Bandung is a cool, green enclave that still bears traces of its colonial past. The Dutch opened tea plantations in the area in the mid-19th century and over time, Bandung grew into a resort city with outstanding art deco architecture that makes the city such a visual pleasure. It is a mere half-hour by plane from Jakarta and is a serene yet thriving foil to the frenetic Indonesian capital. Perched 768 metres above sea level, Bandung hums with an energy all its own.
