Location

As the main city of West Java, Bandung, the most populous province in Indonesia, there will never be a dull moment in Bandung (except perhaps in traffic). Like Jakarta, Bandung is also a hub of economic activity and entrepreneurship, keep your eyes open for opportunities here. You will have access to most if not all of the amenities of a Western country. Some of the setbacks associated with Bandung include the oppressive traffic and pollution. Clear and the obvious disparity between an excessively wealthy elite and disadvantaged communities.

ITB is located centrally in Bandung. There are small bus / angkots and motorcycle taxis (ojeks) available within the vicinity. Traffic can be difficult sometimes around the campus although not nearly as terrible as Jakarta.
