Or Ujung Kulon National Park. Situated 6 hours ride from Labuan [from the intersection Carita/Anyer - Labuan]. You can find the rhinos here, padi field, rainforest, beach and Isles of Peucang, Panaikan, Handeuleum and Honje. Here are several important plantations and animals at Ujung Kulon:* Animals: Banteng [Bos Javanicus, Rusa [Cervus...more
Trying local food always a great experience for me :) Here, I hear locals fave called "sate bebek" [diced duck skewered onto thin bamboo and grilled]. I think it's becomes my fave too, but grilled duck [whole!!!] called bebek bakar also delicious :) Bebek bakar with fresh veggie, steam rice and sambel trasi.more
Many seafood resto are available along Jalan Raya Anyer - Carita. Choose by your own; Chinese style, grilled, boiled, etc. And all of them are fresh guaranteed [hmmm, yum yumm!!!] But, the most fave I had at Anyer are seafood at Resto Kembang Sari and home-made by my good friends Christ Indria and his wife Linda. Kembang Sari can be so memorable...more
Well, hang-out with my friends here then we're going to the beach and finding the fullmoon. Felling blue ... someone is outta there, I don't know him yet :) But will find a way someday [duhhhhhhhh!!!!]
Dress Code: Casual
Even 'separated' by tollway with Banten Lama and Banten, people of Cilegon, Anyer and Carita also Bantenese. Carita and Anyer are parts of Banten Province. Old Baduy villages can be reached from Anyer also. Speaking a bit Sundanese will be nice here :) The people are friendly and well-informative if you ask about the directions to tourists spots.
Even small, Cilegon is an industrial city. Beware with containers and trucks during the trip Jakarta to Anyer/Carita. Meanwhile in the down town, you can find so many motorcycles and angkot [mass transportations] everywhere. Sometimes they're driving fast and not using signlamps.more
Luggage and bags:
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sarung [saroong], swimsuit, t-shirt, short pants, sandals, hat
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Private medicine
Photo Equipment: Digital camera will be great
Miscellaneous: * This is a picture of my 'private' sawung nearby Pantai Anyer. Open lounge, just bamboo for relax [and sleep, hahahaha], woww, what a simple world at that moment!
Really, it's trully off the beaten path, since unfamilar among the visitors who take a trip to Anyer, Karangbolong, Carita, Merak, Labuan and Ujung Kulon National Park! It's happened to me also .... sigh :)
Salt water, banana boats, jet-ski [at Christ and Linda home], seafood and young coconut [Frans' resto] then sunset [Karangbolong] and lighthouse [Anyer]
Fondest memory: Something special that I will not forget about Anyer is ... my vacation among Indonesian sportsmen like Hendriansyah [road racer number 1 in my country, which sitting on my left side] and Irwan Ardiansyah [motocrosser number 1 in my country, on my right side] at 2001. We went jet-ski, swimming, playing pee-wee, trekking and playing frisbee together. Then I drove a city car which was very small for 6 of us! And since the wind blowing soooooo hard, I can't use the braking pedals as good as usual, so 5 of the guys have to run and help me out of car before plunged nearby the small pier at the backyard of Christ Indria's home, hahahahaha :)
