- BENTENG VD WIJCK  (3 new items)

Fortress Van Der Wijck was build in 1818 by the Dutch General Van den Bosch as the former VOC trading office located in Gombong which was prepared to fight the Sultanate of Yogyakarta. It took 4 years to build it and was originally named Fort Cochius after the Dutch general Cocius who led the Dutch in Gombong during the war of Diponegoro in 1825-1830. Fortress Van der Wijck is an octagonal building with 7168 m2 surface area with wall thickness 1.4m. The structure of the building itself consists of 2 floors. The first floor has 4 entrances and 16 very large rooms and consists of 72 windows, 63 connecting doors and exits and 8 stairs to reach on the 2nd floor of this castle building. The 2nd floor has 70 connecting doors, 84 windows and 16 rooms of relatively large size. In 1856 Fort Cochius turned into Pupillenschool (Military school) and it was only then that Fort Cochius changed its name into “Benteng Van Der Wijck” as a tribute to General Van Der Wijck for his services to the Dutch government in the army.

- PEOPLE  (2 new items)

Balinese are warm and friendly people who will do a lot to make you feel comfortable at "their" island of "Demons and Gods".

- STATUES & OTHERS  (1 new item)

On Bali you'll find the most beautiful and detailed statues in the world. From hand sized craftsmanship to meters high stone carved statues

- PLACES  (5 new items)

"Bali is full", that's what some people say and in a way they are right but only if you stay in Kuta or Denpasar. Getting out of these crowded area's you'll find the Bali as it was and still is. Many places still are very interesting to visit despite the amount of visitors. I could make a long list list of those places but you'll find them in every brochure and travel guide. More interesting is to explore the island by yourself. With your own transportation or with a private driver. Take a walk in small village's, visit local markets, try the local food and drinks. Enjoy the views of the ricefields, listen to the sound of the oceans, explore the wildlife and... ok... visit some famous touristic places as well :-)

- MARKETS  (1 new item)

There are many markets in Bali where you can pick up local arts, crafts, jewelry, cheap fashion and souvenirs. The Balinese are famous for their artistry, so be sure to check out most popular crafts like paintings, stone-carvings, woodcarvings, puppets, weavings, and gold-and silver works. Even if you’re not interested in buying something, local snacks and the atmosphere of Bali’s local and touristic markets for sure offer something different from the modern malls. Bargaining is "a must do" at Bali markets. Just smile and pay what it's worth to you. Remember: they also have mouths to feed. Famous markets are those in Sukawati, Ubud, Kumbasari Denpasar, Bedugul and Tampaksiring.

Batik is made either by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a spouted tool called a canting or by printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap.The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to color selectively by soaking the cloth in one color, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colors are desired

- RELIGIOUS  (1 new item)

The Balinese Hinduism combines the Indian model with elements of native religion. The object of their religious practices is to maintain a balance between good and evil forces. Thus, Balinese make offerings to both gods and demons. They recognize a wide range of supernatural beings, including demons, ancestral spirits, and divinities such as the sun god Surya and the rice goddess Dewi Sri.

- SEMARANG  (4 new items)

Semarang lies in the northern part of Central Java. It is a bustling mid-sized city with a population of about 1.5 million. More a business than tourism destination, it nevertheless has its own charm with contrasting modern mid-rises, beautiful old Dutch colonial architecture (kota lama) and Chinatown. There are some Dutch colonial buildings around monument Tugu Muda; the most famous one is Lawang Sewu which means A Thousand Doors. It was built as the headquarters of the Dutch railway company (Holland Spoor). During World War II, it was used as the Japanese army's headquarters. Lawang Sewu's main attraction is its tall stained glass window. The building is recently renovated and is open to the public. Tour guides are available at the building's entrance. Though reputated to be haunted due to the great number of executions during WWII, Lawang Sewu remains one of Semarang's most prominent landmarks. Other interesting object are Blenduk church in the old “Dutch” town, China town with its Buddhists temples, Gang Baru market and Gang Lombok where you can find some small warungs with typical Semarang food like lumpia’s.
