Buttons on the move: Bandung I

Over the weekend, my friend and I went on our maiden shopping trip to Bandung, Indonesia. The airport is very a small building. It took a while for us to get through the immigration (two lanes for immigration section) and customs.

We were greeted by a staff member from the Dago Guest House. He drove us from the airport to the guest house. Dago is located in the North of Bandung, in a mountainous area. The air is fresh in the morning and in the sunny afternoon, you could feel the cooling breeze brushing your skin, which I found pretty weird. Felt like hot and cold at the same time.

I booked a room via the Internet after reading few reviews and checking with my travelling companion. The price is affordable and the room is ok with basic necessity like gas water heater, bathroom (sharing with toilet), air conditioning and TV. The channels on the TV was pretty impressive with many choices from AXN, Star Movies, Discovery Channel, MTV to name a few.

Bandung is well-known as a shopping paradise for shopaholics. It offers many factory outlets for one to shop from morning till night. Once we reached our room, without any haste both of us headed to factory outlets. Without any particular itinerary in our minds, we let Mr. Hery, from the guest house, to take us around....
