Bandung is the capital city of West Java Province. Bandung is a great place to visit any time of the year as it’s not only renowned for its picturesque open vista, but the town also offers many attractions well worth a visit. Surrounded by green fertile mountains, Bandung today is Indonesia’s center for learning and creativity. Today Bandung is one of Indonesia’s most prestigious university towns.
Well known for its friendly climate, Bandung soon grew into a town for wealthy planters who owned the miles and miles of tea, coffee and cinchona plantations, fruit orchards and vegetable gardens in the cool and fertile hills of West Java. Now Bandung became the center for textile mills producing much of Indonesia’s textiles for fashion wear, linen and upholstery. This city offers trendy fashion wear at reasonable prices at its myriad factory outlets, a wide range of delicious local and international cuisines, and a distinct colonial European-style atmosphere combined with captivating traditional arts.
