Mentawai used to be paradise for surfer before earthquake and tsunami

mentawai wavePerhaps more famous Bali for foreign and domestic tourists, but for the surfers they know where the waves are challenging. Mentawai and Nias is a favorite for surfers because the waves are exotic. In Mentawai, surfing is usually done in Nyangnyang Island, Coral Majat, Masilok, Botik, and Mainuk. The peak tourist visit there in July and August because the height of waves in the Mentawai reaches 7 meters.
In addition, the island of Siberut in the Mentawai become one of the biosphere reserve by UNESCO so that its existence must be protected and kept away from exploitation. Exoticism of Siberut compounded by the four endemic Mentawai primates, namely simakobu or pig tail monkey (Simias concolor), bilou or dwarf siamang (Hylobates klosii), joja or Mentawai langur (Presbytis potenziani), and monkey Mentawai (Macaca pagensis).

However Mentawai now being sad, on October 25, 2010 at 9:42 pm, an earthquake with magnitude 7.2 has shaken the power of the Mentawai. 7.2 magnitude earthquake that caused the tsunami as high as 3 meters in Pagai Island. The earthquake and tsunami that flattened as if the coast in the Mentawai.

mentawai gempaVictims of the earthquake and tsunami in the Mentawai recorded more than 400 people died. Team evacuation difficulty doing evacuation victims and to distribute aid because of difficult terrain. Some aid distribution point has been done by land, air or sea, he said the distribution of which may pass through the sea using a ship KRI. Unfortunately the ship KRI can not be docked because of the sea in shallow coastal water due to the many Mentawai reef. So for the distribution of aid is done by relay from the ship KRI then transported by boat speedboat.
We hope our brothers there are fortitude, hopefully with this article many people know that our brothers in the Mentawai need help.

Borobudur closure due to volcanic ash

borobudur covered by volcano ashMount Merapi volcanic ash that fell like rain threatening complex of buildings in the world's largest Buddhist temple, Borobudur.

Some parts of the Borobudur temple was closed to the public so that the workers can clean white blanket of volcanic ash. Borobudur cleaning done since October 27, 2010, because of eruption of Mount Merapi on October 26, 2010. But on October 30, 2010, occurred eruption again that more terrible than the eruption on 26 October.
On October 29, the tourists are still able to enter the courtyard outside the temple, but has not been able to get into the gate. However, due to rumored that the eruption of Merapi is not maximized, and predicted there would be subsequent eruption, so the possibility of Borobudur will be closed for a long time.

Some archaeologists are concerned and worried because acidic substances contained in volcanic ash can accelerate the decay of stone, said Marsis Sutopo, head of the conservation office of the temple. We hope Borobudur will be fine, because Borobudur only one in this world.

For tourists who want to visit Borobudur do not be disappointed if not to witness the splendor and beauty of the temple of Borobudur. For convenience together and protect the world cultural heritage that is the masterpiece of Borobudur temple. 2 days ago I also plan to visit Borobodor to deliver tourists, because of the closure news Borobudur temple so we changed destinations to the Prambanan temple complex. Fortunately, tourists are not disappointed with the replacement of a tourist destination, for the comfort and safety. Have great for your traveling.

Ash rain occurred during about 22 minutes, it seemed rain ash reach till Bantul which is about 60 km from Merapi and the house where I live also feel the rain of volcanic ash. The house that I live close to UGM (Universitas Gadjah Mada) so its more near Merapi than Bantul to Merapi. The leaves, streets, courtyards and roof covered with white ash but not so thick, but it interfere the vision and breathing.

Street cofered by volcano ashAlong the Kali Urang street, the streets become white. Full with volcanic ash that covered the road Kaliurang, the ash is quite thick so it make difficult for vehicle users to accross there. People are encouraged to wear masks when going out, so their breathing is not disturbed. However vulcanic ash not only disrupt breathing, but also interfere with the view that not only masks is very need of the refugees victims of natural disasters of Mount Merapi, but also eye drops and food and other supplies. Eye drops is necessary considering the dust vulcanic make eyes painful.

After the eruption of Mount Merapi, two villages in Sleman Jogjakarta looks like a dead area. Kali Adem village is only about 5 kilometers from the peak of Merapi. Kinahrejo village, only 4 kilometers away. News of the result of bursts of hot clouds (wedus gembel) from the eruption of Mount Merapi, noted that the human victims who died as many as 30 people.

