Vacation – Yogyakarta (Borobudur, Prambanan, & Gembira Loka)

When I was child, about 12 years ago at December 2001… I and my family went to Yogyakarta

In Yogyakarta we visited some recreation place, there are Borobudur Temple, Prambanan Temple, and Gembira Loka Zoo.

1). Firs I want share my experience in Borobudur Temple. Borobudur is one of historic heritage site.

In that place you can see many Stupa which has Buddha statue inside them.

There are any trust that, if you can touch the hand of Buddha existing inside the Stupa, the dream will come true. I and my mom also my brother try to touched the Buddha’s hand, but, because of my hand too short I could not touch it. ๐Ÿ˜›

2). Now I want share my experience in Prambanan Temple. Different from Borobudur Temple, Prambanan Temple is a Hindus Temple. If the Borobudur Temple has a rounded top, the Prambanan Temple has a towering peaks.

Vacation – Taman Safari (Cisarua Bogor)

28-12-2009 I went to Taman Safari at Cisarua Bogor, West Java.

I went with my family…

Di Taman Safari kita dapat melihat berbagai jenis satwa yang bebas berkeliaran di jalan. Koleksi satwa di Taman Safari ini lengkap mulai dari unggas, reptil, mamalia kecil, sampai mamalia besar. Untuk menikmati tur kita perlu menggunakan kendaraan seperti bus safari (telah disediakan oleh pengelola bagi yang tidak membawa mobil) atau kendaraan pribadi beroda empat. Semua kendaraan harus tertutup terutama bila telah memasuki area hewan buas (harimau, macan, beruang, dll). Taman safari juga menyediakan tur malam. Jadi pengunjung diperbolehkan untuk berkeliling pada malam hari. Saya dan keluarga mengunjungi Taman Safari saat siang hari, jadi foto-foto yang akan saya tampilkan adalah suasana saat siang hari.

Suasana Taman Safari (dokumentasi pribadi)

Keistimewaan dari taman safari ini yaitu kita dapat berinteraksi langsung dengan hewan. Kita boleh memberi makan hewan yang mendekati mobil kita (tidak untuk hewan buas). Biasanya sebelum pintu masuk Taman Safari banyak pedagang wortel atau kangkung, dan kita dapat membelinya untuk memberi makan hewan. Sensasinya sangat berbeda ketika ada seekor gajah yg memasukkan belalainya ke dalam jendela mobil… Hehehehe ๐Ÿ™‚ agak mengerikan memang, tapi ada pula yang senang, terutama anak2 kecil yang pemberani…

Akses yang sangat dekat dengan hewan namun tetap aman (dokumentasi pribadi)

Selain wisata menyusuri kandang-kandang hewan, Taman Safari juga menyediakan berbagai wahana. Namun, karena keterbatasan waktu, kami tidak dapat menikmati wahana yg lain. Fasilitas yg ada di Taman Safari juga cukup lengkap seperti restoran, tempat parkir yang luas, dll… Tapi jangan terkejut ketika kalian mendapati mobil kalian sudah ditempeli stiker Taman Safari. Saya juga tidak tahu siapa yg “rajin banget” menempel stiker itu. ๐Ÿ˜›

Restoran

Bagi kalian yang belum pernah ke Taman Safari dan sedang berada di sekitar kawasan Bogor, saya sangat merekomendasikan tempat wisata ini. Selain bisa menghibur dan menghilangkan stress, tempat ini juga memberikan wawasan mengenai keanekaragaman satwa di Indonesia serta menumbuhkan kesadaran untuk melestarikan dan mencintai satwa.

Vacation – Mount Salak’s Temple

One of the beautiful Temple that I like in Bogor (West Java) is Mount Salak‘ Temple. There is the place where Hindus praying. The weather in that place is cold. If you arrive at midnight, you can see dew smokes fall from the sky. Your mouth will steamy when you are talking. If you canโ€™t tolerate cold weather, you must prepare socks and jacket. These are some photos that I toke when I and my Family went to Mount Salak’ Temple :

When I was in this place, I feel peace in my soul.ย If you are a Hindus and you come to Bogor or live near Bogor, you must visit this temple. I recommended this Temple for you ๐Ÿ™‚
