It's easy to come to Bandung by train from any big cities in Java island. On the way, you can enjoy the beautiful view of mountains, hills, rivers, and fertile valleys of West Java.

From Jakarta (Gambir station, next to National Monument), it takes approximately 3 hours to reach Bandung, or 2.5 hours by Argo Gede train. Trains:
- Argo Gede, priority all-executive train, 2 times a day (subject to change).
- Parahyangan, business and executive train, almost every hour (subject to change).
