Short trip report to Bandung

We recently spent 4 days in Bandung and here are our impressions. The two volcanoes are wonderful. Tangkuban perahu is great, but Kawah putih is sublime. The drive to TPerahu is beautiful, with views of wonderful plantations and lots of places to stop to eat and take in the views, so plan for that. The drive to KP is less beautiful, but the lake, the color is almost out of this world. If you are around Braga street, try to eat at Kiosk, in City Walks, inside the complex that has Aston hotel. The food is quite good, prices are reasonable. They have live music from 6:30pm on, which is very enjoyable. We did not care much for the Hypersquare food court, especially if you need a taxi at night, with a long walk to the street. Now, the bad are traffic, traffic, traffic...

We had a very good driver that we used for two day trips. He is patient, drives carefully, gave us good advices on things touristy. Strongly recommended.

Can any of you destination guides inform me how one can travel reliably from Bandung to Malabar tea Estate in Pangelengan? I am visiting the estate to track an old family connection. We would prefer not to drive in Bandung!!

Thanks so much
