You can not use cantik for a dress; it's only used for people. 'Indah' is also the incorrect word - used for landscapes. The correct word in this context is 'bagus'.

'indah' can be used generally for things, not just landscapes, while 'bagus' is more towards good, or okay.

Oh and one thing, usually indah have a feminine connotation

Maybe this should be cantik rather than indah

What is the difference between indah and tampan?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/atomic.bazza

Indah is for things like landscapes, tampan is for men and cantik is for women
