If you’re a nature lover, love the beautiful green outdoors and looking for a fun adventure check out Bandung, Indonesia.
Ever thought of visiting Indonesia? Most people normally visit Bali or think of Bali when thinking about Indonesia, but I want to introduce to you a city that has some of the most beautiful scenic views and clean cool air, Bandung. Bandung is the third largest city in Indonesia and full of nature’s finest; volcano, tea plantations, lakes and more. This city has some of the most beautiful views with a relaxing vibe that will make you think twice about going back home.
Where to stay
Dago Highland Resort
2.6 km from Jalan Raya Golf and 6 km from Bandung Zoo, Dago Highland Resort is the place to be. Wake up to a beautiful morning mist high up in the mountains to a stunning infinity pool and enjoy nature’s finest with spectacular mountain and cliff views. They also offer great outdoor adventures and spa treatments. Dago Highland Resort is also right next to Dago Pakar Forest and cave and the Maribaya Waterfall. You can also enjoy hiking and biking trails in Dago forest. I’m seriously obsessing over their pool and that view! Try Traveloka.com for some good deals on flight tickets and hotel bookings.
If there is one thing I always love seeing, it’s tea plantation. There is something so calming and relaxing about visiting or even just driving through tea plantation. Many countries that have tea plantations will even give you a tour of their factories, where you can see how tea is made and the whole process and later buy and try some tea.
If you’ve ever wanted to visit a Volcano this is the place to do it! Tangkuban Perahu is a stratovolcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung. There are tours that let you venture off-the-beaten-track volcano and hot springs! You get to hang off the cliff and look right inside the Domas Crater and even take a dip in the Ciater hot springs if you’d like. Think of it as one huge nature created jacuzzi.
After visiting Tangkuban Perahu, check out Kawah Putih. Kawah Putih is the crater’s lake and the perfect place to grab your cameras and start shooting because this is a sight to be seen. Crystal clear waters with an active volcano in the background, how perfect is that.
Patenggang Lake is a stunning lake that looks over the beautiful tea plantations of Bandung in the southern part of the city. Take a relaxing hike or just enjoy the stunning view in Ciwidey village.
