Yesterday we had day off, and before back to office, strugling with traffic jam, sit in front of PC, let's take a break for a while. Then I ask my husband to go to Mangrove Eco Tourism Park in Pantai Indah Kapuk (North Jakarta area). He agreed, and we've planned to go the in the morning. But in actual, we're late! Hahhaha I woke up very late (after praying), and we arrived there around 11:30 am. The sun was so bright and totally "sunny"! :'D
But since we already there, we prepared umbrella and hat. Eventhough the weather was so hot, so many people came to this place. I know it's a mainstream place, it's so popular for taking pre-wedding picture, but still want to see directly what's in there. So I think most of people have same goal, taking a lot of pictures (well actually I did it as well, but not for long time because it's so hot, hahhahaha).
When you entry this area, you will find ticket box with the officer there, which is you have to pay for ticket and parking fee. For adult, we have to pay IDR 25,000/person and for car IDR 10,000. Not really expensive if we think about that it will help the management to maintain the area.

They have several bungalows for camping, and also playground for kids. Not only bungalow, but also they have canteen/restaurant, toilet, and mosque (near the entrance).
We love the greeny view in here, and it would be more lovely if we came at the right time (early morning or afternoon). But one thing that we hate the most is too many people littering! :( So sad that we couldn't keep our environment clean. You can take pictures as many as you can, but please keep your trash in your pocket or whatever, at least until you find trash bin. And actually we found a lot of trash bin there, so it shouldn't be that hard to put it there. But I don't know why people keep littering. We're not sure it came from yesterday visitor or previous one. But still, that's not good attitude to our nature.
So we hope to everyone who will go there, please don't litter. Be responsible to your own trash. Let's keep our nature clean, and let's save our earth. :)
