Around 270,000 people call Tasikmalaya in West Java home.
Jakarta, the national capital, is located 120 miles (193 kilometers) northwest of Tasikmalaya, while Bandung lies 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northwest.
The ecological havens surrounding Tasikmalaya allow visitors to see the birds, trees and plants that flourish in the area. To tour one of the main conservation preserves, head out to Alun-Alun Kota Tasik.
If you enjoy souvenir and fashion shopping, amble through the stores and stalls at the Mayasari Plaza. It is a vibrant place packed with fashion, accessories, fresh produce and great places to eat.
No mater how many attractions you’ve managed to cram into your schedule, no stay in Tasikmalaya is complete without a visit to the Masjid Agung Tasikmalaya.
