    Java, the most populated island of Indonesia, is home to some of the most incredible volcanic landscapes in the world. Central Java and East Java are a must for your Indonesia itinerary. The smoking craters at Mount Bromo and Kawah Ijen have become famous tourist destinations in Java, but this island is also dotted with jungles, ancient temples, and waterfalls galore. This 1-week East Java itinerary will guide you through some of the unmissable highlights of Java that we visited on our first trip through the area, starting in Central Java and ending in west Bali. You can click the links for more information on each of these sights as you go! The starting point of this Java itinerary is Yogyakarta in central Java, Indonesia. Fly to Yogyakarta International Airport (YIA), which is served by a bunch of budget friendly airlines with good ratings. AirAsia often has flights from Singapore (SIN) or Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Yogya for 1 million Rupiah ($70 USD), or flights from Bali (DPS) for only 600k Rupiah ($40). You can shop for flights to Yogyakarta at Skyscanner. You can also do this itinerary in reverse if you’d like, starting with the Bali ferry ride and then ending in Yogyakarta. The whole process will be largely the same! Kick off your Java sightseeing with a full day trip to Dieng Plateau in the volcanic highlands west of Yogyakarta, starting from town in the early morning hours to get there in time for an epic sunrise on Sikunir hill. After the sunrise, go see the sulfuric lakes, hill terraces, smoking hot springs, and some of the oldest surviving temples on the island of Java. More info: Dieng Plateau Dieng Plateau Sunrise on Sikunir hill Spend the morning exploring Prambanan, a group of massive Hindu temple ruins near Yogyakarta city in central Java. This temple is less famous than its cousin Borobudur, but I actually like this one best. Move on to Borobudur, a big 9th century Buddhist temple that is a bit further outside Yogya and is famous as the largest Buddhist temple in the world. Side note: you can swap the order of Borobudur and Prambanan on this day if you want to see the sunrise at Borobudur. Prambanan Temple Borobudur Temple Take the 7:45 AM train from Yogyakarta Stasiun to Malang. The train ride takes 8 hours and costs 170k Rupiah (~$12 USD) per person. Book your tickets online at Tiket.com or the KAI website, and then scan the e-ticket when you reach the station. This train ride was actually one of my favorite parts of the trip! It’s comfy, scenic, and enjoyable. You get A/C and food, and some amazing views of the Java countryside. Start your day at the most impressive waterfall in Indonesia, Tumpak Sewu. The best lighting for photos is early in the morning, and it’s a 2 hour drive from Malang, so you’ll need to get a very early start! From Tumpak Sewu, drive another 10 minutes east to the trailhead for Kabut Pelangi. This is a huge waterfall worth the 45 minute hike! From Kabut Pelangi, drive another 10 minutes east to the trailhead for Kapas Biru waterfall. This one is a short 30 minute hike, but the waterfall at the end is incredibly scenic. Tumpak Sewu Waterfall Kabut Pelangi Waterfall Kapas Biru Waterfall This is a cool side trip you can do before the drive to Bromo. Coban Pelangi waterfall is a hidden beauty, located in the mountains 1 hour east of Malang. Drive from Malang to Cemoro Lawang (the village at Mount Bromo). The distance from Malang is only 130 kilometers (80 miles), but be prepared for it to take 3+ hours. Get to bed early so you can be ready for Bromo! Mount Bromo is one of the main highlights of this East Java itinerary, so you’ll want to do it justice. Coban Pelangi Waterfall Volcano X-ing Before the sunrise Wake up early and hike or drive to the sunrise viewpoint for Mount Bromo. Seeing these smoking volcano craters at the crack of dawn is a bucket list experience you’ll never forget. Drive from Bromo to Ijen (homestay nearby is best). The distance from Bromo to Ijen is 230 kilometers (140 miles) and the drive takes a whopping 6+ hours. Sunrise At Mount Bromo Mount Bromo Wake up early and hike to the Ijen Crater. It’s a tough hike and you have to start very early if you want to see