Caretaker is the person who won the trust to keep something and Mbah Maridjan is the one who was trusted by the Sultan to keep the mount Merapi. But after about 40 years served as caretaker of Mount Merapi, reported that on Tuesday (26/10/2010) Mbah Marijan found dead in a prostrate position. To identify the dead body in prostration is Mbah Marijan, it is necessary to research by a team of forensic because the bodies were no longer recognizable.

kinahrejoThe eruption of Mount Merapi this year has brought disorder to the village of Kali Adem and Kinahrejo, thick dust of fallen trees close, the ruins of homes, and as well as dozens of dead animals is pathetic. But we are citizens of Yogyakarta is still grateful for the time of the eruption occurred despite bursts of rain and the wind blew towards the south but to the west, so the city of Yogyakarta is located in the south of Mount Merapi are safe from exposure to volcanic ash. I live in Yogyakarta today, although the city of Yogyakarta quite far from Mount Merapi for my sensitive nose, I also felt uncomfortable to breathe, there is a burning sensation in my nose when breathing. But I am grateful, because the city of Yogyakarta is still in a safe condition. Thanks GOD.

Its always so fun when visit Borobudur temple

borobudurTwo days ago I visited Borobudur temple with my best friend. I've been many times to visit Borobudur, but I was never bored to visit there again. I am always happy when visiting Borobudur temple, especially with my best friends.
For those who visit Borobudur in first time, they will so enchanted because the architecture of Borobudur temple is beautiful, majestic and wonderful. The pictures that we taken on there was very good. Although we have take a lot of pictures there, but when we got home, we feel that we take very little picture. Lol .. because we really like being photographed (narcissistic).
My trip to Borobudur that time was very nice, although when we are there was rainy for 2 times but the weather is supposed to make us despair because shelter in Borobudur temple far enough. Luckily we brought an umbrella that time, so if you visit the Borobudur in the rainy season should bring an umbrella like us.

borobudurRemember the adage "Ready for umbrella before rains." But for those of you who do not carry an umbrella, you also can hire an umbrella there, the rental price I do not know because I've never rented an umbrella when visiting Borobudur. The function of umbrella when visit Borobudur not only protect you from rain, but also protects you from the hot sun, because normally the weather is very hot when in Borobudur. Of course, Borobudur is a building that made from pure natural stone, so its normal that the weather so hot on there. But the beauty of Borobudur can make us forget that the weather is hot, when the weather is slightly overcast but not foggy like the time we felt yesterday, definitely will make you feel convenience although you were at the top level of the temple or called "Arupadhatu" (which means do not form or intangible). Because the view from Arupadhatu very beautiful, from here you can also see a very famous Amanjiwo resorts, but the unique and majestic resorts are looks small because it is quite far from there.
I've visited Borobudur many times, but I still want to visit Borobudur again. Are you interested to visit it? Let's prove just how beautiful and magnificent of Borobudur the world's cultural heritage in Magelang, Indonesia. So if your trip to Yogyakarta, do not forget to visit the world cultural heritage, the temple of Borobudur, Prambanan, Ratu Boko, Sultan's Palace and other places around Yogyakarta. Have a wonderful holidays and do not forget to care the cleanliness of tourist places so will be always beautiful and comfortable, let's go around the world.

Enjoy Sunset on Ratu Boko

Ratu Boko is a name of a beautiful architecture the temple of King Boko (King Boko Palace). King Boko Palace was constructed during the reign of Rakai Panangkaran, descendant of Sailendra dynasty. The palace that initially was named Abhayagiri Vihara (that means a monastery on a peaceful hill) was built for seclusion purpose and to focus on spiritual life. This Palace was built by Buddhist but there are Hindu elements in it. This can be seen from the presence of Lingga and Yoni, Ganesha statue, and golden plate with the writing "Om Rudra ya namah swaha" on it as form of worship to Rudra as the other name of Shiva. The Hindu elements proved religious tolerance that is reflected in architectural works. In fact, Rakai Panangkaran who embraced Buddhism lived side by side with Hindu people.

This palace is located 196 meters above the sea level. The area of the palace as wide as 250,000 m2 is divided into four, namely center, west, southeast, and east parts. The center part consists of the main gateway, square, Combustion Temple, pond, square terrace and assembly hall. Meanwhile, the southeast part includes hall, platform, three temples, pond, and a complex for princess. The caves, Buddha effigy, and a pond (mysterious well) are in east part while the west part consists of hills only.

