One of a nice attraction in Bandung is Tangkuban Perahu , which is an active volcano in Lembang (about 40 mins to 1-hour drive from Bandung). There are a lot of outbound activities there and the forrest is conserved by law ... the temperature in Tangkuban Perahu can reach about 17C in the afternoon and sometimes it is fogging. But... More

Depart from the hotel at 8am. It's better to be there early to avoid traffic and the hot sun. Went on a weekday, 200k for entrance fee. The view is awesome and the wind is cold too. There will be vendors with their pushy tactics, just say no and they will walk away. After the trip, visit the Kampung Daun... More

Scenery was beautiful & cold. Just don't get conned. They jack-up prices more than 50% of what you can get on ground level. But do just buy something small from them & they will go away & make sure to bargain.

I didn't want to go after the price hike but since I booked my trip planning to see this, we went anyway. 300k for tourists and 30k for Indonesian! What a huge rip off. The volcano and crater itself is beautiful. The weather is awesome and the sulphur smell was not that strong when we went. What spoilt it was... More

It was excellent to be able to come down to the active crater. But there are too many people to really enjoy the trip.

After driving almost 3.5 hours from Jakarta, it was such a disappointment to find out foreigners will be charged 300k to enter, that's more than 10 times the fees for locals. Needless to say we decided not to enter as we were not prepared to pay 1.8 million for our family of 6.

Our jaws dropped in disbelief when our driver told us entrance fee per person is RP300k and we have to pay for him too! Certainly poor value considering no proper facilities were available and the area was not particularly well maintained. Even toilets (clean thou!!!) were chargeable at RP2k per person. After we drove up to the carpark which was... More

I didn't and would never expect to pay 300K rupiah per person (30K for locals) to enter this place on Saturday morning, looking at the fact that I just need to pay 500K to get a 12 hours car rental with driver which inclusive of petrol! And if you have visited any crater before, especially those in Indonesia, that just... More
