Mohd Razziq M, hi

1/ <<2-5 March>> is a a good thing to arrive on Sunday. Smart choice of dates.

2/ <<Appointed Driver : Angga Travel>>

No idea about who these people are...............The price for 4 days minivan rent is OK. I do hope you did not pay anything in advance.

3/ The Jayakarta Bandung Suite Hotel & Spa. Oh, i`m concerned about your choice, the property is old, run down etc...........

4/ On Monday: no way to return to BDG city by noon after Mt. Patuha visit. If you show up some time at 3 pm, it will be the best approximation. So the day plan is Kawah putih + some shopping, everything in between is not doable.

5/ On Tuesday : all doable if you minimize your shopping appetites and efforts....LOL... Of cpurse you mena the you intent to visit T. Perahu, not Mt. Patuha onece again.

<<08.00am : Depart to Mt. Tangkuban. Tangkuban Perahu – extra Rp50k to Driver.

09.30am : Reach Kawah Putih. Estimate 1.5 hours traveling time>>

6/ On Wednesday: all plans are fine.

Hi Schonefeld,

Thanks for your feedback.

Does it means that Kawah Putih - Jalan Braga - Sang Angklung Udjo is not doable for Day 2?

Typo on day 3 - It should read Mt. Tangkuban.

Plan to switch Ciater Hot Spring to Floating Market Lembang. Is it recommended for Mt. Tangkuban - Floating Market Lembang - Kampung Daun?

Appreciate ppreciate your comments & feedback :)

<<Does it means that Kawah Putih - Jalan Braga - Sang Angklung Udjo is not doable for Day 2? >>

1/ YES< not realistic at all. As i said above - your optimistic return to BDG from Mt. Patuha is around 3 pm, and A.S. Udjo has only one performance daily.

2/ <<Kampung Daun>>

Kampung Daun is a typical touristy trap, you can easily skip it.

Still not realistic is it? Hmm..

Any recommendations for other alternatives arrangements on the said date? Something classical & musical would be nice.

This trip also serves as my 2nd anniversary honeymoon and hopefully can arrange something nice for my wife :)

first, "Appointed Driver : ***** ******", but you must ask here ? it is ok if you want to clarify proposed itinerary. but if you want to build i new one, better consult your driver.

10.00am : Kawah Putih...

10.30am : Situ Patengan...

12.00pm : Tour Jalan Braga...

this schedule is not realistic. kawah putih entrance fee is 43k per person. visiting saung angklung after is possible is you do not go to situ patengang and (maybe) dinner. going to saung angklung also have risk of traffic jam.

04.20pm : Airport Pick Up. Separate driver pick up En. Megat & En. Anwar and go to Toko 3. Later to join the others (group) at Cihampelas

interesting. you are scheduled to visit toko 3 at 2 march. then the other 2 will going again to toko 3. it is better to re-schedule going to toko 3 together. or, the 2 person join you immediately at cihampelas.
