Bandung or Surabaya??? Coming from Sumatra for a lil extra on my adventure. what's there to do in and near each city? Bandung?? Surabaya??
Geografically, Bandung is the nearest city from Sumatra & Jakarta. Surabaya is the farthest and Jogja is in between. Bandung is surrounded by mountain, so it's colder than Jogja or Surabaya. My suggestions for itineraries in those cities are : Bandung : - Angklung Mang Udjo, West Java traditional music - Tangkuban Perahu, located near Lembang area - north Bandung, famous for its crater - Kawah Putih (White Crater), found by Y Franz W Junghuhn, south Bandung Surabaya : - Bromo mountain area, where Tengger tribe live. The location is near Malang city, outside Surabaya. Beuatiful for its sunset. - Kawah Ijen ( Ijen crater) - Culture attraction : Reog Ponorogo Jogja : - Borobudur and Prambanan temple - Losari plantation - Jogja King will marry his daugther on 16-18 Oct, there will be many cultural attraction, but the city will also very crowded - Wayang museum If i may suggest, looks like Bandung is more suitable if you only have few days left. Places mentioned above for Surabaya is quite scaterred and far from each other, but it's worth it if you get plenty times. Jogja will be very crowded because of the royal wedding. And you should try the culinary experience in whatever city that you go. over 8 years ago

There are many exciting places and activities that you can do, but all depend on your interest. What Siti suggested is one of good options in North Sumatra. You can also explore Medan city for it's culinary, melting pot culture. After that, you can go down to West Sumatra province, famous for Ngarai Sianok, beautiful mountain area and explore Padang city.
