HalalTrip to Indonesia – Day 3 in Garut with Fatin
We had a long day today since we were travelling by car from Jakarta to Garut. Along the way we made several stops. The first stop was at Asstro which was short for Asem Strawberry. It had a very nice view with great places to eat; the view of the paddy field is rarely seen in the city. My husband and I really enjoyed having lunch here as they served delicious food with privacy for each guest. fatin-day-3---1 We then stopped at Pondok Pesantren Suryalaya. This place caters to people who want to get closer to Allah S.W.T. There were students who used to be drug abusers but after staying at Pesantren for quite some time (around 40 days or more, depends) they managed to get rid of their addiction. After we went to Pesantren, we went to a lake named Situ Lengkong Panjalu. Over there we took some pictures by the lake and we strolled around the shop. This place was one of the earliest places where Islam started to spread. fatin-day-3-lake From there we went to Garut and had take-away for dinner. Garut is a place where an active volcano is located. Hot springs are very popular here. The weather is also nice and it is cold at night. Basically today's trip was mostly spent in the car since travelling from one place to another took some time (3-4 hours each). However my husband and I did enjoy today's trip and we can't wait for tomorrow! . Click here to view my timeline! .
