The Gedung Sate is one of the landmarks in Bandung city. My friends and I were in that areas so decided to take a look. To my disappoint, it's now a goverment office building so we couldn't get in. However, we could walk around in the garden area which was pretty nice. It's built in by dutch and suprised to... More

The complex that contains the Gedung Sate is also home to the West Java Provincial Government. Being said that, the security of this premise is little bit tighter than a normal tourist attraction that you would normally see in Bandung. The top of the building, as shown on the picture, has an observatory deck that you can get a good... More

People say that you have visit this place when you are in Bandung. This building is an icon of Bandung city. On Sunday, near this buidling, there is a market here. Unfortunately I came when the market was about to close so I only took some pictures here. So don't forget to visit "Gedung Sate" if you are in Bandung!

I love come on Sunday so can see so many traditional handicrafts from west java sell with good price. Gedung sate is landmark of Bandung city and built by Dutch government during colonial... More

Sunday only Big Baazar/Market with a lot of set up booths which sells a lot of different items & food. There are a wide varieties of items sold and prices are quite cheap.

Gedung Sate is a must visit place if you are in Bandung. They said that you can't say that you've been to Bandung if you haven't visit this place. The building was already there since long time ago so if you like to visit historical landmark, this is the place.

Since it was Dutch collonial's building for Dutch Indies government long time ago, it was sooo amazing to see the architecture inside. I really love it. It's really big and I also love the office room. It's more beautiful than you see in White House's office room! Haha.

I was there for a working dinner, and the they took us to go up to the roof to see Bandung in the night. The scenery was awesome and they have standing binoculars. But I don't think they open the rooftop for public... More

I think this heritage building is one of the best angle to see the mount of Tangkuban Parahu. You could see in the rooftop. But, you should ask permission to the security man in 1st floor. FYI, this building is the place that the Governor of West Java works every workday. Don't miss your camera, capture many amazing pictures, such... More

I just see yhis building through my car window. Nothing special from this building, except the history. That's it. I won't recommended you to long visit. It's just enough to take a picture and then go again to another place, since Bandung is full of traffic jam.
