Indonesian cuisine is often popular with visitors since the dishes rarely reserve bad surprises. Often made from rice or noodles, Indonesian dishes are not too spicy. In fact, the Sambal, a paste of chili and different spices, is often placed on the side of your plate, so you always have the choice to make your […]

Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and its archipelagos is the largest in the world. If Bali is the most acclaimed destination by tourists and Java and the Gili islands attract more backpackers, the country also has other islands that have remained 100% authentic, such as Sumatra, which is full of […]

Indonesia is a vast country, the 15th largest in the world and includes many islands. Depending on the length of your trip, and because tourists can get visas of one month maximum, it will require difficult choices to explore its beautiful beaches, underwater wonders, unique wildlife such as the Orang -Outan or Komodo Dragon, countless […]

Pulau Weh Island, in the far north of the island of Sumatra, has everything that defines an island paradise: turquoise and transparent water, bungalows with amazing views of the sea for about 100,000 Rs (7 euros !), a rich underwater life that it is already possible to admire just by snorkelling,  white sandy beaches and […]

With Batak houses lining on the coast of the small island Samosir, Lake Toba is a magical place (like its mushrooms, which are apparently legal and even offered on the menu) and a perfect place for relaxation. A destination of hippies, as you could figure it out, perfect after a trek in the jungle of […]

There are only two places in the world where you can see orangutans: in Bukit Lawang, Sumatra (Indonesia) and Borneo (Malaysia). A trek through the jungle in search of orangutans is of course a must during any adventure in Sumatra. It was unforgettable, the highlight of our trip! HOW TO GET TO Bukit Lawang? From […]

Going to Ijen Crater (Kawah Ijen) was the most memorable experience of our trip to Indonesia. We started the climb at 8am. It lasts 1h30 and is quite difficult because the road is very slippery and steep but it is really worth it. Not only for the scenery, the lake in the crater has an […]

Sri Lankan cuisine is tasty and deliciously spicy. If you want to eat in local places, you need to like chili cause the food is generally very spicy, even more than in India. But if this is not the case, don’t worry, there are also many dishes without chili and most tourist restaurants adapt their […]

Unawatuna is for sure our favorite beach in Sri Lanka as it has everything to attract backpackers: a nice beach, a relaxed and funky atmosphere, many restaurants and hotels overlooking the beach (often too close to the sea by the way), small busy streets lined with restaurants and shops and… rare thing in Sri Lanka, […]

Few tourists venture on the east coast of Sri Lanka, and that’s even better! The Trincomalee region is more authentic, with its almost deserted beaches, lively and colorful Hindu temples, and Pigeon Island, not to be missed to snorkel and see sharks (not dangerous course)! I recommend to spend at least two days, ideally. HOW […]

Kandy is the second largest city in Sri Lanka after Colombo. Very lively, the city is built around a large artificial lake and is particularly known in the Buddhist world for its Temple of the Sacred Tooth. It is a very pious and conservative city, and therefore not very festive in the night (for party, […]

The Temple of Dambulla is a must if you love Buddhas (the temple is composed of five large caves which are filled with Buddha statues, risk of overdose!) but it’s also worth it for its numerous monkeys, its horribly kitsch entrance gate or its magnificent view once you reach the top. Visit the temple of […]
