Travelling to Bandung during Hari Raya Haji (1 Sep to 4 Sep)

Hi,

I intend to travel to Bandung during this long weekend. I would like to know whether it will be super crowded during this public holiday.

Thanks

Most welcome. Just pick another dates - not public holiday and not a weekend.

hi fellow tripadvusors, I was about to book tickets for the Labour day (may 1) long weekend, if we book at a hotel that is centrally located is it still a bad idea to travel at this time? My husband cannot take any weekdays off so it's a weekend or never :(

Choose " never". Or another destination.

book at a hotel that is centrally located is a better idea if you plan to go around hotel by walking.

Hi! Im thinking of booking a hotel near Bandung Indah Plaza. Will I still be affected by the crowd? Really keen on Bandung and wondering if there is a way to get around the crowd. Will the tourists attractions be packed with people as well?
