Volcanoes of Bromo (Bromo) and Ijen (Ijen) – the most visited tourist attractions on the island of Java. To them flock the tourists from all over the world to see amazing phenomena – alien sunrise on Bromo, or mystical blue fire Igene. Ideally you should visit both places, especially since they are in the same part of the island of Java, and offers guided tours visit two volcanoes for 2 or 3 days.

But if the opportunity to visit both the volcano, and here's food for thought about which one to choose:

  • The Volcano Bromo

    Bromo is primarily known for the fantastic types that you can compare with alien landscapes. Indeed, a huge Caldera with a diameter of almost 8 kilometers, the landscape which formed the volcanic ash of an active volcano like no place on our planet. So every year thousands of tourists flock here to the mystic dawn.

    After the meeting, dawn can be sent to the most active volcano of Bromo, climbing up its slope on the edge of the crater and into the crater. Of course, the lava flows you will not see here, or the volcano would be closed for visiting as active. But your gaze be provided with a column of toxic smoke rising from the depths of the crater. You can walk along the edge of the crater, where also wonderful views. In addition, at the bottom you can see a small Hindu temple Pura Luhur Poten (but not to be missed, it is closed to the public), and walk across the Caldera floor, which is called "Sea of sand".

    In our opinion (and we visited both the volcano), the main advantage and difference from the Bromo Ijen is that it is much more beautiful and easier to visit, since a large part of the route passes by jeep and climb back up the crater to quite a bit.

  • The Ijen Volcano

    Ijen can boast such magnificent views, watch the sunrise here is not as interesting. But it is known to the world the mystical blue fire. Of course, in fact, nothing mystical in this fire no, it's just a pair of burning sulfur that erupt from the ground, but the spectacle is mesmerizing. It is this sight that the most important thing that attracts tourists here. And to get to the blue fire would have to climb along a trail with a height of 500 meters from the edge of the crater, and then descend into the crater in the 200 meters, where is the place for the extraction of sulfur and mystical fire and sulfur lake.

    To overcome this route will not everyone, especially the descent into the crater. You need to be in good shape, and to get the steep, rocky trail. So many tourists climbing up to the crater, go down are not solved, and are content with meeting dawn at the top. But the views of the sunrise here is not as impressive as on Bromo.

    Given all this we would not recommend to go to Ijen, if you are confident in your abilities, and you don't have at least some experience of Hiking in the mountains.

On the island of Bali not so much exotic fruits, especially during their off-season ripening, and the prices are quite high. How do local justify such a high price: the island is small and there is almost nothing growing and all imported, so expensive. But I am inclined to them a little do not trust and think that high prices probably because of the desire to earn more money. If you search well away from the tourist places on the stalls and markets, you can find cheaper, but still prices are higher than in Thailand. For example, in may, I failed to find in Bali mango cheaper than 40000 rupees per kilogram, which is about 175 rubles, in Turkestan take even more expensive. And in Bangkok, at the same time in the supermarket and on the street local mango is from 25 baht per kilogram, which is 50 rubles. ...

Hi all. When I was going to go to Bali a lot, watched and read and wondered about the food. You can eat food for local or not? In the end I went to the local market and together with the residents ate. Was very tasty and not expensive. With stomachs too, all was well.

Bali 2019, just struck us with its beauty. For the first time in Bali, we never have been. But in this journey through Bali, we have experienced off the island and filmed a huge number of interesting places. A separate line of this Bali trip was the waterfalls. Every waterfall in Bali is unique and not like the rest. Nature, which is simply beyond words.
In this issue, we decided to go to the waterfalls of Bali near Ubud. Who did not know, Ubud is the center of Bali island, around which a great number of waterfalls, jungles, monkeys, temples and everything you need for relaxation and tranquility.
First visited the falls Tucked Cheung. A very beautiful place. Made my way to him through the gorge, under a light rain, but when he went away from there in the pouring rain Balinese! On the second waterfall came all wet and it was a real adventure! In the pouring rain, with umbrellas, four tourists going to the falls. The sight of something else! In General, see, don't forget to put the huskies, subscribe to the channel and be sure to write a review about the walk to the waterfall with umbrellas))))))
Of course, where do without food. Food in Bali is different, but in this issue, we dabble a bit with the oysters and that's a real buzz.
