My girlfriend and I are visiting Bali for 10 days (straight off the back of a packed two weeks in Japan). We are both in our late 20’s and are looking for some great beaches, interesting culture/nightlife and a bit of luxury. Based on some reading, I would like to visit Seminyak for 5 days, followed by 3 days on a Gili island and 1 or 2 days in Ubud to finish off. Very grateful for thoughts on:
(1) Which Gili Island? I thought Gili T sounded like the best base (due to accommodation…
I'm travelling for the next 2 months in Bali and Lombok - late 30s, female, wondering if any other solo travellers are looking for people to meet up with and share the adventure? I'd love to hear from you,
Hi all - I have an unexpected amount of free time and decided I will finally get down to Indonesia to do as much diving as I can with a 60 day visa. In looking at the boats in and around Komodo and Raja Ampat for Sept / Oct (I know I am pretty late to the game) I may be well booked out at my budget. I am wondering if anyone has any insight or experience with being in the main ports like Labuan Bajo and Sarong and book the trip right then and there?
I'd imagine there might be a scenario where…
I bought train tickets from Jakarta to Purwoketo, but now I changed my mind and want to go directly to Yogyakarta, so I will buy also tickets from Purwoketo to Yogya. Can I print these 2 tickets on station in Jakarta, or it is not possible?
i'm make a trip to south of raja ampat(misool) in 12th - 16th september. explore virgin beach, snorkling, freedive,hiking, and find stingless jellyfish lake.
if you are interested to join.
I'm planning to be in Indonesia in mid October for around 10 days. I'm well aware this is not nearly enough but it's all I have.
Because time is limited I was thinking to stay in an island not super difficult to reach but not too touristy.
All I'm looking for is a stunning beach to relax, do some snorkeling and explore the local culture in between swims!
Am I asking for too much? Does this place exist at all?
Indonesia has so many beautiful beaches that my search for a place has become…
Am planning to travel to Borneo in December. Any suggestions for good places to visit which arent touristic hotspots? As far as I read the Malaysian part is more touristic than the Indonesian side.
Any way - I would love to see both Malasyan and Indonesian side.
Is passing the border on land possible? Can I get a visa at the border? (Dutch & Belgian passports)
Local flights in the Malasyan part look easy and cheap. What about the Indonesian part? Are there any direct flights inbetween the…
Hi all, my parents have decided to take my 2 daughters (aged 1 and 2) with them to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur - 5 days) and Indonesia (Landing in Jakarta - 7 days) next month. I thought I should help them plan an itinerary.
I'm hoping to do some research over the next few days myself but I thought I should throw it out there in case anyone has any suggestions for Indonesia.
They haven't been to Indonesia before so it's a blank slate.
I believe they would prefer natural things like water falls…
I found this article in the Jakarta Post today.
I was there a couple of weeks ago and spoke to the man at the Tourist Office, opposite Elios restaurant. I asked about how people using the new airport could get to Tuk Tuk . It seemed that they had to go the long way around the island by a succession of angkots thus negating any time advance gained by using a plane.
This article sounds as though…
So from what I've read February is the wettest month - it would also seem that March is marginally better than January - however I'm aware that being towards the end of the rainy season the potential for land-slides would possibly be greater?
My question, therefore, is do you guys think there's any advantage of visiting these two islands in March or January? Or is it much of a muchness? Or is it a bad idea to go in either month?
Is it generally a case of sunny mornings and rainy afternoons?
