Perched 768m above sea level, Bandung is a cool, green enclave that still bears traces of its colonial past. The Dutch set up tea plantations in the area in the mid-19th century; over time, Bandung grew into a resort city with outstanding Art Deco architecture, making it a visual pleasure. A mere half-hour by plane from Jakarta, it’s a serene foil to the frenetic Indonesian capital. Bandung hums with an energy all its own.
