“You can't help but enjoy this”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

I have been to this attraction 3 times now and even though the experience is always the same, it's such a great experience that you don't care. On arrival you buy very reasonably priced tickets and you get a mini Angklung keepsake that also proves you're a paid visitor. (Angklung, if you didn't know are musical instruments made from bamboo of different lengths to provide a tone)

The main auditorium has tiered seating and the show is just a mass of colour and sound with kids from the Angklung school dancing, and playing Angklung wearing amazingly colourful costumes. The best bit is where they give everyone in the audience their own, single tone Angklung and get everyone to follow a piece of music.

Oh, and don't forget to visit the gift shop, it's very reasonably priced and a great place for oleh-oleh (souvenirs)

One of my favourite of all Indonesian experiences!

saung Angklung udjo is a perfect place to spend your holiday and learn about sundanese culture. In there you can watch the angklung orchestra's performance, dance, wayang golek and the most exciting part is when you can shake the Angklung. Its so much fun!!you'll be amazed by its sound and more thrilled when you saw the orchestra's performance. You have to visit saung Angklung udjo when you come to bandung!

“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a place where you could spend your two-hours enjoying lovely Sundanese culture, which includes: wayang golek, helaran song and dance, a beautiful Merak or Topeng dance [performed by three or more girl-dancers], a breath-taking bamboo orchestra played by boys and girl [one of them plays the angklung-toel expertly!], and the most unforgettable session is a togetherness in playing the angklung. I have visited this place four-times, and I plan to go there even more! I enjoyed every minute of it <3!
