Small hotel with only three stories and much smaller rooms than the SANTIKA in Jakarta. The best part of the hotel, however is its location right in the heart of the city. Staff is helpful and speaks English. Rooms have coffee makers and free wifi. Breakfast buffet needs help

Tangkuban perahu Left the hotel at ard 730. Took around 1.5 hrs to get to tangkuban perahu. The entrance fee on weekdays is 200,000 and 300,000 on weekends and public holidays for foreigners. So we paid 300,000. The view was pretty amazing but be careful of the locals who are selling stuff. Don't show any interest of you don't intend to buy any or they'll end up following you around. Other than that, it's quite safe. Wanted to stop by the floating market on the ...

... minute we got there, the girls went in search of power points to charge their phones and were quite happy to leave their phones charging in different corners of the cafe - something I'd not seen anywhere else! Post-script - the supposedly dormant/inactive volcano erupted 3 times the day after we were there - either we angered the volcanic gods with our incessant camera clicking, or by soaking our 'non licin' legs in its hot pools... close shave!! Volcano photos coming ...
... The hike is nice in the morning because it's sunny but still fairly cool, and we're up high enough we can kind of look out over Bandung.
Bandung is set like a bowl, we're in a big valley and we're surrounded by mountains from all sides, but it's easy to forget this because the haze often completely covers it that you can honestly not even see mountains. The haze is unreal, it's like looking down on a cloud that's hovering over a city yet you're above it and ...
