one day tour on Oct 2

Hello everyone, I am planning an one-day tour in Bandung on Oct 2. I wish to visit Kawah Putih(or , Asian-African Conference Museum and then head to Bogor in the evening. I wonder if it would be rushed for us. If I rent a car to do all these, what is the possible cost?

Could anyone give me a suggestion on hotel selection. I wish to stay on a four-star hotel in central city with no more than USD 80 per night.

Many thanks.

Fan G, hello

1/ what`s the starting point of your trip???? BDG or JKT?

2/ NOTE: Due to lots of scam in BDG forum originated from PM we start a close monitoring of such activity and ask members who were approached by illegal service providers ( car rental, guide, tours). This illegal practice will endanger your health, life, well being etc - AVOID at all costs. PLEASE to report to DEs - me or Stefzzz. Your help is greatly appreciated. The best and safest way to have a car+ driver in BDG for your needs - rent from your hotel. All other companies lost our trust and BANNED forever from the recommended list.

Do not believe ANY sugar-coated lie...........

3/ the average fare for local driver+ car ( 10-12 hours of work)= 450-550k IDR ( included: unlimited millage, fuel, toll fee). Lunch money for the driver ( about 20k IDR), parking fee, entrance fee to the attractions are on you as extra.

Hi, Schonefeld,

Thank you very much for your prompt reply. I should have made it clear of my starting point. I will arrive in Bandung from Bali on the evening of Oct 1.

Do you mean if I spend about 450-550k IDR, the driver will take me to Kawah Putih, the conference museum and take me to Bogor, provided that all activities are within 10-12 hours?

Thanks a lot!

Hey Fan G

1/ Asian African Conference Museum (Museum KAA)

Jl. Asia Afrika No. 65

Entrance Fee : FREE

Operating Hours :

Monday – Friday : 8 am – 3 pm

Lunch Break 12 am – 1 pm

Saturday 8 am – 12 am

With travel to Mt. Patuha it is hardly imaginable you`ll be back by museum closing time, anyway - you can try and if you find the CLOSED door - it only proves that i was right.

2/ I suggest to visit the volcano and go straight to Bogor. rent a car + driver from your hotel.

Yes, Schonefeld, I am also considering going stragihtly from Kawah Putih to Bogor. I may come visit the museum on 8am in the morning and then rent a car. However I wonder if the cost is affordable. My budget is USD 100-120 including the Bogor trip in the evening.

If that`s for rent a car+ driver only - more than enough ( BDG area + trip to Bogor). Of you include a hotel stay in it, i have doubts..........
