Yes this resort is still very young...

thx to the Indonesian goverment for giving us a decentralisation politics (otonomi daerah) so we also can develop our region

And I'm telling u that this resort is like an dreamland...
Imagine there's a mini theme park in the middle of a river, for me it's fantastic!!!
and to make an island that stabil and save in there, really cost a huge amount of rupiahs

first get a flight to Balikpapan, from there u can use taxi or buses to Tenggarong for a 2 hour trip.

Or u can go to the Pulau Kumala counter in Sepinggan airport of Balikpapan

So easy and simple...

Chris jon last match were in Jakarta, that was when he defended his world champ title. But you're right, he also defended his title in kutai last year.

Anyway, Kutai is the richest province in Kalimantan right?

Thanks for the pics Blue sky, how long is it from BPP to that area?

cheers

a little correction, Kutai Kartanegara is not a province...
In Indonesia its called kabupaten & its not only the richest kabupaten in Kalimantan but also in Indonesia...

From Balikpapan it takes 2 hour trip to Tenggarong, capital of Kutai Kartanegara...
But Kutai Kartanegara goverment has planned to build a brand new airport in there, I hope it will realised soon...
