We got a train from Gambir station in Jakarta to Bandung which took about 3 hours. The journey was pleasant with comfy seats and air conditioning, we did pay a little extra for the a/c but it's worth it. the sprawl of the city was vast, it took at least half an hour to start to see some green. before that we went past skyscrapers, slums and lots of mosques and everything Inbetween. it was a good way to see more of the city as we had only seen a small part of it.
We got to Bandung and had to walk along a busy road with no pavement but was only a short walk to our hostel which was in a new development called paskal hyper square half filled with shops, restaurants and lots of karaoke bars? Indonesians must love karaoke, we are yet to go to one yet, I will try and persuade Olly...
Hunni hostel. Been a while since I have slept in bunk beds!
The best thing about the development was the amazing food court at the end of the development containing at least 40 food stalls, chairs benches and tables and pretty water features. We went there every night we were in Bandung which was 3 nights and went to a differnt stall every time...but I had the same juice every day because it was delicious...lychee and orange! Tastiest juice ever!
