Serang is the capital of Banten Province which formerly the administrative center of the broader Serang Regency, when Banten was still part of West Java. Serang is the center of the provincial government and business activities, and also the gate to some of the most spellbinding wonders of Banten that include the Ujung Kulon National Park, the Tanjung Lesung Resort, Sawarna Beach, and a whole lot more.
Serang was also known as the seat of the once-thriving Islamic Banten Sultanate and was becoming a prominent trading center in Southeast Asia. Today, its glorious past still radiate from the site of the old capital known today as the Old Banten Complex. Among those still preserved in its authentic colonial architecture is the Pendopo Gubernur Banten (The Governor's Office of Banten).
Another historical account is the Port of Karangantu. The port was once abuzz with merchant ships from China, Arabia, Turkey, and other countries that regularly called on this port. Today, although the port has been reduced to just a small fishing town, nonetheless, it is the gateway to some of the most fascinating islands off the coast of Banten for those who enjoy fishing, snorkeling, and diving.
Situated about 90 km west from the capital city of Jakarta, Serang can be reached by a little over 2 hours drive on the Jakarta-Merak Toll Road. While the most convenient way to reach the city is by rental car, you can also take public buses to form Jakarta's Kalideres Bus Station. Alternatively, you can also take the Train from Jakarta’s Tanah Abang Station and Kota Station to Serang Station. The route that passes Serang is served by Banten Express from Jakarta Kota station, the Patas Merak from Tanah Abang Station, and the Kalimaya Train also from Tanah Abang Station.

Well, I just love Bali so much, and we fell in love with the culture, people, the food. Everything was just amazing. I feel like in Bali, you can find serenity anywhere, literally. It's our favorite place that we've been to on our entire trip.
Literally translated as "the boiling lake", Kelimutu has three craters that apparently change colors and alternating between green, red, and blue which always independent of one another. Located in Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, you can take public transportation from Moni, the closest small town, to get to the parking lot before Kelimutu’s peak. From there, hike to see the otherworldly spectacle from the top of the world.

Covered by thin mist all over the village, Wae Rebo in Flores, East Nusa Tenggara is deservingly holding the title "the town above the clouds". Reach this truly fascinating traditional village from Labuan Bajo Airport through Ruteng City and then proceed to Denge Village before trekking for 4 hours to Wae Rebo.
Stood over 2,329 meters above the sea level and situated 35 kilometers away from the city of Malang, Mount Bromo might not be the tallest mountain in the entire Java, but it sure delivers an otherworldly spectacle. Climbing to the summit takes about 20-30 minutes depending on how quickly you can haul yourself up the sandy slope. Dare to try the challenging experience?

Let this picture from @sashajuliard virtually transport you to Kenawa Island, West Nusa Tenggara while you keep lying in your bed and #StayatHome. Don’t worry.
