Got bitten by the outdoor bug? We scoured the city to help you gear yourself for your next big adventure.
Of course city life is amazing, and we wouldn’t trade it for anything. With little luxuries like on-call mani-pedis, and martabak manis delivered straight to your door at any hour of the day, why would we? But considering that Indonesia is home to some of the best camping destinations in the world, it wouldn’t hurt to go on a wild adventure once in awhile. To help you get started (you city slickers, you) we’ve rounded up the best outdoor gear stores so you can get well-equipped.
