I'm planning a trip to Bandung with my daughter in mid Aug. As this is our first time to Bandung, I'm hoping for some help and advice in planning our trip.
We plan to spend 5 nights total on our trip and in addition to spending time in Bandung City Centre, we would like to visit
(a) Kawah Putih, Situ Patenggang, any nearby tea plantations & strawberry farms in Ciwidey
I'm wondering if we should just plan to hire a car + driver and do 2 separate day trips from Bandung to see the attractions mentioned above or if it's better to stay a night each in Ciwidey and Lembang. We have already identified some places to stay there but are concerned if transportation will be an issue. We will need to get transportation from our hotel in Bandung to the hotel in Ciwidey (will probably not be a problem) but upon check out the next day, we will need to find our way from Ciwidey to our hotel in Lembang (the hotel in Ciwidey doesn't arrange transportation apparently). Later in Lembang, we will again need to make arrangements to go back to Bandung upon check out.
Is it worth it in your opinion to stay the night in both Ciwidey and Lembang or should i just base ourselves in Bandung and do day trips? Will doing day trips be sufficient time to visit most of those attractions listed above?
If the option of staying in Ciwidey and Lembang is possible, do you have any suggestions how I can arrange for transportation to get from place to place? I presume ride-hailing services like Grab will not be readily available there.
Appreciate any advice you can give in helping me decide where to base ourselves during the 5 nights.
