Spend the Weekend in Ancol, North Jakarta

Spend the Weekend in Ancol, North Jakarta

My best friend this time I will discuss what is good about Ancol or known as the Ancol Dream Park. Come see the following:

Ancol is a kelurahan in Pademangan sub-district, North Jakarta. This village has a postal code 14430. The Ancol village has a population of 18,055 people and an area of ​​577.28 Ha km2.

This village is bordered by the Java Sea in the north, the Java Sea in the east, Sunda Kelapa in the west, and the Tiram River in the south.

Ancol means rich boiling soil. In the past, when the sea was tide brackish water the time Ancol turned to land flooded the surrounding land so that it felt salty. Naturally, when Dutch VOCs referred to the area as Zoutelande. The salty land that was also given to the fort was built there in 1656 (De Haan 1935: 103 – 104).

To connect the city of Batavia, which at that time was fortified with these strongholds, it was previously made a canal, the Ancol Canal, which until now can still be navigated by boat. Then a road that was parallel to the canal was built.

Making canals, roads and fortifications there, because they are considered strategic within the framework of the defense of the city of Batavia. The strategic nature of the Ancol area seems to have been felt at a time when Islam began to spread in the coastal areas of the Kingdom of Sunda. In Koropak 406, Carita Parahiyangan, Ancol was mentioned as one of the battlefields in addition to Kalapa Tanjung Wahanten (Banten) and other places during the reign of Syria (1521-1535).

Many things you need to know about in Ancol, there is a vehicle called Dufan or known as Dunia Fantasi, not only visited by children but teenagers and even adults also join Dufan’s excitement. Well this time we discuss about the outside of Dufan aka Ancol, friend.

Who is not familiar with Ancol, Ancol is a tourist place that is often visited by local and non-local tourists and even abroad. Not only made a family weekend tourist destination, a gathering place with friends, coworkers or a grand reunion of true singers. But Ancol was also visited for Praweeding, a friend like yesterday’s artist, just call Mas Vicky Prasetyo. But don’t be insecure ordinary people can also celebrate praweeding here.

In Ancol, if a friend goes by a private vehicle, either a motorbike or a car to park, friends will surely meet first this time here. Yup dinosaur sculptures made through woven from dried coconut leaves are best friends. Pretty creative and interesting to visit.

Arriving at the parking lot, friends will all board the bus area and it is free, all friends, in Ancol there are many interesting and good places to be used as photo spots using backgrounds such as beaches, buildings etc.

Still in the Ancol Zone outside the context of Dufan’s review, all friends can also ride Cabel Park, all of which are exciting.

Gili Labak, Small Island in Southeast Madura

Gili Labak, Small Island in Southeast Madura

In recent years Madurese tourism has begun to develop, one of which is Gili Labak and Gili Genting. The distance of these two islands is close together. These small islands may only be in the form of dots on the map, small in size. The island which has an area of ​​5 ha is located in the Southeast of Madura Island. In May 2017 I and my six friends visited this island. We are interested in the beautiful underwater tourism.

We use travel agent services to get there. It is not difficult to get travel agents who provide delivery services and tours to Gili Labak because there are already many, the price is not so expensive, only about two hundred thousand. The gathering points are usually at Gubeng Baru Station and Purbaya Terminal.

Because I and my friends left for Surabaya by train, we took a gathering point at Gubeng Baru Station. We used the last train to Surabaya and arrived at Gubeng Baru Station at 23.15 WIB. We met with other participants and left for Sumenep at 00.30 WIB. Our tour group did not only consist of domestic tourists, but also many foreign tourists.

The Sumenep Surabaya trip takes around 3 hours. We stopped to rest and clean up in a house that was already provided for the tour participants. After morning prayers we leave for the port. We boarded a barge with the initial destination of Gili Genting. It didn’t take long to reach Gili Genting just half an hour from the port.

We were given only one and a half hours on Gili Genting. After breakfast at a beachside warung, we can play water on the beach. Besides playing water, you can also play swings located on the beach. Many Instagramable photo spots installed on the beach.

After that we headed to the main destination, Gili Labak. The journey from Gili Genting to Gili Labak is longer than from the port to Gili Genting. There are about one more hour. Some of us even fell asleep on the ship.

The initial appearance of Gili Labak is a soft white sand of wheat flour combined with a mixture of blue and turquoise sea water. No need to use footwear to walk along the beach because the sand won’t hurt your feet. And what’s worse is we are on Private Island. Because there was only our group of twenty children and local residents of Gili Labak.

Our group was divided into two, some of the other snorkeling were free on the island. I chose to go around the island first snorkeling. It only takes 30 minutes to go around the island. After walking around I relax in the only shop on the island.

It was my turn and friends to snorkel. We were ushered into the middle of the ocean, lined with snorkels and frog shoes. Before going down to the water we were given a tour guide direction. After that, one by one it descends to the water.

The sea water is clear and the waves are calm, it is very suitable for snorkeling. Because it is still relatively new tourism, there are still many new coral reefs being planted. Even so many groups of small fish swimming around us. We were given a small bottle containing pieces of bread mixed with water to feed the fish. And sure enough once I spray it, the fish swarm over me.

It’s great to swim with the fish on Gili Labak. Feeling tired because the work was destroyed when I was here. For those of you who are looking for a place to escape from the urban atmosphere, please pull it out here.

