Commercialization of a volcano site


Tangkuban Perahu is an active volcano that is about a two hours’ drive from where I live.  It is about 30km north of Bandung, and it is a hub for local merchants.  The shot above is of all of the shops, both retail and food, that line the northernmost part of the trail.  There are at least five times as many shops on the total site, but this shot offered the best vantage point of the shops and trail.

  1. Check out Kawah Putih next time you are in Bandung. Much less commercialised and great for photos (it is time limited though because of the fumes). Can also indulge in a spot of strawberry picking on the way back. One of my daughter’s most fun days when we last in Indonesia.
