What foreigners "bule" though about Aceh

Wednesday, 15 April 2015

Join couch surfing  make me meet foreigners all around the world and that make me know about other country and culture from that people or culture from the country they visited before came to my city. I am living in Banda Aceh Indonesia, a famous city with Islamic law and that make foreign people afraid to visit Aceh (this is the fact what they thought about Aceh before they visit here), Of course this is not good for Aceh itself because the reality is not like that, what I can say Aceh is a peaceful  city with friendly people who life there. 

As a couch surfing member I have been hosted some foreigners and they look so happy here in Banda Aceh and they want to stay for longer. Sometimes media write about  bad issue not reality but well, here is what foreign people thought about Aceh before they visit here and after stayed in Aceh.

What foreigners thought about Aceh before they visit here:
Aceh is an Islamic strict city who not care about woman, all woman force to wear hijab, man like to bother woman, syariah police will cought woman and man who not obey the role and will whip all who against"  this all issue make them afraid to visit Aceh and most of them asked me this question when they requested to stay at my house

My only answer for this all is " The good way to know everything is not just listen but prove it and you are welcome to Aceh" I dont want to say Aceh is nice place or friendly people but what I want is came and see by yourself.

Of course it make them worried at the first but some who brave came to visit to Banda Aceh and they face by their own experience and I really appreciate this kind people, not just listen but brave to experience.

So....after they visited Aceh, what they think or listen is   different, here is what foreigners people thought about Aceh after visited:

Aceh is peaceful place to visit, very nice view, beautiful beach, friendly people, they respect non-muslim and not force them to wear hijab and just to wear police, even they asked to wear hijab when go to big mosque and this is to respect muslim belief, people like to smile and treat well, Aceh a nice place to visit and wish to visit Aceh again in future"

See........ we can prove to other people from all around the world, Aceh is a good place to visit, just prove tham that what they think about Aceh is wrong, the real is Aceh always welcome to all people and respect each other can make everything in good situation.

 The moral from this story is
Show your good manner and other will respect to you, don't just listen but prove it, you will never know the real if you never prove it. 

SO welcome to my beautiful land and  enjoy your time #visitBandaAceh #visitIndonesia
