Aside from the main crater (Ratu Crater), I managed to visit the other crater, Upas Crater, which was amazing because we were alone (guided by the staff nearby) and literally went... read more

Aside from the main crater (Ratu Crater), I managed to visit the other crater, Upas Crater, which was amazing because we were alone (guided by the staff nearby) and literally went down near the crater. The view was breathtaking and the track was good and clean enough to go on. Some downsides on Tangkuban Perahu are the excessive approach by... More

The place was too crowded when my friends and I visited it but what spoiled our mood the most was the sellers who kept following us, forcing us to but their goods.

I visited this place years ago and is interesting environment but when we go there last week and we decided not to enter the place due to high entrance fee, per person. Not value for money. Weekend 300,000 and weekday 200,000

The access to this place is from a road between Lembang and Subang. We can drive the car up to the top of the volcano. It is wonderful to see the crater of the volcano from the top. It is recommended to walk around and take photos.

It's a truly awesome experience to see the volcano crater from the top. Take a walk around and enjoy the scenery. Sample fried tauhoo with chili padi, ginger tea with brown sugar. Buy some handcrafted souvenirs. Good value for these beautiful gifts.

While planning for this trip, I came across viewpoints from both sides of the continuum. I have read positive & negative reviews of this place. After our visit, I now can appreciate why. There are 2 craters that most visitors to Bandung would try to get to. One is Tangkuban Perahu and the other is Kawah Putih. The former is... More

They say, you're never in Bandung if you've never been to the Tangkuban Perahu, So, my mates and I made our way straight from the airport the moment we landed in BDO. Thank goodness we spent our days in Bandung on weekdays, if not traffic would be frustrating and 50% more time consuming. Being a typical tourist, we took many... More

Olala this place is magnificient. Just gorgeous and cooling. No words to describe these beautiful views... The only thing i dislike about those guys selling souvenirs, they pestered us and followed us until we left the place. My suggestion that they should have a table displaying their souvenirs items and visitor can choose from whom they want to buy and... More

It's a pity that such a beautiful place was ran by a group of scammers. The entrance fee was too high and there's no public transport available if you don't have your own vehicle. Not sure if I would visit this place again.

Is definitely not worth paying Rp200,000 for a foreigner to visit the Tengkuban Perahu. The volcano is completely dried up as explosive rock, thus there is nothing much to see. There are a lot of touts trying to get you to buy souvenirs. We were not really disturbed by them since such activities are usually commonly found in every tourist... More
