Touristing Lembang


I guess I'm getting lazy nowadays. And by lazy I mean I don't write as much as I used to. Do I have the time? Yes. Do I have the guts? Probably not. I just finished my semester break and I went to a lot of places last holiday with my family. I took many photos and I was so gidy to post and write about it on the blog. After what seemed like forever editing the photos, my interest in writing the entire thing suddenly disappeared. This post itself has been lying around in this blog for a week (?) without any words or story of how I spent my holidays there. And for that, I'm truly sorry.

But here goes my apologize gift! I try to re-write this again. Though it's not gonna be as fun as how it's supposed to be. But I'm trying.

Okay so if any of you guys follow me on either Snapchat or Instagram, yes, I had a short holiday in Lembang with my family. It was very short, we went there on weekend because my dad insisted the whole family just because me and my brother were going back to Jogja the next day. Okay, back again, I've known Lembang since one of my senior at uni went there for KKN and the place itself got even more famous I guess when Awkarin visited the Farmhouse with her clique. Well at least that's in my opinion. I saw her photos and everything looks so interesting. We stayed for one night only and fortunately the road wasn't as crowded as how it was during lebaran so no, we didn't waste our time on the road again this time (yay to that). Our hotel was not so far from the Farmhouse and I guess it was a pretty great deal (IDR 800k/night).

The first photo above is me and my brother riding on a horse in our hotel. The horses and their owners got into the hotels and offered anyone who wanted to try riding them. Ugh I hate big animals. And it was scary as hell! I felt like I could just fall anytime from the saddle! It only costed like IDR 30k each round. I'm pretty sure you can find them scattered around Lembang.


First destination is; Farmhouse Susu Lembang! It's more like a thematic little village that offers you an amazing view of the old European houses and exterior design. I bet once you get inside the Farmhouse, you won't be able to hold yourself not to take loads of photos with your friends. The entrance fee is IDR 20k. I suggest you to park your car inside the Farmhouse not in the outside so you don't have to line up to buy the ticket. Trade your ticket with free cold or hot milk on your own choice of flavor!



Farmhouse is such a beautiful place, I can't stop saying that. You get to eat, take photos, play with animals and feed them directly, shop, even rent a European milk lady costume and wear it around the village. There are so many things you can do here with your family or friends. I'm sure will be going back to this place again, maybe with my friends?


My second visit to Lembang is the so famous Floating Market, located not far from the Farmhouse itself. Just like Farmhouse, once you buy yourself the entrance ticket, you can trade it with some free drinks of your choice. They have plenty more choices here than in Farmhouse. So choose wisely! :p Floating Market is a foodcourt, in a nutshell. But in here, the seller sits on a small boat literally floating on the water and we buy the foods from there. No cash, trade them with some cute coins like pictured below and start shopping. The foods are good, I can't say it's great though. But the ambiance is nice.


Aaannnd my third and last destination before going back home; Tangkuban Perahu. Is it too late to say that this is my first time visiting this place? While I'm sure some of you (or most of you) have visited this place at least 10 times in your life. For an active volcano, this place has a very low temperature. Yet I still saw some girls rocking super short shorts there. I wonder how could they battle the cold. Here below are my not so effortless photos of trying to look decent when really, I was almost frozen!
