Shopping in Bandung
Our trip this time more for shopping. As usual, our favorite place is Pasar Baru. No matter how many times we went there, we unable to visit all the shops there. Its too huge with to many sellers. Our hands is fulled with shopping begs just by visit few levels. Most of everything that we need can be found here.
The most popular item here is Telekung, the apparel that Muslim women wear during perform their prayer.Variety of designs and colors. And the most important part is, it is a lot lot more cheaper than in Malaysia. Every time I went there I will surely at least buy 1 for me.
Perfumes are cheap too. You can select any fragrance and any bottle/ size or content.The 10ml perfume just IDR 10000 per bottle.
We went there since morning and did not realized we've been walking and shopping for few hours already till our stomach makes noise . Will all the shopping begs, our access was limited to the nearest area only. So we walked to the Ampera restaurant opposite Pasar Baru.
As for me, hard to find cloth for my body size in Malaysia but its different in Bandung. Lot of choices and design. Ideal place to shop for Muslims apparels.

However, Taxi Fare from pasar baru will be lot more expensive due to the traffic jam . But normally from to Pasar Baru to Festival City Link@Pop hotel the taxi fare is IDR 50000.
