    • cost of driver; connection to Yogya/Borobodur

      by FreeSpirit_sg Online Now Jun 2, 2014 at 9:59 PM

      Hi VTers,
      Could you help me with these:
      (a) how much is it to hire a driver for a day - to go to Lembang area for the volcano and hotsprings? Actually, we will be spending a night at one of the resorts in Lembang but I expect we still need to hire a car for the trip there? Please advise.
      (b) I plan to go from Bandung to Yogya to re-visit Borobodur (it's been about 20 years since my first and last visit there). Could you advise about transport (train - time, how to get ticket, fare... or other means)? Also, any places I should see in between or around there as well?

      Thanks so much... I have again been too busy with work to really read up much.

      Best regards

    • Which area is good to live as a foreigner?

      by Online Now May 18, 2014 at 5:22 AM

      Hi there! I am expected to join Institute of Technology in Bandung (ITB) and will stay there for 2 years as a student. Last time I visit there for a short time, I stayed in Cisitu area- it was very close to the campus and enjoyable to live for a short time, but not for a long time. So.. I would like to know whether there is such an area that many foreigners live.- it might means that the area is safe, quite easy to live with english, and easy to find variety of foods. As I searched earlier, Setiabudi / Cihampelas area is both close to the campus and having shopping mall, but I'd like to ask to the people who live/lived there. It would be very helpful if you share your idea of the area and maybe the average cost per month! Thanks in advance!

    • Bandung car/driver costs

      by Bandung-hols Online Now Feb 18, 2014 at 6:45 PM

      Good morning,
      My group of friends (total 8 adults) will be visiting Bandung in April for 4 days. We'll be staying at Jl Progo. It is our 1st visit & we're looking for a reliable car/driver. I received a quote for 500,000rps for airport transfer & shopping for 1st day & 1 mil rps per day for trips to the volcanos. We were given a Toyota Avanza & Isuzu Elf. As I do not know much abt cars, is the Toyota Avanza able to seat 8 adults? Also is the cost reasonable? Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.

      I have just emailed Aldhy for his availability/cost. I note that you had recommended him highly.

      Dangerous areas

      by JayR54 Online Now Jan 21, 2014 at 11:50 PM

      Hello! I was hoping someone could tell me what areas in Bandung are considered less safe and perhaps experience higher levels of crime than other areas of the city. As a foreigner are there areas, districts or streets, that should be avoided because they are lots of petty criminals, or are known to be gang areas?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
