Bandung is a large city of 2.5 million inhabitants in Java (Indonesia), located about 120km southeast of Jakarta at an altitude of 750-800m asl. The city lies in a plain surrounded by mountains, which are up to 2400m high. Due to its altitude Bandung has a more pleasant climate than many Indonesian cities. There is not that much to see in Bandung, but the city is a pleasant place to visit and the surroundings are interesting. Several factory outlet stores in Bandung offer heavily discounted designer clothes. Bandung is connected by a train line with Jakarta and Surabaya and has an international airport.
