Trowulan - Former Capital City of Majapahit Kingdom (T) Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

Trowulan - Former Capital City of Majapahit Kingdom (T) by Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

The scattered sites are located in the town of Mojokerto, around 1.5 hrs drive from the city of Surabaya (East Java). Once could start from the Museum, to get the basic idea of the history of the Kingdom.

Being a huge fan of Indonesian History, these well preserved sites, on top of a good background from the museum guide, really worth the visit.

It is an easy full day trip from Surabaya.

Really recommended

The Old Town of Jakarta (Formerly old Batavia) and 4 Outlying Islands (Onrust, Kelor, Cipir dan Bidadari) (T) Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

The Old Town of Jakarta (Formerly old Batavia) and 4 Outlying Islands (Onrust, Kelor, Cipir dan Bidadari) (T) by Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

The Old Town of Jakarta/Old Batavia comprises many sites and covers quite large area. The "common" Old Jakarta is very easy to access and a very common place to hang around for youngsters and family during the weekend. The atmosphere can be very crowded but uniquely alive with thick senses of "Old Batavia" all around.

The outlying islands are also easy to access with day tour packages, departing from a fish market, nowhere near the 'common' Old Town. Within those islands, what's left of former barracks, hospitals, towers, etc are everywhere to be seen and experience.

It's a nice site (or should I say, sites) to be on the list. Each of the buildings and islands embraces universal values that makes what's Jakarta today, how it was, and what could have been different.

Semarang Old Town (T) Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

Semarang Old Town (T) by Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

Semarang is the capital city of Central Java, and it is not hard to get there from Jakarta. A 40 mins flight or 6 hrs train ride will get you to there.

The location of the Kota Lama (Old Town) is not far and quite central. The area covered is not that huge and some buildings worth seeing is not that many as well.

I have to say that some serious things need to be done in order to preserve the area.

The one that is the icon of the Old Town, and also the icon of Semarang City itself is the Church (Gereja Blendhuk) in the central of the area. It is still operating, I even went there for a Sunday mass.

Bunaken National Park (T) Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

Bunaken National Park (T) by Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

Bunaken National Park is located in the Northern Part of Sulawesi (Celebes) island in Indonesia. It takes around 3 hrs flight from Jakarta (going east) to Manado city, and then some short trip to the port. You need to take a boat to get to the islands and/or snorkeling/diving sites.

The National Park consists of islands where people can do embark to have lunch, have some water sports, rent snorkeling and diving equipments. Where the highlights of this NP is the snorkeling and diving itself.

The maritime beauty of this Eastern part of Indonesia is unquestionable and a must when you go to Manado.

Bali Subak system Elisabeth Fransisca Situmorang

Subak (irrigation) system in Bali is not a mere irrigation system. The water that irrigates the paddy fields comes from the water temple surrounded by the paddy fields.

While water holds a spiritual meaning for Balinesse, to purify, cleansing, to become a better being.... hence the whole Subak system has the same spiritual meaning as a whole.

The long awaited inscription for Bali into the WHS has finaly come. This place is arguably one of the most wonderful places ever existed. Where you could feel different while in different part of the island... and one couldnt get enough of Bali for sure..
