After having a bad day at the Bella Vista Hotel, hm i suppose i dont recommend anyone to this hotel… i straight to Ketapang Hotel to pick up my Brother and sister and get a breakfast ( hm, it also too expensive breakfast — had to pay 80 rb for 3 bowls of Soto daging.. HAIZ…)… then my journey ends up at BALURAN
It was a rough journey since there is no asphalt road in Baluran. I say monkey, peacock and peacock and monkey and another monkey haha… but got a beautiful scene with the monkey… all are wild, an funny action.. you can say directly in my pics.. Ah, before you enter the Baluran, there is a Japanese Cave near to the gate, It is not big but so historical, you may find that Japanese used to get in the cave to protect themself
One monkey was staring at our car and look suspicious, when i put down the window, he looked like he was claiming his area and doesnt want me to stay closer.. hahaha… so funny. and another monkey pose like a boss…
and on the way to Surabaya, we stopped by at Paiton, the biggest electricity plant in Java, so if it is off, there will be a disaster in Java.
Anyway, enjoy the last pics…
The second day journey is about cocoa plantation and factory, Tobacco factory, and the bad news in Kalibaru. On the second day we go up to the hill and entering some plantation. at first we go to the rubber plantation, and directly to Cocoa plantation near Jember area. we didnt take any pics because the dont allow us to do so.
In tobacco factory, we just realize that Indonesia has been produce tobacco to exporting overseas. I just realize how rich Indoenesia should be with those kind of ability, but where is the tax goes to??
Anyway… we stop by to Kalibaru and goes to Tirto Temanten. OMG it was a very beautiful waterfall.. you should see it yourself. the walk down is not as hard as the trip i went in Bali. i do think not many people know about this waterfall, because there are just only us in there.
After that, we went to PANTAI MERAH… oh oh, it as so virgin, i took some wonderful photo which looked like in Overseas…. There are lots of fisherman there… ah, i wish i have a fish catcher there and have lots of time to spend there, but the sun is so bright….. took a zip of Young Coconut in the shadow of a palm tree… imagine that… and if you can, just go there and see it for real
Once i heard that Lovina has a Dolphin, spontaneously it state in my agenda if i have another opportunity to go to Bali. Now, when i come to Lovina, darn… it was a very quite neighborhood… but still the dolphins already called my name….
When we arrived at the hotel, we asked the dolphin watching, it cost around Rp 100.000,- however since i already know the price from tripadvisor, so I go to the beach and ask the boat man there, and got Rp 60.000/ pax. WHAT a differences…..!!
We woke up at 6.00 and went to the sea… at first we didnt see many boats beside us. but when the sun comes, we counted around 20-25. And it was a low season….. Our boatman (nyoman – 0813 3840 5724) is very smart, he didn’t try to scare the dolphin so many times we found the dolphin swam beside our boat. After about 30 mins, we went back to the shore, the water was so clear so that we can see below the water.. i wish i have time for snorkling. .many colorful fish that you could find there.
Then, we finished the day by a 2,5 hour spa.. and watching the sunset in Lovina beach… how romantic.. and these are the picture….
