RedDoorz Plus @ Thamrin: Clean Budget Hotel near BNI City (Sudirman Baru) Railink Station

RedDoorz Plus @ Thamrin is, what I think, a new hotel near Sudirman KRL Station. By that, I mean that it did not show up on Google Maps when I made by booking, but instead, a hotel by the old name of Hotel Fiducia Blora showed up. Nevertheless, with the RedDoorz chain reasonably well-known around the South … Continue reading RedDoorz Plus @ Thamrin: Clean Budget Hotel near BNI City (Sudirman Baru) Railink Station

On top of that, Railink … Continue reading SHIA Railink: Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to Sudirman Baru (BNI City) by Airport Train

Indonesia AirAsia QZ263: Singapore to Jakarta (Soekarno-Hatta Terminal 3) by Airbus A320-200 (Hot Seat)

For the Deepavali long weekend, I decided to book my ticket early in the year where there were free seats available, hopefully with new products by PT KAI showing up in the later half of the year.
