Must go places in Osaka are....

My last trip to Japan ends in Osaka. It's another big city but with a refreshing vibe compare to Tokyo which look like just any other big city. Osaka can be compared as the Busan of South Korea, if you ever tried to visit Busan, where the people here have a more straightforward personalities, and it's the city where the food is so famous, and last but not least are the city which located near the beach and ocean. =D 1. Osaka Castle Before visiting Osaka, I've been staying for few days in Kyoto, and have seen quite a lot of ancient palace, houses, and ancient stuffs, so when it's time to visit the Osaka Castle, I've lost my interest to wandering inside, so I decided to watch from afar, and just take some relaxing time in the park nearby where I can see Osaka Castle from the distance. =D
2. Namba & Shinsaibashi District In this Namba & Shinsaibashi District (the district located next to each other), basically you can resolved anything in Osaka. This is the d…

Brutal Attack in Busan, South Korea!!

Sometimes ago, South Korea has been viral for the brutal attack which happened in Busan. The victim is 14 year old, while the attackers are around the same age, and the youngest is said to be a 13-year old female student o_O". WOW! They beat her up with soju bottles, chair, and some blunt objects and they even take a picture of her after getting beaten up and the attackers send the picture to their friends and bragged about it. The attacker's action is being captured by the CCTV in the area though. Meanwhile, after taking her daughter to the hospital, the victim's mom decided to take a picture and put it online through a facebook post to gain attention of a lot of people. Because this was actually the second attack, and when they report for the first attack, the Busan police just brushed them off and didn't even give any response. Therefore, this time the victim's mom take the matter on her own hand and decided to gain netizen's attention in order to get just…

[Review] on The King's Woman

Since the Korean Drama has been very disappointing lately. There are no good K-Dramas to watch lately, so I started to drooling over Chinese Drama titled the 'Princess Agent' which is played by the super famous Chinese actress, Zhao Li Ying, but again the drama is so disappointing with the lack of acting skill of the main actor, then a confusing story line which gets us to no where, and an end which ended without any conclusion at all! Then, I stumbled into this drama, which just started to air like 3 weeks ago, and still have another 30 episodes to go. Despite the cliche plot just like every other Chinese ancient imperial palace drama, this drama is likeable. At first I started to watch because the main girl, Dilraba Dilmurat, is super pretty and the trailer which has been go on like weeks is super awesome. The stories is about love stories of King of Qin and this pretty girl, which of course a fictional story. If you don't know who he is, King of Qin is the one who conq…

What to do in Kyoto? (2)

You might want to start the other day by traveling to Nijo Castle, which is a place for a Shogun lived during Edo period. It is the place where the first shogun of the period, Tokugawa Ieyasu lived. Here, not only you get to roam around the palace to see how the palace looks like, they even demonstrate various rooms to let you see what does a Shogun daily routine looks like. You can let your imagination flew back to the Edo period, imagining you were the one who visit the Shogun at that time. But too bad the rooms for demonstrating the daily routine cannot be photograph. T-T Aside from the building where Shogun's daily routine takes place, you also be able to walk around the garden, and some kind of square-shaped pool which surrounds the main building inside the castle. The weather was nice for a walk when I was there. And, you will be able to find some hidden tea house cafes around this garden area, as well as a rest area and toilet area. From here, you can take buses which will…

What to do in Kyoto ? (1)

Tokyo is just like any other big cities around the world, high skyscrapers building, crowded street, busy schedules, traffic here and there, but Kyoto give you a very different vibe. Where Tokyo people walks and moves very fast, Kyoto people tends to take it slow and seems more relaxed. If you plan to stay in Kyoto for a few days, I would recommend you to find some place around Kyoto JR Station area, since it will be the best choice to get to trains (though you won't use much train around Kyoto), buses, and food, because there's a lot of mall surrounding the station with a food court inside.

They have a high end brand shops, as well as cheap but pretty cloths stores underground as well. You can also rent a bicycle to move around if you don't feel like taking trains or buses as well, but only if you know your road well. When Tokyo is famous for its modern and metropolitan lifestyle, Kyoto is famous for its historical and traditional value. You can find lots of old historic…

Japan Travel : Must Know~!

So, I'd finally got a chance to go to Japan during last month vacation. My first time going to Japan and I decided to do a backpack traveling. With traveloka, agoda, air bnb and some other traveling mobile applications, I've got no problem at all in finding the tickets and making hotel reservations for my trip. But, then what I found most confusing is when I had to choose which transportation card should I get so that I can have the most economic and efficient way of traveling around the city. Backpacking is all about saving money, economic and efficient anyway right? LOLZ!
1. Making hotel reservation through AirBNB Things could be a little bit tricky here, some housing pictures might have been edited and you might come to disappointment when you look at the real thing. The only thing you'll have to take note here is that the standard of the room size could be very different for Japanese and us, Indonesian. =D So if you're traveling by 6 people (I traveled with my fam…

The next place we visit in Guizhou Province, to be exact located in Anshun, is Huangguoshu National Park. Okay, so what is the connection between the national park and the monkey king series?
Since in this national park, there's quite a few site attractions you can see, the first thing you'll get to visit is Luo Si Tan waterfall, which located in the national park. In the entrance to the first waterfall, you will be able to notice these statues.
Those are the main characters from Journey to The West~! You have Sun Wu Kong, Zhu Ba Jie, the Monk and Wu Jing. Well, the reason is to give a memorial statue, since it is said that they take a lot of scene in this area.
Especially, nearby the area above, which is also our first destination of the national park, the famous Luo Sitan Waterfall. ^^ Beside the waterfall, there'…
