Avoid Crowd While on Vacation

Avoid Crowd While on Vacation

Saat liburan datang, rasanya ingin mencari ketenangan dan suasana baru. Tapi apa daya, Anda harus berbagi tempat liburan dengan wisatawan lainnya. Bukan mustahil Anda bisa menghindari keramaian tersebut. Tamasya punya beberapa tipsnya.   · Cari Objek Lain Lupakan sejenak objek wisata popular, itu sama saja mendatangi langsung sumber keramaian. Kunjungi objek-objek wisata yang cenderung “diabaikan” banyak orang. Tidak ikonik? Mungkin saja. Tetapi dapat memberi pengalaman baru dan prespektif lain terhadap kota tempat Anda berlibur. · Lebih Awal Atau Lebih Lambat Tidak ada salahnya bangun sangat pagi supaya bisa menjadi yang pertama berada di lokasi wisata. Kerumunan wisatawan di pagi hari cenderung lebih sedikit, memudahkan Anda memandangi lingkungan sekitar tanpa lautan manusia. Bisa juga datang lebih lambat, ketika kebanyakan wisatawan sudah beranjak pulang.  · Tanya Penduduk Lokal Kebanyakan warga local tahu seluk beluk daerah setempat. Hal ini bisa Anda manfaatkan untuk memperoleh informasi dari warga local. Misalnya tempat-tempat menarik yang belum banyak dikunjingi, waktu-waktu terbaik mengunjungi sebuah tempat dan transportasi terbaik mencapai tujuan. Anda bisa memulainya dari resepsionis di hotel, namun jangan ragu bertanya pada orang yang ditemui di jalan. · Hotel Yang Tenang Usahakan untuk memilih hotel di area yang lebih tenang, biasanya terletak agak jauh dari pusat wisata. Memilih hotel bisnis boleh-boleh saja, mengingat hotel keluarga seringkali ramai dengan anak-anak. · Pilih Bandara Alternatif  Bandara utama seringkali penuh ketika musim liburan, membuat antrean panjang. Anda juga mungkin ingin menghindari yang satu ini. Cobalah mencari bandara tujuan lain yang dekat dengan kota tujuan. Memutar rute sedikit jauh tapi rasa tenang dan nyaman bisa diraih kan. · Tur Istimewa Kadang beberapa agen wisata menyelenggarakan tur spesial, di mana pesertanya mendapat perjalanan wisata eksklusif. Tur seperti ini memang memerlukan  biaya ekstra, sehingga tidak selalu menjadin pilihan utama.   Source : Majalah Tamasya Edisi Mei 2014 | www.majalah-tamasya.com

Lake Matano

Lake Matano

July 08, 2015

Indonesia’s beauty is no secret to the world. The islands are surrounded by a vast ocean teaming with exotic life. Dense jungles of strong tall trees are packed with hidden wonders. Towering mountains, deep in jungles, filling craters, atop mountains, there are lakes of all colors and sizes. Long road trips usually lead to the best places. Correct? It takes approximately 12 hours from Makassar, South Sulawesi, to reach Lake Matano, a natural lake located beside Matano Village. Matano itself means “wellspring” because the village has a well that flows continuously to the lake. With a depth of 590 m, it takes the title of the deepest lake in Indonesia and 10th deepest in the world. The lake is home to dozens of endemic fish and plants. This is because the lake is virtually isolated from other lake; it is even believed that 30 types of fish in Lake Matano are all derived from one species! This has attracted many scientists and observers to the lake. The water itself is extremely clear thanks to its remote location. Despite its depth, people can still see the bottom of the lake most of the time. Unbelievable! It is also calm, with almost no ripples to be seen. Visitors will be enchanted by the huge lake and the lush forest surrounding it. Gazing into the water, it is difficult to resist the temptation to jump right in immediately upon arrival! There are tons of activities to do on the lake from swimming and snorkeling to more serious water sports such as canoeing, rafting, water skiing, and even diving!   Source: Journey Indonesia
