Pasar Baru Bandung
 

Pasar Baru Trade Center (PBTC) was called Pasar Baru (Pasar Baru means 'the new market'). It was a traditional market that sold clothes and green groceries. PBTC is located on Oto Iskandardinata (Otista) Street, Bandung.

In 2004, Pasar Baru became Pasar Baru Trade Center,  a nice and complete shopping center. People loves shopping here. Bandung citizen and tourist come here to shop. According to a local newspaper, there are many tourist from Malaysia have been here.

In the weekend or holidays, of course, there are many visitors come here and make PBTC crowded. If you want to shop in more comfortable situation, please come visit in the weekdays. This photo was taken in Tuesday.

There are Sundanese cuisine (like 'nasi tutug oncom'), and Indian cuisine (like 'roti cane and curry') then some Indonesian food such as 'pempek rama', 'ayam goreng', and Chinese food.
