Bandung Suburbs # 1: Waiting for The Train
Yes, Bandung is a modern city with a lot of amenities you can find in many other cities of its size. But, a lot of its suburbs and countryside are still rural, and some of them are still even contrastively underdeveloped.
Bandung and its suburbs and beyond are connected by different modes of transportation. But the favorite among them is still the train. It's cheap and has a lot of space for ... well, almost anything, like this bicycle and big bags full of farm produce. The level of comfort on this kind of train is of course not for everyone. But if you are adventurous enough and want to experience what it feels like to travel back in time, you may want to try it.
