Pulau Seribu Things to Do: 54 reviews and 74 photos

When booking the trip to Tidung Island note the more people the cheaper it gets. Also the accommodation is what they call home stay and it`s not that great. Some of the rooms don`t have AC and the facilities is very basic. Also they offer meals a few times a day which is also not that great. The worst part is taking a boat from Muara Angke ,as Muara Angke has the worst smell you ever smelled as there is a fish market there. So be prepared for it. Also the boat is a traditional boat so don`t expect any seating. You just find a spot on the boat and sit on the floor. The boats all have life jackets. They offer snorkling ,the mask and snorkel ,flippers and life jackets and alcohol wipes to clean the mouth piece of the snorkel. They also offered us bicycles ,they weren`t in good condition so just make sure you choose carefully when you arrive as they rusted and some of them the breaks is not working.

Over looking all of some of the bad ,it`s a really a nice get away from Jakarta. You only going to stay 1 night in the accommodation if you plan on going there on a weekend so I don`t think it would be a problem to stay in the home stay there for a single night as it`s not so bad.

Great experience ,the traditional boat is abit scarey but you can try and see what package deals they have from Anchol Marina as well which probably will be a little bit more expensive but I`m sure you`ll have a better boat and better accommodation but never the less it`s a great experience to go there and would recommending it.
