Padar Island – An Incredible Island in Indonesia

Padar Island is one of the more than 17,000 islands in Indonesia. I’d say that it’s one of those views that you have to see, to believe it! Describing it as incredible is somewhat short of an adjective to fully express the feeling the first time I saw it. Man,

Ulun Danu Beratan Temple in Bedugul – The Floating Temple

Pura Ulun Danu Beratan Temple in Bedugul, in the highlands of Bali, gains its monicker as the “Floating Temple” as it is on the edge of Lake Beratan. However, the temple is not literally floating on the lake. It depends on where you stand, the temple, at a far distance,

Broken Beach in Nusa Penida – Is it Really Broken?

The Broken Beach in Nusa Penida is one of the most-visited tourist attractions on the small island, next to Bali. But is it really broken? When I saw it personally, I couldn’t figure out why they call it as such. Nothing there is broken. If you know why let me

Museum Prasasti is Not Your Ordinary Museum in Jakarta

Wayang Museum – A Culture of Puppetry on Display

Wayang Museum is one of the unique museums I’ve been to in my entire travels. It’s not your ordinary museum where European paintings and statues are on display. You won’t even see a single local/Indonesian painting in here. This museum dedicates itself to showing the art of Javan wayang puppetry.

Diamond Beach on Nusa Penida Island is Dangerously Beautiful

The Diamond Beach on Nusa Penida Island is dangerously beautiful (or beautifully dangerous?). It was the first beach we visited on the island and we couldn’t help but fall in love with it. It was love at first sight, I’d say. From the top, the views are truly mesmerizing. And

Tukad Cepung Waterfall in Bali – The Most Dramatic of All

Tukad Cepung Waterfall in Bali is the most dramatic of all waterfalls I’ve been to. It’s quite a ride from Canggu to the waterfall on a narrow, zigzaggy road. But, when you arrive, it’s all worth whatever trouble you have on the way. Promise! How much? You need to pay
