Dago | One Fine Morning



DAGO is a popular spot in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia, that covers Ir. H. Juanda street and the surrounding area. Tourists flock to this area for its trendy shops (especially factory outlets), boutiques, shopping malls, cafes, restaurants, and entertainment centers.

But this time I’ve come to Dago for its breezy early day, and witnessed some kind of inner beauty of it under the warmth of morning sun. No traffic jam to worry about, no hustle and bustle of touristic area I don’t like.  Big tall trees lining up the side of the roads. Old colonial houses and modern buildings standing peacefully side by side. I’ve also met some locals who were just starting or preparing their work routine.  They were very nice people with big smile and melodious Sundanese accent.

Needless to say that I’ve found my fine morning here in Dago.

Disgiovery yours!

With such fresh and cool air (especially in the morning), Dago is an ideal place to do some sports/outdoor activities.
Bike sharing has been existing in Dago since 2 years ago. It costs around 3 thousand rupiahs/hour for people to use the bike.

I really had no idea why someone would put the city mayor’s name on the garbage can, contrary to the fact that people love this man very much.
Bandung used to be known as the city of flowers. These flowers blooming along Dago street may represent a bit of the honorary title.
Bandung, emerging creative city. Yes, I believe it is.

Saya dulu ngekost deket Dago selama lebih dari 4 tahun dan tau bener perkembangannya mulai dari belum ada jalan layang Pasupati, pas Dukomsel masih kecil, pas masih ada Dago Plaza, dll. Paling enak memang jalan-jalan di Dago pagi-pagi. Udaranya masih cukup segerr.
