Bandung Regency (Kabupaten Bandung) is an administrative landlocked regency located to the south, southeast, east and northeast of the city of Bandung. The northern parts of the Bandung Regency are effectively part of the Bandung Metropolitan Area (technically the whole of the Regency is within the Metropolitan Area), with the southern third being less urbanized and jutting upwards from the Valley, though not as sharply as the mountain range to the immediate north of Bandung. The Regency is part of the Indonesian province of West Java, and is situated about 75 miles southeast of Jakarta. The town of Soreang is the regency seat.

The Regency was reduced in size as first Cimahi City (which became autonomous) and then West Bandung Regency were split off from the regency. In the 2010 Census, the population of the residual area reached 3,178,543 after final adjustments,[2] while the 2020 Census increased the total to 3,623,790;[3] the official estimate as at mid 2021 was 3,666,156,[4] for an average density of roughly 2,080 per square kilometre. It is the second most populous (after Bogor Regency) of the regencies of Indonesia.

Administration[edit]

Bandung Regency current regent is Dadang Supriatna along with Sahrul Gunawan as vice regent.

Nagreg Ring Road[edit]

To ease traffic jams in the Nagreg hill area close to Bandung, in 2011 the government completed part of the Nagreg ring road (5.4 km in length, 10 degrees in steepness, with a 400 meters semi-tunnel) at a cost of Rp.90 billion (around $US 10.6 million). The ring road will serve vehicles from travelling from south to north and can be used during Eid ul-Fitr 2011. Traffic from north to south will still use the old road.[9]
