Bandung Sights and Landmarks Guide, Indonesia

    Bandung, Indonesia - Attractions

A couple of hours from Jakarta, Bandung is best known for its’ abundant factory outlets.


Jalan Cibauyut is a shoe haven selling everything from Indonesian made leather hiking boots to soccer footwear, to pumps and stilettos.

Ci Walk is sedate and organized, and is a European themed environment, where the quality is more up market and so are the shoppers. 

 Jalan Asia Afrika houses a cluster of bakeries, selling traditional Indonesian and Dutch treats, and it also houses the oldest bakery in Bandung, called Sumber Hidangen.

Almost choking with genuine antique furniture, woodcarvings and jewelry is Sin Sin on Jalan Braga. Jalan Cihampelas, a street bustling with vendors, is also known affectionately as Jeans Street, for obvious reasons.

Colonial Heritage and History

Jalan Braga, which meets with Jalan Lembong and Jalan Asia Afrika, is an excellent place to view remnants of Indonesia’s’ Dutch colonial past.  It is somewhat in decline due to lack of maintenance, which is a shame, as the building was once so grand.

The Bandung Geology Museum is the most complete museum of its kind in Indonesia and is divided into three exhibitions: Geology of Indonesia, History of life and Geology for human life.  It also houses a large collection of life size dinosaur replicas, interspersed with real fossils of giant land turtles, hippos and other creatures.


In north Bandung, visit the gallery of renowned Indonesian artist, Selasar Sunaryo.  His work includes sculpting, installation, and paintings, with daring use of different techniques and materials that seem to contradict one another.
