Cruise Singkat “Singapore of Java”, Cilacap-Indonesia

Tepat jam 19:00 Kapal Motor Jaya Sakti bergerak menginggalkan Pelabuhan Sleko dan melakukan cruise singkat selama 2 jam. Cruise berikutnya dengan kapal lain menyusul sekitar jam 20:00 sehingga kedua kapal ini akan berpapasan di laut.

Kapal akan bergerak ke arah selatan dari Pelabuhan Sleko. View pertama yang akan ditemui adalah kapal batubara yang sedang bersandar untuk keperluan bongkar muat.

Kapal Batubara

Kapal Batubara “Putri Sejati”.

Kemudian setelah melewati kapal ini, Gw bisa melihat bangunan milik PT. PUSRI:

Gula rafinasi

Unit Pengantongan Pupuk PT. PUSRI Cilacap

Di area sekitar sini juga tercium bau harum dan wangi, ternyata di belakang bangunan milik PT Pusri ini terdapat pabrik gula rafinasi yang merupakan asal muasal aroma harum yang Gw cium.

Kemudian kapal sempat melewati area eksekusi Lembaga Pemasyarakatan Nusakambangan yang tidak terlihat karena gelap gulita. Kemudian Kapal akan memutar arah dan bergerak menuju ke utara. Setelah melewati titik awal keberangkatan Penumpang akan disuguhkan Depot LPG Cilacap:

Depot LPG Cilacap

Depot LPG bersebelahan dengan kilang minyak PERTAMINA.

Kilang Pertamina

Kilang Minyak Cilacap milik PERTAMINA.

Di kilang minyak PERTAMINA inilah kapal akan berjalan sangat pelan, karena spot inilah yang tercantik diantara yang lain. Nahkoda juga memberi kesempatan kepada penumpang untuk mengambil foto sepuas mungkin.

Setelah selesai dengan spot ini maka berakhir pula cruise ini dan kapal segera kembali ke Pelabuhan Sleko.

Ya….itulah alur perjalanan cuise ini.

Perlu diketahui bahwa “Singapore of Java” Cruise ini adalah tur singkat malam minggu di Cilacap dengan frekuensi 2 minggu sekali. Cruise dimulai dari Pelabuhan Penyeberangan Sleko pukul 19:00 dan perahu akan berangkat setiap 1 jam. Cruise ini adalah ide dari Bupati Cilacap yang bertujuan untuk meningkatkan kunjungan wisatawan ke Cilacap. Dinamakan tour Singapore of Java karena view dari cruise ini mirip dengan salah satu sudut Singapore di saat malam.

Cruise ini sudah populer di Cilacap sehingga kapal biasa di carter oleh komunitas tertentu sehingga pengunjung perseorangan seperti Gw sering kehabisan bangku.

Gw sendiri beruntung bisa ikut cruise ini di pertengahan Maret 2018. Saat itu perahu sebetulnya sudah dibooking oleh komunitas gereja dari Solo, Jawa Tengah.

Tetapi karena malam itu adalah malam terakhir Gw di Cilacap, maka Gw tidak akan menyerah untuk bisa ikut cruise ini. Gw dengan gigih melobby staff penjual tiket Kapal Motor Jaya Sakti untuk bisa menjual 1 bangku tambahan buat Gw bagaimanapun caranya.

Dengan memelas, Gw bilang bahwa Gw datang dari Jakarta dan ini adalah malam terakhir berada di Kota Cilacap, maka si Ibu mulai terlihat kasian sama Gw dan setelah dia bicara dengan nahkoda kapal akhirnya Gw diperkenankan ikut cruise ini tapi harus berada di bagian belakang dekat petugas pengatur jangkar kapal karena tidak boleh mengganggu bangku yang sudah dipenuhi oleh komunitas gereja itu.

Dengan membayar Rp. 30.000 akhirnya Gw masuk ke kapal tanpa memegang tiket karena memang sebenarnya tiket sudah sold out…..Great Job, senang menjadi bagian dari cruise ini.

Eksotisme Nusakambangan, Cilacap, Indonesia

Begitu acara kantor selesai jam 13:00, Gw segera menuju ke Whiz Hotel Sudirman untuk bersiap diri menyeberang ke Nusakambangan. Rencananya Gw akan kesana esok hari tapi karena sangat penasaran, akhirnya Gw sehari lebih cepat ingin menginjak Nusakambangan.

Whiz Hotel Sudirman sendiri berjarak 3,7 km dari Pantai Teluk Penyu yang merupakan titik tolak penyeberangan ke Nusakambangan. Untuk menuju ke Pantai Teluk Penyu tidak repot kok, cukup 12 menit naik GO-CAR seharga Rp. 10.000.

