                                      Host to the historic Asia-Africa Conference in 1955, Bandung is now a center of
                                      higher education, commerce and aircraft industry, which despite its modern
                                      amenities still retains much of its colonial-era charms. Bandung is also
                                      renowned for its shopping opportunities, particularly for shoes, textiles,
                                      clothing, food and denims. Bandung is easily accessable from Jakarta by train,
                                      road or air. The distance from Jakarta is about 180 km. It takes 3 hours by
                                      train or car through toll road. There are direct flights from Singapore and
                                      Malaysia to Bandung International airport (Air Asia and Singapore airlines).
