The national monument in Jakarta

The national monument (Monas) is a tower height of 132 meters (about 50 floors) in the centre of Independence Square, one of the main symbols of Indonesia. Was built in the period from 1961 to 1968, opened to the public in 1975. From an architectural point of view is nothing special, except that will be interesting from an engineering point of view, but you miss it you can't, because the Independence Square is a must to visit during a visit to the city. In addition to the external inspection of the monument you can visit a small Museum of the history of the country at its base, and lift almost to the top to the viewing platform 115 metres. But if you want to go upstairs, have to stand in line, especially if it gets here at the weekend. During holidays or weekends, it makes sense to come here in advance before the opening, in order not to lose a few hours in the queue.

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. ...

And what to argue, I really wrote it the same resorts? Just the opposite. As far as your opinion about Seminyak, it is the place to be, it's your opinion. Don't be so bad and categorical about it, because hundreds of thousands of tourists every year "vote" for traditional resorts and not "reservation" that keep going back there. And that this is real life Islands now as in Seminyak and in other places, what do you think that in Bali there are some places as it was before? Such places are almost there. ...
