it is your list of place to visit ? only list ? because need more work to arrange those place so you can visit them without spend too much time.

monday:

lunch at kampung daun is wasting time if you want to back to hot spring and floating market after lunch. visit setiabudi fo and cihampelas (if still have time) this day also.

tuesday:

no need to go to paris van java again as you already visit it at sunday. shoe street is cibaduyut you mean ? go here after pasar baru. then go to dago / riau.

thurkai, hello and welocme to TA forums.

1/ good choice of travel dates!

2/Overall yourplan is DOABLE, but you have to eleborate on the sequesnce of the events on Monday.

NOTE: Kampung Daun is a waste of time/ money - mediocre food, lousy service, overpriced menu. Better have lunch at Sindang Reret or Sari Ater ( if you pan to soak in thermal pools).

3/ There is no NEED - to rent a car + driver in BDG for the whole stay and in advance, and with the passing time it becomes less recommended. Taxi service is VERY consistent, prompt, affordable and METERED. Use it with confidence. recommended companies: Blue Bird Group, Chipaganti.

Due to lots of scam in JKT forum originated from PM we start a close monitoring of such activity and ask members who were approached by illegal service providers ( car rental, guide, tours). This illegal practice will endanger your health, life, well being etc - AVOID at all costs. PLEASE to report to DEs. Your help is greatly appreciated. The only safe way to book car+ driver is VIA YOUR HOTEL concierge/ front desk.

Stay on the safer side of the road!
