Electric car trip Jakarta to Bali cost only 15 US$ [ 200.000 IDR ] instead of 79 US$ [ 1.100.000 IDR ] normally on fuel according Erik Thohit , the Indonesian Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Erick Thohir said the use of electric cars is much more economical than conventional cars that rely on fuel oil .Our oil needs are around 1.5 million barrels per day, while domestic production is only half of it, Electric cars fully use domestic energy such as coal, gas, water, or EBT. We don’t need to waste foreign exchange, “he said. In order to encourage use and provide convenience for electric car users, the government has ensured that PLN ( Indonesian Electric state owned company ) is ready to meet the needs of electricity supply and supporting infrastructure, including SPKLU ( power charging station ).
Meanwhile, the composition of the charging infrastructure preparation is 80 percent in households, 20 percent of SPKLU in public places. “Because it is a habit for electric car owners to charge at home at night and the car can be used again in the morning,” added Erick. In terms of operational costs, the use of electric cars is also considered to be more efficient than oil-fueled cars. In fact, PLN has also prepared a discount for added power and a 30% discount for charging electric cars at home at night. “Only a fifth of the fuel car. If for the same mileage an ordinary car costs 500.000 IDR ( 35 US$ ) for example, this electric car only needs 100.000 IDR ( 7 US$ ). Has been tested by the Commissioner of PLN. (Route) Jakarta-Bali only needs 200.000 IDR ( 15 US$ ).
If using an ordinary car, the fuel will be used up around 1.1 million, “said Erick. The use of electric cars is also more environmentally friendly because it produces less CO2 emissions than ordinary cars. So that it will improve air quality and support the achievement of targets for reducing national greenhouse gas emissions.
Erik Thohit , the Indonesian Minister of State-Owned Enterprises
To support the use of electric cars on the Trans Java Toll Road, currently PLN has SPKLUs in 4 rest areas on the Trans Java Toll Road. Erick reiterated that President Joko Widodo had issued Presidential Regulation No. 55 of 2019 concerning the Acceleration of the Battery Electric Vehicle Program for Road Transportation to encourage the use of electric cars in Indonesia. He considered that encouragement was needed in the form of a Ministerial Regulation for incentives and financial support in order to promote electric cars.
With an electric car ecosystem that is supported by regulations, there will be investment opportunities . The battery industry will grow , including battery exchange services as an attractive business model for the community says Erick. Changing the ecosystem of fuel vehicles to electric vehicles is a step towards realizing energy security, converting imported energy consumption into domestic energy, reducing transportation operating costs, and reducing emissions so that the environment is cleaner.

Most beautifully designed hotel. Hotel Tiing is being called the most beautifully designed hotel of the year the third annual Dezeen Awards, which recognizes the best architecture, interior and design projects around the world. the Tiing is designed to help guests to unwind and reconnect, architect Nic Brunsdon said he knew that he wanted the hotel to frame the landscape. To do this, he designed seven ‘blades,’ consisting of upper- and lower-level guest suites, that propel out from a central space.
Located in the seaside town of in Tejakula on Bali’s less touristy north coast, the Tiing Hotel is a two-and-half hour drive through the jungle from the airport in Denpasar.
With a name that means “bamboo”, The Tiing’s short life-cycle mirrors the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on one of the world’s favourite tourist destinations. Nice place to be stuck. And with Bali announcing it will remain closed until at least 2021, sweet tariffs to be paying for the privilege of enjoying a place that hasn’t been so low-key since the 1970s.
Again on the radar as a praise-worthy architectural exercise, Brunsdon’s conception for such a culturally-responsive Balinese resort has made it through to the shortlist of the third annual Dezeen Awards, which has culled 4300 international submissions to showcase what it considers the greatest of the recently finished buildings, interiors, landscapes and furnishings.In the 42 categories, and of the 187 potential finalists sorted out by one of the globe’s leading online architectural journals, Australia has 13 entries in architecture and interiors.

The Tiing, which was leading the People’s Choice category for hospitality buildings at the time of publishing, is one of the two offshore entries made by Australian studios that are in the running for the main awards to be announced at the end of November, joining Koning Eizenberg’s very interesting arrested decay redevelopment of a children’s museum in a lightening-hit building in Pittsburg in the US.

Bali home 100 year old which reveals a love story that began between a magical place on Earth and the people who fell in love with it. On the outskirts of Ubud, in Bali, Indonesia, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, is this tranquil, ecological reserve for the Hindus—this is also where two rivers meet. The Campuhan Ridge Preserve, which still retains the charm of a bygone era, is a source of inspiration for countless artists and creatives. With this fascinating natural setting as a backdrop, Maximilian Jencquel, founder and director of Studio Jencquel, envisioned the Rumah Purnama villa which translates to “the house of the full moon” in Bahasa.
The mystical context of the landscape inspired the home’s design. “The restoration process revealed the bare bones of the 100 year old home. While digging, we found a carved wooden sculpture, which we restored, and a python with 12 eggs which, according to Hindu beliefs, represents the reincarnation of the owners’ ancestors. In essence, this house is the continuation of a love story that began more than 100 years ago between a magical place on Earth and the people who fell in love with it,” says Maximilian.Focusing on the breathtaking views and the local context was priority during the restoration. From the outside, Rumah Purnama blends in seamlessly with nature, largely due to its material palette of natural materials such as tropical wood and an alang-alang roof
The original structure of wantilan (traditional pagoda, Balinese style) was retained, as a way of preserving Ubud’s cultural heritage. The two-story volume faces east, where the moonrise is framed behind the jungle and, to the northeast, you can view the sacred Gunung Agung volcano.

Bali 90 kilometres run in 12 hours from the island’s northern shore to its south to raise $10,000 for struggling children in Bali. Jamin Heppell ran 90 kilometres and raised $10,000 to raise funds for children and families he saw struggling with the economic ramifications of a tourist exodus As people were scrambling for toilet paper in Australia’s first coronavirus lockdown, Heppell was just starting to find his feet in Bali. He had travelled there to be with his German partner to wait out the storm.Using the internet to find other like-minded nomads, they banded together to go “villa shopping” and were shocked by the prices, since most tourists had left Bali. Tourism directly employs 10 per cent of Indonesia’s workers, or about 12 million workers. But with tourists returning home en masse, Heppell could see the disruption on the streets. There hasn’t been a food shortage but there have been problems with food distribution,” he said. So Heppell decided he had to do something to help. What initially started as a personal goal was quickly transformed into a charity run.
Inspired by an enigmatic 58-year old French man running the Mont Blanc 90km stretch, Heppell decided that it was finally his year to do an ultramarathon.I made a commitment to myself. I said regardless of what happens to that event, I’m going to do 90 kilometres on that weekend, no matter where I am in the world,” he said.After about a month being in Bali and recognising the economic devastation that the whole COVID thing had caused because of a lack of tourism, I thought I wanted to turn it into a fundraiser because I’ve been so privileged and so well taken care of while I’ve been here.
Heppell and his coach devised a training regime, mapped a route and set up a support team.Two weeks out from my 90-kilometre run I formalised this partnership with Bali Hope Bali Children Foundation, and set a target of 9K for 90K,” Heppell said.I got going at 3:30am, I had a scooter in front of me and scooter behind me, and every five kilometres I had a support car that would prepare a whole bunch of food and liquid.Just three weeks later, Heppell has already exceeded his goal, raising $10,000 for the Bali Children Foundation.
