rented a boat, it is needed maximum 20 minutes to reach the Samalona Island. we have to spend IDR 400.000. on the boat, don't forget to tight your hair up. because the wind make your hair tangled :D. wear your fancy sunglasses to protect the eyes especially, if you accross the sea at the noon.

boat stopped, I got to a place! yey. welcome to the Samalona Island.
