WhatsApp & Signal +62 851 0092 6985. Greetings of the never-ending travelling season! My name is Fares Chandra; a travel guide and English interpreter in my hometown of Palembang City, South Sumatera Province - Indonesia. My guiding motto is "Plan it like Squidward, tour it like Spongebob!" --which means that I meticulously observe the details in planning your itineraries yet during the tour I can be highly flexible to adjust with abrupt changes from numerous variables. Looking forward to arranging and accompanying your most impressive stay in Sumatera :-)
My life in pictures

A guest is visiting you. Where is the first place you take them?

The not-much-known, city's only Park of Religious Harmony.

Why do you like showing people around?

Their feedback allows me a most precious learning opportunities and perspective-broadening on societal living and religio-cultural dynamics in their vicinities of residence.

What is your favorite place in the world and why?

The Peak of Jaya in Papua Island. It is Southeast Asia's only snowy mountaintop --and sadly now declining rapidly in size due to global warming.

What are your hobbies outside of being a local guide?

Mind-adventuring with Role Playing Games.

Whats your most memorable moment while on a tour?

When my alarm clock was somehow dysfunctional to wake me up early, but in the end I managed to make up for it to my guests by surprisingly bringing & introducing them to the city's only historian from their country (who also speaks their native language). In the end of the tour they said that the agenda was totally unexpected yet very much welcomed.

What kinds of things did you have to go through to become a licensed tour guide for your city?

In numerous vicinities --sadly include mine-- getting a tiue guiding license is more of a political than professional matter, and I'm staying away from it.

Pineapple on pizza. yes or no?

No. Sorry my stomach is not that powerful. But raw egg-yolk with turmeric in a Jamu (Indonesian traditional herbal mixtures) drink? Definitely yes!

What outdoor activity haven’t you tried, but would like to?
