Yes, you read that right! An actual active volcano that looks like an overturned boat!

The three craters – Domas Crater, Ratu Crater, and Upas Crater form the Tangkuban Perahu. Out of the three, Domas Crater is the only one you can hike to get close to it, as the other two remain active craters. 

It is one of the most popular tourist spots in Bandung. It’s no surprise either as there are so many activities here.

If you’re not up for hiking, you can opt to stroll around the area to admire and snap the scenic view of Ratu Crater. You can park at the upper parking lot and almost immediately see the Ratu Crater!

Instagrammable Places In Bandung

You could hike to the Domas Crater, where you can enjoy a soothing foot massage in the mud or dip your feet in the hot springs. You can even buy eggs cooked on the hot surface!

Upas Crater is smaller and less accessible compared to the other two. If you’re up for it, there is a hiking trail that connects Upas Crater and Domas Crater. 

It may get cold or rainy there so don’t forget to bring your jacket. There are food stalls where you can enjoy their snacks if you’re hungry. As you will be doing plenty of walking, a good pair of hiking shoes is a must.

From my experience, while you’re at Tangkuban Perahu, many locals will keep following you, attempting to sell their wares at high prices. 

Some locals may even offer their services as a guide to Domas Crater. However, as you reach Domas Crater, they might tell you they can’t accept tips and insist you purchase wares from them instead. 

In my opinion, this is a breathtaking place to visit if it’s your first time in Bandung. Just stand your ground and be firm to say no to the pushy sellers.

Best Time To Visit Bandung

The best time to visit Bandung is during the dry season from June till September. It will be easier to travel as many attractions in Bandung are located outdoors. The roads won’t be as slippery to travel, which is an added safety bonus. 

How To Get Around Bandung

1. Rent Your Car/Drive On Your Own

By driving on your own, you are in control of your destination and time. You can take your time at one destination if you prefer. 

However, driving on your own will be more stressful, as you are not familiar with the roads in Bandung. 

2. Hire A Driver

Sit back and relax, as your driver takes you around Bandung to visit the best attractions for you to enjoy! You don’t have to worry about navigating the foreign roads on your own as you take in the stunning sights of Bandung.

3. Use E-Hailing App (Within The City)

Grab and Gojek are widely used in Bandung, which are highly useful if you want to get around the city.
