  • 7 Reasons to go to Yogjakarta For Your Next Solo Adventure

    Planning a solo adventure? The good news is, you’re not alone. On average, around half the members of a small group adventure will be travelling on their own. Numbers may vary from one holiday to the next, but more people are heading off on solo adventures – and why not? Then, when thinking about a location for solo adventures, what do we look for? A city with sights our eyes have never seen, and a destination so unique, it’ll leave us with memories that’ll last forever, agree? Yogyakarta should be the best place to visit. With such an enormous selection of things to do, it is no wonder that Yogyakarta features on many travellers' itineraries. With fantastic transport links all around java, and a well-connected airport, truly, it is a place to experience. This is reflected also in the variety of choices on offer, from budget dorms that cater to backpackers, to finely decorated boutique hotels offering very personalised services, there is something to be had for everyone who visits Yogyakarta, the heart and soul of Java. Halaltrip explores some of the amazing things you can do there: 1. You Don’t Need To Visit Africa To See Sand Dunes Picture Credit - www.yogya-backpacker.com Have you ever wanted to try sandboarding? Save yourself from planning an expensive trip to Africa! Simply travel to Yogyakarta for a more accessible alternative. What makes Parangkusumo sand dune unique is the Barchan sand dune. Besides that, the occurrence of sand dunes or sand banks is considered an unusual phenomenon in Yogyakarta, an area that has generally very high rainfall. The sand dunes here are different from other sand dunes in the world. Based on studies conducted by experts, this sand dune comes from the eruption of Mount Merapi whereby the sediments are carried by rivers to the south coast of Central Java. Sounds unusual right? So, when you want to find Yogyakarta tourist attractions for your solo adventure let’s try visit Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo. Beside that, Parangkusumo Beach is one of the popular Yogyakarta beach and is a must-visit! 2. Enjoying Merapi Lava Tour Picture Credit - www.forestravelling.blogspot.comThe Merapi Lava Tour is an off-road adventure on the slopes of Merapi Volcano with a serious backstory. The tour is held around the region most affected by the last volcanic explosion. During the tour, you are driven around on a 4×4 jeep through a beautiful landscape. You will also visit some of the villages that were abandoned following the last eruption. This is definitely one of the interesting things to do in Yogyakarta when you are visiting the city. And yes, you can do it for your next solo adventure! Maybe you'll find something unique when you're travelling alone. Curious about the modern food in Yogyakarta? Who says you just can eat traditional food? Want to find Halal food near you in Yogyakarta? Then, you can visit The Captain Urban Lounge that offers lots of mouthwatering snacks such as nachos and tacos. It located in Damai Street Number 41, Yogyakarta. If you’re looking for a heavier meal, the pasta here can never go wrong! Wanna try? 3. The Cultural Experience in Yogyakarta Picture Credit - www.peterloud.co.uk Yogyakarta has a long history of acculturation between cultures, a process whereby dominant cultural influences supersede, borrow or modify ideas and practices from other cultures.  So, you'll find not only an eclectic mix of traditions, but multiple religions and cultures living in harmony among a predominantly Muslim population - a rare and incredible example of tolerance for our day and age.  You can even experience many of the traditions each group has preserved, especially in rural areas.  Yogyakarta is filled with cultural tours and events celebrating Javanese culture on a large scale, and some of these traditions cannot be found in other parts of Indonesia. The most popular cultural artefacts and performances are batik designs, shadow puppets, Javanese dance, Gamelan music, kebaya dress and so on, are very easy to find throughout the city. Don’t worry about finding mosques and prayer places in Yogyakarta, there are several popular prayer places such as Masjid Gedhe Kauman, St. Fransiskus Xaverius Church, Pura Vaikuntha Vyomantara etc. Also, Muslim-friendly tours to Yogyakarta are available, so prepare yourself and find whatever you need on Yogyakarta travel blog.   4. Meditate at The Luweng Sampang Picture Credit - www.indonesia-tourism.com Find a calm place to sit and meditate behind a watery curtain, where you will find beautiful, exotic scenery dazzling your eyes.  Wow, that would be great for your solo adventure! You'll feel like you're in the Grand Canyon, because what lies in front of you are carved rocks, naturally arranged, forming a great picture of natural beauty. The rock formations appeared by the natural process of water erosion. The site is found in Juminahan street, Sampang Village, Gedangsari Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta. Even though the best time to visit Yogyakarta would be from mid-late August for its ideal weather, you can still visit this place any time of the year, so don't worry about the weather. 5. Abseil 6 Stories Down Into The Earth Picture Credit - www.xplorea.com Looking for a Halal tour to Indonesia with a great adventure? Visit Jomblang Cave! The climb into Jomblang cave can be difficult and muddy, and maybe you’ll wake up with sore arms and legs the next day, but it is so worth it! Capture the "light from the heavens" on camera, and you need to capture it immediately, because it only lasted for a few seconds when we were there. Abseiling down 6 stories might seem daunting but it’s a thrilling adventure you wouldn’t want to miss. Take the leap of faith and step into a another world in this collapsed forest-turned-cave. A short trek through darkness would take you face to face with one of the most spectacular views ever. Wear clothes that you no longer want anymore, so that you can throw it away immediately. Bring a pair of socks for the boots, a shower cap for the helmet and a clean set of clothes to change into. Put your phone into a waterproof bag which you can hang around your neck, and use your phone as a torch, as the cave can be very dark at some points. It was such a great experience for us! 6. Yogyakarta Is a City With Many Prehistoric Relics Picture Credit - www.javabalitrips.com Did you know that Indonesia is a country that has many prehistoric relics? One proof is one of the world's oldest human fossils have been found in this country. If you’re keen on prehistory, you should visit Yogyakarta, as many prehistoric relics were discovered there, around the city. Two of them are the famous Borobudur Temple (largest Buddhist temple in the world) and Prambanan Temple (largest Hindu temple in Indonesia). There is even a temple recently discovered, currently being excavated and studied. So this place could be a paradise for archaeologists. Otherwise, you can go shopping in Yogyakarta. Just visit Malioboro, major shopping street in Yogyakarta, located in the heart of the city, this is the main street and was once the ceremonial avenue for the Sultan to pass through on his way to and from the Keraton. Don't ever feel reluctant to bargain when you're about to shop in there, the final price is usually determined by your bargaining skills, and your final offer. 7. Cheap and Good Food For The Soul Picture Credit - www.bristolindonesiansociety.wordpress.com As you may know, each region of Indonesia has its own special delicacy. In Jogja, the most-wanted dish is the Gudeg, which tastes very distinct from any other Indonesian dishes. Gudeg is made of Jack fruit, cooked with coconut milk and spices, which gives it a sweet and spicy taste, as you can guess.

