Bandung in a Nutshell
I’ll let the photos do the talking! 😉
A superb vacation – will definitely go there again! We had a great supir (driver) the whole time we were there to bring us around, stayed at a really nice 2-bedroom apartment, experienced wonderful local food at equally gorgeous restaurants, the kids had fun horseback riding and strawberry picking… and yes, the shopping was marvellous! I love their local products (simple, yet elegant long-sleeved tops and knee-length dresses made of lovely stretchable cotton material), the factory outlets filled with known brands, and of course, the first class service from the sales person themselves! 🙂
I also came up with something whilst I was there, seeing the beggars on the road, with torn clothes. Instead of going with an extra empty bag (I purposely brought only 1 change of clothes), I plan to bring some of my unworn, still-good-condition clothes and just hand over to the supir to distribute them to whoever he wants!
A simple gesture that could mean so much to them, don’t you think? 🙂
