We decided to go to Bandung with Baraya Travel from Slipi Petamburan, Jakarta. It only cost us Rp.85.000/person/one way
First I looked for the place on AirBnB website. We found one that we like. Chez Bon Backpacker Hostel in Braga owned by Pak Bondan, the famous 'maknyus' guy from TV. Then I check pegipegi.com as it turned out the price is cheaper to book using pegipegi.com
Also I found out that we can use a voucher code (that I found from a nice Kaskus agan-agan) and get more discount.
|1st Day, tired but happy and excited|
|almost empty room|
Cost: Rp. 100.000/person/night
It was a bunk bed style and separate room for boys and girls. Our room was pretty big with 8 bunk beds. There were 2 other people when we came in and later on the 2nd day, one bule girl joined us, the rest of the other 2 girls left. It almost feel like we stayed there only the 2 of us most of the time. We stayed there for 3 days 2 nights.

I am pretty sure this is what you have been waiting for.
|Ceker Setan Restaurant, a must visit!!!!|
|Crunchy Ceker Rujak, Crunchy Chicken Feet with Sweet Soury Dip|
We got lost so many times trying to find this Qoedavan store. Their address on the website is slightly misleading. If you wanna look for it, make sure you look for it from Dipati Ukur area, close by UNPAD and look for a sign that says "Tahu Yun Yi", they haven't change the old sign.
In Qoedavan store, you can find a lot of variety of Bandung snacks; mochi ice cream (The best..seriously the best mochi ice cream I have ever tried for only 5k rupiah/each), macaroni, chips or keripik setan, etc
I bought 2 of the macaronies and soon it was all gone. I ordered 2 bigger portions from their BBM and had it deliver to Jakarta also soon it was all gone. Imagine how good it was!!
|Mie Lidi, childhood favorite snacks|
|Braga Permai's famous Nasi Goreng Rendang|
I bought this nasi goreng for dinner in Braga Permai. Braga Permai is a historical restaurant that has been there for a very long time. A lot of go there whether they are simply local people spending night out or tourist with a high curiosity for Braga's Colonial Looking Buildings.
Check out their website for more information on their delicious menu.
|Braga Huiz's Spagheti Cheese something|
Location: Jalan Braga No.47, Bandung, Jawa Barat 40111, Indonesia
|I ordered this Soft Omelette with Crispy Potato from Braga Huiz|
|Dessert; Ice Cream Chocolate|
|I forgot where did I get this picture.|
|Oleh-oleh for a friend.|
The highlight of our trip to Bandung was the food culinary. Everything is super duper cheap in Bandung. Mochi Ice Cream that will cost us 15k rupiah in Jakarta only cost us 5k rupiah/each. We ate like almost 5 of these delicious yummy cold mochi ice cream. The plate full of ceker cost only 35k rupiah, I think. Even in a nice looking restaurant like Braga Permai and Braga Huiz, everything is slightly cheaper than the price in Jakarta.
I forgot how much we spent for shopping and food, but I remember it was all worth it. Definitely going back for more of the mochi, ceker, macaroni, nasi goreng, FO(s), etc.
