  • Things to Do In Yogyakarta After Pandemic

    COVID-19 is still a big problem for several countries in the Southeast Asia region. Some of the countries are able to flatten the curve, yet some of them are still facing difficulty to slow down the transmission. For example, Indonesia is still combating COVID-19 transmission. Currently, there are 59 countries have banned Indonesian travelers to visit their country. This scenario has forced Indonesians to stay inside their country and could not fly overseas. Surely foreign tourist is still not allowed to visit Indonesia. However, look at the bright side, Indonesians can travel domestically when the pandemic blows over. Of course, foreign travelers are also welcome to visit this biggest country in the region. So when this pandemic has vanished from Indonesia, there are nice places to look for in Yogyakarta, the southern part of Java Island, a province with magnificent cultures and social life. Yogyakarta is a province where lots of tourist spots that worth to be visited.  Here I would like to recommend you spectacular attractions in Yogyakarta you must see after the pandemic.   Desa Wisata Tinalah - Keeping Traces of the History and Natural Exoticism of Kulon Progo Image Credit: twitter Kulon Progo regency as part of Yogyakarta province has a natural attraction that will pamper our eyes, body, and mind.

Commonly, beach lagoons have a barrier like sand or rock as it is usually located in relatively shallow and quiet locations. Yet, a lagoon in Glagah Beach is different as it is shaped from a slightly concave-shaped part of the land that contains high tide. Time goes by, this basin forms a broad lake with calm waters, lush edges, and overgrown with wild grass. Glagah Beach Lagoon is also used as a water tourism spot, such as paddle boats, canoes, and small boats that you can use to get around in the lagoon. Due to its quiet location and far from the crashing waves, this lagoon is quite crowded with children. For adults, there are fishing spots in this lagoon. Glagah Beach is known as one of the beaches in Jogja which has quite large waves. Therefore, in the coastal area, a tetrapod was built. It is made of a four-legged concrete structure that functions as a wave breaker so that it doesn't enter the shoreline further. In the middle of the tetrapods, a long concrete path was built that led out to sea. This path also functions like access to the pier. Many tourists could sue this tetrapod area for fishing while enjoying the sea breeze and the waves. The presence of a path surrounded by tetrapods is the hallmark of Glagah Beach. Most of the visitors take pictures of the landscape of the waves that break after hitting the tetrapod. Glagah Beach is located in Glagah Village, Temon District, Kulon Progo Regency where it is 15 kilometers from Yogyakarta. If you want to feel like a backpacker, you can follow this route - take a bus from Giwangan Bus Terminal with Jogja - Wates route. From Wates Terminal you can continue the journey by taking a bus Glagah Beach - Congot - Trisik route. You can ask the driver to stop in Glagah Beach entrance gate. To enter Glagah Beach, you have to pay an entrance ticket of IDR 4,000 per person. This ticket is a form of retribution to the local community that has preserved Glagah Beach. For vehicle parking, motorbikes will be charged a rate of IDR 3,000 per unit, and IDR 10,000 cars will be charged per unit. You also have to bring more money if you intend to enjoy various tourist rides on Glagah Beach. If you want to get around the lagoon by boat, you will be charged a fee of IDR 5,000 per person. Meanwhile, if you want to ride a canoe, you will pay a rate of IDR 20,000 per person. Lastly, don't forget to bring your camera.   Kalibiru Image Credit: hargatiket This excellent tourist spot is developed by the local government and supported by the locals. Kalibiru used to be a fertile state forest area, yet the illegal logging has devastated this area so the local government made a call to rejuvenate this forest area. Kalibiru is located at an altitude of 450 meters above sea level which has now become a lush tourist forest. With hills overgrown by various trees, such as cypress, teak, and eucalyptus. This tourist spot is located in the countryside, no wonder you can find many old Javanese architecture houses. These houses functioned as management offices and entrance ticket counters.

