I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of a sucky traveler when it comes to my hometown.
Like, I could tell you where to get the best midiye dolma in Izmir, but I gotta think hard if you asked me about the best place to go shopping or the best coffee shop in Bandung. And I wouldn’t guarantee that I could eventually find the answer. 😛
The thing is, despite the fact that I’ve spent 20++ years in Bandung, I rarely have time to explore the city for the sake of being local. I mean, you probably know by now that I’m not exactly a cafe-hopper, and more often than not… I always get too lazy to go out as I only imagine the possibilities to face the traffic jam. Especially during the weekend!
I mean, seriously… As a passenger, I just don’t want to spend extra money for cabs. As a driver, I just can’t hold on to my dear life to drive in the bad traffic. And I’ve been living like a spoiled brat long enough in my life to not consider the other options of public transportations.
So on this post, I would like to share a hidden gem in Bandung that I have visited for the first time a few weeks ago. Located in the west part of Bandung, Stone Garden Geo Park could be reached more than 2 hours from Bandung city center by car with traffic jam.
The good thing is that you could also reach this off-beaten spot in Bandung by train. And that’s what I did when I visited the place. 😉
