Is it a good time to visit Bandung during the Puasa month?

Hi,

I would like to know whether it's worth going to Bandung during the Puasa month. Heard that the roadside food stalls do not operate during this time. My main concern is food and shopping. Thank you.

Hello Grace,

Well, if you love roadside food, then I guess it would not work for you. However there are restaurants and so on which have great food. Even at the Paskal Food Market, you would get a fair selection of food available.

You can read about my Banfung Food blog for more info and have a great trip there.

Regards,

David

Hi,

It really won't make any difference to your trip.

Shops are open as normal as are most restaurants.

Hi grace,

Roadside food stalls will still operate but in the evening when the locals "buka puasa" together. As for restaurants, fast food and small coffee shops etc, they operate as per normal. Traveling to Bandung during the puasa month will be nice since most of the hotels will not be full, so you will have plenty of accommodation options.
