how to reach bandung

Bandung is located approximately 140 km south eastern of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. The most convenient way to reach Bandung is by flying to its airport, however only a few airlines are served by the airport.

2.       Reaching Bandung from Jakarta Airport

The 140 kms distance from Jakarta Airport to Bandung can be traveled in 2-3 hours, however, due to unpredictable traffic in and around Jakarta area, be prepared for the journey to be stretched until 5-6 hours.

There are 3 companies serving the route from Jakarta Airport to Bandung: Primajasa, Cipaganti, and Xtrans. If your flight arrives in Jakarta Airport between 7 am and 10.30 pm, then the committee will book a seat in a bus or minibus for you. The Primajasa bus costs IDR 75.000 (~ USD 9) per person and the Cipaganti/Xtrans minibus costs IDR 150.000 - 200.000 (~ USD 15 - 23) per person. Alternatively, especially if you come in group, we can rent a car for you.
