It is without a doubt a beautiful place to visit but i find the entrance fee extremely expensive INR 200,000 per person. There were 6 of us so we had to pay 1.2 million ruppiah. The facilities provided were mediocre. One more thing i find irritating are the sellers there. They will come in group and follow you around and... More

When i was a kid, i used to came here before. Grow older and i came back again. Haha! Tangkuban Perahu is really clean and beautiful. I would totally recommend you guys to bring a face mask coz of the smell of the sulphur. There will be a crowd of people selling stuff there. Some will even follow you wherever... More

I always bring friends here whenever they visited Bandung, weather they be Indonesian or foreigner. The view's incredible, and you should definitely go here while you're in West Java. But beware for those who haven't got Indonesian ID, the entrance ticket's ridiculously high. As great as this place might be, you should probably check online how much it'll cost you... More

I had a similar experience with the prev traveller.. Everything must pay for entrance now n its not cheap .. On top of that go to kawah domas must have a guide n must pay - more than the entrance fee .. I paid 200k entrance for 7 pax (total 1,400,000) .. N 400,000 for the guide .. They tried... More

When I see the crater of Tangkuban, I felt standing in other planet. The entrance ticket is 10times expensive than local but its worthy to feel the natural wonder. There are many sellers who sell souvenirs if u enjoy the bargain, this is the best time to show yr ability

If you're someone who's travelled extensively especially to places like Nz where you'd be spoilt for postcard-worthy picturesque places, then you could consider giving this a miss. But for those wanting to get more of the Bandung feel - other than just the endless factory outlet shopping- then this might appeal to you. However, the entrance fees have gone up... More

Don't understand why is this 'attraction' being listed in many travel guides as must go! I had to pay 1.2 million rupiah for my family of 4 to visit this place to get cheated by the guide and so many ‘salesmen’. My driver had already warned me before coming that there will be a lot of sellers trying to sell us souvenirs and healing stones... More

We went to both the Tangkuban Perahu and Kawah Domas. Both views are beautiful. The walk to Kawah Domas is about 1.2km, it took us about 20 mins to walk to the hot spring. We tried some boiled eggs and the foot bath there. The guide is friendly. As we are going with some Indonesian friends, we didn't have the... More

I was here 2 years ago and same as most reviewers, my friend and I were "robbed" SGD 70 - 90/pax for some awful keychains and beads! Even when we told them we don't have much cash with us, our OWN guide told us it's ok, he will follow us back to hotel and we can pass him cash from... More
