The West Java is filled with many amazing destinations. And we have prepared an amazing itinerary for you. We will start with Jakarta – the capital city of Indonesia. After a short stop to Old Batavia, basically an area with plenty of Dutch architectural building, we will continue to the most iconic monument in Jakarta, the Monas Monument.
Did you know that the top of Monas monument was originally built with 32kg of solid gold. However in 1995, that amount of solid gold has been increased to 50kg of solid gold to celebrate Indonesia’s 50th birthday. This national monument is iconic of Jakarta and is located in the most prime area of the city.
There are many folk tales coming from every corner of Indonesia. This famous mountain in Bandung is called the Tangkuban Perahu mountain. This mountain, carries a folk tale that told the story of murder, gods, an immortal mother, and a cursed son. A cursed son, deceived by his own immortal mother, got so angry, he kicked and overturned a boat (Perahu). Thus, many Indonesians will tell you that the Tangkuban Perahu mountain, was originally a boat.
Whether you’re a music lover or not, you will be amazed with one of Indonesia’s traditional music instrument – angklung. Made of bamboo, you play the instrument by simply shaking it side to side. Enjoy the Angklung show at Saung Angklung Udjo and get a chance to play this uniquely Indonesian music instrument.
