A Good Photo Op. Must Go. But for Photo Op only.

This building is the city icon. If you are a visiting tourist, then you should go here for a photo op. Don't expect much to do though.

Nice enough building. Lit up nicely at night. It has a very funny name which is what attracted me to it. 😂.....look as much as you want you won't find any chicken around here to go with the sate. It would have to be a giant one any way!

Great place to learn about the government of Bandung. This is a huge complex and you need lots of time to see all of it.
