Maybe some of you saw that one of us went to Derawan Island on this early March from Instagram, especially since it's a bit of a spam..lol! It's just because the place is just so beautiful that I want to show you all of them! Show that our Indonesia is actually gorgeous! Land nor underwater, all of them are pretty and after sharing them, a lot of you also ask some questions about this, so here's all the answers you need! Let's tour!!
It's a bit of a tiring trip if you're from Jakarta though, as it's from Jakarta to Balikpapan to Berau to Tanjung Batu, and then to Derawan. From Berau to Tanjung Batu, you'd have to ride a car for about 150-180 minutes drive, depends on your driver..lol! The road is far from smooth and you'd be going into the woods (playing that TS song..lol!), from then on going to Derawan will be taken by a speed boat with about 25 minutes of travel. Other alternative if you don't want to go through Berau, is going through Tarakan, though if I'm not mistaken, you'd be going on a long journey by boat. I'd much prefer a long way by car than boat, you see!
