By Land


This is an ideal choice if you enjoy good views along the journey where your eyes will be spoilt by the beautiful lavish green of undulating hills, terraced paddy fields, and tea plantations. From Jakarta, the 180 km journey takes 3 hours.

PT. KAI Persero (Kereta Api Indonesia) provides excellent train services to reach Bandung from several cities in Indonesia:

Bus and Shuttle Car

There are also convenient buses operated by Primajasa, which will take you to Bandung (Bandung Supermall) directly from Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta. The cost is around USD 8.5 per person.

However, if you’re looking for something private and elegant, shuttle cars (X-trans, CityTrans, and Primajasa) are also available at the airport. The cost is approximately USD 14.0 per person. All of them provide great, reliable, and safe services.

Transportation Mode around Bandung


You won’t want to miss the unique experience once you decide to take a ride in one of Bandung's most common transportation, the Angkot. It is an acronym from Angkutan Kota, Indonesian for "City Transport". This is the cheapest public transportation you can get in Indonesia. So, don’t expect a five-star service or much convenience when going around with it.