Because the location of King Boko Temple located in the hills, and scenery in the west is a city of Yogyakarta that flatland, the views of the sunset at King Boko Palace very often looked forward to the visitors, because the sunset at the King Boko Palace was very beautiful, majestic and enchantment, see it by yourself. Picture a long beside a few sunset photos in King Boko Palace which I get from the internet, is so lovely, isn't it?t

Watch the dolphins attraction, beautiful sunrise and sunset at Lovina beach, Bali

Love it .. I still remember that I ever promised to someone on to make a post about the beaches in Bali. And now I am interested in the beach of Lovina, Bali. Lovina Beach is the beach which is famous for dolphins attractions.

Lovina located on north of Bali tourist region, +2.5 hours from Kuta. Lovina is also a leading tourist area of Bali, because here the tourists can enjoy the natural atmosphere which is very different. Mountain landscapes that look very close to the beach make this area more attractive to visit.

Hotels, villas and other lodging types are also very much built here. In the morning, at sunrise, here we can watch the dolphins swimming on the ocean surface. If we want to see dolphins up close, we can rent fishing boats there, then not too far into the ocean we can already see hundreds of dolphins swimming in their habitat. Wow..so cool.
And if you sunset lovers, I think Lovina beach also give a different sunset scene. lol. Yah..As I know each beach have different sunset sensation. So dont forget to your gf, bf or your lovely family to visit Bali and dont forget to visit Lovina beach also. The most important dont forget to bring your camera to capture the best moment, best sunrise and best sunset with the hundred dolphins in Lovina beach.

The Glorious of Jogja Java Carnival 2010

Finally I had time to post about Jogja Java Carnival ....

Because of the success of Jogja Java Carnival in 2009, that make Jogja eager to hold a great carnival again. At this time the carnival theme is Harmony in the Night,it is held on October 16, 2010. Jogja Java Carnival aims to celebrate the anniversary of the city of Yogyakarta to-252.

Jogja Java Carnival was held on Malioboro street, starting from point zero to Inna Garuda hotel. The Carnival very lively, forming a cultural sequence that begins with a row of Ramayana ballet, then the ranks of other cultures. Participants of Jogja Java Carnival is derived from local, national and even international.

Jogja Java Carnival is lively, but there are still shortcomings. It is still a lack of coordination of the committee. So visitors who witnessed this event yet orderly rows, resulting in difficulty moving carnival participants. It's still understand because Jogja was still young in organizing cultural carnivals like that. What I can say, that carnival is great job...
:okay:

For tourists who were visiting Jogja this time, certainly feel so special because of the event of Jogja Java Carnival, so if you plan to vacation to Jogja next year, should your visit coincide with Jogja's anniversary so you can watch Jogja Java Carnival.
Stay passion for travel, Let's go around the world ...

Tour guide de Kraton (Yogyakarta Sultan's Palace)

After shopping in Malioboro, you must visit Kraton Yogyakarta also. Kraton (Palace) in Yogyakarta (Jogja), not as fancy as the palace in general. Kraton Jogja is a simple palace but highly respect of Javanese culture. For me, Yogyakarta palace is a unique palace. It's just that not all areas can we enter carelessly, when we visited the palace we could only look around.
Our main trip to the main palace where there is a throne hall of King and marquee which is the embryo of the University of Gadjah Mada (UGM). In the middle of the building between the king's throne hall and UGM there is a gate that looks like a small hall. Stand in the middle of this gate, then when you scream or clap your hands then the sound will bounce, the myth that there is a midpoint between Mount Merapi and the South Seas. But in my opinion, architect design the building that makes the sound can bounces.
Then the tour continues towards the palace where the king's residence, where you can watch dance performances, gamelan performance and macapat, also can see the white palace which have floors made of marble and decorated with lights cristal, golden palace ( just the painting color like gold so it is look very glamor), the king's collection like gifts from around the world that was already very old, the collection tells king's life story, a collection of paintings and batik collection. Many can be seen there, but it looks simple.
The next tour is the area outside the palace like a museum Sana Budaya, Museum Kereta, an Old Great Mosque architecture, and Taman Sari. In museum Sana Budaya, you can see many kind of puppet and if you like, you also can to see the puppet show. The puppet show held at the night, this show will be held for 2 hours. And at museum Kereta or carriage museum, you can see many old carriage that still can be use but you can't ride on it, and next to the bath of the king's daughter and mistress, it is called Taman Sari (Water castle).









