superb. It may be a bit cold up there so carry a light cardigan / shawl with you.

The Tangkuban Perahu volcano is very interesting. As you look into the crater you can smell the sulfurous fumes wafting up from the bottom. It is not beautiful unless you are into volcanic geology but it is amazing to see the earth exposed. The trip there is very interesting, with lots of beautiful views, and many tea plantations that are... More

Family of 5, 1st trip to Bandung. This is our first attraction and the most expensive place we spent. Entrance fee IDR200,000 for foreigners, too bad our driver didn't want to say we are locals as we can pass for one so at least can save the entrance fee. We also had to pay IDR25,000 for the vehicle to drive... More

Entrance fee Rp300k per foreigner. Many souvenier shops. DO NOT need a guide. They may pester & tell license guide is needed. Ignore them. View was spectacular. Bring a light jacket as its windy. There is also Kawah Domas. Accessible from Tangkuban Perahu. Walk down abt 1.5km. Dangerous tho. Either that drive abit down & u can see the other... More

A strong, heady and healthy sulphurous smell greets one as soon as the car enters the protected estate of this volcano. Not unpleasant though and at the altitude, very bracing. The car drives right to the rim of the crater and getting off one looks down into the bubbling caldera which geysers sulphurous smoke constantly. A footpath leads down to... More

If you want to visit TP prepare yourself to dig deep into your pocket. The entrance fee is set to a steep 200,000 IDR per person (foreigners) on weekdays and even higher on weekends (300,000 IDR). However, this is just one out of many fees you will have to pay during your visit of TP. For the ride to the... More
