If you’re longing to have a short escape from the busy side of Jakarta, KepulauanSeribu or the Thousand Islands is the perfect place for you! There are 108 islands in KepulauanSeribu, located in the northern coast of Jakarta, but only 11 of those are inhabited and 36 may be used for recreation.
You can go island hopping and visit some of the most famous spots in KepulauanSeribu, or you can go swimming, snorkeling, diving, or just laying around all day long in these laid back islands. KepulauanSeribu’s Marine National Park is the heart of this archipelago. The park consists of a few islands, such as SemakDaun, GosongPramuka, KarangLebar, KarangBalikLayar and Kotok Island. There are around 19 diving spots with amazing underwater life in this area!
There are also the historical islands, which comprise of Onrust, Cipir, Kelor, and Bidadari Island. You can stroll around Onrust Island and stumble upon archaeological remains. The exotic Macan Island is an eco-friendly escape that you would not want to miss; and how can you not visit the famous Love Bridge on Tidung Island. The bridge is an iconic structure that connects TidungBesar with Tidung Kecil Island. You can ride a bicycle around the island as the friendly locals greet you. Pari Island is one of the most populated island, yet it still holds a hidden gem, such as the unsullied Perawan Beach, home to a diverse coral reefs and breathtaking marine scenery. Last but not least, is the Putri Island, located furthest from Jakarta. You can walk in an underwater tunnel, where you get to see the wonderful life of sea creatures!
Everywhere on the island is on walkable distance, but if you want to explore more, you can rent a bicycle. Take your time to interact with the curious local children and stop by at their homes to learn something that might be memorable for you to cherish.
First, you need to reach the nearest harbor in Jakarta, such as Marina Ancol, Kali Adem, or SundaKelapa. You can also depart from CituisRawaSaban and TanjungPasir Harbor in Banten. From there on, you can take a boat ride to KepulauanSeribu. If you opt for a more convenient and faster ride, just head straight to Marina Ancol to take a speedboat. You can also take a ferry from SundaKelapa. When traveling from Banten area, you can only hop to certain islands that have the shortest distance from the harbor. Ticket price for one way boat or ferry ride ranges from IDR 15,000 to IDR 125,000, while speedboat ride starts at IDR 110,000 to IDR 270,000. You can get to these harbors by private car, public transportations such as taxi, bus, or motorcycle taxi (ojek), depending on where you will depart from.

Romantic Bandung - The Paris Of Java!
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.
This picture taken by @furstset shows the 47-meter-tall majestic Prambanan Temple in Yogyakarta. This temple is easy to get to; simply take a bus from Tugu Train Station or Halte Malioboro 1. Dream big. Never stop believing. The Earth is gradually healing. We are waiting for the best time for you to come and visit us.

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. Soon you will be able to feel the tropical breeze touch your skin again. But right now, it’s time to rest for a while and distance ourselves from the outside world while the Earth heals. #StayatHome#TravelTomorrow
