The city of Bandung has long been known as a resort city for centuries. Being located on high land making the weather much cooler compared to any other big cities in Indonesia. Bandung itself has 2 magnificent active volcanoes, located in the north and in the south. The natural beauty they offer gives a certain thrill to both domestic and foreign visitors, making them the most popular volcanoes in the West Java province. These volcanoes are called Tangkuban Perahu (located in the north) and White Crater (located in the south).
