Pramuka Island is located in Thousand Island, north Jakarta and popular known as tourist place and more likely cheap diving spot for the last few years like the other island such as Tidung or Pari Island.

That is the reason why they called it The Cyber Island, Pulau Pramuka (Pulau means Island in Bahasa Indonesia) is also the administrative center for Jakarta’s Thousand Island. Once said internet connection is very important for this area development and the locals depend on it. For me who’s outsiders consider it as part of  effort to popularise this quite small but attractive island. Amazing thing you could also find island is very clean and have their own recycle system.Continue reading “The Cyber Island”

The history itself is so interesting and I am very happy after finally I finished their book about History and Tourism of Bandung from geological point of view.
