i went to Thousand island in jakarta around july 2009 with my fellow friend,there are many public boat from Muara angke harbor cost Rp 60.000 around 6 USD ,all boat boarding not more than 7 in the morning so u better work it,otherwise you can get to Marina Ancol harbour to ride speed boat but that is lil pricey,it cost you $20USD,so you better take public boat to thousand islands, even that ride take 4 hours, but it worth ,trust me,Pramuka island is the main of this archipelago,so we stayed there,we rent room for 1 night for $30 one room 4 person.

as soon as we arrived we straight to rent small boat for us to takes islands hoping and snorkeling.we rent those small boat for 6 hours it cost $27 , there are some islands we want to visit near pramuka island, which is Air island, Semak daun Island,2 snorkeling spot, Karya Island, Panggang Island, and fish,shark farm to see the sunset,trust me that was one of the best sunset i've seen,trust me on this,i got some photo's to prove it

in the night we had some grilled fish that we bought near our hotel,there are only 2 place for you to eat,padang food restaurant and mix food on the menu the other one,that i bought grilled fish.

the next morning
we woke up very early to catch the sun rise,it located behind our hotel,there's sea turtle farm nearby,but we did't get the chance to see them. poor lil turtle :(

after the sun roses we continued to explore our neighbor island to see how they look,and my first impression,what!! the .... this island has beach with crystal clear blue water, i love it!! you will know the name of this island after you get there,LOL

after 10 AM we had to get back to our hotel and pack our belonging,straight to the harbor catch the first and the last boat to the Main land of Jakarta,there's only one boat to Main land everyday

so that's was my experienced when i went to thousand island Jakarta,so open you eyes,Jakarta has beautiful places to visit
