The La Oma Hotel & Restaurant is located in Lembang Area. Lembang is a cool mountainous town North of Bandung, Indonesia. It is popular with local tourists for its refreshing climate and the proximity to the Tangkuban Prahu volcano, Bandung's main tourist attraction.

Lembang itselft is a scruffy, busy place with a lot of traffic, street vendors and markets. Because the volcanic soil that makes up the rolling hills around this area is extremely fertile, horticultural and agricultural products are abundant. Corn, rambutan (hairy fruits), strawberries, orchids and bonsai trees can be found everywhere. On Sundays, Lembang is usually packed with families conducting Indonesia's single most favourite weekend activities: tasting snacks and local specialties.

Other favourites include sate kelinci (rabbit satay) and susu murni (fresh cowmilk). Furry rabbits can be found at street stalls everywhere, soon to be put on a stick and barbequed. Cow milk is sold at various places, the biggest being Kencana Lembang, where you can drink milk or yoghurt in cold converted cow stables and also see the process of milking the cows.

Near Lembang there are some forests and waterfalls that can be visited. The hot springs of Maribaya resort have been tapped into a public pool and form an ultimate relaxing pastime, although it can be quite crowded on weekends. (source: streetdirectory.com)
