Indonesian and based in Bali, I am a Travel Expert for Indonesia. My approach to travel, now that I have kids, is more towards family oriented trips. Where and how all the family member can enjoy the holiday with different kinds of kids friendy activities and interesting visites for the young ones!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I love family activities: something that grandparents, parents and kids can all enjoy together! For example the Elephant Ride at Taro Village, north of Ubud.

Another activity I love is Cycling Around Gili island : It's a relaxing activity as you can do it at your own pace along the coasts while enjoying the sunset."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started travelling very early thanks to my father who was a diplomat. We have lived in different countries in Europe, Africa and Asia. These experiences opened my eyes to cultural diversity, taught me to appreciate different traditions and I discovered a variety of different cultures from all around the world."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Something that I will never forget was my first time snorkelling in Menjangan island. I was able to enjoy the diversity of the fishes and spectacular coral reefs. It’s one of best spots for snorkeling and diving around Bali, my favorite one too."
