Chillaxing at hot springs & volcanos
This is a very long overdue post about my trip to Bandung, but well, here it is!
You can read my previous post here: http://www.seraphsam.com/2015/01/first-2015-trip-bandung-indonesia.html
My colleague actually did tell me a story of her friend getting possessed over there by an old man's spirit when they visited Tangkuban Perahu, but luckily nothing happened to us when we visited. Phew!
Check out the photos of the Volcano:
The slopes of the volcano which the locals use to sell berries, handicraft and more!
Check out the steam coming out from the magma down there

There Chung goes!
After the volcano, we decided to head to the hot springs around the area, and on the way, we spotted some rare satay that's being grilled at the roadside. Its Sate Biawak! which means lizard satay! We stopped by ordered a few sticks and actually its pretty delicious!

Look how beautiful it turned out!
After sate, we headed to one of the hot springs around the area. These hot springs are sulfuric and Locals believe that it has healing properties. We spent about 2 hours there soaking in the spring, and I would advise you not to let it hit your face! I could feel all my pores opening up and all the acne scars on my face starting to itch, but my face was really clean after that LOL!

To end the night, Cantya brought us to a secluded spot where we could see the whole of Bandung. The lights were beautiful and it was really chilly up in the hills! definitely a great place to go to, but I have no idea how to give directions as it is in the middle of nowhere!
The trip was definitely great and I would really encourage anyone to head to Bandung for a relaxation trip as it is worth it! Once again I want to thank Cantya for hosting us there!