the blue fire (optional), or at least get there by golden hour for the best photos. Cross from Java to Bali with the ferry at Ketapang. The trip takes 30-60 minutes and only cost us 8k Rupiah (less than one US Dollar) per person since we weren’t bringing any vehicle with us. In Bali, you can book a private driver in advance to pick you up at the port (recommended), or you can negotiate for one when you land at the port. Either way, there will be an extra charge for drivers here, since the port is a long drive from the main tourist areas of Bali and it’s outside of most drivers’ normal service areas. Welcome to Bali! The adventure is just getting started! Kawah Ijen crater lake Ferry To Bali The best time to visit Java is from April to November, when it’s more sunny and dry. The rainy season runs from November to April. You can go during this time, but it may not be ideal for the waterfalls or sunrises. Tumpak Sewu Waterfall Starting from Malang (Day 3), we had a driver from Zaini Transport for the rest of the trip. He took us to all the waterfalls on this East Java itinerary, plus Mount Bromo and Ijen, and finally dropped us at the Bali ferry. His daily price at Malang was 400k Rupiah + petrol, which worked out to be 620k Rupiah ($44 USD) for a full day visiting 3 waterfalls in Lumajang, then driving back to comfy Malang. His Bromo/Ijen rate was a little higher, but still the lowest I could find anywhere!

    Designing Your Perfect Travel Itinerary: A Comprehensive Guide

    # Introduction Travelling is an exploration, an incredible journey of discovery. The magic lies not just in the destination, but also in the process of getting there. A crucial part of this process is planning the itinerary. When properly done, a well-designed itinerary brings order to the potential chaos of travel and enhances the entire experience. # The Importance of a Good Itinerary. An itinerary serves as a detailed plan of your travels. It not only outlines your travel schedule but also provides essential information like flight details, accommodations, and activities. Having an itinerary is important as it helps keep things organized, ensuring you spend your vacation time wisely. # Understanding Your Travel Preferences. Fostering a clear understanding of what you expect from your trip is paramount in designing a great itinerary. Are you looking for adventure, relaxation, or cultural immersion? Your preferences shape your travel blueprint, helping you decide which places to visit and which to skip. # Researching Potential Destinations. Once you've established your travel preferences, the next step is to research potential destinations. Look at images, read blogs, reviews or travel books, and watch travel vlogs to get an idea of what to expect. Remember to consider essential factors such as weather conditions, local customs, and safety. # Scheduling Your Time. Ensuring a balanced schedule is crucial in itinerary planning. It’s certainly tempting to cram as many activities as possible into your schedule. However, doing so often leads to fatigue and results in a less enjoyable travel experience. Furthermore, make sure to allocate some free time for unexpected adventures. # Booking and Reservations. After you have a preliminary itinerary, start making bookings and reservations. This includes transportation (flights, trains, buses), accommodation, and activities. Remember always to have a confirmation of your bookings at hand. # Preparing Plan B. Despite meticulous planning, not everything always goes according to plan. Having an alternative plan at your disposal helps to mitigate any potential disruptions to your schedule. # Review and Adjust. Last but not least, review your itinerary. Ensure all the necessary details are included and that it coheres with your travel expectations. Don’t fret making any adjustments where necessary. # Conclusion While the process of designing a travel itinerary can be daunting, it is definitely rewarding. With careful research, keen attention to detail, and a fair dose of flexibility, you can plan a trip that would offer an enriching and enjoyable travel experience. Embark on your journey with a well-planned itinerary and let the adventure unfold. .

