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.

  1. Hello. What`s the type of the room you featured on the 3rd photo? This looks like a nice hotel. The interior design can make guests feel cozy.

  2. This looks like a place to go in QC. The rooms are spacious and its located near schools and major establishments.

  3. I don't feel very safe in QC although in fairness, I've never been mugged or anything there considering the number of years we've played in many different bars and restos there. I don't know, maybe it's because the roads seem too wide and it's like there are too many public roads. But yeah, my dad went to office there until he retired. :)

  4. I know Sequioa Hotel mainly because of Ombu Restaurant. It is a very good restaurant with good food quality and service.

  5. The hotel looks clean and comfortable and it appears to be in a good location for all amenities.

  6. I like this kind of hotel as it's fuss free and has everything one will need for a short staycation! Will love to review them when I visit Philippines!
