My last trip in 2017 was to Banyuwangi, the easternmost tip of Java. This trip to Banyuwangi was very relaxing for me. Not in terms of slow pace but because I did not need to research too many details about the destinations in our itinerary. This time we booked a travel agent to guide us around, so we got a driver and a guide + photographer. Why? Even though still in Java island, I considered Banyuwangi was very remote, detached, isolated and so difficult to get around without local people, especially if you travel with elders and small kid like us. Been there now, I would say that… yeah, you need local people, but only for some places. Here is the detail of our 2 days journey in Banyuwangi.
