An orientation drive through the historical sections of Semarang begins this truly delightful day of touring. Leaving the city behind, you’ll head through the lush tropical landscape of rural central Java as you make your way to Ambarawa Village, home of the Ambarawa Railway Museum and where you will board your antique steam train. Before getting underway, a brief visit is made to the well-maintained train museum which is set around the grounds of the old railway station. Here, you’ll find a substantial collection of well-restored classic locomotives, with the oldest dating back to 1891.
Boarding an original passenger coach complete with vintage wooden benches, your picturesque train journey to Tuntang Station (passing through Rawa Pening lake) and back to Ambarawa Station. From either side of your train car, you’ll find some splendid scenic vistas of rice paddies, small creeks, local houses and dazzling Rawa Pening ( literally meaning 'Clear Swamp', from the Javanese Bening) with backdrop of majestic mountains.
Arriving at Ambarawa Train Museum, you’ll disembark and rejoin your coach for the drive to a Mesastilla coffee plantation. This is an excellent opportunity to see up-close Javanese coffee trees with their beans in various stages of ripening, clinging to the branches. Your hosts at the plantation are happy to share with you their knowledge of coffee and the process of how the beans are grown and then made into the final coffee product. A buffet Lunch will be served before it’s time to board your coach for the relaxing drive back to Semarang City.