According to the story, formerly Taman Sari is the area that surrounded by the lake so it is called water castle. But the area become a settlement for the servants for palace, so the lake was flattened (too bad ...). All you can see in the Taman Sari, which is an old pool that should not be used for the public, the former king rooms, and an old mosque that have good architecture (unlike the mosque in general). Then when night come, you also can visit the South Square to play masangan.
That my story when I become tour guide to Kraton, If you want to know more about the Kraton story, you can visit wikipedia or yogyes. I have been visit Kraton for many times but I still like to visit there again, lol.

Tour guide along Malioboro street

Malioboro MarketLet's get a walks. .. Anjieya this time will invite you to visit the city of Yogyakarta, namely to Malioboro st,Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Malioboro street is the most famous street in Yogyakarta (Jogja). Because Malioboro street is a shopping center, it is about 1km so that was one of recreation destination in Jogja.
When you walk in Malioboro street, do not just go for shopping. Because along Malioboro street and around many places you can visit. If you like to take a walk, would take a walk along the Malioboro is exciting. Our journey started from Hotel Ina Garuda headed to Sultan Palace of Yogyakarta. Options trip up to you: walk, ride tricycles or wagon ride.
From Ina Yogyakarta Hotel, we walked to the Malioboro Mall. Malioboro Mall is my favorite mall in Jogja, because the mall for me was not monotonous. In this mall you can taste the delicious donut that is "J. CO Donut" and buy an original Dagadu t-shirt and souvenirs. Dagadu t-shirt a famous shirt in Jogja because of the unique words on her jersey.
After the Malioboro Mall, you want to buy batik so many choices of batik and souvenir shops that classy example Danar Hadi (Solo), Keris, Margaria, etc. When you pass through the Mutiara(Perl) hotel, do not forget to stop by the mister who although blind but very intense to play Angklung(traditional music from bambo). If you like his play so give charity for him. He was a very loyal to play Angklung in front of the Mutiara Hotel. After the Mutiara hotel to enjoy the Angklung music concert, you can visit the tourist information center to ask about tourism in Yogyakarta. If you do not need to go to tourist centers, then you can go straight to Beringharjo market.
Malioboro MarketBeringharjo market is the largest traditional market in Yogyakarta. In Beringharjo you can buy batik and souvenirs. Because the market then you should be good at bargaining, if you do not like to bid then you can visit Mirota Batik. But for those not familiar, the smell of incense which became characteristic of Mirota will greatly disturbing your smelling.
Finished shopping let us travel history to the museum fort Vedeburg. The ticket to entrance Vedeburg fortress, it is very cheap. What you can see inside of Vedeburg fortress there are a diorama(maket) story of Indonesia's independence struggle. In front of the castle Vedeburg there is a large white building, the building was once the Istana Negara Indonesia (Indonesia white house) at the cabinet RIS. Well .. in front of the castle and Vedeburg fortress which is called point of zero kilometers and became a favorite in Malioboro street to spend the time and enjoy the scene of busy road.
Malioboro MarketFrom zero kilometer, you also can see Monuments of General Offensive 1 March, this monument quite crowded because it is often used as a festival, such as culinary festivals. Looking south, you will see a white building which has colonial architecture period. The building is a bank of BI, the post office and bank BNI, indeed it is a heritage building of Colonial period. To the south again is the square of Yogyakarta Palace and Malioboro tour ended and now we tour the Sultan palace.

Is easy and cheap to go to Prambanan Temple

prambananI live in Jogja (Yogyakarta) now, but I rarely even talk about Jogja. The topic of my post now, will talk "is cheap and easy to go to Prambanan temple". Yes it is. When you visit Jogja and you want to shop in Malioboro and also wanted the tour to Prambanan temple, and you do not have a personal vehicle to go to two places that then you can take a bus named TransJogja.
Transjogja in jogja identical to the bus which has a green color, these bus are not big as Busway bus in Jakarta but the bus is more convenient if compared with regular public bus. Bus ticket is also relatively cheap, and can be said to be very cheap. With the money of Rp 3,000, then you can have get around the city of Jogja.

transjogjatransjogja









So in a day you can visit the Prambanan Temple as well as Malioboro. We recommend you visit the Prambanan first then visit Malioboro. The reason usually you will feel want to take long time to enjoyed the beauty of the temples of Prambanan + you can also visit the temple of Queen Boko for free.
Tickets to enter the temples of Prambanan are indistinguishable to an Indonesian citizen Rp 15,000 but for foreign tourists will usually be more expensive 10x. Do not be fooled, it seems to apply in some places of tourism in Indonesia. Understandably, for foreign tourists to pay 10x more than the local tourist price of course was not expensive. hehehe.
