Trip 4 Negara (Iran, Armenia, Georgia & Azerbaijan)

Posted on

Yang suka adventure dan yang tidak suka jalan-jalan cantik, trip ini cocok buat kalian. Apalagi negara-negara ini masih sangat jarang dikunjungi (terutama orang Indonesia). Pastinya sih karena jauuuh ya.. 😄😄

Makanya saya buat trip ini sekaligus ke 4 negara, karena 4 negara ini berdekatan (tetanggaan) dan mudah dilalui melalui jalan darat. Saya memilih negara-negara ini sebagai traveling ke negara antimainstream. Dan memang ternyata negara-negara ini punya pesona sendiri. Penjelajahan saya yang baru saja yaitu tgl 1-10 Mei 2019 benar-benar seru dan menyenangkan.

Dari Iran ke Armenia & Georgia naik mobil, dari Georgia ke Azerbaijan naik kereta api malam. Dan Azerbaijan balik ke Iran naik pesawat. Nah, untuk trip yang akan datang ada sedikit perubahan. Dari Iran ke Armenia akan naik pesawat, selebihnya tetap sama.

Jadwal Trip berikutnya tgl 5-17 Oktober 2019. Bulan Oktober sudah masuk musim gugur (autumn), pasti pemandangannya akan lebih keren dengan warna-warni daun yang mulai berubah 😊🍁🍂.. untuk pendaftaran dan info lebih lanjut silahkan hubungi di nomor 08170990708 (WA) atau telpon di 08111727388

Walking Tour in Georgetown Penang

Posted on Updated on

Visiting Penang, Malaysia is a part of my road trip from Thailand to Singapore. I came from Hatyai by minivan which taken around 4 hours. The minivan dropped me at Butterworth. Actually they could drop me in Georgetown city, but I would like to cross the river by ferry. Just pay only RM1.20 then the ferry will take me 20 minutes to Ferry Terminal or Weld Quay. I arrived at 9.30pm local time. There are many taxis and buses, and i decided took a taxi. Well, I had to bargain the cost which I didn’t know how much the cost properly to my hotel. Finally, we dealt with RM18 (eventually I knew the cost should be around RM12 🙂 ). I feel that everything worked out incredibly simple and secure.

Spending times 2 days in Georgetown was quiet enough. It is a small town. I stay at Red Inn Court, located in Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling. It was easy to reach everywhere from this hotel and close to historical sites. Many restaurants around here and they open up until midnight.

So, my first morning in Georgetown my walking tour started to pass St. George’s Church, Penang Museum and Church of Assumption. Explanation is provided of Museum from the outside. From there I passed into Love Lane.

Along the way of Love Lane, Muntri Street there are many buildings with historical story. Until i found the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, but unfortunately I couldn’t entry to the Mansion. It will be open at 2pm, informed by the security. 😦
