The city of Bandung is high on the Parahyangan plateau in the middle of West Java, surrounded by old volcanoes. The weather is cool and comfortable, and the scenery is beautiful. It's a growing city, and the technology center for all of Indonesia.

Jalan Asia-Afrika is the main street in the center of the city. It was named after the Asia-Afrika conference of non-aligned nations which was held in Bandung back in the 1950s.

Jalan Braga is the fancy shopping street of Bandung.

Bandung is also the cultural center of West Java, the "Sundanese" region. Here an artist is working on a traditional wayang golek puppet.


There are more pictures here from around Bandung, the interesting geology, and Pak Ujo's Music School. You might want to shop for some jeans, too.