Begitu sampai di Pantai Teluk Penyu, banyak tukang perahu menawarkan jasa penyeberangan ke Nusakambangan. Perahu “Rangga Ayu” yang Gw pilih dengan harga Rp. 30.000 untuk pulang pergi. Skenarionya adalah pemilik perahu akan mengantarkan penumpang ke Nusakambangan lalu dia akan kembali ke Pantai Teluk Penyu lagi.

Dia memberikan no handphone. “Kalau sudah puas jalan-jalan Nusakambangan, silahkan telpon saya ya mas, nanti saya jemput””, ujarnya.

Begitu turun dari perahu rasa penasaran mulai menyelimuti hati….ada apa didalam pulau ini?

Perjalanan masuk lebih dalam ke Nusakambangan pun di mulai…..

Berikut ini adalah pemandangan yang Gw jumpai di titik awal penjelajahan.

Jalan

Kiri AtasMemasuki pulau Nusakambangan, Gw harus melewati jalan kecil licin berbatu sehingga kecepatan jalan pun sangat pelan.

Kanan Atas: Jalanan bertebing

Kanan BawahGw juga menemukan jembatan bambu diatas sungai kecil yang surut

Kiri BawahGw juga menemukan batang pohon yang tumbuh melintang di badan  jalan

Terpeliharanya hutan di pulau ini terlihat dari banyaknya satwa liar yang masih terlihat seperti monyet hitam dan burung elang. Tidak perlu takut karena sepanjang perjalanan Gw  beberapa kali berpapasan dengan wisatawan yang menuju pulang.

Setelah berjalan 15 menit akhitnya Gw menemukan tanda yang mengarahkan Gw ke Benteng Karang Bolong dan Pantai Karang Pandan

BENTENG KARANG BOLONG

Kiri Atas: Benteng ini sangat terlihat kegagahannya ketika dilihat dari gerbang depan. Hanya saja bagian atas gerbang sudah banyak ditumbuhi tumbuhan perintis yang bisa mengancam keawetan bangunan.

Kiri Bawas: Pintu banteng bagian dalam. Tembok atas benteng bagian dalam ini juga ditumbuhi oleh pohon dan lumut.

Tengah: Dinding benteng bagian dalam sangat tebal.

Kanan: Bagian ruangan bawah tanah adalah sesuatu yang tidak memungkinkan di jangkau karena gelap dan lembab berlorong sempit. Gw mengurungkan masuk ke ruangan bawah.

PANTAI KARANG PANDAN

Melanjutkan perjalanan lurus ke depan mengantarkan Gw untuk menginjak indahnya pasir putih di bagian timur pulau ini. Pantai yang dipenuhi muda-mudi baik sekelompok teman main sampai pasangan yang sedang kasmaran.

Pantai Karang Pandan

Menikmati ciptaan Tuhan dengan duduk bersila, mendengarkan riuh rendah suara ombak menghantam batuan pantai, melihat aktivitas kapal-kapal besar yang sedang membuang jangkar dan menggenggam butiran lembut pasir putih. Menenangkan hati dan jiwa.

Sesuatu yang jarang Gw temukan di Ibu Kota.

 

Karena waktu sudah semakin sore dan menuju gelap , Gw putuskan untuk segera menepi dan kembali lagi ke Whiz Hotel Sudirman.

Kembali ke titik penjemputan, sambil menunggu perahu datang, Gw sempatkan relaksasi dengan minum teh hangat dan mendoan di warung. Sembari mengamati sang surya tenggelam meninggalkan malam.

Petualangan berakhir indah dan ditutup dengan sunset yang mempesona mata…..

Pantai Nusakambangan

I Love Indonesia………..

Purwojaya Train Jakarta-Cilacap, Indonesia

Starting from this 46th article, I will insert articles about the beauty of my beloved country, Indonesia. 

This trip was a duty trip from my office that was given by me a added value by traveling to Cilacap in the south of Java Island.

My trip was traveled by Purwojaya executive train. I issued its ticket through Traveloka web. Ticket price was Rp. 260,000 for departing and Rp. 315.000 for returning …. paid by my office….pretty nice.

tiket

The journey started from home at 19:00 using GO-CAR (online taxi) and arrived at Gambir Station at 20:30. After printed ticket at automatic ticketing machine, I waited in the south gate waiting room. PT. Kereta Api Indonesia (Indonesia’s railway corporation) applies rule that passengers could enter into platform on one hour before departure.

