Indonesia Beyond Bali (Part 2): Where to Go and What to See in Indonesia (That Are NOT Bali)

Hi everyone! 😀

FYI, I had to postpone my Java-Bali-Gili trip due to some family matter to September. And for those who don’t know, ironically I’m an Indonesian who’s never been to Bali. So yes, the trip is going to be my first time touching down on the island of gods. Or Pulau Dewata, as we Indonesians dub the island.

Anyway, you’ve probably read my previous post that was published last week in Indonesia’s 74th Independence Day. Well, this post is gonna be the second part where I’ve compiled the list of recommended places to visit in Indonesia… Those that are NOT Bali.

I mean, as an Indonesian myself, I’m so sick of ignorant travelers who think of Bali as the whole country and not just a small province in a country called Indonesia. So, what kind of places do we have this time? Let’s check out!

Hi everyone! 😀

Back again in the $10 series to explore the world within the budget this week. And this week, we’re going back to India to see what you can do in one of the cities there. Anyone could guess which city we’re gonna talk about this week after we covered Kolkata a couple of months ago?!

Indonesia’s 74th Independence Day: Indonesia Beyond Bali, Where to Go and What to See Around the Country

As an Indonesian blogger who mainly writes about travel, I often encountered fellow travel bloggers who would list Bali among the name of countries in Southeast Asia like Malaysia or Singapore. That, my friends, has become my own pet peeve ever since.

Like, seriously… There were times when I feel like I want to question them whether they even notice the name of the country as a whole, and not just Bali.

So, it’s the 17th of August and for those of you who don’t know… It’s the independence day of Indonesia. The 74th as we declared our independence in 1945.

And for today’s post, I’ve teamed up with some fellow bloggers who knew better than THAT, we’re gonna talk about the places that are worth visiting in Indonesia. The places that are NOT just Bali. The places that would show you the diversity in the country, more than just a tiny island called Bali. 😉
