Karangasem Trip

Sidemen, Selat and Tianyar may sounds unfamiliar to you. Perhaps you heard about Candidasa, Amed and Tulamben, right?

Duta So7 performs on Soundrenaline 2015 Bali

Before September ends, we would like to share our concert experience this month. We went to a music festival in Uluwatu called Soundrenaline. The event was held on September 5th and 6th. A daily pass for one day is IDR 75,000 and two days is IDR 100,000. We were lucky enough to receive free tickets from Hera’s friend who work for a company that creates this event. We joined for the second day because I wanted to watch WOLFMOTHER, less famous than I thought Australian rock band.

Two days in Tana Toraja

Tana Toraja (Tator) is a unique travel destination, located in the South of Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is about 8 hours driving from Makassar airport. This mountainous region saw its touristic attendance increased in the early 2000s after the Bali bombing. Until today, Tator remains an alternative holiday destination, original, less crowded with magnificent landscapes. We had the chance to visit from July 19th to 21st, 2015.
