CIANJUR District Culture and Tourism Office is developing a train tour to Gunung Padang, in cooperation with national train company Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI), to attract more tourists to Bandung, West Java.
Cianjur District Culture and Tourism office tourism business section head Neneng Sumaryanti said: “The highlight of the 90-minute train ride between Bandung and Cianjur will be South-east Asia’s biggest megalithic site, Gunung Padang. Along the way, travellers will also enjoy the scenery and go through an old 600m long tunnel. The journey itself will tell a story.”
The office is inviting about 30 travel agents and event organisers from Jakarta and Bandung to try the attraction at the end of the month. “We would like their input before releasing the product to the public,” Sumaryanti said.