    4-Day Nusa Penida Itinerary: Bali’s Blue Paradise Island

    Bali day trippers to the blue paradise island of Nusa Penida usually only visit the top Instagram hotspots like Kelingking Beach and Diamond Beach, but there are so many other amazing things to add to your itinerary. From hidden beaches, to massive cliffs, sea caves and coral gardens, this island off the coast of Bali has every kind of exotic scenery imaginable. This 4-day Nusa Penida itinerary will guide you through some of the unmissable highlights of the island, along with some hidden gems that most day tours miss out on. You can click the links for more information on each of these sights as you go! This entire Nusa Penida itinerary takes place on Penida island in the province of Bali, but first you have to get there! Fly to Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali, which is served by a bunch of budget friendly airlines with good ratings. AirAsia often has flights from Singapore (SIN) or Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Bali for 1 million Rupiah ($70 USD) or less. You can shop for flights to Bali at Skyscanner. Next, take a morning speedboat from Sanur beach to Sampalan harbor in Nusa Penida. The journey only takes about 45 minutes or so. If you hired a driver he’ll be waiting to pick you up at the harbor, otherwise you can rent a scooter pretty easily on the spot, and then the adventure begins! Read More: How To Get To Nusa Penida Akusara Jungle Villa Ume Tenang MAUA Hotel Unicorn Bungalow Start the day off at this epic cliff spot, one of the most photogenic and popular views anywhere in Bali. If you’re up for a real challenge, hike down to the beach and back up, but bring plenty of water! Just a short distance from the famous Kelingking cliff is this alternate viewpoint with a lot less crowds. It’s very easy to visit and only adds a few minutes to your itinerary! This is another cliff spot that most tours pass up. If you’re interested, there’s a steep trail down to the bottom, where you can chill in a nice natural pool. This is a hidden gem, a very short hike with a great payoff. Follow the stairs down to the west edge of the cliffs and you’ll get an amazing view of the doughnut shaped Banah rock and the white cliffs. End the day with a trek down to Tembeling Beach. You can do the whole hike on foot, or hire a motorcycle taxi to take you down and back up. There’s a refreshing natural pool at the bottom, and a sea cave that opens up to a view of the huge cliffs above. Where To Stay In Penida: MAUA Hotel (Luxury) or Unicorn Bungalow (Midrange) Kelingking Beach Paluang Cliff Pererenan Cliff Banah Cliff Point Tembeling Beach Day 2 is about incredible beaches. Enjoy the views of Diamond Beach from the overlook, and then walk the stairs down to the white sand. I think this is one of the most amazing beaches in the world. Just a 2 minute walk from Diamond Beach is another one called Atuh Beach. This one may not be as ‘Instafamous’ but it’s still a great place to relax on the sand and get some food and drinks. This group of 3 wooden tree houses sits right next to Diamond Beach, just a 5 minute drive away. It’s an epic location and you can even stay the night in one of the tree houses if you want! This is a nice pull off spot you can hit on the drive north from the Diamond Beach area. The cone shaped ‘Teletubby’ hills are best seen shortly after the rainy season, when they’re a bright green color. This is a Hindu temple inside of a big cave. You have to crawl through a tiny opening in the rock to access it, but the inside is way bigger than you might expect. It’s fascinating, and a nice change of pace from the other things on this itinerary. Diamond Beach Atuh Beach Rumah Pohon Treehouse Teletubbies Hill Pura Goa Giri Putri Cave Temple Wake up early for a 2-3 hour snorkeling tour on the west side of the island. Shared tours cost about 150k IDR per pax and this can be arranged with Nusa Penida Explorer (☎ +62 818-0533-3747). You’ll see rainbow corals, nemo fish, and maybe some manta rays and turtles if you’re lucky! Back on the road again! This is a multicolored tide pool that you can swim and soak in when the tide is low. Just watch out for high tide, because it can be risky here when the waves get really big. This is another natural wonder: a horseshoe shaped bay carved out of the coastline. Sometimes you can even see manta rays floating around here on the surface of the ocean. This is an ocean ‘blowhole’ where the waves rush in and shoot up through a hole in the rocks. It’s a lot of fun to watch, and if the waves are big enough then you can see some seriously huge water bombs going off here. Just keep your distance and hide your electronics from all the spray! Snorkeling Gamat Bay Angel’s Billabong Broken Beach Smoke Beach This is another exotic beach that will remind you of the huge cliffs and pointy rocks at Diamond Beach, although this