Train from Jakarta to Bandung

The train from Jakarta to Bandung was an easy affair.

The Argo Parahyangan train cost IDR 120,000 one way (~RM38). Has comfortable reclining seats, separated into first and second class seatings and comes with a kitchen cart selling Indonesian bento sets with drinks.

The whole journey takes 3 hours from Jakarta to Bandung and you get to enjoy the scenic views across West Java. Both cities have Uber services so travelling to and from train stations are not a problem for the intentional travellers, so long you have data on your mobile devices.
