The Thousand Island archipel is located north of the Indonesian capital Jakarta. It is a popular weekend hide-out for the locals. It is just about a 2 hour speed boat trip. We choose to go to Pular Pelangi (Rainbow Island) which is basically a resort. If you have the chance to go off-season and during a week day it is... More

I went with my friends for a short weekend getaway. We booked a travel organizer for 500.000 per person for a group of 5 person. It began with a boat trip from muara angke pier, beware, seasickness is common on this boat, better pick the open area at the back of the boat. The boat trio took about 3 hours,... More

We visited pulau bidadari for a day tour. The water was not clean. However, we was enjoying the cycling around the island. My kids was happy with playing the sand. They caught few small crabs and fish.

You can take a speed boat or ferry in the morning at the marine pier ancol to pulau seribu, just few hours you can arrive your destination and the sea is very pure, fantastic for snorkeling.

Facilities are old and not well maintained. Food was poor and the worst part of it is that the water (which normally is the purpse on going to 1000 islands) is dirty!!!!

Set up a two night stay with my wife and daughter at the resort. When we arrived it was obvious that the resort was is total disrepair and its best days were probably over fifteen years ago. Most of the public areas are unsafe to enter or walk on, there are no real activities for youngsters, and the accommodations were... More

It depends on which island you want to visit. The longer you take a boat , the more beautiful it would be. Beautiful coral and fishes at shallow water. A lot of locasl go to Pramuka, Ayer or Bidadari island because it's not far from jakarta. The transportation is well organized so you have to take a boat from the... More

There are many islands you can stay on within the 'thousand' islands. If possible head for the ones further out from Jakarta - less rubbish around, less touristy. Closer ones are set up as family friendly resorts with pools, water 'toys', etc. Outer ones are great for peace and relaxation. Picture yourself sitting on a deck chair on white sand... More