one is a lot less trafficked and still off the tourist path for most day tours coming to Penida. Places like this are why Penida is nicknamed the ‘blue paradise island’ of Bali. This spot is still virtually unknown to tourism, but the parking is easy to access and the views from the cliffs are amazing. There’s even a narrow and sketchy path down to the point of the rock, but proceed very carefully! Most tourists know of Manta Point as a diving spot where you can see manta rays, but there’s also a scenic viewpoint here where you can watch the boats come and go. This spot is still very quiet, so it’s a very worthy addition to your Nusa Penida itinerary. This is a nice sunset beach with easy access, lots of sunbeds, and lined with food and drink shacks. Perfect place to wind down after a whirlwind tour of Penida island! Suwehan Beach Sekartaji Cliff Spot Manta Point Crystal Bay I hope this Nusa Penida itinerary was helpful for planning your own trip. It really is the blue paradise island of Bali. Don’t forget to check out my full Nusa Penida Travel Guide with free tips, maps, photos, and more! The best time to visit Penida depends on what you’re looking for: ☁ Bali’s rainy season runs from November to April. The weather during the day can be hot and humid at 90-95 F (32-35 C), but it’s less crowded during this time, and the rain is mostly at night. ☀ From May to August, the temps are a lot cooler, and it’s more breezy and sunny. This is the nicest weather. It’s also the high season, so it’s generally more crowded. The sights on this Nusa Penida itinerary are spectacular at any time of the year, but I think the best months for photography are March to May (right after the rainy season ends), when the island is covered with green foliage. If you want to explore Nusa Penida in the comfort and safety of a van with a driver, my top recommendation would be GetYourGuide. They offer a full day of driving and sightseeing in Penida (up to 8 hours) for 1-5 passengers. This tour includes the whole van + driver + petrol. We've used GetYourGuide for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended. Book Now: Nusa Penida Driver Akusara Jungle Villa Ume Tenang MAUA Hotel Unicorn Bungalow We stayed at Saren Villa on the north coast of Nusa Penida, and paid 240k Rupiah ($15 USD) for a private double room with cold A/C, hot shower, and good WiFi. This is one of the cheapest options in Penida, and it's in a great location near the best restaurants! We were happy. Prices may fluctuate from time to time, so just keep an eye out for a good deal.

    3-Day Ubud Itinerary – Touring Bali’s Cultural Center

    Ubud is the cultural capital and heart of Bali, so it’s a must for your itinerary. It also happens to be a great place to base yourself while exploring the island! This 3-day Ubud itinerary will guide you through some of the top highlights of the area, starting in the town center and then branching out to nearby villages with waterfalls, temples, and rice terraces. You can click the links for more information on each of these activities as you go! To give some background on this Ubud itinerary, my wife is Balinese and we always stay in Bali between our other travels. It’s her home, and my second home, so we’ve spent countless days exploring the island. Three days is not enough time to see everything in Ubud (because there’s a ton to see and do!), but it’s a pretty good start. And I’ve added an optional day 4 at the end of this Ubud itinerary in case you want to do even more sightseeing! For many of the sights on this Ubud itinerary, you will need transportation. It’s easy to rent a scooter in Bali, or you can hire a private car with driver for 10 hours of sightseeing. The Kayon Resort Adiwana Unagi Suites Pondok Serayu Umah Dajane Guesthouse This entire itinerary takes place on Bali island in Indonesia, but first you have to get there! Fly to Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali, which is served by a bunch of budget friendly airlines with good ratings. AirAsia often has flights from Singapore (SIN), Bangkok (DMK), or Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Bali for 1 million IDR ($70 USD) or less. Better yet, if you’re located in Australia or New Zealand, you can fly directly to Bali through a number of international airports like Adelaide, Cairns, or Perth, and the costs will be similar. You can shop for flights to Bali at Skyscanner. When you arrive in Bali, take an airport transfer by private taxi to Ubud (you can book this in advance on GetYourGuide). Check in to your hotel in Ubud, and get rested up for the tropical adventure ahead! First things first: the monkeys! Swing by the famous Ubud monkey forest for a funny experience getting your pic taken with the Balinese macaques. There are hundreds of them living in the jungle here, and they’re (mostly) friendly to outsiders. It’s the perfect way to start off your Ubud