We stayed in a small but really comfortable home. We slept on the floor with our son in a portable crib. We spent most evenings outside on the tile patio, sipping wine and relaxing.

We ate in a really great Thai resteraunt in downtown Bandung. You can order cocktails and a meal. The food was absolutely fantastic with a very clean, nice atsmosphere. Skip the mall in downtown Bandung. It is dirty and not very interesting, with crapy food and a McDonalds. Very crowded.

While in Bandung we traveled North to the hot springs. These were like giant pools full of really hot water. One could order food, though not great. Near the hot springs was a rather large, beautiful tea plantation. Worth touring!! On the way up to the tea plantation, you will see some people selling food along the main street. Do yourself a favor - stop and get some roasted corn on the cob. It is an awsome experience. The corn is soaked in sombal and super sweet. Make sure to bring a sweater and coat, as it gets cold at the tea plantation and hot springs at night. You can get a room and spa services at the hotsprings too. They are pretty nice.
