Jl. Raya Bromo, Wonotoro, Sukapura, Probolinggo, Jawa Timur 67254, Indonesia
The main draw in Bromo, on the island of Java in Indonesia is sunrise at Mt. Bromo. However, having stayed at the modern-yet-luxurious guest house: Java Banana, I can now safely say Mt. Bromo isn't the only reason to visit Probolinggo. Java Banana...

Wonokitri, Ledok Sari, Tosari, Pasuruan, Jawa Timur, Indonesia
It's a trek that brings thousands of visitors to Indonesia every year. Wake up when it is still dark, ride in a jeep over unkept dirt roads, sleep-closed eyes barely taking in the throngs of vehicles, horses and animals that compete for space on...

Wonokitri, Ledok Sari, Tosari, Pasuruan, Jawa Timur, Indonesia
The trip took a plane, a bicycle, a train, a minivan, a jeep and a horse! Ok, so it didn't take a rocket but might as well. And waiting for the sunrise hopeful that the clouds would lift and reveal this majestic scenery is probably as close as...

Tourists would go with jeeps and go straight down and arrive in front of the volcano—where they could take horse rides up to see the sulfur volcano—but I took a motorcycle ride from the other side, where we had to go through forests with wild...

Mt Bromo, Area Gn. Bromo, Podokoyo, Tosari, Pasuruan, East Java, Indonesia
Bright and early, just before the sun comes up over Mount Bromo, Mount Semeru and Mount Batok, with ample rolling fog and an epic eruption for good measure. We climbed Mount Penanjakan in our Toyota 4x4 pre-dawn in the headlights of some 1,200...

Bohorok, Timbang Lawan, Bohorok, Kabupaten Langkat, Sumatera Utara, Indonesia
The touristic small town of Bukit Lawang is one of the best places to access the Gunung Leuser National Park in order to observe orangutans (Pongo abelii) in Sumatra. The village has different options for accommodation. We stayed at the Eco Lodge,...

Jalan Bendahara, 75100 Melaka, Malaysia
A beautiful postcard from the center of the old city in Melaka, Malaysia. The trishaws are more for tourists than they are public transportation. I recommend simply walking around the old city instead. Insiders tip: Melaka is definitely worth the...

Jalan Kampung Hulu, Kampung Dua, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia
My travel companion wasn’t incredibly excited about our hike out to the island’s floating mosque. I’m not sure why; there’s nothing quite as enjoyable as a 12km hike when you’re weighed down by a couple hundred pounds of camera gear. Interesting...

75200 Malacca, Malaysia
Every Friday and Saturday night, the main road in Melaka's Chinatown—Jonker Street—hosts a happening night market that's popular among locals and visitors. Besides its energy and over-the-top karaoke sessions, the main reason to come is for the...

Penang Hill, Penang, Malaysia
If you're in Penang, make sure to take time to head over to Penang Hill. Boasting a few sites of it's own (such as an Owl Museum, a Temple, Mosque and restaurant), the real treat is the view. When we made our way up, the clouds had engulfed us...

Padang Tengku, Pahang, Malaysia

Penang Hill, Penang, Malaysia
You'll find it in the guide book, but there's probably no better view of Penang than from the top of Penang Hill. Check the schedule beforehand (we wish we had) to catch the first train in time for sunrise. (There's a pretty easy bus that takes...
