To avoid copyright issues, it would be good if the pictures are taken by yourself.Urang bandung 08:54, 21 July 2006 (EDT)
Hotel and Restaurant Classification
Is it possible to split hotel and restaurant into "budget", "mid-range" and "splurge"?
urang bandung, i just wanted to say thank you for a very good article! your work is certainly appreciated :-) -anonymous Canadian dude
Currently Bandung is developing a lot with good Indonesian economy. I have put the districts/area information in the guide, anyone has an idea of what should we do after this to reach a Star status?Hosana.k 04:04, 11 February 2012 (EST)
Telephone format inconsistency
As you can see, there are different format for telephone. And I would like to standardize into (which I believe, ITU format) +International_number Area_Code PhoneNumber for example +62 22 911.
Other way is to add Area Code information in top section and remove all International_number and Area_code at all. Since all these place was located in Bandung, it would be safe to assume International number and Area code would be +62 22 xxx
The Meaning of "Kota Kembang"
I'm not saying that your writing was totally wrong or anything, it's just that I don't think it's fair to suggest that the "kembang" (blossom) in "Kota Kembang" refers to the ladies, because there are some other opinions as well. I admit, I always thought that "kembang" in "Kota Kembang" refers to the flowers, I know, silly me right. But just recently I had the chance to speak with the people in Bandung tourism office, and Mr. Raksanagara himself told me about how wrong I was thinking that way. The "Kembang" actually refers to "berkembang" (lit.blossoming) in a sense of "developing" ("Developing Country" in Bahasa Indonesia is "Negara Berkembang"). It was called that way because it developed so much from a serene and cool tea plantation site, to trendy resort city for the Dutch and other Europeans, to a city of Indonesia's revolution against the colonial Dutch, to the city of Asian-African Conference, to favorite weekend getaway for Jakartans, and so on.
So yeah, that's the official scenario. But like I said, I'm not saying that other stories are wrong either. I think it'd only be fair if we explain all of the possible meanings of "kembang" in this context; the ladies (and the gentlemen too, why not. I'm sure mr. Urang Bandung himself is a very handsome man), the development, or even the actual flowers themselves, because there are still alot of flower plantations in the suburbs.Jiwa Matahari 04:55, 13 August 2007 (EDT)
As good as this article is (very), it should not have guide status as none of the listings are in WT template format. --Burmesedays 12:12, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
Jakarta Airport Transfer
Moved listing from article, possible Tours listing and appears to be a Jakarta based service offering services from Jakarta, including airport transfers from CGK-Bandung. Bandung car rental services are not described on their website, they have a Jakarta address and tel number. Bandung is presented more in the context of day tours and accommodation bookings. Appear to be a legitimate Jakarta based service but not a Bandung car rental or driver with car provider. Their( Jakarta) prices are also quite absurd. felix 11:00, 25 July 2011 (EDT)
The listing has recently also appeared in the Jakarta article and been edited accordingly in that article. -- felix 11:37, 26 July 2011 (EDT)
