If you are tired of life in a metropolitan city with its sky scrapers, you should take a few days off to stay in the Dragon village within Neglasari village, Salawu sub-district, Tasikmalaya, West Java.
This 1.5 hectares village is still 'green' and not influenced by modernization. Some 311 people live in this village. You will have to take several hundred steps to cover the villages over 500 meters. You will see hundreds of high ebony trees, large green paddy fields and the long Ciwulang river. In addition, you will feel the cool air and sounds of river waterflows in the distance.
Although you are not allowed to listen to your iPod, you could hear birds sing, waters flow, winds blow, insects and frogs and see many shaddy trees. To stay overnight, you have to ask for permission from local officials a few days in advance.
To reach the Dragon Village, you can take an airplane from Jakarta to Husein Sastranegara airport in Bandung. From there, you can rent a car or use public transportation to Tasikmalaya or Garut.
