This is a town you have to give a chance. Stay some days and go to the beaches (fantastic) not only to popo.
Go to waterfalls, and all the old religious tempels/candi for hindu/buddist times.see the caves, dam and relax at the riverside in the evening. And bring a big smil, peolpe is stopping you all over for to take a photo with you (i am blond western). go see inside the mosque there is many. Food is the best in indonesia but it is not many places with western food. Take train or taxi to come here, the buses are insane crazy. And you will not meet other tourist here yet. recomended city too see, dont wait to it is to late, hidden pearl.
