Top things to do in Bandung, Indonesia

June 2, 2016
Bandung is the capital of Indonesia’s West Java province, and is a large city set amid volcanoes and tea plantations. If you want a holiday packed full of beautiful landscapes and fun things to do – this is the kind of place where you’ll always have something to do.
It’s a lively town with young inhabitants and a cool and youthful vibe – think of it kind of like a university town. Of course, the weather is hot, humid and tropical – but that won’t stop you having any fun! Here are some of the top things to do there:

1) Feed the deer (and camp!) at Ranca Upas, Ciwidey

If you’ve ever seen deer in the wild, you’ll know they are the most beautiful and graceful animals. You can camp out (if you want to maximise your chance of spotting them) or you can head along just for the day. Perfect for animal lovers and photography enthusiasts.

2) A Miniature Zoo on a Mall Rooftop: Bandung’s Paris Van Java

High above this shopping mall, on the rooftop is a tony zoo full of cuddly friends! If you need a break from the shopping, or just fancy breaking the day up with something different – this is perfect.

3) Pump adrenaline at The Lodge Earthbound Adventure Park

If you love being daring and being outdoors, this adventure park is IDEAL. It’s great for kids and adults – so it’s the perfect activity for families. Our favourite pick? The paint-balling of course!

4) Soak in some views at Lawang Wangi Café & Art Space

This beautiful cafe is nestled high in the mountains, and offers some of the most incredible views. It’s truly beautifully built too – and is modern and sophisticated. If you love checking out buildings and photographing incredible views, you’ll love this place.

5) Take your Tastebuds on a Journey: Floating Market, Lembang

If you loved the floating markets in Bangkok, you’re going to love these ones in Bandung too. They’re less busy than the Thai markets and less over-run with tourists, so you’ll feel like you’ve discovered a real hidden gem.

6) The Mystical lake above the Clouds: Kawah Putih

 If you want to feel the beauty and mystery of this part of the world, and see somewhere absolutely stunning – then you need to go here. Don’t forget your camera-  because it is so beautiful here you won’t want to put it away.

7) Stay in a beautiful hotel

There are loads of beautiful hotels in the area, with many offering stunning views of the surrounding vistas and landscapes. Look out for infinity swimming pools, sweeping views and big windows – to make the most of the landscape and the stunning scenery.

8) Go strawberry picking in the hills of Lembang and Ciwidey

Want a laid back afternoon? Strawberry picking in the sunshine is PERFECTION.

9) Cruise around the City on the Bandros

This quirky fun vehicle is a super fun way to see the city, and it’s memorable too! Much better than getting a taxi and much more fun than a regular bus! It kind of resembles the famous red double-deckers in London, but with a fun asian twist!
