Palais Dago - Bandung

Well it was really a long break. The last post was on Sept 2013 (about 18 months ago). Let's take a break from HK scenery. We move on to Bandung for a while. For accommodation Palais Dago Hotel is good. It is quiet but traffic on the road in-front is quite hectic. But it's about the same at most locations in Bandung anyway. If you want to visit ITB you just have to walk about 10 minutes from Palais Dago.
