Braga Street


Have you been to Bandung, especially Jalan Braga / Braga Street? If you do, you will familiar with the photos that I will post here. Braga is one of my favourite streets/places in Bandung. It has a classic and antique impression. Because there are indeed many old buildings there that have become historical heritages they cannot be changed arbitrarily.


As I said before, because of the classic and antique impression it’s become an attraction to a lot of people including tourists. Every day a lot of people will visit this street just for a walk or to take some pictures. It becoming more crowded because a lot of cafes, restaurant, and place for hangout has been opened there.

This place is called Hangover. Now Hangover is a place for hangout and drinking some beers. But it was a normal cafe for people to eat ( right photo ). Yes, now in Braga a lot of cafes serve beer or alcoholic beverages for customers. That is another reason why a lot of people come to Braga these days.

I found those photos very interesting and colourful. It was taken outside an alley. That alley was the way to the residency of the citizens in Braga. I guess some of them sell a painting, open food stalls or other which I didn’t know in detail.

This man is one of the painters who sells his painting in Braga. Every day he will display all his paintings by hanging them on the building door which was always closed. And sometimes he will paint some of his paintings there. And he can draw a sketch of people if you wanted to.

Not only a cafe and restaurant, but you can also find some painting stores there with a lot of types of painting. You can take around to find your favourite one. But, if you didn’t want to buy any, you can just walk around to enjoy the view.

It’s always fun and enjoyable when to hang out in Braga. Even though sometimes it’s really crowded.

You also can find some traditional souvenirs such as a puppet from the woods with traditional dresses. And some antiques such as bikes or vases. They sell in-store at Braga or you can buy it on the sidewalk because there’s a little seller who sells souvenirs on sidewalks too.

While you there, you might be want to sit down on the bench and enjoy the warmth of the sun.
