TIMESMALAYSIA, BATUBatu City is the place of endless tourism attraction. Established since 18 August 2019, Bumi Kitiran becomes the most favorite place of photographers. This new tourism attraction located in Bumiaji Village becomes a fresh air for the tourists.

This place has a very Instagram-worthy scenery. The valley is now decorated with thousands of colorful propellers (Javanese = kitiran).

The propellers are green, red, yellow, blue, orange, and dark blue. Some of them are in shape of lion head, star, heart, and so many more.

When the wind blows, those colorful propellers spin with a satisfying swish sound.

 “We use these propellers to educate Indonesian children about the traditional Indonesian toys. There are 24,000 propellers installed in this 6,000-meter-square area. Next, we plan to build an educational park,” said Aji, the organizer of this place.

The entrance fee is IDR 10,000. With this very affordable entrance fee, the visitors are free to explore Bumi Kitiran.

Since the establishment, this place keeps improving. They plant some grasses, flowers, and build additional facilities, such as canteens and rest area.

The road leading to this tourism attraction is not in a very good condition. However, the scenery around the road is enjoyable. Bumi Kitiran opens from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. In fact, most visitors enjoy the moment of dusk to capture the most Instagram-worthy moment. (*)
