Nice to visit this place at morning or a few time before night. At the mid of daylight, temperature is hot. If you visit in this time, prepare some fresh water. There are many drink sellers, buy for manufacturing drink only if you don't trust quality of seller's water.

i sit at the field in front of gedung sate with family, taking pictures, viewing people walk around the place, feel the fresh air and looking at the busy road with vehicles.... suitable to spend for about 30 minutes before you go to another place to visit

This is the main icon of Bandung. for traveler, its not the place to visit or enjoy, but as an icon. The activities happens in the front of this big governmental building. Across the street, you'll find lots of activities, usually in the weekends morning and nights.

It was across the busy street and a lot of cars pass by so you need your fast photography skills to capture the Gedung Sate if you like it without cars or people passing by. hahaha.
