Jalak Harupat Stadium, Soreang
This stadium is really out in the boonies. Surrounded by mountains and paddy fields it is perhaps the most scenically located stadium certainly in Java.
Despite it's rural location, Soreang is little more than an overgrown village, the stadium is one of the best in the country and has staged Liga play off finals and internationals like Myanmar v Cambodia during last year's AFF Cup.
This season three domestic sides use it as their home base. IPL side Persikab can truly call this their home ground despite it being way too big for their needs. Pelita Jaya have also taken to using it, these pictures were taken from their home game against Persita, and so have local glamour club Persib.
From Bandung you could take an angkot or mini bus but why bother? Hire a car or borrow a taxi for a few hours and enjoy the rural scenery but don't drive yourself. Motorcycles come at you from all angles, it's like that old arcade game Asteroids!
