Dunia Fantasi # Jakarta -Indonesia

One of my far away relatives, 姨姨 in Magelang, hold her son’s wedding party today in Jakarta. So me, my mom, one of my 姨姨,one of my 伯母, and also my brother’s fiance, go to Jakarta together to attend the wedding.

The wedding party located at Discovery Hotel and Convention Ancol, and they give us free room. Because the hotel located inside Ancol, and my brother’s fiance haven’t went to Dufan, a famous amusement park in Indonesia, so I decided both of us today’s plan is go to Dunia Fantasi while my mom and other’s go to shopping.

We rent a car for those who go to shopping. As usual, I always rent from PPM Car Rental, by Ms Jenny. I always trusted her company to rent a car while I’m visiting Jakarta.

Dunia Fantasi only located besides Discovery Hotel. So Me and my soon-to-be sister only need to walk for 5 minutes.

Dunia Fantasi entrance ticket cost IDR 250.000/pax because it’s Sunday. And for suggestions, don’t go to here on Weekend, because too many people in there. Some of them is some company outing group and they bring their family.

We ride Kora-Kora, Halilintar, and also Niagara. We queue to ride Ice Age, a new game, and it’s a long queue. We queue almost 2 hours. But when it will be our turn, something happened, and they close the game. What a waste.. T___T

For a game that child can ride, there will be a long queue when it’s weekend or holiday. But for some extrim one, like Halilintar, or Rajawali, there’s no queue. So, it’s better to go here while not holiday.

Ice Age

In the evening, we go back to hotel and prepare for the wedding party.

Jakarta to Bandung by Cipaganti Shuttle # Indonesia

From Jakarta, Me and my cousin drop by Bandung for 1 night to shopping. We rode Cipaganti Shuttle from Jakarta to Bandung.
At Jakarta, we decided to rode the shuttle from:

MANGGA DUA SQUARE ( MG-2 )
Jl Gunung Sahari, Mangga Dua Square, Lt GF, Blok A No 241-242
Telp. 021 6231 3227

to

BANDUNG TRADE CENTER ( BTC )
Jl Dr. Djunjunan No 143-149

It cost IDR 90.000/person.

The rode was smoothly. It’s raining when we are on the way.
But the driver seems not so kind enough. When he stop in the destination, we don’t know where it is, so we ask him. But he didn’t answer us, and just smoking. How rude of him. We are a little disappointed, because we are not local people. He should telling us, where is it, because our destination is BTC, and we didn’t see any BTC building in there.

Fortunately, we are near. So we rode taxi to our hotel.

The building was a little old, but for me, it’s comfortable enough.

From Jakarta to Changsha by Cathay Pasific — FZCJ Trip Day 01 # China

This trip is organized by my cousin’s friends and my cousin as the tour leader.
Fenghuang – Zhangjiajie – Chengdu – Jiuzhaigou (FZCJ) trip for 10th days, organized by Lumba-Lumba Tour & Travel Surabaya, with cost USD 2.980/pax (depart from Jakarta) by Cathay Pasific.

The additional cost:

  • China Visa: IDR 590.000/pax
  • Jakarta International Airporttax: IDR 150.000/pax

The price is quiet expensive because it’s high season and long holiday in Indonesia.

At 13:00, we depart using Damri Shuttle from Hotel Wisata to Adisucipto International Airport. It cost IDR 35.000/pax.

At 14:18 we arrive at Adisucipto International Airport Yogyakarta then proceed to check-in counter. 

We are flying with Garuda from Yogyakarta (JOG) to Jakarta (CGK).  Our flight is at 17:15-18:15 with rate IDR 505.000/pax. We arrived at airport too early, but because it’s Indonesia Big Holiday, we are affraid if there’s a traffic. So it’s better to go early than missing flight.

There’s a delay, we depart at 18:20, and arrive at Jakarta at 19:35. Then we go to International Departure to check our flight and we still can’t check-in yet.
Then, my other cousin that stay at Jakarta, take us to eat dinner at Smokey Ribs at PIK Jakarta.

At 23:00 we arrive at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Terminal 2 again, and when we check the flight time, there’s a notice that our flight to Changsa will depart at 4 o’clock. Actually, our flight time should be at 23:55 around that time. But earlier we got notice via sms that it’s already delay 2 hours become 13:55. And now delay again 2 hours become 15:55. 

We heard that there’s a big storm at Hongkong and surround and it makes our plane depart late from Hongkong to Jakarta. Not only our plane, but all of the plane got a delayed.

And the big problem is, we should arrive in Hongkong at 05:20. Then continue our flight at 09:15. But because this delayed problem, we will arrive in Hongkong at 09:20 which means we will missed our flight. The staff at counter check-in help us to call Hongkong Airport and she said, the staff at Hongkong Airport will give us option when we arrived there.

Then at 15:55, we depart to Hongkong. So this is the start of the longest departure, we spend almost 33 hours to depart haha..
