The old Dutch colonials established tea plantations around the mountains southeast of Jakarta (then known as Batavia) in the eighteenth century, and a road was constructed to connect these plantations to the capital. But the planters weren't satisfied. They demanded the establishment of their own municipality, which was granted in 1906, and Bandung sprang into existence, gradually developing itself into a resort city. Luxurious hotels, restaurants, cafes and European boutiques were opened, hence the city was nicknamed "The Paris of Java". I remember it mainly for its fountains and street vendors.
