Linjani Coffee Shop
We (Mr. Zhou, the geologist and myself) stayed at the Sheraton Bandara Jakarta on our final night (29 May 2013) in Indonesia which is situated 3 km from the airport as we do not want to get caught up in the traffic on the way to the airport and missed our flights (ie. if we have stayed in the city centre). After experiencing 3 nights of sub-standard accommodation in the interiors of West Kalimantan, the Sheraton Bandara is paradise on earth! With a huge landscaped garden and large lake, you will never imagined that you are actually in a city. Mr. Zhou left the hotel at 7.30am for his flight to Guangzhou, departing at 9.05am and I was left alone to explore this wonderful hotel. As it is miles out of the city, I'm not planning on going anywhere so I had breakfast at the Linjani Coffee Shop and had a foot reflexology at the spa after that. Left the hotel on the complimentary shuttle at 12.30pm to the airport to catch the flight to Singapore and then from Singapore to Brunei at 9.15pm. However, BI424 to Brunei was delayed for one hour due to a problem with the aircraft and I finally reached Brunei after midnight. What a hectic week but I'm not complaining as the experience is unforgettable! For more photos of Sheraton Bandara, click here.
