Bandung, September 2018 - Following the success of Jakarta’s recent anniversary and Bandung’s anniversary celebrations last year, Archipelago International once again held various exciting events across the city to honor Bandung’s 208th-anniversary last month, from culinary creations to flower planting, city tours, and special discounts.

Pasundan Corner & Special Sundanese Delicacies

A selection of flavorful, traditional Sundanese dishes were offered to guest; available at all seven Archipelago International Hotels across Bandung. Presented during breakfast at a special "Pasundan Corner", all guests were invited to taste an array of delicious Sundanese delicacies created by the talented hotel chefs. Archipelago International also added special Sundanese dishes to its menus from 17th September to the end of the month, including Nasi Tutug Oncom, Karedok, Peyeum Goreng Keju, Baso Tahu Bandung, Batagor Bandung, Bandros, Soto Bandung, and many more, making the celebrated cuisine available throughout each day.

Flower Planting Ceremony

Contributing to Bandung’s blooming environment and to further encourage an eco-friendly environment, Archipelago International held a Flower Planting ceremony on 12th September 2018 at Taman Pustaka Bunga Kandaga Puspa. Representatives from all Archipelago International Bandung Hotels joined the event, planting around 208 flowers together with Mr. Ir. Iwan Sugiono, Kepala Bidang Pertamanan Kota Bandung, and his team.

The Bandung Heritage Tour

Archipelago International held a second Heritage Tour this year in 2018, choosing Bandung as the prized location, following the success of its inaugural Heritage Tour in Jakarta. An encyclopedia of cultural heritage, the Bandung Heritage Tour took to the city’s iconic Bandros to explore the surrounding beauty. The one-day tour visited around 32 heritage spots, led by a knowledgeable guide from Himpunan Pramuwisata Indonesia (HPI).
