Don't visit this city because you are going to wast money and time...unless you want to visit Taman Safari then do just like Indonesian people they comes in the early morning and leave the city at the evening
Not many things to do, but some of it is ok. Worst thing about this place? TRAFFIC JAM! You need to know when they open the road for one way or two way, once you got stuck in the middle it will take long time.
But it only happen in saturday, sunday, and public holiday.
Puncak is a good place to have some relaxation after busy life in the city. Only 2hr driving from Jakarta (exclude the queue of up/down cycle) Nice weather with fresh sightseeing of mountain and trees.
Puncak is a mountain area which offering a freah air and nice view. One of the most wanted attraction in Puncak is Taman Safari Indonesia (real wild life park.

you can go to puncak by bus or by car. if you go by bus, you can go to terminal kampung rambutan at east jakarta and you look for bus to go to cianjur.
and you can stop at puncak or cipanas. the price is cheap. in puncak you can visit kota bunga, taman bunga nusantara, taman wisata matahari, taman safari, cibodas, cimory, etc. if you like hiking, you can go to gede mountain or pangrango mountain. the weather is cold.
There are plenty of local food places that can be ventured by adventurous travellers. The local foods are really good, healthy and hygienicly-prepared.
There are satay mandiri, satay madura, nasi padang restaurants that one should try.
View is nice, but traffic is terrible during peak season. Traffic flow is directed by police and opened directionally at predetermined hours.
So time your departure according to schedule.
If you want to get away from Jakarta with a short ride... Puncak is the best. Yet, better planning your trip carefully due to heavy traffic.
Recommended to arrive by 9AM and leave around 2PM
basically good place to enjoy the serenity if the hotel can provide more activities for the kids so parents can enjoy the serenity better
A great place to escape from the the daily routines at work, a place where you can breathe with fresh air and enjoy the Sundanese food.

Puncak is a great place for a family holiday. But i wouldn't go there in the weekends. The streets are very traffic.
