Tips for success traveling in Indonesia
Traveling to Indonesia is a must for person who seeks to find great adventure in their live.
I really like traveling, and thanks to God, I have been experiencing traveling and visiting to several countries around the world.
When I was small I accompanied my father who was a diplomat to many countries among others German, Holland, China, Argentine. In Argentine we watch Gauco who wore traditional Argentinian cowboy with boots and holding a bird catcher in his hand. I love eating the delicious lomo meat.
On our way back from Argentina, we stopped by at Los Angeles, Disney Land and Hollywood, Beverly Hills Hawaii Honolulu where we saw the Beautiful Waikiki Beach. We stop over at Brazil Rio de Janeiro where we watch the Big Statue of Jesus at the top of the mountain, and walk along the copacabana beach. We also visited Tokyo Japan where we enjoyed drinking tea ceremony.
The Publisher also have been to Singapore which is a beautiful clean country and well organized. Singapores is famous with its Sentosa Island and the butterfly park. I also experienced going to Mecca, Jeddah, and Dubai.
In the Year 2005, me and my family travelled to Holland, German, Italy, Swiss, French for 21 days where we went by euro rail train. We bought the euro rail ticket from Indonesia.
We then reserve hotels when we arrived at each places, where we used to stop by the travel information (TI).
Based on the above travel experinced, we noticed that every country has its own uniqueness and beautiful culture and sights.
TRAVEL TO INDONESIA
Well, in Indonesia I have been traveling to Kalimantan, Sumatera ( the Beautiful Toba Lake, and its Batak Calender), Bangka, Irian or Papua, Yogyakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Bali, where each city has its own beautiful view, specific culture and nature.
Well, if you want to know how are the minds of the Indonesians are to Foreigners. They really are friendly and most welcome to all foreigners who came to Indonesia.
However, to make your trip to become a success travel you have to understand the warmth, and most welcome people of Indonesia with their smiles and hospitalilty.
The keys to succeed in attracting or capturing the kind attention from the Indonesians are, by talking and speaking to them and say Apa Kabar or How are you ? It will for sure brake the ice communication and shall establish a friendly relationship with them.
The most common Indonesian are used to communicate each other with their hearts, and feelings even among themselves.
So we have to remember, that Indonesians regardless of their ethnics and belief system, usually communicate each other with their hearts, smiles, hospitality just like most of the Argentinian as well as the Italians are.
I am fully aware that foreigners are sometimes more of a an individualistic person.
Thus, if such foreigner who travels or visits Indonesia keeps himself or herself individualistic and closed, the common individuals in Indonesia may capture this kind of attitude as being not warm and sort of arrogant person,. This is actually not intended by the foreigner ?.
If foreigners tries to show warmth and easy with their smiles and hearts, the Indonesian people will response happily and will be mostly welcome such foreigner.
They will consider that such person is willing to accept and appreciate the culture and warmth of the Indonesian people whose language are shaped and influenced with their hearts.
By such above attitude, I will assure you that as a foreigner who visits Indonesia, you will be most appreciated and welcomed by the general common people of Indonesia. This will make your trip and travel to Indonesia to become a success story to be brought to your home places which will last long with sweet memories. This will bound ties between you and the Indonesian common people.
