Review: Flying from Kertajati International Airport for the First Time (Is It Worth It?)

It’s amazing how long we all could procrastinate stuff with absolutely no reason at all. I mean, that’s what I’ve been doing since the past couple of weeks: procrastinating to write this post.

Still in the series of my last trip to Dieng and Bali, one of the highlights in my last vacation is that I finally got a chance to fly from the newest airport in West Java for the first time. Yup, after my cousin told us that he was hesitant to come to Bali just 2 days before the beginning of our trip, we just had to have a contingency plan. And that was through flying to Bali from somewhere in Java.

There were several flight options that we could have taken from either Central Java or West Java. However, we ended up booking the ticket from Kertajati International Airport for some reasons.

First of all, as a proud Sundanese, the biggest airport in West Java (and second biggest airport in Indonesia) seems like the best option for us. Not only is it closer to Bandung, but we were also curious on how this airport is.

The infamous airport has been controversial for way too many reasons. So, is it worth flying from Kertajati International Airport?

Hotel vs Airbnb: Why I’d (Most Likely) Choose Hotel over Airbnb for My Accommodation

First of all, I know you might have found a lot of similar posts about this topic on the internet. Well, that won’t stop me from writing this post anyway.

There’s some mixed opinion about which one is better for accommodation. I know some of my friends who would strongly recommend Airbnb for a lot of reasons. Some even make their side income as the landlord to rent their property through the platform.

I know some other people who would still go for the conventional way to book a hotel room. Their reasons could vary, from being blatantly skeptical about staying at some random stranger’s property to just take the easy way in terms of choosing an accommodation.

As for me, despite the fact that I’ve got a lot of friends who have recommended Airbnb since a few years back, my first Airbnb experience wasn’t quite long ago. It was during my stay in Brunei sometime last year. After that, I also got a couple more Airbnb experience that led me to write this one.

And as you probably expect from the title of the post itself, I’d personally choose a hotel over Airbnb. Why? This is why I’m writing this post! 🙂

How To Stay Stunning When You’re Actually A Broke Traveler

Today, I just had a conversation with my high school friend and she told me that maybe I should post some tips and tricks about how to look great even when I’m broke during my travel. And honestly, it was a great idea since I kinda ran of ideas to write on this blog.

Before I start, this might not be the usual tips to travel for some female travelers but I’m quite sure this could be suitable for some others.

I know there are some people out there who will associate girls (especially those female solo travelers) on the road with girls who don’t give a fuck about their look.

The truth is, not all of us enjoy carrying backpack and sharing room with others.

Some of us, we want to have some space for us to do our make-up to feel good about ourselves. Even better, if we can also find some potential guys to date on the road.

So if you don’t mind to take things a little extra along with your humble lifestyle under the cover, this one is for you!

Review: Capsule by Container Hotel KLIA2

As visiting all 10 ASEAN country members by the time I hit 30 is on my to-do-list, in the past few years I genuinely take the advantage of low-cost carrier in the South East Asia to achieve my traveling goal.

I mean, I’m at that point where it gets somehow dilemmatic as using low-cost carrier means that I have to spend some time for transit in either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, but then using a full-service airline to fly within ASEAN could be really expensive. But well.

Given the fact that I’m in the love-and-hate relationship with Singapore, I honestly prefer to spend my transit time in Kuala Lumpur as the price there is relatively standard as per Indonesian pocket. It isn’t solely because I used to work for AirAsia that makes me choose AirAsia over any other LCC in South East Asia. *I no longer get paid for writing this, I swear!*
