Well, if you never saw a volcano crater it might be a must see. If it is not your first volcano then it is nothing special. Admission was 255000 Rented car with driver... read more

Ratu Crater is the Main Crater and located about 20km north of the City of Bandung. A beautiful place where you can take pictures of nature.

First of all, the ticket price is outrageous, and they multiply it by 5 for foreigners. So make sure you bring some money in your pocket. And also, be careful if you buy something (other than ready-to-eat food) there as they can't be trusted. I bought a pack of strawberries only to realize that half of the box were filled... More

We didn't mind being charged almost 10 times more than the locals. But at 200,000 IDR (weekdays) per person excluding the charge for the car, we were expecting more than a tri-fold pamphlet and a view of the crater. How about using that extra money to erect more signs with information about the crater / volcano around the attraction? Or... More

Visiting Bandung brought us to the idea to visit Tangkuban Perahu. We went there by Ubertaxi which was quite nice and relaxing. Before we went there I found prices to visit TP from around 50.000 Rp. When we arrived at the main road of Volcano we were stopped at the entrance. One of the employees asked us what to visit... More

This mountain volcanoes is certainly worth visiting at least once. I have been twice, both times on a week day which meant fewer crowds. Both times using my KITAS which allowed me local price without much problem. They tried to trick us the first time but we were informed and refused to pay more than local. They finally obliged, however,... More

Foreigners pay 10x the price of locals, nice way to rip-off money. Not worth it, even with champagne on the volcano. Indeed a turist trap.

I came here together with my family about a year ago. The only thing that I really didn't like were the people around you, will keep trying to sell you something. My tip for this is... go with a local tour guide they'll either help you to negotiate or tell them that you are not interested. But this side is... More
