MAGIC OF THE MOUNTAINS

Bandung, capital of the province of West Java, has a relatively cool climate. Because of this, Dutch colonial planters made it their retreat from the hot plains and in its heyday the city was known as the “Paris of Java”. Today, it is known as the clothing capital of Indonesia. Visit nearby Cihampelas city, dubbed the Blue Jeans Centre, where you can shop until you drop at the numerous factory outlets.

Next stop is Lembang fruit market, a lively place where you can sample some of the huge variety of tropical fruit grown in this region. Enjoy lunch at a restaurant with great views of the surrounding area then continue to Mount Tangkuban Prahu, a dormant volcano whose summit resembles an upturned boat. Finally drive to nearby Ciater, a small town at the base of the mountain known for its revitalising hot springs.
