Bandung is perhaps most notably famous for its history with the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The Dutch influence can still be felt today, the city is famous for its European architecture offering a unique mix of eastern and western culture. Away from the city itself, you will find a breathtaking string of mountains. Here you can enjoy adventure activities and outdoor sports when you’re not teaching in the heart of the city.
Bandung offers amazing architectural delights with its Dutch colonial style buildings & neighbourhoods, and is also home to the world famous Cipanganti Mosque, built in 1933.
Bandung offers amazing delicacies including basreng (spicy snack made from fried meatballs) and batagor (like Siomay but fried instead of steam, served with peanut pace and sweet soy sauce.)
