Monday, August 28, 2017

Looking for a way to reach places from Bali to Nusa Lembongan? Nusa Lembongan is an island located in the eastern side of Bali known for the beauty of its coral reefs and its marine creature, that is why a lot of local and foreign divers book their way to go from Bali to Nusa Lembongan. Nusa Lembongan or so called the best diving place in Bali is a tropical island offering a perfect way to rest and relax while enjoying the sunset. Not only that, there are also micro-industries for seaweed that you can enjoy (this will certainly entice seaweed lovers out there!) The economy here is an economy that is based on tourism as their biggest income, thus the services that they offer would satisfy you as a tourist. Even though water based activities such as diving, banana boating, and surfing are activities that Nusa Lembongan is known for, Nusa Lembongan will also present to you beautiful sceneries, and mesmerizing beaches and horizon.

That is interesting, show me the way!

As a tourism-based island, Nusa Lembongan provides several routes from Bali that you can choose to go there, the most common ones are from Sanur Beach, Serangan, and Benoa Harbour. It might be the most convenient for you to go there from Sanur Beach because around 15 cruises depart from there. To go to Nusa Lembongan from Serangan, you will be served by one of the best fast boat company in Bali. And the last, if you go to Nusa Lembongan from Benoa Harbour, 4 cruises are ready to take you to your desired place. Beside all the companies that will take you to Nusa Lembongan, Local Boat could be your choice for limited budget.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the boat service might be tricky for tourist, so being smart at choosing the right one will be the solution. For Cruises Company, the cost vary from IDR 500.000 to IDR 650.000. Too expensive for your taste? No worries, you still have local boat as your choice that might cost you around IDR 100.000 to IDR 300.000. As a side note, the local boat will take a longer time to take you to the destination. The safety also become the difference here, on bad weather I beseech you to not use a local boat service because usually they do not provide you with life jackets. The departure times is also varied as the earliest will depart at 08.00 am and the latest at 17:00 pm

Relaxing and resetting our mind on a holiday will help us to start a fresh start on a new semester or packed working weeks, so planning a transportation to your holiday destination is crucial. Choosing the right destination, right time, and right cost will be the wise of you. Nusa Lembongan might be the right choice for you so in case you have plan ahead to go to Bali, maybe you want to try travelling from Bali to NusaLembongan to enjoy its scenery.

Buddhist temple Borobudur and Hindu temple Prambanan, even though both of them are different kind of temple, these two sites are drawing a lot of people to visit them as they are the most popular temple in Indonesia. Both of Borobudur and Prambanan are located in Java, near to each other. That is why local and foreign tourist often asking “can I visit Borobudur and Prambanan in one day?”. The answer is yes, you can do Borobudur and Prambanan tour in one day. You can but please notice that the both sites, Borobudur and Prambanan, are not so close. Borobudur temple is on the Northwest side 45 km away from the center of Yogyakarta while Prambanan is around 17 km away to the east from the center of Yogyakarta. It might be tricky to for you to find a right travel agent or it sounds tiring to do it, but when you get a hold of it, it is not that complicated. So, if you want to visit both sites in one day, you have to consider several things like budget (of course), and time. Because you will need a quite long time to go from the first site to another one, you will need to start your trip early in the morning. Beside that, it will have plus and negatives on doing this tour in one day, and you might need to consider it.

Tips and trick

It is very easy to arrange this one day trip because the travel agents here are highly advertised or you can go outside from your hotel and find the travel agent’s offices lining in neighborhood. Yogyakarta-Magelang is a tourism city after all. A lot of packages are offered but one day tour from Borobudur to Prambanan is the most popular one. Once again, choosing the packet will depends on your budget. You might want to note that the travel agent availability depends on the quantity of the passengers. So, it is best to book the tour several days prior. Another trick is to not choosing the travel right away. Be smart at negotiating the prices. Don’t be afraid, the local people are nice and laidback so they won’t be annoying when persuading you.

‘Yes’ or ‘no’

If you only stay for short amount of time in the town then doing the tour in one day might be the answer for you. The tour usually including a breakfast because the travel agent will pick you up early in the morning around 5 am/4 am. Some tour packages also offer you the opportunity to see the sunrise, yet you need to get ready earlier. The other plus side is, buying the ticket for both Borobudur and Prambanan will be cheaper if you do the one day tour instead of touring in separated days.

Here comes the negatives. For your information, Borobudur and Prambanan are huge sites or complex. choosing to do the one day tour will give you about 2 hours to explore each sites and believe me it is not enough to explore all of them and it will drain your energy. Thus, if you want to actually enjoy through and until the detail, it is advised to do the tour in separated days.

In the end of the days, despite all the pros, contrast, and all the consideration, the choice to do Borobudur and Prambanan Tour in one day is in your hand.
