2. Amazing Landscape of Ciwidey
Not only does Bandung become popular through various attractions in Lembang, but also through the amazing landscape in Ciwidey area. That is why; Ciwidey is my next recommendation for the 4 things to do in Bandung.
One of the destinations worth to explore in Ciwidey is Kawah Putih. It is a lake made from the eruption of Patuha Mountain. The uniqueness of this crater is the color of the water, which always change to adjust the sulfur content in the lake water. You will definitely be amazed by the natural green landscape surrounds this crater. Moreover, Kawah Putih is also one of the recommended places for anyone who wants to take a pre-wedding photo.
From KawahPutih, you can continue your trip to explore Situ Patenggang. Here, you may explore the tea plantation, go fishing, or spend your time in the hot water pool at Cimanggu and Ciwalini.
3. Shopping, Shopping, And Shopping!
It is not a secret anymore if people in Bandung have a good fashion taste. Bandung is even known as the youth fashion center. This characteristic is the same as that of Paris that is also known as the center of fashion development in the world. Due to this iconic fashion attraction, Bandung is known as Paris Van Java. So, yeah you’re right, my third recommendation of the 4 things to do in Bandung is to go shopping in this metropolitan city. The best places to shop for the quality stuff are at the factory outlets in Cihampelas and Cibaduyut. You may even enjoy the cheaper price compared to other factory outlets in other cities especially if you if you want to buy jeans. Cihampelas is the place where you can find quality jeans at affordable prices. No wonder if this area is also known as “Central of Jeans”. But, if you want to buy shoes and bags, you can come to Cibaduyut. In Cibaduyut the price of shoes will be cheaper because this place is known as the shoemaking factory.
