During weekends, the road from Jakarta to Bandung can be jammed. Many people had warned us: it might take somewhere between 2 and 6 hours to make the 120 kilometer trip. Reason for the city’s popularity is not only its distinctly milder climate, but also the plethora of factory outlet stores that fill the city. People don’t go to see Tropical Modernity during weekends, but we did. MovingCities was lucky, and in the good hands of Xtrans, a “Point to point (shuttle)”, in itself an almost self-contradictory on-time shuttle service, connecting the capital with a creative city in the making.
