Review: Dieng Cool Homestay, an Accommodation Around Dieng Plateau in Central Java

Hi everyone!

If you wonder why lately I rarely post any post that is significant to my rambles, then here’s the answer… In case you didn’t know, I was planning a family trip that started with a little chaos earlier this month. First, I was supposed to have a road trip from Java to Bali and Gili as I mentioned here.

But life is never perfect, especially when you plan to travel in a group. Just a week before the D-day, the company that was supposed to work in a project with me and my cousin had to cancel the collaboration as they decided to stop collaboration with content creators. That led to the cancellation of free boat ticket to Gili from Bali.

And just 2 days before we departed to Dieng, my cousin had an idea to cancel the rest of the trip since the collaboration with the brand no longer exists. I already booked the accommodation for 2 nights in Dieng Plateau, but I’ll share the rest of the story in a separated post.

Right now, I’m in the mood to share my experience staying in the accommodation we picked around Dieng Plateau, Dieng Cool Homestay. So, how was our stay?

What You Could Get in Nice for $10 – A Really Nice Way to Spend Your Day and Dollar in France

Hi, folks! ๐Ÿ™‚

You’d probably know the city as it is in the title of my recommended books to read during your travel. In case you didn’t know, the sassy book “Nice is Just a Place in France” is on the list of books that I’d recommend. And although the book is really not a book about travel, this piece written by Maureen from Life On The Mediterranean would have something to do with traveling.

So, how nice is Nice to travel with your $10? Check this one out!

What You Could Get in Beijing for $10 – Your First Glimpse in Mainland China

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€

After covering Hong Kong and Macao some time ago, I’m so excited when Jade and Kev from Two Tall Travellers reached out to cover the first city in mainland China that we’re gonna talk about: the one and only capital city, Beijing.

Speaking of which, since it’s $10 series, then I don’t know who needs to hear this but the currency in mainland China is renminbi and not yuan. And you’ll get a further explanation about this later in the post.

If you kinda mistake one with another, I’m not gonna blame you as you might adapt it from watching too many Chinese movies with subtitle. Like I did in the youth. #AsianProblems

So, what could you get in Beijing for $10? And how much is $10 USD in renminbi? Go check this out! ๐Ÿ™‚
