Thank you for visiting my travel blog "Indonesia Travel Blog".  My name is Firman Rahman and currently live on the north coast of East Java in a remote area called "Tongas", an area that since the time of the Majapahit Kingdom has been mentioned, and is under Mount Bromo. Here, almost ten years living here, and since 2017 I have also tried to write with various information ranging from culinary, business, entrepreneur, finance, and this time on this blog, I want to write about enjoying life by traveling in Indonesia itself and some time abroad. Before choosing the path as a full-time blog writer, I once owned a traditional culinary place in Probolinggo City, but with development of time, I enjoyed writing more.

Life is changing with all the changes, especially since deciding to live in this small village around 2014 and leaving the hustle and bustle of the city in Surabaya and Jakarta and a career in finance and banking, and choosing to enjoy the culinary business, made me understand that tourists and travelers from outside Indonesia need the right information.

After repeatedly writing about travel blogs in Indonesian, starting a blog around January 2017 with various finance, entrepreneur, and culinary themes, then in June 2023 I decided to choose traveling with the idea of introducing the beauty of Indonesia as the main idea on this blog. Especially since becoming one of the winners in the Mystery Topic Pesona Indonesia competition with the theme: Sustainable & Responsible organized by the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy in April 2023, which makes me sure to focus on this traveling blog.

Interested in all the beauty of Indonesia from Sabang, Aceh to Merauke, Papua I am sure this blog will more or less provide information for you.

That's the short story of how my blog went from small dreams to reality with lots of sweat, blood, and tears along the way.

However, whether you are a company looking to collaborate or a reader with additional questions about location, please send me an email to and I will do my best to get back to you.
