Bandar Lampung is the capital and economic hub of Lampung province, Indonesia. It was called Tanjungkarang-Telukbetung, the names of the two major sections of the city, before being renamed in 1983. For immigrants and travelers from Java, the city is the entry point to Sumatra, especially before the construction of the major harbor at Bakauheni, just south of Bandar Lampung. Bandar Lampung is served by the domestic Radin Inten II Airport, with flights to Jakarta located northwester of the city. The city and South Lampung Regency are major transmigrasi recipients for those seeking respite from the crushing population densities and traffic nightmare of Jakarta, yet able to take advantage of proximity. As such, its population composition is far more cosmopolitan for a provincial capital of its size.The city's area is about 169.21 km², with a population of approximately 881,801 people.
