Worth a visit but journey can be real long if you go during peak. We didn't stay long as it turned foggy soon after we arrived.
Great experience for my kiddies to see an active volcano at arms length, with sulphur pools and spewing gas, and being able to drive all the way up (other volcanoes you have to walk to the crater). pity about the touristy market place atmosphere.

Liked: One can get up close and personal with an active volcano! Disliked: A lot of people peddling their wares and being very pushy about it - they'll follow you around while you're trying to savour the moment.

Exposed children to explore the volcano and surrounding.the hawkers are following are disturbing.just ignore and the smells get ready with mask and clean up your face after visit.
We visited the Tangkuban Perahu and was captivated with the view and scenery. It was a wonderful sight and a breathtaking adventure. A very good experience and a must to visit for those who have not seen an active volcano.
