Bandung is a favorite destination among backpackers. A bustling metropolis and the capital city of West Java, Indonesia, Bandung offers plenty of attractions amid massive tea plantations and majestic volcanic mountains.

One of the best places to visit in Bandung is Lembang, a beautiful, tranquil place blessed with pleasant weather. Lembang is where you will find Dusun Bambu & The Bird’s Nest Cottages, an iconic site where you can do various activities while enjoying picturesque views. Djuanda Forest Park is another can’t-miss attraction. This conservation area and the botanical park cover 590 hectares and feature countless sights and activities. It is considered a “Jungle in a City,” playing host to some 2500 plant species.

Bandung is a three-hour journey from Jakarta and one of the best side trips to level up your adventure. You may also fly directly to the city via Husein Sastranegara Airport, which serves flights from Singapore and Malaysia.

Where to Stay in Bandung

Click below & search recommended Bandung hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.

Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
