During the first part of our trip to Surabaya, we actually had the opportunity to be hosted at a home-stay (as it worked out to be more convenient for us to get to the Ijen Crater). This is the lovely home of Mr. Suleiman (friend and neighbor of Mr. Slamet) and his family in a village of Bondowoso. Mr. Suleiman was also our driver for the whole trip. They were welcoming and truly made our stay more than comfortable, to the extend of treating us as one of their own. This is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that should not be missed. Mr. Slamet is a strong advocate for village tourism. So check out the previous video where Alvin interviews Mr. Slamet to find out what village tourism has to offer. Do contact Mr. Slamet at email@example.com should you require his tour guide services or would like the opportunity to live like/with the locals.
