3 nights in Bandung

We are planning to spend 2 weeks in Java. After 1 night in Jakarta we would like to spend 3 nights in Bandung. We still have some doubts in our plan regarding Bandung.

Me and my girlfriend would like to focus on beautiful landscapes and we would like to see Kawah Putih and Tangkuban Perahu. Should we stay with this option or do you recommend something else?

We don't like to move every day so we think about accommodation in some budget hotel in Bandung for 3 nights and then organizing daily trips. Could you provide us with some list of tour operators which we can trust and which can pick up us from hotel and organize trips to those places? Or maybe we should choose some other option?

I would appreciate your tips.

Hi pawel_hbg,

Your idea of staying in one hotel as a base and do daily activities is sensible and is always the most recommended solution.

As for travel agent recommendation, you might contact Panghegar Tour www.panghegartour.com or Exotic Java Trails www.exoticjavatrails.com I have met the representatives from these companies during a travel fair and they have tour package as well as hotels combined.

Otherwise, if you'd like to do DIY trip, you may also consider to book hotel separately and then rent a car with driver which can dubbed as a guide. This might come cheaper but majority of the driver does not speak fluent English and you might get miscommunication.

1 day to tangkuban perahu, 1 day to kawah putih. the last day, can go to garut or tasikmalaya as i supposed you go to yogyakarta after bandung.

so 2 night in bandung and 1 night in tasikmalaya is good for you.

Thank you very much for all replies. We will be 25-28.06 so hopefully no public holidays. And you guessed- we will go further also by train to Yogyakarta. So we will do like you recommend. We will book budget hotel for 3 nights in Bandung and try to explore those the most interesting places from there. Budget because we will use hotel only for sleeping so there is no sense to spend more money.

If you have some orther tips you are welcome. It is very kind of you that you spend some time to help other people. I really appreciate that. All the best!

There are few budget hotels which you can consider. If you are putting cleanliness over anything else, I recommend to stick to chain budget hotels such as favehotel, amaris, or ibis to name a few. Location might not be as strategic as deluxe hotel, but somehow it is still close to most tourist amenities such as convenient stores, F&B outlets, and shops

hi pawel,

1/ <<t hotel in Bandung for 3 nights and then organizing daily trips. >>.

The right idea, ... for accommodation option , please let us knwo your budget/ room/ night???

2/ no organized tours in BDG, all visitors must do it in their own. The best solution; contact your hotel concierge desk: any hotel will gladly organize it all for you - itinerary and transport.

NOTE: avoid like a plague anyone who try to approach you via this forum or PM with offerings of guide/ driver/ tour service - ALL SCAM. If you care for your life and wallet - avoid and block them. We have a recent report that scammers approach visitors PRETENDING to be official TA representatives and local experts - i REPEAT - all scam. Keep your head clear and stay on the safer side of the road.

3/ <<We will be 25-28.06 >>

Good dates, it`s not a weekend...........

I`m glad that i gave the timely warning, and you are TOO kind, the best strategy is to click REPORT SPAM. Two spam report is enough to close the account of the spammer and make the world of TA a better place................