Ticket price: IDR 5,000 / person.   Nglinggo Tea Plantation Image Credit: Puti Niela Kharisma Trekking through terraced slopes covered in green rugs to enjoy the panoramic view of eight high mountain peaks is a charming treat when visiting Nglinggo Tea Plantation, the only tea plantation in Menoreh Hills, Kulon Progo. You can see Camellia sinensis plants filling the hilly terraces of this area when the fog is not coming down. At first glance, it looks like a step covered with a green carpet. The cold air slowly warms up, changing to the cool mountain air. Trekking among the expanse of tea plants, off-road around the tea garden area, or just enjoying the scenery are alternative options for traveling in this tea garden. Not only the unnamed hilltop on the west side which offers a charming panorama. There are still two other peaks on the north side that offer beautiful views from a height. Both are the peaks of Mount Kukusan which is administratively included in the Magelang region, only a few hundred meters from the Nglinggo Tea Plantation. The first, lower peak is known as Dempok Peak, while the higher peak is known as Kendeng Peak. Just like Nglinggo Village, Kendeng Peak also has a history related to Prince Diponegoro. A sacred place in the form of a stone found at the top is believed by residents to be the tomb of a relative of Prince Diponegoro named Pangeran Kendeng. So that the top name is similar to the name of the prince. In contrast to the panoramic views that are presented by the peaks on the west side, the view from Puncak Kendeng and Puncak Dempok does not offer views of the tea garden, but the panoramic view of the eight mountains in Jogja and Central Java, such as Merapi, Merbabu, Andong, Telomoyo, Ungaran, Sumbing, Sindoro, and Prau. In addition, Dempok Peak and Kendeng Peak are also known as favorite spots for sunrise chasers.

