Went there with my kid and husband. It was the first time for kid and me but third times for my husband. Once arrived, my husband told me to buy face mask because he knows I can't stand with unpleasant smell. The place covered with mercury smells which comes out from the volcano. But the view and surrounding are great!... More

to see a volcano. More accurately its a small lake in a crater with some steam around, don't expect any lava. A lot of vehicles there despite it being a Monday morning and it being expensive to enter as an "attraction". You can stop at various points around the rim but if travelling privately its best to go to the... More

Nice to see, just wasn't that spectacular to me. The salesman dampen my journey. First when you're using those guides to walk down to another spot with the hotspring and massage, they will tell you that it would cost only Rp300,000. When I asked them how long is the walking journey, they said it's all up to us, can be... More

Very nice.. should go. The only thing distrubing is the salesman or women they some how blocking your ways of enjoying the panoramic view of the active volcano site(at time can be annoying). Anyhow if you enjoy buying stuff make sure you bargain real hard start you bid with 75% off from the offered price. Enterance fee to the site... More

This place should not be a missed if you are in Bandung. At first, we hesitate to visit here after reading all the bad comments about many sellers would pester or even force you to buy their stuff. To my surprise, only about 2 or 3 asked when we walked past and we just replied "No thank you" and they... More

For most visitors to Bandung, this is definitely a must to go to place... A bit far from centre of town but worth the trip.

liked: very nice place. Disliked: journey away from the city of Bandung. Requires own vehicle to reach the destination.

We visited early morning on a weekday - the best time to go there as the crowds were tolerable in size at first and started increasing before noon (weekends are a killer, we're told). The sight of the smoking volcano on one side and the cloud-covered peak of another mountain on the other makes this site definitely worth your time.... More

Tangkuban Parahu should be visited during the weekdays to avoid the local tourist surge and the traffic that comes along with it. Upon reaching the volcano's crater, you will face multitudes of vendors, cars, motorcycles, horses and of course, tourists. Vendors will swarm at you but a polite "no, thank you" should work if you're not interested in buying their... More

GO in the morning so you can spend more time. Bring a mask for those who has sensitive nose. Smell can be strong. Bring jacket too.
