THE best holidays are the ones where you have your loved ones with you. My time in Indonesia has been an unforgettable experience; it is practically the best trip I have taken so far. There’s so much you can do, all you need is some creativity and imagination.
I enjoy taking selfies and most of the time, the best selfie pictures are the ones with great background scenery, such as orange- tinged sunset over the Indian Ocean at Tanah Lot, or mountain and lake scenery at Kintamani and Bedugul.
Bali is the perfect place for that as it has one of the most beautiful landscapes in Asia. It blends spectacular mountain scenery and beautiful beaches with warm and friendly people, a vibrant culture and out of this world resorts. This is a miraculous island indeed, for after decades of popularity, Bali continues to amaze both local and international visitors alike.
Let’s selfie at Bali:
Celebrate your romance at Lombok:
If you are looking for a memorable place to celebrate your wedding anniversary, Lombok has much to offer couples seeking a romantic getaway. And believe me, I know, I just celebrated Valentine’s Day there.
Lombok is known for its magnificent South Sea cultured pearls grown in pristine waters around the island. Lombok’s woven cloths are the best as are its pottery.
For seafood lovers, enjoy succulent grilled fish and crabs freshly caught from the sea
Take a leisure stroll at Jogja:
My husband and I really love nature and the outdoors and we jumped at the chance to travel to Jogja when we heard there are many archaeological and pilgrimage sights to visit there – all 25 of them. Pay a visit to the Unesco World Heritage site of Prambanan and Borobudur temples or simply take a leisurely stroll along Malioboro street for bargain hunting.
I absolutely love it when I get a great deal when I’m shopping for my favourite things, and Bandung is a shopping paradise unlike any other. Bandung is a town that offers great promise for shoppers.
You may be overwhelmed with the large number of factory outlets scattered along the street of Dago, Riau, Cihampelas and Setiabudi. Here you can shop to your heart’s content and grab famous brands, trendy fashion and a lot more. Unlike the real Paris though, the clothes here are surprisingly

Be adventurous at Mount Bromo:
If you are the adventurous type, like us, you would want to take a trip to Mount Bromo – an active volcano situated in Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. This is a place even Indiana Jones would love. Journey on a jeep through the winding mountain road and stroll along the sand sea at the foot of Mount Bromo.
Thrilling at Lake Toba:
Journeying to North- Sumatra regions is an experience of the beautiful nature.
You will be amazed with its lush green countryside and mountain scenery. Lake Toba is one of the awesome natural wonders of the world. This is a crater lake so enormous it has an island almost the size of Singapore in its centre.
At over 1,145sq km, and a depth of 450m, Lake Toba is actually more like an ocean. This is the largest lake in South- East Asia and one of the deepest lakes in the world. You may take a boat trip on the lake and spot something truly memorable.
Experience buzzing Jakarta:
Jakarta is a buzzing metropolitan city that never sleeps. It’s the best place to enjoy the nightlife. I really love trying all the different local and international cuisines there. The restaurants and cafés always have something unique to offer.
Honeymoon at Bali and Lombok:
Picturesque landscapes and mesmerising scenery as far as the eye can see are just some of things you can expect to discover at Bali and Lombok. Honeymooners spending that special time there will tell you how magical these two places can be. Bali enchants with its dramatic dances and colourful ceremonies, its arts and crafts, its luxurious beach resorts and exciting night life.
The isle of Lombok also offers a remarkable sight. With divine beaches, the majestic Mt Rinjani and spectacular marine life to discover, the island has no shortage of attractions both in and out of the water.
These two exotic islands have much to offer, from inspirational spirituality to fine dining, which are perfect destinations for your honeymoon.
