Many only experience the lush, volcanic panoramas of West Java (Jawa Barat) through the murky window of a lumbering bus or train, but this dramatic, diverse region has plenty to detain the inquisitive traveller who enjoys breaking away from the standard Java traveller circuit. Historically, it's known as Sunda, and its people and language are Sundanese.


Our local Sundanese specialist will teach you all you need to know about West Java and the people who inhabit this area. From learning about local traditional ceremonies to preparing Nasi Timbel, a delicious local delicacy, you will get to the very heart of Sundanese culture.
