If you wanna go to Bandung, I recommend you to go to Ciwidey. A small town part of Bandung. The most travelers visit here are Kawah Putih and Situ Patenggang Lake. There’s a new place in Situ Patenggang named Glamping Lakeside Rancabali. Located in Rancabali Tea Plantation, Glamping lakeside Rancabali is the most place to visit in Ciwidey now. There are Glamping or Glamour Camping, Situ Patenggang Lake and Phinisi Restaurant which are the icon of this place. If you come from Jakarta, I recommend you for using highway and take the exit on Soreang gate. It’s about 3 hours from Jakarta. You should try to stay at night in Glamping, it’s quite expensive to stay here but you can get all fun activities for free, plus you can get the beautiful scenic in front of your tent.

The legend said that if you going to here with your partner, your love life will be eternity ,wow!
