My Backpacker Journey in Bandung City Jawa Barat

Bandung (IndonesianKota Bandung) is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia, the country's third largest city by population, and second largest metropolitan area in Indonesia with a population of 2.4 million in 2010. Bandung has cooler temperatures year-round than most other Indonesian cities. The city lies on a river basin surrounded by volcanic mountains. This topography provides a good natural defense system, which was the primary reason for the Dutch East Indies government's plan to move the colony capital from Batavia to Bandung.


Bandung is one of the best choice if you traveling to Indonesia, has a good landscape especially for Photographer.
