This year the festival will be held from 8 to 10 August. Should go booking air ticket from Jakarta or Bali to Sentani (Jayapura airport) and especially Sentani to Wamena (major city from which you go to the festival, which can only come flying). It is also essential to consider accommodation, especially if you intend to go independently; you probably will not find room if you do not book it before. A good idea is to contact a local guide. We have a friend there, Onesius Lokobal, and he helped us…
Se preveé que este año el festival se celebrará los días 8 al 10 de agosto. Conviene ir reservando pasaje de avión, desde Jakarta o Bali hasta Sentani (el aeropuerto de Jayapura) y sobre todo de Sentani a Wamena (ciudad importante desde la que se va al festival, a la cual sólo se puede llegar volando). Igualmente es imprescindible ir considerando alojamiento ya, sobre todo si se pretende ir de manera independiente; es muy probable que si se busca a la llegada se tengan dificultades para…
normally it is more interesting to change money in town rather than in the airport. Is it the case for Jakarta also ?
But in case of late arrival and no possibilities in town is it better to make change at the international airport or domestic airport ?
Thanks for your advices.
I am looking for some advise for our upcoming trip to Sulawesi.
A bit of background:
- I did my homework, the LP has been read inside out, and I searched the forum various times ;) Still, I would appreciate some help / ideas on the current plan.
- We only have 20-21 days in Sulawesi, and therefore wanted to limit the trip to the North. I realize that it is possible to cross from South to North or the other way round in 3 weeks, however, sounds like too much time on busses for my…
Does someone here as experience with tiket.com for booking train tickets on Java in advance.
We would like to book all our train tickets in advance, but I read a lot of different things about this site.
Is it trustworthy? Because they seem to be the only site that accept European visa cards.
Thanks for the information.
We are looking for self-contained accommodation in Ubud in June or July 2017.
Must have at least one bedroom/ensuite, living/dining area, kitchen. Private pool would be good, but not essential.
Looking to spend around AUD1500 for the month.
Can anyone suggest any websites or any recommendations of any villas.
Is the budget realistic or "pie in the sky"?
I will arrive at the Kuala Lumpur Indonesian Embassy soon to process KITAS. I already have the TELEX authorization from DirJen Imigrasi, Jakarta. Can anyone review what I need to complete the process at KBRI, KL?
- Process Fee? I'm not sure what it is. Perhaps 150K IDR? will they except either rupiah or ringgit?
- Photos. Size and number?
- Application form. Is there a form I need, and if so, do you know where I can download it from?
- Anything else I need to know?
In late October, I have two free days in Jakarta before heading to Papua. After jetlag recovery, I am hoping to fill my time with a bus tour of Jakarta and perhaps a day trip to Bogor Gardens (are they worth a visit?). Are there any hop on hop off buses in JK? Online search said one started in 2014 but I can't find any links to it. If not, other suggestions for bus tours would be most welcome. I'm a female traveling alone so prefer to be part of a group rather than striking out on my own…
