Helloo everyone, how was your Lebaran holiday?
Be it travelling abroad or local, or simply just enjoying your quality time with your loved ones in the perfect Jakarta’s traffic. I hope that it was a great one for you and your family!
As for myself, my family decided to go for UK on this year hari Raya. I never fancy a tour trip before. But this one is kinda different. I quite enjoyed the 2 weeks of tour trip conducted by Indonesia local travel agent.
I am not sure if it’s the schedule that was quite free for us to roam around the cities, or the fun tour-mates that we had. Haha.
Anyway, we took a 13hrs and 45 mins flight that goes directly to Manchester from Singapore. and since we are in Manchester, guess Old Trafford is the right place to visit for the very first destination.
Well, i am not a big fan of football actually. So i did not have that butterfly on my stomach kinda feeling like others may had. But to be honest, i am very impressed by this second biggest stadium in England, somehow it just sparks ‘magic’ to those who visited them.
Manchester United is one of the football’s most successful club. Big Thanks to Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devil’s former manager. Even though i don’t really understand how the football industries work. But Sir Alex Ferguson must had worked his a*s off to make this team to be one of the world-known football team.
I think not many football club have their own stadium. And their’s is the largest football club stadium in all over England. What an achievement, isn’t it?
Moreover, they have their own stadium and museum tour. Whereby all MU and football fans from all around the world can taste the glorious home base of Manchester United!
We got our ticket for 16 GBP (SGD 28 // IDR 278.000) for the 1 hr stadium and museum tour. We supposed to see the whole stadium and the changing room with other rooms too. But since we were late for our appointed tour. We can only visit the main stadium only. =(.. If you’re not going with the tour (who already help you to arrange everything), You can purchase it online as well, and see the available time slot. and Remember, Dont be Lateeee..
And for you who could not wait to buy their souvenirs, fret not!
Just walk out from the museum, and walk to the other side of the stadium and you’ll find the megastore!
FunFact : Gelora Bung Karno ( Jakarta football stadium) is larger than Old Trafford. Where GBK has about 80,000 seats and 76,000 seats for Old Trafford.
*Hopefully Indonesia can have their own stadium tour someday, and every football fans from all around the world will come over to Jakarta just to see GBK.
