As the number three largest city in Indonesia, Bandung has attracted many travelers since the Dutch settlement era in the eighteenth century. The city itself is located on 768 meters above sea level, resulting in cooler air compared to other big cities in Indonesia, making it one of the most popular capital cities in the country. Being located on highland, Bandung offers many beautiful natural sightseeing, starting from volcanoes in both the northern and southern part of the city, lakes, various types and heights of waterfalls, tea plantation, and many more.
The temperature in Bandung is also considered very nice, at around 17 to 29 almost all year round. And the temperature can get even much cooler on higher lands such as nearby the volcanoes, which can drop to as low as 7 degrees Celsius, resulting in many tea plantation and strawberry farms in many areas of the city.
