Rangko Cave in Labuan Bajo was the first place I went to as soon as I settled myself in a hostel. I arrived at Labuan Bajo a day before the 3-day tour and I had the whole afternoon free with no agenda. A fellow hosteller told me to explore Rangko
These 11 waterfalls in Bali will add to the excitement when visiting the famed Island of the Gods. Whether they’re big or small, these waterfalls can surely delight your adventurous spirit. All of these waterfalls involve a bit of hiking, some are a bit exhausting and others are easy peasy.
These 6 incredible hikes will take your breath away. It did to me and I could still remember how these hikes changed me as a traveler. I was never a fan of hiking, especially when the scorching sun is unforgivable. But I learned to adapt to harsh weather conditions and
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,
Sailing Komodo Islands from Labuan Bajo for 3 days and 2 nights was something you’ve got to do when visiting Indonesia. You won’t just have so much fun but you’ve got to see a few of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands. You’ll be able to frolic at the famed pink beach, hike
Pura Lempuyang (or Lempuyang Temple) is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Bali. It is also one of the oldest and holiest Hindu temples worth going to when traveling to this tropical island. This sacred temple is two hours drive away from Canggu (during a pandemic). The picturesque
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,
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
Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is really beautiful. I mean, it won’t be called Jatiluwih if it’s not really stunning, right? I was told that “jati” means real, and “luwih” translates as beautiful or good. You see, Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You might wonder why but when
Yes, Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida is your ultimate hiking trail down to the white beach. That is, I assume, if you are into a treacherous hike and reward yourself by frolicking in the white sandy beach and the turquoise salty water. Perhaps, you’ve seen this beach on many tourism
This temple in Chinatown Jakarta is worth exploring. The locals call it Glodok which is also the name of the district where it belongs to. The compound has three (according to my count) under the same name – and you can see all of them in one visit. There’s no
Museum Prasasti in Jakarta is, perhaps, the weirdest museums I’ve been to in my entire life! It’s a necropolis! it’s a former cemetery built by the Dutch in 1795 for the aristocrats of their own kind. It is the oldest public cemetery in Jakarta and, perhaps, one of the oldest
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.
The National Museum in Jakarta has more than a hundred thousand relics coming from different parts of the country. This museum is a must-visit if you want to know Indonesia’s cultural history. I have one word to say – impressive! And I have no doubt that this is the country’s
Visiting Jakarta National Monument is where you should start to get to know Indonesia’s capital city. You’re not only visiting the monument but also seeing Jakarta’s skyline from the tower deck. Yes, the tower is The National Monument! It’s a symbol of the country’s struggle for independence. For the locals,
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
