Anyone ever been to INDONESIA before?

Postby aprodianne » Wed Feb 20, 2008 7:41 am

Hello... I wonder whether some of the member of this forum have ever been to Indonesia before. If you have, where do you go in Indonesia? and how is your feeling about Indonesia?

Ok, me first.

Actually, I live in Jakarta (the capital of Indonesia). As a big city, Jakarta have a serious problem in traffic jam. We will experience the traffic jam wherever we go, even in the night we can get caught by the traffic jam, especially in weekend night. In weekdays, it's getting worst after office hours when all the people are on the way to their home after working. In spite of that, I love living in Jakarta. Everything we need, Jakarta have it :lol: There are a lot of big & modern shopping malls, restaurants, pubs, and other interesting place.

2008 is the year of VISIT INDONESIA. so, everybody... we are welcoming you to visit Indonesia.

hello there,

i have no doubts about the beauty of your country, and when it comes to beache Bali must be one of the most fantastic locations for sure, although its a bit damaged here across europe because of the dramatic terrorist attacks some years ago, i know that because some portuguese have died there by that time, i really hope that since there some security measure were taken in order to make it more safely for tourists. Anyway, i definitely would like to go there one day so im looking forward to know further things about your country :wink:

I have been to Bali many times, I do love it very much.
I suggest you should give it a try, but remember avoiding the month of Febuary, March, April and May. It's monsoon season.


Hello lisatang, thanks for dropping by to this thread.

Yes, I also love Bali :D . Usually, I've never loved the beaches before but when I visited Bali with my friends some years ago, I falled in love with the beach. Perhaps you're right not coming to Bali in February, because I rememberred when I visited Bali, it was February and not much visitors coming to the beach, such as Kuta, Dreamland, or Benoa. I just reallized that.

Do you have plan to visit Bali again in this year :) ?

Hello Rui, thanks for visiting this thread.

I'm so sorry for the bombing accident in Bali some years ago and caused a lot of tourists injured and even died there. When I visited Bali some years ago, I did visit the place where the bombing was happened. There is a monument there where the name of the victims died are stated.

After that accident, there is few of tourist would come there even domestic tourist wouldn't because of the fear, but the magic of the beauty in Bali attract the tourist to come again to Bali not long after that.

Now, Bali is back to normal again. So, when you plan to visit Bali :D ?

Hello all... I want to share my experience when I was travelling to Medan (North Sumatera province) early this month.

This is my first trip to go to Medan and I found so many interested thing there, such as good tasty foods & beautiful view. I took some pictures of the view. I will submit it here.

First, I attach the photo of TOBA Lake (Danau Toba in Indonesian language). I took that picture in the peak area in North Sumatera, called BRASTAGI. It will take about 3 hours from Brastagi to Toba Lake, while from Medan to Brastagi takes about 3 hours. It was so amazing when I saw that view.

o... you just went back to Surabaya? actually, i don't have plan go to surabaya in the near future. i will let you know if i'm in surabaya. how about you? when you come to jakarta again? don't forget to contact me if you're in jkt. actually, eventhough jakarta has a big problem with the traffic jam but i do love jakarta. especially, for shopping & hanging out and i think this is the periode when every shopping mall in jakarta organize big sale, such as Metro and others.

So, your twin's name is Nana? ya, usually parents give the name almost similar for their twin children :) .

Actually, so many places for hanging out in Jakarta. It's such a long time I never hang out again with my friends. I used to hang out at CJ Bar (I like it the most) in Hotel Mulia, sometimes I went to Kafe Tenda Semanggi & hang out at Comedy Cafe with my friends. If you get stress and want to relax, I think it's better idea if you go to Comedy Cafe, because all the waiter & waitress have imitation behaviour (latah in Indonesia) that can make you laugh very big. It's so funny.

hi Sunnypk... sorry I reply your posting late.

actually, I've ever passed beside the volcano, its name Bromo Montain, located in East Java of Indonesia. To reach the peak we have to walk on the sand area for about some kilometres & going up with the stairs till the peak. Yes, there is a stair to help the tourists reach the peak easily. Once you get on the peak, you can smell the sulphur very strong. Usually the tourists go there early in the morning so that they can see the sunrise.

hi linuzka, thanks for interesting in my country. actually, Indonesia has a special music called DANGDUT. That's music almost the same as India music but little bit different. At old time, that music was known by the music for the low class but now everybody can enjoy it. for the food, our food is known with the spicy food because our country riches with the spice. one of the food I posted it in the "Food & Drink" forum, titled: Chilli Sauce Crab from Indonesia. you may see it.
