#ThaiTrip, Here is the Tip! – Lodging in Chiang Mai

Standard

Traveling and lodging come in one package, right? So, here was the inn which housed us in Chiang Mai. Since the four of us were not fussy on having the great-with-stars kind of hotel, so we went for those which offered excellent values–meaning: great location (near the food and transportation!), basic facilities: B&B! (we would rather bed and bathroom than bed and breakfast!) and, since we did mind our budget, great price (read: cheap, cheap, cheap!). If you are looking for the same things, you might want to check this out.

Candi Muaro Jambi: An Almost-Neglected History (Jan 24, 2014)

Standard


Me at one of the temples in Candi Muaro Jambi compounds

The place is around one-plus hour ride from the airport, assuming the average speed of the vehicles is 60-70km/h. That time at the entrance we were told to pay IDR 15.000 for entrance fee. It was not clear whether that amount was meant for 3 person (IDR 5.000 per person), or two motorbikes that we rode. We were not given any ticket whatsoever, the guards just let us inside with a smile after we paid. We were not given any brochures or maps, too. Those guards said that they had been out-of-print. Oh, well.

Santap Sedap Kuliner Bogor, Ini Rekomendasinya!

Highlight: Kedai Kita, Momomilk, Sop dan Sate Sapi Bang Adi Kumis

Bogor itu menyimpan banyak kuliner sedap! Seru banget wisata kuliner ke kota hujan yang jaraknya hanya sekitar setengah jam dari Depok (kalo pake kereta hehehe). Sebenarnya belum sempat mencoba banyak, baru tiga tempat. Tapi, menurut saya tiga tempat ini punya nuansa dan citarasa yang oke.. sudah lebih dari sekali saya balik lagi ke tiga tempat ini buat tambo ciek!
