We really enjoyed this Worldpackers experience. Our host Hardy and his family were so welcoming and friendly. Our project was to help with videography and social media to promote Temanggung and give advice on how the region can improve to attract more tourists. We got to see so much of the area and the local culture. It was a pretty full (but flexible) schedule, however not all of it felt like work, it was work mixed with exploring! The accommodation was very local and simple, as you would expect but comfortable and homely. The food was also amazing!

Hardi and his family were very sweet and welcoming and their food and cultural experience allowed for me to feel like a true local. They helped to teach some Indonesian and it was fun to immerse myself with an entirely new hobby while exploring what Temanggung had to offer. My only “qualms” with this trip was communication and organization—I wish workdays were more so communicated on in conjunction with days off. If that would have happened, I would have been able to plan more activities on off days. Thanks again Hardi, Diah, and family!

My friend and I had such a good experience, I recommend it 100% ! We had the chance to really live like locals, we learned a lot about Java and its culture. Hardy and his family were great hosts, we felt really welcomed. About the mission, we had the opportunity to see a lot of things : hidden waterfalls, rice harvest, traditional clothes process,… Thank you again Hardy, it was really nice to meet you !

During my time spent in Temanggung, I helped Hardy in his different projects ( tourism promotion, English conversations with the local ). The goal of all of this is to open the beautiful and authentic region of Temanggung to the world. The best thing is that you will have the opportunity to be fully integrated in his family and in his community, and get to know the real Javanese culture. I had the opportunity to learn about the process of Tobacco, coffee, soja and Tea production. I've had such a unique experience thank you again Hardy !!!

This is a very unique and rewarding experience! Hardi was a great and interesting host that has lots of local knowledge. Sometimes there is a lot of waiting around as Indonesian custom is very laid back. The living conditions are very basic as you will be completely integrated into the community and local way of life. I was welcomed into Hardi's house and his wife and kids were so polite and friendly. You will be able to visit some incredible places that have not been affected by over-tourism, making for a real authentic and genuinely local experience. Keep an open mind and you'll have a great
