Update of Bandung Trip 12-15 Feb 2009

We started the day with full of energy (so excited) but ended almost battery flat coz our flight at 9.50am was delayed to 1.00 noon. We reached Bandung at 2.00pm (1 hour time difference, Malaysia time is 3pm).

Number of people going : 4

Accom : 3 nites at Rumah Tubagus (2 rooms 1 bath)

Total cost : Rp1,050,000

Daihatsu MPV with Driver (9am to 9pm)

Rental for Day 1 to Day 4 days : Rp1,750,000

We rented the car plus driver all the 4 days we are there. He picks us up at airport upon arrival. Send us to the airport when we return to Malaysia. Thanks God, we never experience the ‘angkot’ and we don’t wish too after looking at it (our personal opinion only)

I exchanged the currency 1 week before the trip. Rate is RM324 = Rp1,000,000. But the rate dropped lower later with the lowest at RM311 = Rp1,000,000

Day 1

Arrive at airport. Driver pick up. Lunch. Check-in Rumah Tubagus. Clean and spacious rooms with 1 bath and kitchen for the price we paid. Shop at Jalan Dago FOs.

Day 2

Go to Tangkupan Parahu. Road on the way up to TP are bumpy. Many souvenirs stores. Bargain and you will get the stuff at very cheap prices. Suppose to continue the journey to Sari Ater but raining so return to Bandung town to shop at FOs. Rumah Mode, Setiabudhi and Sukajadi area.

Day 3

Shop at Jalan Riau, Sumatra, Acheh

Day 4

Shop at Jln Dago. Bought brownies from Amanda and Kartika Sari. Reach Bandung airport at 3pm for our flight at 5pm. Reach Malaysia as per scheduled.

We find that FOs at Jln Dago are most suitable for our taste and budget. Riau area like Heritage, Cascade are expensive. Secret FO at Riau okay.

All of us manage to grab clothings – tops and bottoms ranging from RM13-RM40 with acceptable to good quality. In KL we can find the kind of quality but at a more expensive price. We didn’t find many designer clothing like Esprit etc. Eventho they have it doesn’t suits our taste.

Traffic in Bandung is really worst than KL and the way they drive. Anyway is a nice place to shop and we have a pleasant trip.....
