What we're about

This is a group for people living in or visiting Jakarta that are fans of ecotourism and responsible travel - discovering the amazing destinations, natural environments, and cultures of Indonesia while minimising any negative impacts and maximising the positive ones. We will meet up once in awhile to discover new destinations, build a network of places that we can visit easily from Jakarta, and share our love for responsible travel. We will base the meetups at Beehive Cafe, an eco friendly cafe in South Jakarta - and will occasionally get together at other eco-friendly venues around the city. We're looking forward to meeting up (and hopefully going on some eco adventures together)!
