Day 3 Java – Pangandaran

Heading southeast from Bandung, the road passes through rolling hills and scenic volcanic peaks – this is the Bandung Yogyakarta road as far as Banjar. If you go via road taking the bus for example, it will only drop you so far as Ciamis or Banjar. That is why taking the 4848 is actually the […]
