The island's interior hosts a lush green jungle that can be wholly yours after you have escaped the 'concrete jungle' in your city.
Thanks to the fact that Pulau Tailana, or Pulau Banyak if you like, is not anywhere near a big city or port, and it is sometimes lengthy and even difficult to get to the place, it is not on the radar of tourists nowadays. That ensures you will have this beautiful island only for yourself.

That will show you the real life the Acehnese live, the authentic atmosphere of Aceh.
