City walk with guide in Bandung
The past revives
Discovering the city of Bandung yourself is a great idea, but with the help of a local guide your city walk will be even better.
Through the stories your guide will tell you, you will see history coming back to life again.
Can you imagine how the city bustled a 100 years ago?
In colonial times, the elite, who had become rich because of the tea plantations, met here and shopped in abundance in the luxurious shopping street.
We would like to take you back in time. The stately Art Deco buildings are already waiting for you.
What’s the plan?
✔ We walk through the center of Bandung, through the old shopping streets. The city is modern and lively, and still attracts many people from all over the world to the many shops. Only now it is mainly people on a bargain hunt for cheap designer clothes.
✔ Along the way, the traces of the past are still clearly visible. The city has many Art Deco buildings. Walk the same streets as Charlie Chaplin. Think how the carriages stopped here in front of the classic hotels, so that the “lords of the tea” could enjoy an extensive “rice table” or spend the night in the old hotels that still welcome guests today.
✔ The most delicious coffee is made at “Kopi Aroma”. For more than 90 years, , the old family business has been selling the best coffee according to the original recipe. Look inside and you will feel like you step back in time.
✔ Since 1918 you can enjoy delicious food and coffee at Maison Bogerijen, the old patisserie of Mr L van Bogerijen. Even the governor general of the Dutch Indies used to eat here! Take a seat and taste the old Dutch pastry.
