Hello all,

We are a 28 year-old couple from France planning to go to Indonesia (or else Laos) in February.
Flight tickets are very cheap (under 500 Euros) to land in Jakarta. We would stay for 3 weeks. So... I read a few topics about going to Indonesia in February / March. I was a bit skeptical about going there during the rainy season, now I tend to be a bit reassured. Before asking any questions, here's a bit of information about us and how we would travel there :

Hello, I'm visiting Indonesia for the first time (will be my 36th country but have only been 5 days in Bangkok for Southeast Asia) as a solo female traveler with not much hiking experience but it's an interest I'd like to explore.
I have 16 days
I'll arrive in Jakarta late evening of October 15, and plan to take next available flight directly to Yogyakarta without leaving airport (or train if no good options) explore temples around there and Dieng Plateau, then head to Mt Bromo and Ijen. I tend to…

Hello
we are thinking of going to North Sumatra for 2 -3 weeks with our babies (3 months (by then!) and 2 y.o.). We live in Hanoi so travel to Sumatra is short (via KL), but we are still asking ourselves whether it is appropriate to travel with a just newborn. So some questions:

  • how is the weather, good for travel? - I was told that North Sumatra should be fine in January but I want to double check

  • is it in general advisable infrastructure (hospital, travel) wise?

Hi,

Preparing for the next leg of my Indonoisya trip I have a few questions. Just in case there's a rainy day at your end please share any thoughts that might help me...

  1. I found a cheap flight from Manado to Galela near Tobelo, have read about Danau Galela earlier on, but wonder if there's any place to stay in that area or that Galela is nothing more than the airport for Tobelo, making that the obvious place to stay.

  2. From there I will head to Sofifi and wonder if there's…

Hi,

My husband and I are planning a trip to Indonesia in September next year. We want to stay in Bali for a week and to all the sights and then just flop for the second week and do some snorkelling, discovery dives, eat nice food and a few drinks in the evening but nothing crazy. We were looking into the Gilis but I can't bring myself to do it because of the mode of transport on the islands. May sound silly but that's just me :-). Anyway, could anyone please recommend any islands similar to…

Hi!

I'm booking a last minute trip since I have a week off from work. I would love to get any advice on where to go and stay as a female solo traveler. I love hiking, beautiful scenaries, cultural establishments and delicious food! Definitely not looking to party.

Hi,

I just came across some quiet old threats looking for a budget but safe komodo liveaboard next month.
I am planning to go to Labuan Bajo in october 2016 to do a 3 - 4 day liveaboard diving trip. It seems to be that there are loads of dive operators and I wondered if it's better to book in advance or just take it from there, since we will have two weeks in Flores only. Furthermore I am looking for some specific recommendations for a budget but definitely safe operator.
I appreciate every…

I'm thinking about visiting West Sumatra next July or August, but am wondering what the smog situation tends to be there. Thinking Bukittingi, the coast, Maninjau area. My daughter has asthma so I have to factor in air quality, and I don't know when the smog season is at its peak in that area. Thanks.
