The Home’s main unique selling point is that it is so detached from other people and homes that it can have open windows, a private backyard, and a swimming pool without the fear of anyone seeing through. Halal-conscious travelers may take a moment to get used to this place because it would feel as though anyone can see them, but its location and architecture as well as positioning over normal ground level mean that it’s hard for any visitors to intrude. However, this home is shared with the hosts so conversation and boundaries would have to be discussed for hijabis. This should be of no problem as all the reviews rave about the host’s hospitality and how they added to the experience of staying here. Granted this place is located away from the city and closer to nature’s reserves, situated at the foot of the Kalamunda national park but this Airbnb should be considered for its unique experience.

  • 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.

Phone: +62 852 005 2054   Glagah Beach - The Best Wave Breaker Beach in Yogyakarta Image Credit: 10travlr Discussing about Glagah Beach, the local people mostly will very proud of its beautiful lagoon. 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. Thus, visitors must do trekking in the forest to get to the main spot. Here, a path has been provided so that visitors just follow the direction of the road. Kalibiru Nature Tourism provides a viewing tower that visitors can use to enjoy the surrounding scenery. While taking pictures with the background of the hills covered in green trees. This viewing tower is a pine tree that has been fitted with wooden planks and a hanging ladder. From here, visitors can not only see the hills with trees. But also the Menoreh Mountains and the winding Sermo Reservoir. Sermo Reservoir is the largest dam in Jogja. Address: Jalan Waduk Sermo, Kokap, Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta.

For those who want to upload the latest photo collections on Instagram, Pule Payung is the right place to capture vacation moments.

Address: Hargotirto Village, Kokak District, Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta Opening hours: 8.00 am to 4.00 pm every day. 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.
