On the Road in East Java

Cultural Diversity

A short ferry boat ride across the Bali Strait from the port town of Gilimanuk, Bali lies the seaside town of Banyuwangi. Banyuwangi is located on the eastern tip of Java. It’s here where island of 1,000 temples gives way to a land graced by mosque architecture. And, the gamelan turns into melodic calls to prayer over the loudspeakers.

This crossing is a vivid reminder of how culturally diverse Indonesia is.

There will be no Pasar Ubud photo tours from 4 June to 10 June to honour Idul Fitri. Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri.
