camp vietnam

Many of the they who had not achieved his aim. They who lost everything in their homeland because of the Vietnamese war, sold the last wealth in order to be able to get on the small wood ship occasionally together more one hundred people at the same time, betting in the smallest possibility available.
They were robbed, were raped, and were killed by the pirate in the South China Sea. Another part was tossed about helplessly because of the storm, ran out of the fuel and foundered just like that. They who succeeded in being safe then spent time until several months in the open sea, remained temporary had the colleague a trip that was sick or died was hungry.
This a piece related that was not possible to disappear with time. The Galang Island name apparently was not so popular in compared secularly Batam. But, the Support kept the memory of the history 250 thousand more Vietnamese refugees. Definitely the Support will also become the island that will not be forgotten for them who had lived in the barren island. How the condition for the Support at this time? Would kah became the cultural tourist attraction for Batam? 
The trip to Galang Island was begun in the middle hot his trick matahari.Dengan used the bus, we were with former Culture and Tourism Minister Megawati's cabinet, looked around the tourist attraction in Kepualauan Riau. One of them the Vietnamese camp in Galang Island.
Galang Island currently with the Batam Island and the Island of Rempang becomes one unity of the authority that was acknowledged as Barelang (Batam-Rempang-Galang). Before arriving in the Vietnamese location, the resident who wanted to arrive in the camp will pass the area of the Kuning Face where being gotten the biggest region of the electronic industry in Batam. 
Increasingly entered refugees's territory, the atmosphere was so cool. Suddenly was seen a small pillar by the name of Humanity Statue. From the explanation near the statue, was written that the statue was erected by the refugees to remember the disaster that struck a woman named Tinh Nhan that was raped by the fellow refugees in the location where the statue was currently. Tinh Nhan the not old suicide afterwards.
Was not far from the human statue on the left was gotten the area of the Ngha Trang funeral. Gotten 503 graves that were allocated were good for that Buddhis and Christian. In the main gate was gotten a pillar be inscribed ”dedicated to the people who died in the sea ounce the way to freedom.
That was interesting when entering the territory, there was the legacy of several of refugees's former boats that were lifted to the land as the memory of the struggle to live that was better. Most of refugees's camps were indeed restored again like the former prison, the hospital belonging to UNHCR and the boat, in fact the former UNHCR office was made the small museum, but unfortunately the barracks of these refugees were left broken was involved the tall grass and the crop crept like that was seen by me in the Support camp 2
The area of the Vietnamese settlement currently becomes the conservation territory as the museum was open utuk the public. This place also was proof to the world that Indonesia had the high commitment in upholding the values of humanity that was important in the history of modern civilisation in South-East Asia.

The palace was the source of the Javanese broadcast of cultural art that could be witnessed through beauty of architecture with the ornament- his ornament that was enchanting. Every day Karaton was open for tourists's visit began to strike 08,30 until striking 13,00, except for the day of Jum;at Kraton only was opened up to struck; 11,00


The bustle and a Malioboro brightness also was not free from the number of stallholders who lined up as long as the Malioboro road peddled his merchandise, almost all of them that were offered were the thing/the typical Jogja object as souvenir/the present for the tourists. They traded in the people's typical diligence Jogjakarta, including diligence ayaman rattan, skin, batik, silver, bamboo and other, in the form of batik clothes, the bag of skin, skin shoes, the rattan decoration, the skin puppet, the hanging of the key to bamboo, the spoon/the silver fork, blangkon batik [a typical hat tiger of Jogja/Java], socks with various models/the article and still many that were other. These stallholders there are those that spread out his merchandise on the table, the cart adapula that only spread out plastic on the floor. So as when the visitor Malioboro was busy enough between the visitor will jostle mutually because of the narrowness of the road for the pedestrians because of being solid enough and the number of traders on the right and left.

The tip of the Malioboro road that one terhubung with the Mangkubumi road and was restricted by the station and the tip of the Pillar train of his one again terhubung with the road A.Yani. In the area of the Malioboro region and surrounding area of many other locations that could be visited for example Siti Inggil Keraton Jogjakarta, the market of Beringhardjo, the Vredeburg fortress, of Gedong Senisono, Museum Sono Budoyo and other. At this time Malioboro could be said as the heart of the bustle of the Jogja city, because of the number of traders and the expired visitor the tall grass. The very busy region both in two sides of the road that berkoridor and to the vehicle road although one direction from the Mangkubumi road but various vehicle kinds progressed and met in this road and not surprised if the impasse happening. From the traditional vehicle like the pedicab, the buggy/andong/the buggy, the bicycle, the cart and the vehicle have an engine like the car, taxi, the city bus, the public's transport, the motorcycle and etc
The Malioboro region as one of the regions the Jogja tour of the expenses of the city mainstay, this was supported by the existence of shops, the restaurant, the shopping centre, and did not miss his stallholders. For shops, the shopping centre and the available restaurant in fact same like the centre of the business and the expenses in other cities, that disemarakan by the name of big and had also the local names. The thing that was traded in from the thing import and local, from the everyday requirement to the electronic thing, furniture et cetera. Also provided various diligence, the example of batik, the puppet, ayaman, the bag et cetera. Gotten also the place of the changing of foreign currency, the bank, the star hotel of five through to the type of jasmine. 
However should not be left behind to investigate the Malioboro road that has been very famous this. Could in a walking manner from the end at the end to two sides of the road, or with ‘dokar’ [the buggy/andong] and the typical Jogja pedicab. During the day the Malioboro region very busy the good visitor the resident and tourists, at first again when the season of the school holiday arrived or was the quite long national holiday day. In fact the Malioboro road from the end at the end only be at a distance more than one kilometre, and to his two sides of plenty of shops, the office, the restaurant and mall as well as the shopping centre, attracted him again plenty of lined-up stallholders were supervised the road corridor that sheltered from the intensity of heat of the sun and rain. Keramian this was begun since the morning till nine nights during the shopping centre in was closed, but the life beat of the Malioboro region had not stopped because of being ready lesehan restaurant stalls spread out his merchandise.
To spend the night around Malioboro also was easy to be gotten accommodation from the type of jasmine to the star hotel of five. The tourists will not worry to could enjoy also his holiday days in the Jogja city till late at night even. They could enjoy the servings in the lesehan restaurant stall all along the Malioboro road, food that was provided and offered from the typical Jogja food kind that is gudeg rice and the fried chicken but also Padang food, ChinesseFood et cetera. When enjoying the serving that was presented will be entertained by music from the trader and the street busker that enough from that only carried the guitar adapula that carried complete musical equipment.
 There were a special attention for tourists who will enjoy the lesehan restaurant stall that is asking first about the price of food that will be ordered before having a not more agreeing bill dihati, and so this became special attention from the regional government that is by hanging the plank in the Malioboro region in writing “Mintalah the list of the price before you memesan”. Look for the stall ate that was regarded as natural in giving the price from a serving ate and the drink that was presented, indeed the action menaikan this really tariff really reduced the available image of the lesehan restaurant stall in the Malioboro region. Really was regretted if the tourists visited to Jogjakarta and surrounding area as well as especially this Malioboro region only one day visited. This caused many domestic tourists and foreign spent all of his holiday time that was long enough only for the tour visit to Jogja and surrounding area.
