Hello,

I will be in Bali at the end of September 2016 and want to make some trips to probably Labuan Bajo and then to Jakarta from either Labuan Bajo or Denpasar (all by plane). As I am not sure about my schedule I would like to book the different flights just two or three days in advance when I am in Bali. Could anyone tell me if that is easily possible or do I have to expect the flights to be fully booked this time of the year.
Thanks for any advice.

Do the Indonesians use MSG in the food?
If so, can I ask them not to use it in my dish and what would be the correct phrase?

Second question is how to let them know that I would like to have my meal Not spicy? I have quite low tolerance when it comes to spicy meals, unfortunately.
Thank you.

Hi all
I need to get from Bali to Semarang and back in July 2016. We are a family with 3 young children (4 -7) and I would prefer to fly than bus it. Any suggestions regarding booking a cheapish ticket? (Living in Australia) I'll be in Bali for about 3 days ahead of this, should I wait till I arrive? Also any suggestions for a suitable mid price hotel. I have looked at a few including Santika Premiere and am waiting (vainly I think)for them to email me back, Seems I might have to book 2 rooms…

Hello,
We will have several hours in Jakarta airport, our plane arrives at midnight to the international terminal and we have a flight booked at 5 am to continue on a domestic airline, from terminal 1.
I am trying to find out, where to spend the few hours at the airport .

Once we clear the immigration and the customs, should we stay at the terminal 2 for few hours before heading to terminal 1, or is it easier to find the resting place at the terminal 2?

Would you mind to recommend what to do…

Next time I get to Indo, I want to buy a few things, and send them home. Long time ago, I used to send parcels surface mail, from Bali to Germany. It needed months to arrive, but always arrived safely in the end.

Do they still do the moderately priced surface mail parcels from Indonesia to other countries? I'm not sure yet how big it will be, but most likely it will have between 10 and 20 kg. How much will that be, surface mail to Germany?

Unfortunately I still don't speak enough Bahasa to…

From March 2nd, visa (for citizens from 169 countries) is no more required for entry/exiting from some Indonesian land crossings.

http://www.kemlu.go.id/rome/en/pages/visa-exemption-for-short-visit.aspx

In the list there are also:

  1. Napan, Atambua
  2. Skouw, Jayapura

So from March, 2016 can I cross to Indonesia coming overland from East Timor and PNG without any visa? Anybody has any first hand report if that is true?

We are going to Sulawesi, will bring the international driving license, which is for driving cars, not the motorcycles.
I know that it does not cover the motorcycle riding, but in all the honestly we have done the same in Vietnam, Thailand and never had any problems.

What is the reality, from my readings, it seems that many tourists do rent a motorcycle without having a proper motorcycle driving license. Are the local policemen strict, do they let the Westerners be, what to do if they stop us…
