trip to Bandung 11-14 December

Hi, would like to know how we could maximize our time spent in Bandung. Places that we wish to visit are Taman Safari Park, Tangkuban Perahu, Kawah Putih, Ciater Hot Spring and anything else?? we would be stayi ng at Discovery Paramita, so I guess shopping at pasar bawah, cibaduyut and chihampelas would not be a problem??

you can go to safari at 13th.

for 12nd, you must choose between tangkuban perahu and kawah putih. path to kawah putih is flooded several days ago. so plan to tangkuban perahu is safer plan.

<<Just came back from New Zealand and would like to compare with the craters in Bandung >>

If you`ve just been to Rotorua, volcanoes near BDG are mere toys, and you`ll just waste time and money trying to compare these to those.

If Safari is a must you have to travel from JKT, not BDG, only on weekday and start early. From BDG the road is tedious, of bad quality and long, it easily can take 5 hours/ one way through all local villages.

GENERAL note: trying to squeeze everything in one visit is a typical planning mistake that a wise travels must avoid in order to enjoy his trip and for the sake of family he`s traveling with.

Predicting weather is a monkey business, it`s god`s prerogative, not humans`...............

Zuraida62,

You may want to consider taking the flight to Jakarta Soekarno Hatta. Arrive in the morning and straight to Taman Safari, Bogor. From this place then you take your transport to Bandung and stay in Hotel for the rest of your trip. By arranging this, you may be able to go Taman Safari, Tangkuban Perahu/ Maribaya/ Hot Spring and Kawah Putih on 13th. On 14th you can be relax by shopping etc. You will then take latest flight from Bandung on 14th.

Ch,

Bandung Boy live in KL
