Pulau Ambon- first seeing Ambon island

First steps to pulau Ambon at Pattimura International Airport... Coming from Ibukota Jakarta it is a time jump of two hours eastward, and from Germany you must count eight hours difference in the winter and seven hours in the summer- a third of a day- real you are now at the other side of the earth near the the Pacific, the Great Ocean.

And real, the north part of Maluku province with Halmahera is at the Melanesian part in the waves of the great wide Pacific Ocean.

Coming out of the airplane, you will feel at the first steps the other kind and feeling. From the weather - more tropical sea weather seems to me.

In special when coming in mid dezember, seeing the green around at the Ambon town hills and the bluegreen in the haze of the peaks north of Ambon bay.

So different colours compared with dusty gray Jakarta that time, see the photo...

Staying in Ambon island

Pulau Ambon is the name of the special double Island, connected only by a small land bridge.The town Ambon the capital of Maluku Province is situated at the bay at south part
And often the people talking in far Jakarta about "Ambon"- make not difference between it.
Very quick one will find out it's special charme-
"Ambon Manisé "- much new you will find - and one of of this is the music! (Find out in YouTube).

Of course pulau Ambon, the Ambon Island the door to Maluku Province of Indonesia- in special to the "Lease Islands" -
you will have a good start from Ambon.

But this as first, more later, this little only as beginning for this little travel side about Ambon Manisé ---

If interested in more about Ambon town find some remarks at the VT-"Ambon" sides.

Good bye, Ambon Island

One time the travel and time will be over -
and starting with the jet,
again the last view to the north coastline -
until it will disapear in the clouds,
going westward again-
Ambon sudah jauh-
good bye Ambon - sampai jumpa lagi.