  • 11 Best Places To Visit In Greece For First-Timers

    As the world slowly moves away from a total lock-down, it is time to start thinking of taking a holiday again! With many countries opening airports for international travel, Greece started this process slowly and steadily on 15th June and is now moving towards welcoming travelers across all its beautiful islands. While taking the required precautions and also adhering to the new rules for tourists in this COVID-19 era, we are still excited to plan a trip to Greece to welcome a new sunrise as we start thinking, “let’s travel and enjoy other cultures and countries again!” Greece has so much to do and see, that choosing the best places to visit is a hard task. However, as many parts of Greece boast many historical sites, panoramic beaches, charming villages, mouthwatering food, sunny climes, and lots of shopping, we are ready to try out these 11 places in Greece as our first adventure for 2020!. As first-time travelers, we were overwhelmed with everything there is to do and see in Greece, including Greek island and beach hopping. After much research, this is what we have on our agenda for the Greek Islands as first-time travelers to this popular holiday destination. Let's dive in! via GIPHY Athens Image Credit: Photo by Adrian Dascal on Unsplash The capital of Greece is our first choice of cities to visit in this historically rich nation. Not only does Athens have a plethora of significant ancient Greek archaeological wonders, but the city is also a bustling business hub filled with modern-day attractions such as amusement parks, shopping squares, and of course the Greek food culture. While in Athens, these are some of the places to visit. Acropolis of Athens Hadrian's Library Parthenon Theatre of Dionysus Museum of Islamic Art Syntagma Square Temple of Olympian Zeus Old Temple of Athena Acropolis Museum Mount Lycabettus Piraeus Harbour National Garden Monastiraki Flea Market Omonia Square Central Municipal Athens Market Marina Zeas Allou! Fun Park Athens being a cosmopolitan city of Greece, there are several HALAL food restaurants serving a choice of cuisines.   The Greek Peninsula Mainland Greece, while being home to its capital city of Athens, is divided into the six regions of Thrace, Macedonia, and Epirus to the north, and Thessaly, Central Greece, and the Peloponnesus to the south. So, the Greek Peninsula does have much do and see as well. Delphi Image Credit: Photo by DiChatz on Unsplash A town nestled in the mountains of Central Greece, and home to many archaeologically significant sites of ancient Greece including the Temple of Apollo, the Athenian Treasury, the Castalian Spring and the Delphi theatre and hippodrome. Ioannina Image Credit: Photo by Hippo FromEarth on Unsplash in the region of Epirus is home to the only inhabited lake-island in Greece and offers a chance to stay in the castle or the mini-city of ‘Kastro’ while enjoying the stunning views of mountains and lake. Olympia Image Credit: Photo by James Lee on Unsplash in northwestern Peloponnese is the birthplace of the Olympic Games. An iconic village where the Olympic Flame is lit every two years and visiting the Museum of the History of the Olympic Games in Antiquity is a must. Thessaloniki Image Credit: Photo by Digio Lab on Unsplash is the capital city of the Macedonian region of Northern Greece and considered the second largest city after Athens. Like Athens, this city offers both the wonders of the ancient worlds and the modern attractions of today. Check out the city’s Byzantine walls, White Tower and Turkish baths, museums, art galleries and of course the lively food markets.   Santorini Image Credit: Photo by Heidi Kaden on Unsplash Next on the agenda is what we consider one of the best places to visit in Greece. Santorini, a part of the Cyclades island group, is one of the most visited Greek Isles, and no wonder! With its volcanic history, whitewashed houses clinging to the cliffs and the rugged landscape shaped by the volcanic eruption, this gorgeous island is a treasure of this Mediterranean country. While at Santorini, we plan to swim in the clear blue oceans, take in the intrinsic beauty of the villages and enjoy some fabulous Santorini cuisine. We also plan to take in the two main towns of Fira and Oia, where we can enjoy the unique features of each. Fira is known for its shopping and is also the capital of Santorini, while Oia is considered to be the more luxurious town offering many romantic restaurants and high-end shopping to take home that memorable romantic date. While HALAL food maybe a bit difficult to come by, there are many seafood and vegetarian options to choose from. Here are some of the sites and beaches to check out at this lovely Greek Island. Red Beach Paralia Vlichada Ancient Thera Períssa beach Corfu Image Credit: Photo by Karolis Puidokas on Unsplash Corfu is a popular Greek Island with numerous beaches and oceanside activities. Our plan for this Greek Island revolves around beach hopping, soaking in the true Greek beach culture, and enjoying some watersports. Some of the best beaches on this Greek Island include Porto Timoni beach, Agios Georgios of Pagoi, Ermones, Ampelaki beach, Alipa beach, and Platakia beach. To enjoy fun watersport activities, we plan to visit the beaches of Pelekas, Kontogialos, and Glyfada. Time permitting, we will soak in the atmosphere of Old Town Corfu and also visit Perithia. Unfortunately, Corfu like many of the Greek Isles has no HALAL food. But, no worries, as an island there is plenty of seafood choices and vegetarian dishes to choose from.   Crete As the largest of the Greek islands, a visit to Crete will be filled with changing scenes from the expected turquoise coastlines to rolling countryside and rugged mountain regions. Crete is also a mix of quiet villages and bustling cities. We look forward to enjoying a break to relax and unwind with authentic Greek coffee while taking in the vistas of the turquoise ocean views or olive trees as far as the eye can see. These are some of the cities and places on our “to visit” list for this large Greek island. Heraklion Image Credit: Photo by Evangelos Mpikakis on Unsplash As the capital port city of Crete, Heraklion is a mix of ancient ruins, picturesque old towns, restaurants, lots of places to shop, as well as traffic and a large population. Some of the places to visit are the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Vrondisi Fountain, Venetian Fortress, Natural History Museum of Crete, Palace of Knossos, and the Karteros beach. Agios Nikolaos Image Credit: Photo by ERROR 420 on Unsplash As one of the more popular tourist destinations of this Greek Isle, Agios Nikolaos has much to offer from a range of beaches, cafes and boutiques to breathtaking views of Mirabello Bay. A trip to this midsized town will surely be filled with lots of beach-type activity and sunscreen. Lake Voulismeni is also on our must-visit list with a day trip to the Cretan Olive Farm not too far away to learn all about olive oil. Balos Lagoon Image Credit: Photo by Krzysztof Kowalik on Unsplash Crete is renowned for some of the best beaches in Greece. While there are many beautiful beaches on this large Greek Island, Balos Lagoon takes the cake. Its pink sand and turquoise waters, it is not to be missed. Nestled between the island of Imeri Gramvousa and Crete itself, Balos Lagoon is located in the region of Chania near the town of Kissamos. Samaria Gorge Image Credit: Photo by Rinke Dohmen on Unsplash Visiting Crete would not be complete without a visit to its Samarai National Park in the White Mountains. The popular Samarai Gorge which starts in Xylóskalo is 16 kilometers in length, and renowned as the longest gorge in Europe and one of the most extraordinary gorges of Greece. This downhill hike concludes at the Agia Roumelli on the black sand beaches off of the Mediterranean sea. At an altitude of 1,230 meters, the Samarai Gorge is home to over 450 species of flora and fauna, of which nearly 70 are endemic to Crete. The 10-mile one-way hike takes you through rugged cliffs, ancient cypress and pine forests showcasing nature at its best. For your return trip, consider hiring a boat to Chora Sfakion, a remote and sparsely populated town where you can enjoy a rest before continuing your Greek holiday or returning home. A first-time visit to Greece must include Athens and some of the closer towns and places in mainland Greece as well as one or two Greek Islands such as Santorini and Corfu. Crete is an adventure all on its own and can be combined with sightseeing in Athens, Greece. So, while we plan this extended Greece holiday visit, take your time, do your research and put together a holiday plan that best suits your time and budget.  Point to note, as HALAL food and MOSQUES are difficult to find in most Geek towns and Isles, plan ahead and do your research, bring a prayer mat and use our Qibla Directions and Halal Restaurants feature on our app and you are all set to enjoy your Greek vacation.  As a bonus check out the Halal Trip article on Tips and Advice for HALAL food in Greece. via GIPHY...
