my travel to Indonesia
Collected by Marina Galuszka
Jimbaran, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia
Bali sometimes gets an unfair review as being an overhyped and overly-touristed exotic destination. On the contrary, my husband and I enjoyed our three weeks there immensely. We divided our time between unassuming, coastal Jimbaran and Ubud (of...
Lake Maninjau, Tanjung Raya, Agam Regency, West Sumatra, Indonesia
This is what I think of when travel comes to mind. I think untrammeled territory, wide open country, bits and pieces of the world I've never seen before, people doing things I didn't know they still do or ever did, and a big, booming landscape....

Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
Crowds may swarm upon it daily from sunrise onwards, but exposure hasn’t dulled the impact of the largest religious monument in the world. Commissioned by King Suryavarman II in the 12th century as the centerpiece of the mighty Khmer empire,...
Bahnhofstrasse 25, 7002 Chur, Switzerland
I didn’t even realize that the Bernina Express scenic train journey was on the UNESCO World Heritage list until I arrived at the small northern Italian town of Tirano to start the trip. There are several different routes from which travelers may...
Via San Giovanni Vecchio, 89, 75100 Matera MT, Italy
I'm not one to skip breakfast, especially in Italy, where thoughts of cappuccino, pastries, and local ham tend to rouse me early from slumber. But on my first morning at the Hotel Sant’Angelo, in the old quarter of Matera, I was having a hard time...
Sidemen, Karangasem Regency, Bali 80864, Indonesia
When in Bali I skip the beach and head straight to the breathtaking rice terraces of Eastern Bali to experience nature in all of her green glory: Sidemen Valley. This is old Bali, unaffected by the influx of tourism—a landscape of multi-hued...
Pengambengan, Negara, Jembrana Regency, Bali, Indonesia
Beautiful, ornate fishing boats adorned with the images of Hindi goddesses dock in the small fishing village of Pengambengan, near Negara, in western Bali. The boats work in pairs; one responsible for fishing while the other hauls the catch. It’s...
Sayan, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Strap on a helmet, grab some friends and let the awesome guides at Banyan Tree Bike Tours show you a side of Bali you'd never see on your own. Take a ride through rice paddies, where the ducks do all the work (ok, not ALL the work, but they do...
Tanjung Aru, 88100 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Get ready for your jaw to drop. Tanjung Aru Beach, also known as First Beach, is the type of place people go to take it all in. They literally line the shore with camera in hand to see one of the greatest shows on Earth - a sunset in Borneo. Even...
Kolombong/Bdc Industrial Estate, 88450 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Sabah | Borneo From behind the door we could hear a tribe of men yelling – something like a war cry. The gate swung open, about 10 headhunters eyed us as they walked by, spears in hand. They spoke in some tribal language and even got in our face...
Gaya Island, Sabah, Malaysia
As enchanting as sunrises are, sunsets are truly bewitching. That unique moment when the sun disappears below the western horizon is truly exceptional when you share it with someone special. Experiencing the vibrant colours painted across Mother...
89300 Ranau, Sabah, Malaysia
For someone who is terrified of heights, being 41 meters from the ground on a rope ladder, is not a way I'd normally pass my time. However, for this view, I made an exception. While the main attraction at Poring Hot Springs, in Kinabalu National...
Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens, Pusat Bandar Kota Kinabalu, 88000 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
If you love exploring markets, like I do, Kota Kinabalu's Central Market is not to be missed. Located on the busy waterfront, the Central Market is a riot of colourful produce. Here you can find dozens of varieties of bananas, prickly rambutan,...
