Javanese is the largest minority, from nearby province and the eastern part of Java. Notable minorities include Chinese Indonesians, Indian Indonesians, and Korean Indonesians.
The city lies in a river basin surrounded by volcanic mountains, and due to its elevation, the climate in Bandung is cooler than most Indonesian cities and can be classified as humid; the average temperature is 23.6 °C throughout the year which is why it has served for popular weekend-break destination for people living in Jakarta. Bandung's topography provides a good natural defense system, which was the primary reason for the Dutch East Indies government's plan to move the colony capital from Batavia to Bandung.
During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Dutch East Indies Company (VOC) opened plantations in the Bandung area. In 1880, the first major railroad between Batavia and Bandung was built, boosting light industry in Bandung. After Indonesian independence on 1945 onwards, the city experienced a rapid development and urbanization that has transformed Bandung from idyllic town into a dense 16500 people/km2 metropolitan area, a living space for over 2 million people. Natural resources have been exploited excessively, particularly in the conversions of protected upland area into highland villa and real estates.
