Hi,

2) Beware of PICKPOCKETs in Bandung, especially at the weekend, when people are going to Bandung from Jakarta on holiday! I saw many signs (in Indonesian) out on the street and in the shops that urged you to be careful of them!

Hati2 ya

Sudah_Kenyang_Bali,

I agree - keeping your eyes open/ staying alert and focused in any travel is vital rule not only for BDG, but also for the rest of the world.

Schonefeld,

You*re absolutely right.

However, I*ve never seen so many signs like these as in Bandung, to be honest, so there must be more PICKPOKETs in Bandung like in Jakarta or Surabaya, I guess. To tell the truth, I almost got my bag snatched by two men coming from behind by motorbike close to Alun2 in Bandung last year.

Awas Pencuri (Copet)!