After purchasing a packet of sunflower seeds for accompanied me to wrote articles in my website. Finally at 21:30 I entered into platform by showing KTP and ticket to gate officer. I directly boarded into train because the train was waiting for passengers.

Seeing the coach space, It looks like an old coach, but it well-maintained coach. Salute for PT. Kereta Api Indonesia who continue to increase professionalism.

After the train ran about 30 minutes the caoch temperature began to cool …. very cold …. I purposely didn’t bring a jacket to minimize my backpack because I also had to carried 20 kg luggage and a roll up banner for the office event….very crowded.

Fortunately the on duty officer told to passengers that they would be given a blanket.….

I acquainted with lady at my leftside, she comes from Cilacap. So I asked about Cilacap tourism to her. He patiently answered and even showed his photographs at several tourist spots in Cilacap.

After she was sleeped, I began to wrote a article for my site….but it wasn’t this article, guys…. I write it when I travel to Jakarta from Bandung using LINTAS Travel.

Purwojaya train would stop at several major stations such as Bekasi, Cirebon, Purwokerto, Kroya, Maos and ended in Cirebon.

Around 05:00 the train arrived in Cilacap. Although Whiz Hotel Sudirman staff always called me because he waited to picked up me at Ssation parking slot, I spent 7 minutes to took some pictures of Cilacap Station in the morning.

And I forgot to captured Cilacap Station frontside because I rushed to the pickup car. But don’t worry gaes …. I captured it when returned to Jakarta 3 days later.
This is it ……

Stasiun Cilacap SiangCilacap Station which was originally built by Dutch Colonial in 1879 to transported crops of cultivation system. This station is located in the southern of Java Island. The original station building had been damaged during Japanese colonial and the present building is rebuilding after the destruction.

 

Kereta Purwojaya Jakarta-Cilacap, Indonesia

Mulai dari artikel ke 46 ini, Gw akan menyisipkan artikel tentang keindahan negeri Gw tercinta, Indonesia.

Perjalanan kali ini adalah perjalanan tugas dari kantor yang sekaligus Gw berikan nilai tambah dengan berwisata ke kota Cilacap di selatan Pulau Jawa.

Perjalanan Gw tempuh menggunakan kereta eksekutif Purwojaya yang tiketnya Gw issued melalui Traveloka. Harga tiketnya Rp. 260.000 untuk berangkat dan Rp. 315.000 untuk kepulangannya….lumayan kantor yang bayarin….hihihi

tiket

 

Perjalanan dimulai dari rumah sekitar pukul 19:00 menggunakan GO-CAR dan tiba di Stasiun Gambir pukul 20:30. Setelah nge-print tiket di mesin tiket otomatis, menunggulah Gw di ruang tunggu pintu selatan. PT. Kereta Api Indonesia (PT KAI)menerapkan aturan, penumpang hanya boleh masuk ke peron satu jam sebelum keberangkatan.

Setelah membeli sebungkus kwaci buat nemenin Gw dikereta untuk berkarya di situs ini, akhirnya pukul 21:30 Gw mulai masuk ke peron dengan menunjukkan KTP dan tiket ke petugas jaga. Gw langsung boarding karena kereta memang sudah siap menunggu para tamunya.

Kanan: Kereta Purwojaya menunggu penumpang

Melihat ruang gerbong sepertinya ini adalah gerbong lama, hanya memang terawatt dengan baik. Salut sama KAI yang terus berbenah memprofesionalkan diri.

Setelah kereta berjalan sekitar 30 menit suhu ruangan mulai dingin….super dingin….Gw sengaja ga bawa jaket untuk meminimalkan backpack karena Gw juga harus bawa sekardus barang bawaan dan sebuah roll up banner untuk acara kantor….rempongnya kerasa gaes.

Untungnya si Bapak pengecek tiket bilang ke penumpang bahwa nanti akan diberikan selimut ke setiap penumpang. Alhamdulillah….

Gw berkenalan dengan ibu disebelah bangku, kebetulan dia asli Cilacap. Ya sudah Gw nanya-nanya aja tentang wisata di Cilacap. Dengan sabarnya dia menjawab bahkan menunjukkan foto-fotonya di beberapa lokasi wisata di Cilacap.

Setelah si Ibu tertidur mulailah Gw mengetik artikel untuk situs ini….tapi bukan artikel yang ini ya gaes….justru artikel ini Gw ketik pas Gw melakukan perjalanan menggunkan LINTAS Travel dari Bandung ke Jakarta….hihihi

Kereta Purwojaya sendiri akan berhenti di beberapa Stasiun besar seperti Bekasi, Cirebon, Purwokerto, Kroya, Maos dan berakhir di Cirebon.

