EXPERIENCE IN BANDUNG
It's hard to get good souvenirs of quality in Bandung
You can try the biggest shopping malls located next to attractions but you probably won't find all the small plates meant for decorations (limited) or fridge magnets but you will find vast collections of batik merchandise.
Danar has a batik boutique..its a wonderful place to shop for your batik merchandise at a good price....if your tour guide offer to get you lapis cake ...pls do not do so ...if he claim it's from kartika sari ...chances its not..vast difference in taste...don't get conned ....
Travelers with babies/toddlers who are still on strict milk formulas or diapers ...( if you are using international brand), bring your own supplies as most shops or big major shopping malls do not carry the brand that your child uses ..example Pampers, Pediasure, Huggie\.
If you wanna buy uncooked crckers (prawn or belinjau) visit the small convenience stalls, as major malls and local delicacies stall only sell cooked /fried crackers ......be careful of imitation goods as well.
You may be told that there is no souvenier shop at the airport. This is incorrect. There is indeed one small souvenir shops selling so many nice souvenirs but they don't accept credit cards ...so keep lots of indoensian rupiah on the day you are going home as you can find good quality souvenirs from that small souvenirs shop located in the airport departure area ..from tangkuban prahu to gedung sate fridge magnets...and whatever you want it ..they got it
