Tidung Island or Pulau Tidung is an island in Thousand Islands. Tidung becomes famous because of “Jembatan Cinta” or “Bridge of Love” which connects Pulau Tidung Besar (The Greater Tidung Island) and Pulau Tidung Kecil (The Smaller Tidung Island). Besides Bridge of Love where people can jump, visitors can also play water sport and do snorkeling. The island offers you colorful collection of coral reefs, tropical fish and exotic sea creatures. This is why this island was chosen as DG Family holiday destination.
To refresh and renew DG Family’s energy, DG Family had a short holiday in Tidung Island. To access Tidung Island, DG Family had to depart with motorized wooden boats through Muara Angke port. Upon arrival at Tidung Island port, we met our 2 tour guides from Colle Adventure tour that would help us. We were escorted to Mahardika Villa.
Mahardika Villa has 6 houses. Each house has 2 bedrooms, 1 living room with extra bed and 1 bathroom. The villa has directly view to the beach accompanied by extensive Gazebo. The gazebo can be used as gathering area where visitors can hang out together while enjoying the sea breeze. The gazebo has been equipped with karaoke set.
When we had reached the Villa, we were greeted with delicious lunch and given a time to rest. The rest time was used by some of us to explore the Greater Tidung Island. Some were cycling and some others were on foot. Before 01.00 pm, all of us had already in the Villa to prepare ourselves for the first activity which is snorkeling.
For snorkeling activity, we required to ride a small boat. Arrived in the first snorkeling location; we began to jump into the water. Some of us could not swim but still decided to take part of this activity. Well, why should we be scared if we were wearing life jacket. Another reason why we were not scared was other members of DG Family would always help us when we needed it. This trust has been built for 4 years and will grow stronger and stronger each year.
Because of unfriendly weather, we could not go to the second and third snorkeling location. However we could allocated the remaining time for the second activity which was water sport activity. We were brought to water sport activity location which at Bridge of Love. We spent around 3 hours for the second activity.
After all of us had our fun, we were escorted again to our villa. As soon as we arrived, dinner was served. Before a bath, we ate and spend some quality time together. After a bath, we took a short rest because we had to save some energy for the third activity at 08.00 pm which barbeque and karaoke time.
Waiting to barbeque was served; member of DG family took turn to sing a song. There were joke, song and laugh. Time was getting late. One by one decided it was the time for a rest. The last activity was wake up early to see sunrise at Bridge of Love and walk to Smaller Tidung Island. After that, we needed to take a bath and pack our bag; ready to go back to our home and begin our activity with new sprite and energy for new chapter of our beloved company, DGtraffic.