  • Getting Around in Kuala Lumpur By Public Transport

    Are you going on a holiday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia? Then make sure you read our Kuala Lumpur transportation guide prior to your trip! Travelling in Kuala Lumpur can be a breeze these days thanks to its recent development of public transportation, which sees the MRT railway line connecting hard-to-reach places in the city better than ever. If you’re a lone female traveler, issues like safety is always a high priority. Check out these transportation tips and info about Kuala Lumpur public transportation, and how you can best get around town safely as a female traveler on her own:   1.Metered Taxis Picture Credit - journeyfor4.com If you’ve ever followed the news about traveling in Asia, chances are you’ve probably heard of Malaysia (and specifically Kuala Lumpur) being a notorious destination where its taxi service is one of the worst in the region. Cases like rude taxi drivers refusing to use the meter, or sleazy taxi drivers taking advantage of their passengers are cautionary tales for travelers getting around Kuala Lumpur by taxi. That said, if you’re wondering how to get around in Kuala Lumpur easily, your best option is metered taxis. Avoid rogue cabbies at all cost by getting on a legitimate metered taxi. Here are some tips for getting a safe and metered taxi in the city: Get a ticket or receipt at a taxi counter or operator, where you’re required to state your destination and pay beforehand. Only get on a taxi that has stickers on its passenger doors that read like this: “This is a metered taxi. Haggling is prohibited. Request for your receipt.” Taxis can be the best and fastest option if you’re going somewhere that has no railway stopping point. Depending on your destination when you visit Kuala Lumpur, a journey could cost you between RM5 to RM80 (a long journey that takes 40 minutes or more often costs RM30-RM80). If you can, avoid taking a taxi during rush hour (7am-9am and 5pm-7pm), especially if you’re passing by the Federal Highway, Petaling Jaya, Ampang, or any major cities within Kuala Lumpur with high population.   2. Buses Picture Credit - commons.wikimedia.org Considered to be the cheapest transport options in Kuala Lumpur, taking a bus can be the best choice for you if you want to travel by public transport in Malaysia on a budget. Major bus operators in Kuala Lumpur are the Rapid KL, Cityliner, Intrakota, and Metrobus. The best operator to date is the Rapid KL, as it connects the city center with the suburbs of the Klang Valley. If you prefer to get around town by bus, plan your journey in advance and calculate the fares accurately on the MyRapid website.   3. The Klang Valley Integrated Transit System Picture Credit - www.myrapid.com.my The number one choice for many city dwellers and travellers in Kuala Lumpur, the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System consists of an airport rail link to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), one bus rapid transit line, one monorail line, two KTM commuter rail lines (along with shuttle services), and two light rapid transit (LRT) lines. The KTM offers women’s coaches, noticeable by its pink color. Check out the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System map for more details and to calculate the fares. These are some of the city’s tourist attractions near major train stations: KTM Kuala Lumpur Station (Port Klang Line): Islamic Arts Museum, National Mosque, Dataran Merdeka, Central Market, and National Museum. KL Monorail Bukit Bintang Station: Pavillion Shopping Mall, Lot 10 Shopping Mall, Fahrenheit 88 Shopping Mall, Bintang Walk, Berjaya Times Square Shopping Mall, and Sungei Wang Shopping Mall. MRT Putrajaya Sentral Station (Sungai Buloh – Serdang – Putrajaya Line): Putra Mosque, Perdana Putra (The Prime Minister’s Office), Putra Square, Natural History Museum, and Putrajaya Wetlands Park. 4. Major transit hubs in Kuala Lumpur Picture Credit - www.tbsbts.com.my There are different transit hubs for local and intercity travel: Local travel: Bandar Tasik Selatan Station, Masjid Jamek, and KL Sentral. Each of these transit hubs has a train interchange between the ERL Transit and KTM and LRT lines. Intercity travel: If you’d like to travel further out of Kuala Lumpur, head to one of these transit hubs: Duta Bus Terminal, KL Sentral, and Pudu Sentral. If you’re traveling intercity by train or bus, the journey could cost you between RM15 to RM50 per trip. 5. Transportation Passes Picture Credit - www.kliaekspres.com Avoid the long queue at the ticket counter and get yourself an all-access transport pass to save time (and money!). For travelers, the most recommended pass is the KL TravelPass, which allows you to explore the city with 2-day unlimited train rides. The travel card includes KLIA Express airport transfer (Single or Return Trips) and 2-day unlimited rides on Rapid KL rail services (LRT, MRT, and KL Monorail lines). You can purchase the card at KLIA Platform (Level 1), Gateway@KLIA2 (Level 2), or KL Sentral Departure Hall (Level 1).
