Indonesia has many nature spots to enjoy during New Year’s Eve. So, what are you waiting for? Here are 4 places to go to enjoy nature during New Year’s Eve.
1 | A Sailing Trip to Labuan Bajo in Flores, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT)
Inspired by 80 little islands, the fishermen town of Labuan Bajo is a fundamental point for vacationers who wish to explore magnificent landscape and beaches nearby.
Sail across the sea using rented Ship from Labuan Bajo to well-known attractions like Padar Island and Pink Beach and observe your New Year’s Eve there. You will not only be mesmerized by the clear blue sea water and green islands throughout your journey, but also by the opportunity to meet a”living dinosaur,” the Komodo Dragon. The Komodo, locally called Ora, is now protected at the Komodo Island National Park where tourists are welcome to observe the ancient lizards in its own natural habitat.
2 | Glamping in the Lodge Maribaya in Bandung, West Java
Glamping (glamorous camping) in the Lodge Maribaya camping floor on Jl. Maribaya at Cibodas, Lembang, Bandung will result in an unforgettable yearlong adventure, regardless of the lack of fireworks since they tend to spark a fire in the chilly pine forest.
The Lodge Maribaya was initially set up as an outbound region named “The Lodge Earthbound and Adventure Park” in 2005. In 2016, its primary business shifted to the glam tent for lease hotel and started the glamping vacation trend.
The pumpkin-like tents are comfy to sleep in since every one of these is equipped with single or queen size beds, electricity supplies, lamps, electricity outlets, and heating fan. These are the “luxuries” you can have while camping in the woods. You are free to choose from three types of tents available, namely single occupancy, double discuss, and triple share. Do not sweat the cold weather because The Lodge Maribaya provides hot water inside every shared bathroom.
3 | A Festive Celebration with Nature in Dieng, Central Java
Located at 2,200 meters above sea Level, Dieng is the maximum plateau in Central Java. On regular days, tourists visit Dieng for its calm ambiance and chilly weather that help relieve stress.
But if you visit the place on New Year’s Eve, you may find more than two outdoor celebrations, for example, dangdut music stage and poem recital hosted by the locals. As the clock hit midnight and trumpets blare, fireworks and paper lantern will light Dieng’s sky. Local guesthouses and homestays are affordable choices if you want to spend more time in Dieng.
4 | A Getaway to Thousand Islands in North Jakarta
If you are in Greater Jakarta Region and don’t have enough days, but still want to escape the concrete jungle to observe New Year, only visit the Thousand Islands (or Seribu Archipelago)
The Thousand Islands includes small islands located miles away from the shore of North Jakarta. Just outside of Jakarta bay’s dark brackish sea, Thousand Islands’ clear turquoise sea water is waiting to surprise you. There are several islands, which are well-known because of their lovely beaches and underwater ecosystem, namely Tidung Island, Pramuka Island, and Macan Island.
Midnight and snorkeling in the morning afterward. It is almost surreal to think that you are still at the Big Durian.
To reach those islands, you need to sail with either a traditional boat from Kali Adem Port in MuaraAngke or a speedboat out of Marina Port in Ancol, North Jakarta. The estimation time arrival varies depending on which island you are going to visit.
