Gunung Padang, Cianjur, Indonesia

Another interesting place to go ~ ~ ~
Gunung Padang is a megalithic site located in Cianjur, Indonesia. It is popular nowadays, because some TV stations have visited this site and reported it.

How to get there?
- Rental a car. You can rental car from Bandung. It is easier because the drivers usually had known the place. So, you just enjoy the ride. *actually you cannot really enjoy the ride because the road is just very snaky.
- Drive own car. Firstly from Bandung use toll and go out at the Padalarang toll. Then ask for directions. I don't really confident to show you the way >.<
- Backpackers' style. Ride a bus to Cianjur. Ride several angkot (public transportation in form of car). Finally, ojek (motorcycles). *more tiring, more complicated, more ezpensive, and more memorable

How long it takes to go the the site?
Yesterday, when my mother drove from Bandung to Cianjur, it took about 2 hours (no traffic jam). From Cianjur to the site took 1-2 hours. So, in total 3-4 hours.