itinerary. Just up the street from the monkey forest, you’ll find the Ubud art market. It’s full of interesting handmade souvenirs like wood carvings, paintings, coconut bowls, rattan hats and bags, and everything else you can imagine. Feel free to haggle for lower prices, because some of the sellers here start a bit on the high side. On the street corner is this fancy palace from the 1800s, with amazing Balinese stone carvings and courtyards. It’s a quick stop (15 minutes) but very worthwhile! Across the street from the Ubud palace, with just a 3 minute walk you’ll find Saraswati Temple. This one has elaborate doors and walls that make for some great photo spots. Where To Stay In Ubud: Adiwana Unagi (Luxury) or Umah Dajane (Budget) Ubud Monkey Forest Ubud Art Market Ubud Palace Saraswati Temple Bali’s most famous rice terraces are at Tegalalang, just a 15 minute drive north of Ubud. There are foot paths to walk through the whole valley and see the terraces up close. For some reason this is one of the least known temples in Bali, even though it’s one of the most scenic (IMO) and easy to reach from Ubud. It has a nice koi pond, garden, and courtyards to explore, and it’s only a 5 minute drive north from Tegalalang. Tirta Empul is the most famous temple in the Tegalalang area, and one of the most famous in Bali. Tourists and locals alike come here to bathe in the Hindu spring. Even if that’s not your thing, you might enjoy the interesting buildings and the big art market nearby. This is a hidden temple and archaeological site more than 1,000 years old, where you can see ancient funeral shrines carved into the cliffs. It’s a fascinating piece of Bali’s history. By this point you might be feeling templed out. If not, head over to Goa Gajah, a weird looking cave temple from the 9th century. It’s got one of the craziest doorways you’ll see in Bali. Tegalalang Rice Terraces Gunung Kawi Sebatu Water Temple Tirta Empul Temple Gunung Kawi Temple Goa Gajah Temple The Bangli area has lots of great waterfalls and it’s not far from Ubud. Start with Goa Giri Campuhan waterfall, in the north. This one is hidden and you have to sneak through a couple of cool caves to reach it. This is a unique looking waterfall and swimming hole at the bottom of a big ravine in the jungle. It’s a steep hike down, but you can cool off in the natural pools at the bottom. Tibumana used to be a secret waterfall, but it’s exploded in the last couple years and now every Instagrammer comes here. It’s still worth a visit! This is another free waterfall just 500 meters from the entrance to Tibumana. It’s a small 2-step waterfall with no crowds, and you can reach it in 5-10 minutes. Watch out for slippery rocks! Goa Rang Reng has 3 different waterfalls, but my favorite is the first one, a big sloped cascade that looks like a natural Slip N Slide. Goa Giri Campuhan Waterfall Kuning Waterfall Tibumana Waterfall Taman Sari Waterfall Goa Rang Reng Waterfall If you want to add an extra day (or half day) to your Ubud itinerary, hire a private driver and head south from Ubud to Denpasar, checking out some more places on the way. Balinese wood carvings are some of the best in Southeast Asia, and the carvers at Mas village are known for being top notch. Warning though, some of these can be very pricey. Research and haggle before you buy. This is a small park with hundreds of butterflies, but the best part is getting to hold an Atlas Moth, the biggest moth in the world. They also have giant stick bugs from Borneo. Tegenungan is the busiest and most touristy waterfall in Bali. Don’t go here to escape the crowds, but it’s still a nice spot for lunch, and you’ll be driving past it anyway! This park has more than 1,000 birds and reptiles ranging from tropical parrots to Komodo dragons. The grounds have an ancient ‘Angkor Wat’ theme that fits perfectly with the wildlife, and everything is very well managed. If the park’s not your thing, you can swap this with Batuan Temple (which is also nearby). Balinese Wood Carvings Kemenuh Butterfly Park Tegenungan Waterfall Bali Bird Park I hope this Ubud itinerary was helpful for planning your own trip. Don’t forget to check out my full Bali Travel Guide with free tips, info, photos, and more! If you want to explore Bali in the comfort and safety of a private car with an English speaking driver, my top recommendation would be GetYourGuide. Their price is 650k Rupiah ($45 USD) for a full day of driving and sightseeing in Bali (up to 10 hours) for 1-5 passengers. That's the total price for the whole car + driver + petrol! It's a great deal. They also offer affordable hotel transfers from the airport. If you'd rather travel by motorbike, they have that too. Their scooter rentals start at 140k Rupiah (~$9) and include a helmet, rain coat, and free delivery in the south Bali area. We've used GetYourGuide for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.

