Weekend Tanpa Mall Series

Kota tempat saya tinggal saat ini penuh dengan shopping mall. Mungkin kelihatannya bagus karena menandakan perekonomian semakin maju, tapi mall-mall ini sudah menjamur terlalu banyak melebihi ruang umum lain yang tidak melibatkan komersial seperti taman dan perpustakaan. Orang-orang berkumpul di mall bersama teman-teman dan keluarga. Anak-anak sedari kecil sudah dibawa ke mall dan diperkenalkan dengan membelanjakan uang (consume) bukan dengan berkarya (produce). Mall memang cukup nyaman, sejuk dan ber-AC, tapi ada tempat kumpul lain bukan mall yang nyaman kok. Coba lihat negara Singapura yang sama persis cuaca panas nya dengan Jakarta, banyak shopping center tapi taman-taman nya juga seimbang jumlahnya dan nyaman untuk didatangi bukan cuma dilihat.

Saya dan keluarga agak jarang ke mall. Saya masih sering belanja sih (namanya juga emak-emak :p) tapi online, ga di depan anak saya. Trus kalau weekend ngapain dong? Ternyata banyak loh tempat-tempat keluarga non mall di Jakarta dan sekitarnya yang asik dan seru didatangi terutama buat anak-anak. Kebanyakan pengeluarannya jauh lebih murah daripada jalan-jalan di mall. Di blog ini saya akan sharing tempat-tempat non mall yang saya dan keluarga datangi saat weekend di seri Weekend Tanpa Mall (WTM). Semoga cukup bermanfaat buat keluarga lainnya.

Semua postingan di WTM series biss dilihat disini. Have a nice weekend!

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
