Budget Travel Indonesia | Pulau Weh (Sabang) | Indonesia's Kilometer Zero
After our hearty breakfast at Freddie's, our taxi driver was already waiting for us. We just booked the same taxi that we came with to take us around the whole day. The fee was Rp. 600,000 including fetching us again the next day to go back to the jetty (I have forgotten a lot of details, I'll have to check this again hehe).
We directly went to the Kilometer Zero site before our sea activity at Iboih. It took us around 30-40 minutes of traveling on hilly terrain and bumpy road to reach this very western tip of Weh island and essentially Indonesia's :D.
We passed by the road to Pria Anak Laut waterfall and Iboih along the way too.

When we reached the site, there was a construction taking place. I think they were building a tower and renewing the site; but luckily we could still take some good photos of that Kilometer Zero stone feature ^^.
There was no entrance fee charged but we paid for our parking ticket, around Rp3,000.
There were a number of food and souvenir stalls on the road side, all looking like temporary or mock-up stalls. Not very pretty to the eyes, but we didn't mind it at all because the Indian Ocean lays majestic just over the cliff and the view was simply uh-ma-zing..
The deep blue ocean looked rather daunting to me.
There were monkeys everywhere here. So be careful if you are holding food =D

We sat at one of the stalls and had some local snacks with air kelapa (coconut water); of them all, this one stuck in my mind ..
..boiled soy beans. They were surprisingly so gooooood ^^
And then we were off to Iboih for a day of swimming ^^
