Fun Backpacker to Tidung Island : Cheap doesn’t Mean not Fun


The Thousand Islands (Indonesian: Kepulauan Seribu) are a chain of islands to the north of Jakarta’s coast. It forms the only regency of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. It consists of a string of 110 islands[1] stretching 45 km north into the Java Sea.

A decree[2] states that 36 islands may be used for recreation. Of these 36 islands, only 13 islands are fully developed: 11 islands are homes to resorts and two islands are historic parks. Twenty-three islands are privately owned and are not open to the public.[3] The rest of the islands are either uninhabited or support a fishing village.[3] (Wikipedia)

Start from Muara Angke Port, we buy ticket to Tidung island, its around IDR 35.000 – IDR 40.000 per person.  We need 2-3 hours to reach Tidung Island from Muara Angke Port.
