Located on a large plateau at an altitude of 768 m, Bandung is the third largest Indonesian city with a population of over 2.4 million. It is the economic and administrative capital of West Java (Jawa Barat). Founded in the early 19th century, the city was transformed by the Dutch into a European-style administrative city. In the 1920s, a new city was built in the northeast with new buildings that are now called Gedung sate and Dago.
Known for its volcanoes and tea plantations , Bandung is also known for its colonial Art Deco architecture, lively university town atmosphere and relatively cool tropical climate, which is due to its elevated position (768 m above sea level). Bandung is also a popular shopping destination, with fashion boutiques located mainly on Jalan Setiabudi and Jala Riau in the Dago district.
The city of Bandung has a small heritage of Art Deco buildings, as well as typical colonial houses from the 1930s. Henri Maclaine-Pont was one of the first Dutch architects to combine each architectural style with local traditions. He believed that modern architecture should interact with local history and any indigenous elements13.
In 1920, Pont designed the first technical university in the Dutch East Indies, the Technische Hogeschool te Bandung (now the Bandung Institute of Technology), after which he was appointed professor of architecture.
There are many taxis. The most easily accessible are the minibuses called angkot (from angkutan=transport and kota=city). They are privately owned, inexpensive, and operate throughout the city. Municipal buses, called DAMRI, are located on more major roads. Bandung has two city bus terminals: Leuwipanjang, serving buses from the west, and Cicaheum for those from the east. Both are saturated and will be replaced by a larger one at Gedebage, so these two terminals will only cover the city centre. The location of this large station will be close to the Gedebage station.
At the Bandung Conference from 18 to 24 April 1955, newly independent Asian and African countries met to affirm their desire for independence and their non-alignment with the world powers.
