This theme park is very expensive and foreigners pay whole lot more than Malaysian which i think is discrimina ting. The waterattractions are ok, not that scary or sensantional, there are far better ones actuallly. For that price its too expensive and I wouldn’t return. The other parks are ok. Food is expensive and overall only fast food. People swim in regular clothes which is not allowed. I find that to be disrespectful according to the rules.

I was nicely surprised to see new connecting terminals quick trains. Good security and pleasant areas to wait. Carriage is spacious and modern. Not very busy during the day but maybe I was just on Airport at a specific time. It would be great if this train would connect each major part of Jakarta. Altogether big improvement and upgrade to existing Airport.

I had a great time with Sesawi Tour, who delivered a magnificent experience during this challenging period. The overall experience is one of a kind - the hosts know deep insights, as they are able to connect us directly to the artisans. The wooden mask was, for certain, pretty valuable as a takeout!

Deden and John both did a great job driving us to mount Ijen and guiding us to the top. Deden shared lots of knowledge about the environment and the miners. We talked personal stories along the trek up and down. All in all we had a wonderful time and we would love to visit Bromo with them in the future.

While its worth a day out and there is a lot to see and do (especially for kids) somehow it also feels like there is more potential that hasn't been reached. The actual floating market doesn't need a boat to get to, you can just walk it, and it's more like a large pond than anything else. There's plenty of crafts to buy and places to eat, plus train rides and rabbits and that sort of thing which kids would enjoy. Would recommend for about half a day.

This theme park is very expensive and foreigners pay whole lot more than Malaysian which i think is discrimina ting. The waterattractions are ok, not that scary or sensantional, there are far better ones actuallly. For that price its too expensive and I wouldn’t return. The other parks are ok. Food is expensive and overall only fast food. People swim in regular clothes which is not allowed. I find that to be disrespectful according to the rules.
