Indonésie III.: Expedice 2011 Botanical Garden And A Safari Trip On The Way To Bandung City

Published: 30.7.2012
3th day - endless moving to the city of Bandung. On the way we stopped in the beautiful botanical garden and a visit to our fellow citizens for exotic safaris.

We said goodbye to Santika hotel and with an amazing 12 million Jakarta, sat in the minibus and set off on an endless journey to the city of Bandung.výborné jídlo v místní restauraci

Never-ending strip of shops

Thinking that the drive from Jakarta, landscape and we will be in the next town, it meets our expectations. In Indonesia it is not. "People living near rivers and roads, the road brings money," he told us Idong. And so an endless strip of shops, restaurants and hotels on the road never ends. In one such restaurant we stopped, had a good meal and as a memory gift from the owner, we got the package of local tea.

Tropical rain and flowers of all colours

Again, we got into the van and continued our endless journey to Bandung. Our next stop was the amazing botanical garden. It was really a pleasant variety journey, accompanied by quite a warm tropical rain. Garden came from the Dutch colonization, was perfectly prepared, and her visit was one of our most enjoyable experiences. Huge trees, ponds, flowers of all possible colours, it was great.

Bandung - the capital of West Java province

After we arrived in Bandung, we stayed at the hotel Star. The city was much smaller than Jakarta - the city itself did not even 3 million inhabitants, but its metropolitan area has over 7 million people. Because it is located on a plateau, there the temperatures were less murderous. In the evening we went for a walk, the hotel was near the place where centuries ago the Dutchman hammered into the ground pole and said: "This city will be." Managed, the city is there. So we went to that place to look, we found a mosque, under which dozens of poor protection rested. Rest house we found on the main street crossing, landlord willingly showed us which way we should go. Traffic was, of course, still crazy, we did not have a whistle or disc, so go across the street was indeed a problem. Eventually we succeeded. That was one of the less pleasant experiences to change.
