Christmas holiday? Oh please don't imagine snow and the cold weather! This is even hotter than the summer out there, lol. I went to Sentul last Christmas, it's not far from Jakarta but sure has a lot of family leisure places to visit. I went to three locations in one day and I will divide it into two posts (+video). I will show you Ah Poong in this post ;)
Ah Poong is basically a 'floating' food court over a stream. It's another branch of Eat&Eat which is pretty popular in Indonesia. I arrived there around 10 a.m., and when you enter the location you'll see this sign of Blue Bridge and Red Bridge.
This is the Blue Bridge which is a 'solid' bridge that connects you from the entrance to the food court.
|Colorful chairs in the food court. Cute!|
You have to use this card to pay everything, just buy it at the cashier and you can refund it later. These are what I ate that day (some on the video):
|Mango & Strawberry snow ice|
|Bring along Doraemon with me that day :)|
Because it's still in Christmas mood, I saw some Christmas decorations there. This Santa Claus balloon thingy is so cute!
Beside Blue Bridge and Red Bridge, there's another bridge that connects you to the Eco Park; Yellow Bridge.
When you enter the Eco Park, you will see these statues and a big robot there. It's a park with a lot of trees and flowers, and some educational things.
|Would love to try this if I'm not this big, meh.|
Overall, it's a fun place to visit. It's less crowded in the morning, but I think it'll be really full near the lunch/dinner time. I'll recommend you to come at the late afternoon, it'll be cooler and enjoyable. Note that I got tanned because of taking photos for the blog, lol.
How to get there: Go through Tol Jagorawi and take exit at Tol Sentul Selatan 1 (from Jakarta) or simply put "Ah Poong Sentul City" on your google maps, hahaha ///_///
