Bandung

'''Bandung''' ( south east of Jakarta, Bandung has cooler temperatures year-round than most other Indonesian cities (List of cities in Indonesia). The city lies on a river basin surrounded by volcanic (volcano) mountains. This topography provides a good natural defense system, which was the primary reason for the Dutch East Indies government's plan to move the colony capital from Batavia to Bandung.

The Dutch colonials first established tea plantations around the mountains in the eighteenth century, and a road was constructed to connect the plantation area to the capital ( ).

Since Indonesia achieved independence (Indonesian Declaration of Independence) in 1945, the city has experienced rapid development and urbanisation, transforming Bandung from idyllic town into a dense 16,500 people km 2 metropolitan area, a living space for over 2.5 million people. Natural resources have been exploited excessively, particularly by conversion of protected upland area into highland villas and real estate. Although the city has encountered many problems (ranging from waste disposal, floods to complicated traffic system, etc.), Bandung still attracts immigrants and weekend travelers.