Sekitar pukul 05:00 tak terasa kereta tiba di Cilacap. Walaupun ditelfonin staff dari Whiz Hotel Sudirman bahwa Gw ditunggu di parkiran Stasiun untuk dijemput, Gw sempatkan 7 menit untuk mengabadikan suasana Stasiun Cilacap di pagi hari.

Walah Gw lupa mengabadikan penampakan Stasiun Cilacap dari depan karena buru-buru ke mobil penjemput. Tapi jangan khawatir gaes….Gw mengabadikannya saat kepulangan menuju Jakarta 3 hari berikutnya.

Cekrekkkk……

Stasiun Cilacap SiangStasiun Cilacap yang awalnya dibangun Kolonial Belanda pada 1879 untuk mengangkut hasil tanam paksa. Stasiun ini terletak pada posisi paling selatan pulau Jawa. Bangunan asli stasiun ini sudah di rusak saat kolonial Jepang dan bangunan yang sekarang adalah pembangunan kembali setelah pengrusakan tersebut.

 

7 Hours Enjoy Beauty of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

It was sad If I met European tourists, because they had long leave schedule. When they asked to me about my leave duration…. yes, exactly just 12 days ….. I sad…. hahaha.

But I never give up …. with my little time I will be around the world.

Back to time matter …. Every I had short transit when abroad, I often spent time to short exploration to the city that I had transit.

This article also tells how I spent 7 hours in Kuala Lumpur down town between 10:00 – 17:00

1. Batu Caves.

The journey started from 10:30 am from KL Sentral. Using the combination of KTM 1 free bus and Sentul – Batu Caves commuter train.

My trip in Batu Caves Gw was closed by lunch time at Dhivya’s Café – an Indian food stall on the front yard of Batu Caves -. I ate fried rice for 4 Ringgit.Dhivya's cafe

2. Petronas Twin Tower

At 14:42 I arrived at KL Sentral, I was using the same lane and mode of transportation when I was heading for Batu Caves. From KL Sentral I moved with LRT Kelana Jaya Line for 2.4 Ringgit and finally I arrived at KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre). I was out through Ampang Street KLCC Exit Gate. And finally I found Petronas Twin Tower.

The stinging heat of sun required me to took some photos of twin building when clouds were blocking the sun. When clouds have moved avoid the sun then I took shelter under the trees in front yard of twin building. Many tourists saw my oddity…. hahaha

After took some photos of Twin Tower and surrounding landmarks, I immediately moved to Pavillion in Bukit Bintang using GOKL City Bus.

3. Pavillion Bukit Bintang

Using the free GOKL bus, I had opportunity to revisited Pavillion, Bukit Bintang at 16:18. Easter theme made decorations in Pavilion courtyard was very eye-catching.

I was only 20 minutes in Pavilion and I wanted to went to Petaling Street at Pasar Seni soon. 

4. Petaling Street

Going to Petaling Street, Pasar Seni, I used again GOKL free bus. On 16:53 I arrived at Pasar Seni terminal.

I just asked to local people around Pasar Seni to showed Petaling Street directions. A middle-aged nicely man pointed to me the way to got there. By walking towards Petaling Street, My eyes swept Pasar Seni situation that had changed better than 2014. In 7 minutes I reached Petaling Street.

Petaling Street didn’t crowded yet because I came there around 5 pm, traders were getting ready with their wares. I just bought keychains here.

And Petaling Street became last destination on this trip. Because I must prepare to flied to Singapore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saving Budget for 5,6 Ringgit with GOKL City Bus, Malaysia

As a backpacker, I always try to minimize budget in every trip. For transportation budget, I will more walk or use the cheapest mode of transportation,  if possible I use free public transportation.

Like in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, I used tram for free or ….. in Kuala Lumpur, there are free buses that I can use to got around to city. it’s name is GOKL City Bus.

Well what I want to tell here is GOKL City Bus, guys….

GOKL City Bus has the following routes:

gokl_may2014002_e1

 

Consist of 4 line, there are GO Relax (Red), GO Work (Blue), GO Sightsee (Purple), and GO Shopping (Green)
Source: http://www.spad.gov.my/transport-operators/buses/route-map-gokl-city-bus

GOKL City Bus itself was launched by SPAD (Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat) on August 31, 2012 as a part of Malaysia’s Government Transportation Program to reduced congestion in Kuala Lumpur’s Central Business District (CBD) with user targets were private car users, users of public transport and tourists .

