What you'll do

From Jakarta, Bogor can be reached for about one hour. When the Dutch colonialism era, Bogor is a capital city of Indonesia. There is a special craft in Bogor that makes this city more unique. It is wayang golek. Wayang golek is one of the most popular wood puppets in West Java. I will bring you to the wayang golek craftsman studio. You will listen to the history and culture of wayang golek in Bogor. Then, you will learn how to make wayang golek which has a long process. You will paint your own wayang golek and play with colours. Of course, you can bring your wayang golek home later. If we have time, we can play gamelan music together. It is a traditional musical accompaniment for wayang golek performance. *I am available to accompany you to reach Bogor from Jakarta by train. I will recommend you to meet at the nearest train station to your hotel. No extra free. **If the experience is not opened on the date you want, please give me a request by message

Evi

Hello, my name is Evi. I was born in Jakarta, and now I live in Bogor for six years. I have travelled a lot around Indonesia. Ask me if you want to know about the most recommended beach, diving spot, Indonesian gastronomy, or anything you want to know about my country. After I graduated from the Faculty of Humanities for Indonesian Studies, I started my career as a teacher. Now, I decided to resign and be a host of Airbnb Experiences for fulltime. I really enjoy my job as a local expert host now while I am pursuing a scholarship for my master degree next year.
