Tailor-made adventure tours
Good to know about your travel details while on a training. I did some leisure travel and booked my tickets through Enchanting travels for a custom travel experience to different destinations in India.

sadly, i have to agree on this..
thanks for commenting on my trip to Pelabuhan Ratu. Hate to admit, but yeah..you are right. That place has lost its charm and like i said on my entry, it's glory remains in the past. If it's not for a family trip , i wouldn't want to be there.

Pelabuhan Ratu
Pelabuhan Ratu - Queen of Ports. The Local Govt. little escapist, about road, transportation, the potential tourist places, the food stalls here and there at sea beaches etc. etc., but never forget collecting hefty entrance fee, parking fee etc. etc. It was a time, we could reach Pelabuhan Ratu in 2 and half hours from Jakarta. But now, oh my God to reach there, that may take 6 if your luck is good enough. Starting from Exit Ciwai the pain starts. So horrible so horrible I am sure the women going to give delivery a baby may be ... (not to describe). Heavy Aqua trucks, heavy sand trucks, careless angkots and some reckless small vans operating Bogor - Sukabumi - Bogor, and above all big big unexpected holes on road, factory exists full of karyawan/karyawati (Labors) and a que of Angkots (Small Vans) shall make you exhaust and give up before even you reach to Cibadak. The road condition is so bad, as if there is no father or mother to the natives. After you take a right hand side after Cibadak, the road is bad enough till Pelabuhan Ratu. If you are strong enough and at your young age, and got some brave may be you can enjoy the journey. But, if you are over middle age, Old Age better avoid this risk as sudden heart attacks may happen at any time! Specially woman under pregnancy, small children keep avoid this road starting from Ciwai till Pelabuhan Ratu. Once you cross Hotel Bayu amrata, suddenly you will see some batik wearing people trying to stop your vehicles to collect the fees for entering a tourist place. If you have guests, avoid Going to 4 star hotel over there standing high tall big but inside so bad carpets unwashed, all furniture gone not only old (Pity to see), Interior got brown/yellow, Toilets (Better not to bath) but tariff is more than Bali. Possibly no visitors, so no maintain. Go to any beach you have to pay per person tariff and then for your car parking fee minimum Rp.5000.00. Remember, avoid eating in seaside food stalls or if you like to eat ask first the price fast. Neither, surely you will be a looser. I remember one of my friend had to pay Rs. 80,000 just for a bottle of beer. I think more better and safe is Affordite, Rasuna club. Buy one, one free just for 20,000 Rp., There is a Cipanas Hotwater, and now the naturalness of the location is gone. Enter, you have to again start paying Pemdak. But, no maintenance of the River. Just I have a question, when the administration will open their eyes? If we go back to First president Seokarno time, he so much liked the place he usually give a visit to Pelabuhan Ratu, Stay in Samudera Beach to give homage to legendaries mystic queen Ny Ro Ro Kidul. The days are gone!! The beautifulness is gone! Only remain the memories of ours who had been visited there 10-12 years ago or before. I love Pelabuhan Ratu, Respect the legendary queen and a lots of appreciation to nature loving, well patience, beautiful Sundanese people and their tradition. Pelabuhan Ratu ofcourse a paradise but the guys false promise during Elections now make others compare Pelabuhan Ratu not less than a Hell!! Guys Come On... when we can do, let's do it...

@ Sri : sorry for the late reply..bary sempet buka lagi.. Anyhoo, untuk alamat lengkap Cibuni, saya sendiri kurang tau ya mbak..yang jelas dari Situpatenggang tuh masih agak jauhhh. waktu itu sewa ojek (biasanya tukang ojek pada tau kok semua kok di sana). Bisa naik ojek, but at your own risk ya..jalannya itu..ampunnn mbakk.. and kejadiannya sampai 2 dari 4 motor yang disewa ban nya pecah.. Soal pemandangan, terus terang enggak terlalu bagus, malahan kesannya mistis gitu...(mungkin ini kah yang di cari? ).
