Lembang is also a great site to enjoy your family holiday. Visiting Farmhouse Lembang or De'Ranch is a must if you're with children. Visit the Hobbit house in Farmhouse or go horseback riding in De'Ranch, both are wonderful family-friendly attractions. You want something different? Stargazing at Bosscha Observatory offers a more educational type of vacation.

In contrast to Bandung, where you can find modern mall and shopping centers, Lembang is better known for its culinary destinations. The Floating Market Lembang is a colorful and vibrant leisure park, which sells various cuisine on boats.

People say that green is a good color to relieve stress. As a fertile highland, Lembang is lush with plantations: tea, strawberry, and vegetables. You can visit these plantations and pick your own fresh crops or buy them from local farmers. These places are best when you want to get closer to nature.

If you’re looking for an adventure at the highland forest, Cikole Orchid Forest would be a great place for you to explore. Only 5 kilometers from Alun-alun Lembang or approximately 45 minutes from Bandung, the Cikole Orchid Forest provides a comforting breeze of mountain air with the absence of pollution. It is filled with pine trees, sophisticated landscapes, and a vast variety of orchids. There are approximately 20,000 orchids including some of the rarest types such as West Java’s Phavio, as well as from Argentina, Peru, the Philippines, and many others. Furthermore, the place also serves many interesting activities to enjoy, such as flying foxes and a wooden bridge that hangs 23 meters above the valley.

Get Around

Since Lembang is very close to Bandung, it's easy to find a transportation to get around and enjoy the beauty of its tourism hotspots. Your hassle-free option is to join a tour. Using a tour allows you to have a planned sightseeing without worrying anything. However, if you want more freedom, exploring Lembang by yourself using public transport is very possible. There are taxis, transportation apps,  and public transportations to choose from.

Get There

It takes only about 30 minutes to reach Lembang from the very heart of Bandung. If you are from Jakarta, you need to go to Bandung first, by air or land. If you're planning to drive there, avoid the weekends or public holidays, because what is normally 2-hours trip can turn into 4-6 hours trip.

Using airplane (or helicopter, there are heli-taxi companies in Jakarta offering ride to Bandung) is not necessarily the fastest way to get there considering you have to get to an airport first and wait for the flight. But if you choose to do so, you can hail a taxi from Bandung's Husein Sastranegara Airport to Lembang or hire a personal driver to get you around.

You can also take the train if you like. It takes about three hours from Jakarta to Bandung. The plus side is a scenic route as the train makes its way through the long tunnels and majestic mountains. Once you reach Bandung Station, you have a wide range of transportation choice, such as taxis, ride-hailing apps, and public transportation.

Another way to reach Lembang from Jakarta is by driving a private car or taking public transportations such as bus, minibus, or shuttle bus. The 150 km toll road connecting Jakarta-Bandung makes driving the fastest mean of transportation. Although, it can be very congested on the weekends and public holidays, so make sure you leave early and plan ahead. If you are a foreign tourist, we advise you to take public transportation or rent a car and a driver.
