Vacation in Bandung west java Indonesia

I had a great times with my family and friends in my homeland country Indonesia, It is such a short visit,but I spent some quality times with them in two weeks, I wish I have more times but they understand I have to go back to US and back to work :)





In my small town I still see traditional transportation for short distance called becak= pedicab/trishaw
or bridge= horse-drawn two-wheeled cart.

On the third day we go to the beach PANGANDARAN with all my family my mom,brother and sister and their family, I'm still tired and jet lagged at the time but sure I had a great times.



My bother having fun with the kids ;)



You will see this view in the beach no bikini ,no swim, they just play with water ;)


This is a traditional Sundanese restaurant in my home town, a local owner the name of the restaurant are "Saung Palupuh" ( no link or website)
They served Sundanese foods ( west java traditional foods )  in old traditional home style, there is  short, long and wide table in the middle of the room / saung ( sundanese ) and we have to sit down on the floor to eat, I have lunch with my high school friends and enjoyed all the foods we order, I love the tropical atmosphere in this place, The location is about 2 miles from my mom home.






I use to live in Bandung the third large city in Indonesia,which is about 19 miles from my parents home,so I can go anytime to catch public transportation and meet my friends and catch up before I go back to the US.

  3. What a marvelous visit to your homeland. I enjoyed looking at all the photos and reading about your travels. Some of the photos remind me of Sri Lanka and make me homesick too. :) I hope you get to visit your homeland again soon. :)
