Let’s Dive in Indonesia

Posted in Indonesia, Sports, Tips and Information with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2012 by travellingwithkeishinta

Some people sometime use different words to describe this. Yup, some people prefer to use word Dive meanwhile the other, Diving. For me, I can use the two, dive or diving refers to my heart haha.. Also for me diving or dive is more refer to hobby, rather then sports in fact I can say dive or diving can be a job, yes as a diver. Does anyone agree with this one ?

For now, I live in Indonesia and through my blog I want to promote my country..

So many best hot spot places for diving in Indonesia you can explore, such as Raja Ampat, Komodo, Bunaken, Tulamben, Sabang, Wakatobi, etc. But as a beginner or to get first time dive experience, I suggest you to try the nearest one. Yes, located in Jakarta at well known place. It’s in SeaWorld, Jakarta.

As written in their website SeaWorld Indonesia    :

SeaWorld Indonesia was established with the underlying concept of a maritime nation which, geographically, is consisted of more water than land. On October 2nd, 1992, the Governor of Jakarta – Mr. Wiyogo Atmodarminto – placed a cornerstone to mark what was to be a premise for an underwater world, which in less than two years would be known as SeaWorld Indonesia. Now the biggest aquarium site in South East Asia. The premise itself covers over three-acres of landscape, with its main building spreading about 4.500 square meters, fully engaged in numerous exhibitions.

Here are some photos “Diving in SeaWorld Indonesia”

Come and try the precious moment in diving….

Tangkuban Perahu Mountain, West Java, Indonesia

Posted in Indonesia, Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2012 by travellingwithkeishinta

As writen in Wikipedia :

Tangkuban Perahu is a dormant volcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung, the provincial capital of West Java, Indonesia. It last erupted in 1959. It is a popular tourist attraction where tourists can hike or ride to the edge of the crater to view the hot water springs and boiling mud up close, and buy eggs cooked on the hot surface.[2] This stratovolcano is on the island of Java and last erupted in 1983. Together with Mount Burangrang and Bukit Tunggul, those are remnants of the ancient Mount Sunda after the plinian eruption caused the Caldera to collapse.
In April 2005 the Directorate of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation raised an alert, forbidding visitors from going up the volcano. “Sensors on the slopes of the two mountains – Anak Krakatoa on the southern tip of Sumatra Island and Tangkuban Perahu in Java – picked up an increase in volcanic activity and a build up of gases, said government volcanologist Syamsul Rizal.”

Also writen about the legend of Tangkuban Perahu in Wikipedia :

The name translates roughly to “upturning of (a) boat” or “upturned boat” in Sundanese, referring to the local legend of its creation. The story tells of “Dayang Sumbi”, a beauty who lived in West Java. She cast away her son “Sangkuriang” for disobedience, and in her sadness was granted the power of eternal youth by the gods. After many years in exile, Sangkuriang decided to return to his home, long after the two had forgotten and failed to recognize each other. Sangkuriang fell in love with Dayang Sumbi and planned to marry her, only for Dayang Sumbi to recognize his birthmark just as he was about to go hunting. In order to prevent the marriage from taking place, Dayang Sumbi asked Sangkuriang to build a dam on the river Citarum and to build a large boat to cross the river, both before the sunrise. Sangkuriang meditated and summoned mythical ogre-like creatures -buta hejo or green giant(s)- to do his bidding. Dayang Sumbi saw that the tasks were almost completed and called on her workers to spread red silk cloths east of the city, to give the impression of impending sunrise. Sangkuriang was fooled, and upon believing that he had failed, kicked the dam and the unfinished boat, resulting in severe flooding and the creation of Tangkuban Perahu from the hull of the boat.

and I was there on August, 25, 2012..

So I want to apdate new photos about my trip last day..
