"I do not like a drop off, as it spends a positive space, as there are a few malls in Bandung they do not provide land to drop off," he said.
Mayor recommends markets in Bandung such as Old Marketplace Madrid Cafe and San Miguel Market in Europe, where the greengrocer could adjacent to the cafe, but it does not interfere with each other because there is a clean condition.
