Cikapundung St. Used Magazines and Books Market
Text and picture by Eki Qushay Akhwan
This is one of my favorite places in Bandung: The Cikapundung Street used magazines and books market. You can find used magazines and books of almost any sorts and in almost any major international languages here at prices so affordable that coming here is like taking a literary/publication tour around the world.
Jalan Cikapundung (Cikapundung Street) is a short tributary street adjecent to Asia Afrika Street in the center of the city. The market is located on the eastern sidewalk of the street. I don't know when this market started, but it's a popular destination for those who love reading and collecting old (and collectible) magazines and books.
More on this story on tomorrow's posting.
