Hi
We have two weeks in Bali at the beginning of October. We are of mature years so probably won't be too adventurous! We would be very grateful for any suggestions for an itinerary as it is our first trip to Bali. Thanks!

Hello,

I'm arriving via Cruise Ship in Probolinggo on Tuesday 9 August for one day and wondering about the availability/options and cost of transport to get around the city attractions. The Bull Racing '€˜Karapan brujul'€™, which is held nearby, sounds interesting . The ships tours are very expensive.

I'd be grateful to receive any information at all about this area. Thanks

Hello,

I'm looking for some advice about public transport in Bali. Is it possible to do this itinerary by bus? Perama or some other way? I travel solo, so taxi's are quite expensive.

Airport or central Denpasar to Ubud
Ubud to Lovina Beach
Lovina Beach to Munduk
Munduk to Candidasa
Candidasa to Denpasar

I would like to avoid the big masses and see something more of local life or rural areas. Do you have some advice, please?

Thank you very much!

Went to this small lake on a motorbike, its about 22km east from Ruteng on the road towards Bajawa. Its easy enough for most tourists with a private car and driver to stop and have a look around. Its quite beautiful and peaceful with almost noone there.

Except the current charge from 'national park' people is 100k per person for foreigners (plus vehicle costs)! The sign displaying prices is only in Indonesian, and when we went, the guy only appeared conveniently after we returned from the lake…

So after a long day working in Jakarta, I planned to take a vacation on my day off to Bali.
Most of the sites would suggest Sanur and Kuta but I believe those beaches will be full of people during vacation and I am afraid I wouldn't find the peace I need there.

So I googled and I found some interesting article here: 6 secluded white beaches on Bali

Anyway, I need the real review, comment, or whatsoever instead of just articles from web that sometimes overrated the beach. Is there any travelers…

Hi,
Searched TT for advice on train from Yogja tot Malang, but seems all quite old and time tables happen to change.

We are a family, with two kids (6 & 7) about to take off tomorrow for a trip to Indonesia. We will be travelling from Yogja to Malang and thought about taking the train as it should be more comfy and nice for the kids.

It seems tot take about 7-8 hours, but I think that is the direct train. A while ago it seemed quicker tot take an express to Surabay and then on to Malang. But…

I found a well reviewed and competent tour company for Surabaya Bromo Ijen Ketapang. I was about to book with them but the private tour is about $250 USD more than I feel comfortable spending.
They said that an individualized tour is, by nature, going to be more costly.
Any single women, pairs or couples wanting to share a tour with us? We're an adult Mother daughter pair who want to visit the national parks but hoping for spontaneity android trying to keep away from the crowds whenever…

Hi,

i am going to west sumatra in august for 2 weeks.
Last 4 days are already booked (ecolodge, south Padang).

It seems that travelling takes time as there is no great transporation systems.
So it seems there is 3 options I guess :

  • bukitingi and the region : maninjau lac, harau valley...
    Question : is there enough to see for 9 days ?

  • Kerinci Seblok national park and Kerinci volcano
    Question : there is debate on websites on wether it is worth the trip (rhinoceros, tigers, lot of…
