need more time to explore Tasikmalaya, not enough for 1 day stay, because many places of interest are waiting to be visited
Tasikmalaya is good city, people area very good and pleasant, but can't found nightlife activity in this city because people area very fanatic in their releigion
Tasikmalaya is a city with a strong moslem society. It's common to see the Arabic scripts in Tasikmalaya.
So please wear modest clothes everywhere in Tasik, shirts with sleeve and pants/skirts below knee. Mini-shorts/tank-tops is a big no-no. If you like embroidery, Tasikmalaya (or in short: Tasik) is famous of it. Try to buy Tasik umbrella as well, made of paper and beautiful painted. If you're lucky enough, you can find the Umbrella with colorful embroidery. Tasik is famous of wood craft as well. If you have time and healthy, try to climb Galunggung, a beautiful volcano near Tasik. But please check the availability. It's still an active volcano! If you still have time, You may visit Kampung Naga (Serpent Village; although no serpent here :-))Kampung Naga is a traditional village that still upholds its ancient traditions.It will be an interesting experience for you who live in the modern lifestyle. To get in, better use a bus or rent a car from Bandung to see the nice scenery (but you might be trapped in the traffic jam in Nagreg & Malangbong, especially in the weekend).
the city is safe even if we are walking around in the night. there easy to find many kind of food even if in the midnight.
Tasikmalaya is a best city in West Java. The people are very friendly. And also it's cheap enough for food.
I go to some Kampung Naga. Kampung Naga is one place (kampung) it's in the middle of the town but they can stay make it like kampung... not become modern.. it is interting because they want to leave with nature so they do not use lamp on the night and there also no electricity.. they use a flaming torch.. it is a place we must go
Tasikmalaya is a small place. But there is many place we can go if we have time. Like gunung galunggung, kampung naga and many more