    Discovering the Art of Interior Architecture: From Past to Contemporary

    # Introduction Interior architecture has always been a significant aspect of architectural design, bridging the gap between aesthetic appeal and functional usability. Over the years, it has evolved immensely, reflecting shifts in technology, societal values, and artistic preferences. In this blog post, we delve into the intricacies of interior architecture, tracing its development from historical epochs to its contemporary manifestations. # Historical Overview of Interior Architecture Historically, interior architecture was viewed merely as an extension of architecture. However, with time, it has evolved into a unique and differentiated field. Traditionally, interiors were characterized by elaborate designs with heavy furniture, intricate carvings, rich textiles, and ornate architectural elements such as arches, columns, and domes. During the Renaissance and Baroque eras, for example, interiors were known for their grandeur and opulence, mirroring the societal structures and philosophical ideologies of the time. # Modern Revolution in Interior Architecture Fast forward to the 20th century, the modernist movement dramatically altered the landscape of interior architecture, reducing the emphasis on ornamentation and instead focusing on form, functionality, and minimalism. Architects like Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius transformed the way we perceive and engage with interior spaces, emphasizing clean lines, expansive open layouts, and pure forms. # Role of Technology in Shaping Interior Architecture Technology has played a crucial role in shaping interior architecture in recent years. Advancements in material science have allowed for the creation and use of novel materials such as responsive glass, smart textile, and sustainable materials. These innovations offer exciting possibilities for interior architects, allowing them to manipulate space and form in ways that would have been unthinkable in the past. Additionally, digital systems and software, such as BIM (Building Information Modeling) and 3D visualization tools, have revolutionized the design process itself, enabling architects to render highly-accurate and immersive models of spaces. # Interior Architecture Today: Trends and Themes Today's interior architecture encapsulates a myriad of design philosophies and trends. Some prominent themes include mixed-use spaces, biophilic design, and the revival of craft and tradition. There is an increasing emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly practices, reflecting a growing awareness and concern for our environment. Mixed-use spaces blend different functional areas — such as working, living, and leisure — within a single cohesive setting, reflecting our society's evolving lifestyle. Biophilic design, on the other hand, harnesses the affinity humans have for nature, incorporating natural elements such as plants, natural light, and organic materials into the built environment. # Conclusion Reflecting on the journey of interior architecture, from its early roots to the modern day, it's clear to see how this discipline has evolved over time, adapting to shifts in societal values, technological innovations, and architectural thought. As we move forward into the future, the field of interior architecture will continue to innovate, shaping the way we live and interact with our environments.

The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, located on the Canadian side, offers a vibrant experience with thousands of fluttering butterflies. Birdwatchers can also enjoy spotting various species, such as peregrine falcons and bald eagles, that make their home in the vicinity of the falls. # A Culinary Experience. No trip to Niagara Falls is complete without indulging in its culinary delights. The region boasts a burgeoning food and wine scene, with numerous farm-to-table restaurants and vineyards in nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake.
