Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

What to Expect in Kawah Putih?


Bandung Indonesia is the last leg of my 12-day Indonesia tour c/o the Tourism Ministry of Indonesia. Bandung is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia, about 180 km south-east of Jakarta. Before we head back to Jakarta, Kawah Putih is one of our last destination in Bandung. It is our second volcano to see during our 2 weeks stay in Indonesia. Kawah Putih (White Crater) is 50 km south of Bandung and is one of the most popular tourist attraction by the locals and especially for us foreigners. Since it opened to the public on 1987 - many tourists have been visiting this bluish crater. 

What can we expect in Kawah Putih?


1. Weather

Bandung's weather is like Tagaytay or Baguio in the Philippines so expect a bit colder temperature and sweater or jackets are advised to wear. 

2. Vendors

When you get to the main car park, you will see lots of food vendors, gift shops and some are selling blueberries and strawberries for an affordable price of less than 100PHP per small tray.

3. Multi-cab ride

Also, you have to take a multi-cab and will travel for 5 kilometers to get to the entrance of the crater and I enjoyed the 5-kilometer ride because of the cold breeze. 






4. Hassle-free drone flying area

I'm so excited to get to the crater so I can fly my DJI drone and flying drones here in Indonesia is hassle-free compared to the Philippines that I have to get a permit so I can fly my drone (well, not all parts of the PH actually). Congrats Gael (www.thepinaysolobackpacker.com) for flying your drone and not crashing it, lol. 





5. Strong Smell of Sulfur 

As a safety precaution - wear a mask whenever at the crater. 


6. Magnificent View

Tourist will really enjoy and appreciate the blue crater, huge rock formations around the crater and the greenery of the surroundings.



Enjoy watching my drone shot at Kawah Putih.

More info: Visitors need to pay 2.2USD / 103PHP for the entrance fee and multi-cab fare.

  3. Wooo... Playing with the drone should be fun. I heard from my friend that it takes a lot of practice for someone to navigate the drone properly without any shakiness!

  6. I wish the photos were bigger sis! It's hard to see when viewing in high-res monitor. Nonetheless, seemed you enjoy this sponsored trip! If I was to go to Indonesia, it'll definitely be Bali. Probably the safest of all cities that I know of in Indonesia :D

  8. Oooh what a nice trip. I've always thought Indonesia had a warmer climate than ours, but then again what do I know about geography and weather? How are the locals? What is it like? Would you recommend going to the crater with the kids? Will the mask make it safe for them with all the sulfur smell? Really interested. Thanks! :)

    1. Its safe to bring kids there. A simple surgical mask will do. Sulfur smell is not that strong as to compare to Mt. Ijen

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas. Batangas is a 2-hour drive from Manila and Bauan Batangas has white beach sand. La Thalia is a half hectare property that has a great beach front andrelaxing rooms - couple room & barkada room/family room, Pavillion that can accommodate 100 pax, restaurant, basketball court, table tennis, and water sports such as Jetski, Paddle Boat, Kayak and they also offer island tour where you and your group can have fish feeding and snorkeling at the same time.