Your Trip Down Under

Your Trip Down Under

Travelling overseas is so exciting, planning the trip, booking the airline tickets and accommodation, and packing the suitcase. However one thing everyone gets confused about is how to stay in touch with family and friends back home. Now I am not talking about post cards, I am talking about your mobile phone and what options are available to you when you visit Australia.

Australia has 3 main telecommunication carriers and then tens of service providers. The carriers are “Telstra” (biggest), which is also a listed Australian company, 50% Government owned. Then there is Optus, which is the second largest telecommunications company in Australia. The third carrier is Vodafone/Hutchison, a new entity formed after the merger of Vodafone Australia and 3 Mobile.

Between these three carriers, they own the airwaves so to speak. They control most of the 3G access as well.

Travelling to Australia and setting up your mobile phone is relatively easy but it’s not something that you can necessarily do from the US (unless your travel agent can sell you an international roaming sim card). You have to wait until you arrive in Australia.

First of all, what you need is an unlocked mobile phone, which means you can swap or add a sim card when you get here. To help you decide which sim card to purchase, compare the prepaid mobile offers available and see what suits your budget and spending patterns. It’s simple with several online services available. Some also offer forums and free chat support should you need additional assistance.

So once you arrive, you need to get your hands on the sim card of choice. Unfortunately most prepaid mobile providers will not mail a sim card overseas. Not sure why but they simply don’t. So you can either have it sent to a friend who lives locally (Australia), or you can buy it when you arrive. The second option is the easiest. Most prepaid sim cards can be purchased from the airport when you arrive or any convenience store.

Here are a few tips:

Lombok, Bali, Jogja, Taste of Tourism Is Different

Lombok, Bali, Jogja, Taste of Tourism Is Different

Traveling is a way for many people to unwind from a routine that is enough to drain their mind and energy. But for me, traveling is not just a walk. Traveling is my way to explore a new world, with a variety of diversity that continues to make me want to continue to explore other tours. Here I will tell you how diverse Tourism is in the land of Mother Earth, with various differences that we will continue to respect.

I started from my birthplace, Yogyakarta Special Region. The province is known for its thick culture and friendly people and full of manners. Even in terms of tourism, this province cannot be underestimated. Starting from mountain tourism, sea, forest, to modern tourism, everything is here. I started from the north side we could find Mount Merapi which stood firm. For those who like to climb the mountain this is a fun challenge but still have to maintain the manners and cleanliness of the environment during the climb. Then if we go down to the city center we can find the Yogyakarta Palace which still stands firm.

Where we know Yogyakarta is a province where the governor’s position is still filled with royal families, the Sultan. Here we can see the history of the Kraton and its role for the NKRI. Then we move up to the east there are many beautiful beaches in Gunungkidul Regency. There are many beaches with white sand and even some offer services in the form of snorkeling, but still need to be careful because we know the sea on the south side has strong waves.

Along the way from the city center to the coastal area we have also been presented with various sights ranging from cliffs, mountains and traditional markets. Then we jump on the west side of the Kulonprogo area where the area still looks natural. There are mangrove forests that are ready to be traced, there are also many shrimp ponds around the forest that we can learn about how the process works. The district also provides various beaches, tea gardens to reservoirs. The last one we go to the south with a variety of culinary and tourism.

Available cuisines are from klathak satay with sweet soy sauce to savory ingkung chicken. We have also provided the tourists with Parangtritis beach which is so famous for its Queen of South myths, the Parangkusumo sandbank which is the only sandbank in Indonesia.

Then in 2018 I had lived for three months in Bali, an area known for its tourism which is already well-known internationally. Although only for three months, but I tried to use that time to enjoy the tourism there. Starting from the famous southern side of Kutanya beach, we can find a variety of local crafts with tours that are still thick with their customs.

In this area we can find a lot of foreign tourists on vacation in Bali. Turning to the east there is a Bali Zoo that offers tours of fauna and flora in different ways, very suitable for children’s tours. Spinning again to the north side there is Lovina beach which provides attractions so that we can see dolphins at close range, but still have to be careful because we are in the ocean. Lastly on the west side we can find traditional villages that contain a mixture of customs between Islam, Hinduism and others that are mutually tolerant. Not to forget also Mount Agung which still stands firm until now.

Besides that I have worked on the island of Lombok for 6 months in the field of tourism, a field that has definitely become my passion. This island also has different tourist characteristics with the two previous regions. On this island the touch of Islam is very strong, seen from several mosques ranging from the Bayan Beleq Ancient Mosque to the modern ones, the Islamic Center Mosque in Lombok.

The island also has Mount Rinjani which stands as an icon of this island. For animal lovers, this island has Lombok Elephant Park which is suitable for family tourism. As for the beach, Lombok also has a beautiful Kuta beach. As well as some unique beaches such as the Pink beach with its pink sand and Batu Payung beach with its icon Batu Payung. For those who want to play water but do not want to go to the beach, we can go to Gunung Kelambu waterfall which offers views during the trip. Not to forget, Lombok also has a variety of beautiful woven fabrics.

That is a bit of my article that contains some of the tours that are on the emerald equator, I’m sure there are more tours that are far more beautiful. But as good tourists we must take care of cleanliness and not damage what already exists. Thank you to the reader, greetings from me.
