Bandung is the capital city of West Java province (so not in East Java), located 180 kilometer southeast of Jakarta, on a highland plateau. It takes only 2 hours by car from Jakarta via Cipularang highway. Or you can also take a three-hours train ride with nice mountain scenery.
Bandung is surrounded by mountain range gives the city a cool climate throughout the year. In the past Bandung known as "Parijs van Java" because of the beauty of this city. This is my favorite place for weekend cos of the the cool weather, the green of tea plantations, delicious food and snacks, one of my favorite is Siomay and Batagor….
Bandung is well known as the city of fashion, where we can shopping in many factory outlets and boutique around the city such as Ciwalk, Cihampelas, and Dago. Don’t worry about the price, cheaper than Jakarta.
Parahyangan (priangan) is the another name for West Java province. The meaning of Parahyangan is "Land of gods".
Angklung is an Indonesian musical instrument consisting of two to four bamboo tubes suspended in a bamboo frame, bound with rattan cords.
This bamboo musical instrument that produces very beautiful sound is well known overseas.
Angklung Inscribed in 2010 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
