Kenjeran Park: Mainstream yet photogenic

Another tourist attraction in Surabaya, Kenjeran Park. Two times I visited this place, I found it very crowded, full of families spent time together, young people having a date, some tourist go here and there. Not really good, but impressive enough for this place is quite photogenic. You can walk from one point to another, but it’s better if you can come with a rental car.

A weekend to Kediri and Malang

So, my mom and I had a short escape to Kediri and Malang last May. This is the itinerary. We rented a car from/to Surabaya and driver to help us run our itinerary.

Day 1

We drove early morning to Kediri to visit Goa Maria Pohsarang. It should have taken 3 hours, but there were a carnival, so we reached our destination after more or less 4.5 hours.

From there, we bought some souvenirs, met my old schoolmate, and got our lunch in the city. Around 3 pm, we headed to Batu. Too bad, we encountered a carnival so we arrived late at Museum Angkut and Batu Night Spectacular. We also drive across the main hall of Batu City before we checked-in to our guesthouse, Adam’s Apple.

Day 2

The following morning, we went to Omah Kayu Paralayang. The location was hardly to reach by the car. The road was very steep and narrow. Lucky we had a very good driver. When we came there, they closed some areas for film shooting. Anyway, we had a good time there.

That’s my mom conquered the world :p

From there, we drove again to Malang city. During the journey, we enjoyed the time in a traditional market, tasting Cwie Mie from the origin place, etc.

In Malang, we paid a visit to the main hall of the city, enjoyed some desserts in Toko Oen, and also had our lunch at Bakso President.

On our way back to Surabaya, our driver stopped by at Tretes, another famous highland in East Java for us to see around. He also suggested us to try Ote-ote and do some shopping at Tanggulangin, a well-known place for its leather products. He was a good driver and a tour guide.

All in all, it was a good and pleasant journey. We wish we could have longer time to go to Bromo Mount since it’s quite close to Malang. Perhaps, next time 🙂

Explore Dieng – Day 1

It’s time to hit the road again with some friends. This time I went to Dieng, Wonosobo, Central Java (13-15 Nov 2015).

This place is the one of the famous highlands in Indonesia.
