No problem! Professional tire patcher like this is everywhere. For a small fee you can get your tire fixed in minutes. They do all kinds of tires too: car's, truck's, scooter's (motorbike's), tube and tubeless tires. Some of them even open 24/7.

Bandung Pandu Dutch Cemetery

These neat rows of white tombstones on a green field are part of the Dutch Field of Honor (locally known as Dutch Cemetery) at Pandu area in the city center. Interred here are the Dutch casualties killed in the battle they fought to defend Ciater and Subang areas in the north of Bandung against the incoming Japanese army in the World War II. Some Dutch civilians from the Bangka-Belitung islands near Sumatera were also later interred (or re-interred) here. The cemetery is now maintained by the Commonwealth War Grave Commission (CWGC).
