Cirebon is located right on the border between the provinces of West Java and Central Java on the northern coastal plains of Java. What makes Cirebon so interesting is its multi-national acculturation; Sundanese and Javanese mixture with Chinese, Indian, Arab, and European. The palace buildings and Islamic graves are decorated with old Ming porcelain plates, its Batik art has strong Chinese influences, while its mosques have strong Arabian influences.
A Port Full of Historical Experiences
Cirebon was once a part of powerful kingdoms on Java’s north coast which consisted of Banten (once known as Bantam) in the west, to Semarang, Demak, Kudus in Central Java, all the way to Tuban in East Java. This swathe of coastline was known as Daerah Pesisir. Known as Pantura nowadays, the region has become a main commercial arterial busy road until today. As the fourth-largest city on Java’s north coast after Jakarta, Surabaya, and Semarang, Cirebon’s industry and trade are thriving. A visit to Cirebon will take you back to 16th-century commercial life, with its palaces, batik shops, mosques, and crowded markets. Besides, another attraction of Cirebon lies in its rich cuisine.
Because of its central location, Cirebon is easily accessible by car, air, or train. There are two large railway stations in Cirebon. They are Kejaksan Station and Prujakan station. Cirebon also has a small airport known as Cakrabuana Airport, while the larger one, known as Kertajati Airport, is located not too far from the city, in Majalengka.
When traveling by car, please note that since this is a busy highway, you will encounter a lot of container trucks along the way.
If you want to travel by train, there are two available routes you can take. They are from Jakarta and Bandung. The route from Jakarta starts at Gambir Station in the east of the National Monument and ends at Kejaksan Station. Meanwhile, the route from Bandung starts at Bandung Station in Andir district and also ends at Kejaksan Station. Kejaksan Station itself is situated strategically in the heart of Cirebon. Some of the most popular destinations in Cirebon include Kasepuhan Palace and Trusmi Batik Village.

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.

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.
