the exhibitions are really fantastic. They show so many features of clothing through the ages. The different materials and Batak's from different regions are explained. Very good for education and just the beauty of the wedding clothes. Excellent historic information about different regions

It is the icon of Bandung and a must-place to go in Bandung. Why it called Gedung Sate (Satay Building)? Because the top of the building looks like satay, a kind of traditional food.

This building is a MUST visit for tourists in Bandung. This iconic former Dutch Governor's HQ is featured in many T-Shirts and other souvenirs of the city. You must make arrangement to climb the stairs to the top of the building. In fact, with a little payment, expats were served tea and traditional delicacies while observing glorious sunsets.

The road leading to this place is pretty spacious. However, there isn't really much thing to visit other than for photo taking, for memory's sake
