A May 2002 trip

Quote: Visiting places is a wonderful thing. But living in a place and fully immersing oneself in the culture and language is another. Jakarta is a city with a past and is looking forward to its future. Get to know the present Jakarta, where I spent 7 months.

Seeing the wonders of the sea is an awesome activity. Of course, not everyone can dive under the sea. So it is a safe and great alternative to see the sea beauties up close and personal at Jakarta's Sea World. One thing I would never forget in my visit to the Sea World was that I was amazed when never-before-seen fish flashed before my eyes.
When I walked through the giant aquarium, it felt amazing to have the rays and fishes of various colors and sizes swim overhead. There before me were the glorious treasures the depths of the ocean offers. With all the fishes on display, it felt good to know that our planet is so rich and abundant.
My favorite spot is where they keep the live turtles, which are safe to touch. Our next stop was the dolphin show. Watching them dance and swim in sync, it made me realize how smart creatures they can be. It's absolutely beautiful and enjoyable to be in Sea World. Of course, I wouldn't miss having my picture taken with the dolphins. The rest of the afternoon was spent touring the compound. There were boats available that will take you to the mouth of the sea and will give you a refreshing ride with the wind kissing your face. Restaurants are available if you feel you want to just sit down and take a breather from the overwhelming beauty and activities that abound in the place.