The operating hours of GOKL City Bus are 6 am-11pm for working day and 7 am-11pm for weekends and holidays. For working day, this bus will operate during peak hours (7 am-10am and 4 pm-8pm) every 5 minutes. And for  another day,  it will operate every 10 minutes.

I ever tried GOKL City Bus in 2014 when I visited Kuala Lumpur for first time. And the same traveling I did on March 2018.

Petronas Twin Tower – Pavillion Bukit Bintang

After satisfied to took some photos at twin building, I immediately moved to GOKL City Bus shelter in front of Petronas Twin Tower. Yes ….. this bus would take me to Bukit Bintang – a famous shopping center in Kuala Lumpur-.

Bottom Right: Petrosains shelter, GOKL will wait for passengers near this shelter.

Bus waited about 10 minutes until space was full of passengers. It took 15 minutes until the bus reached Pavillion, Bukit Bintang. I tried to remembered landmarks in Pavilion to decided where I would stopped. I remembered and saw Pavillion parking gate, so I immediately got off  from bus.

Pavillion Bukit Bintang – Pasar Seni

I was only 20 minutes in Pavilion and I wanted to went to Petaling Street at Pasar Seni soon. Actually I would use Monorail combined LRT to Pasar Seni. But when break sitting in front of Pavilion, I saw GOKL bus with a destination board to Pasar Seni. I immediately ran to the bus that was taking some passengers. Exactly, I could got in and bus departed to Pasar Seni.

About 12 minutes, GOKL City Bus arrived at Pasar Seni terminal. Pasar Seni terminal was very different if compared to 2014-the time when I firstly came to Kuala Lumpur-. I saw MRT Pasar Seni station there. As far as in 2014, the MRT station was still under construction.GOKL Pasar Seni

GOKL City Bus at Pasar Seni


Using GOKL City Bus for moved to 2 venues could save budget about 5.6 Ringgit. Actually
It was a little money but it could use for my dinner……hihihi  

 

New Route to Batu Caves, Malaysia

In 2014, I had visited Batu Caves. At that moment I went from KL Sentral to Batu Caves used Seremban Line Commuter Train with ticket fare 2 Ringgit.

March 30th, 2018, I visited Kuala Lumpur and I wanted to visited Batu Caves again. But when I bought ticket at KL Sentral commuter ticket counter, the commuter train to Batu Caves currently unserved passengers from KL Sentral. I knew it because I notice a tourist who talk to ticket counter staff. Finally I decided to got out from queue before actually reached in front of ticket counter staff.

I finally headed to KL Sentral information counter to ask how to reached Batu Caves. According to information staff, to reached Batu Caves, I must use KTM 1 free bus from KL Sentral to Sentul Station. Well from Sentul Station then continued using commuter train to Batu Caves. I ask where did the free bus located, actually KTM 1 bus shelter was in front of Airport Coach / Sky Bus Shelter in KL Sentral.

Top Left: Direction board was in front of Skybus shelter that directed tourists to KTM 1 bus to Sentul Station

Right: Direction on the floor directed me towards KTM Bus 1 shelter.

Bottom Left: KTM 1 Bus parked at Sentul Station.

Free bus KTM would go if passengers was full, I didn’t wait to got a seat. When bus had available space then I immediately got in. The journey from KL Sentral to Sentul Station took approximately 25 minutes on the fluently road.

Once arrived at Sentul Station, I immediately headed into station to bought commuter train tickets. I immediately bought a round-trip ticket because it was cheaper 1 Ringgit than one-way ticket. Once I paid 5 Ringgit then I got a ticket pass to got in the train line. This card would bring me back to Sentul Station again after finishing Batu Cave visitation.

Once got in to train line,  a commuter train was waiting. This Chinese-made train stopped long enough to waited for passengers until all seats were full.

It was clear that KL Sentral point still exist on the route map above the train door, it indicated that initially this train passed KL Sentral when it ran towards Batu Caves, but the line had been changed and shortened into Sentul Station-Batu Caves Station.

I noticed that the flow of passengers up and down along the way to Batu Caves was very quiet, it also seen from some station buildings along trip that poorly maintained in cleanliness so the building seen dull and some escalator didn’t work. The line was arguably quiet.

After 20 minutes finally I arrived at Batu Caves.
Some interesting views in Batu Caves that I got:

And before moved to Petronas Twin Tower, I decided to lunch at a food stall around Batu Caves. Most of food stalls were managed by Malaysian Indians because Batu Caves was their worship place
