Daily Photo • INDONESIA – JAVA

With a population of 136 million, it is the world’s most populous island, and one of the most densely populated regions in the world. It is home to 60% of Indonesia’s population. It contains beautiful countryside and filthy cities, tranquil rural scenes and streets congested with traffic. On this trip to Java I visited few cites and enjoyed some of well known tourist attractions. Here is some pictures from Java.

Bromo

The most popular and well known of East Java’s tourist attractions is undoubtedly Bromo Mountain. Standing at a height of 2392 meters, Mount Bromo isn’t the tallest mountain in Java but it’s spectacular sunrises, and majestic views across to Semeru volcano to the south makes this trip a “must”. Probably you have seen somewhere pictures of perfect sunrise on this pretty valley but recent (28th January 2011) eruption which covered surrounding villages with layer of black ash, still rainy, misty off tourist season brings you different type of pictures.

Surabaya

Surabaya is Indonesia’s second-largest city with a population of over 2.7 million. On the way to Bromo I stopped there for a night and found busy night market with huge mosque in the middle. Since not many tourists go there I was really popular subject for local kids and grownups alike. Some parts of this city reminded me of run down Amsterdam.
