It is recommended to land at Jakarta from any major Indian city, preferably Kolkata, Delhi or Chennai and to use Jakarta as a connection to Bandung, and Bandung can be reached by a bus or an additional flight.
Bandungês¾Husein Sastranegara International Airport is one of the smallest airports in Indonesia and travellers have to alight from the plane on the tarmac. Carriers that operate at the airport include: AirAsia, Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air, and Malaysia Airlines among others.
Despite Bandungês bad traffic, it is pretty easy to get a cab, even late at night-metered cabs are recommended for tourists, to decrease chances of overpricing. Taking the Angkot (small colourful vans) is ideal for short trips, as it is relatively cheap and fuss-free. Angkotês come in a variety of colours and passengers flag them as if they were a cab. If youêre unsure of fare rates (usually not more than IDR 7000 for a single trip) or transport routes, seek assistance from the locals.
A train ride would reveal to tourists the beautiful lush greenery of Bandung. These rides can start from Gambir Train Station or from Surabaya. More information can be found on: http://www.kereta-api.co.id
Buses operated by transport company Primajasa can take you from¾the Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta to Bandung. These rides cost around $7.
