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…

I would like to ask you for an advice.
As we plan to explore couple places in Sulawesi -Tomohon and Rantepao, to do walks, drive around, we started to look for maps and did not find any -especially for Tomohon.
We will have a smartphone with us and were thinking about downloading maps and using them off line along with the GPS inside the phone.
Would you recommend any map application that covers those areas well?
Which one do you use?

I’m going on a three-week trip to Bali/Java in approximately two months. I realize that one certainly can’t learn much of a language in such a short amount of time. But my previous travels have taught me that learning a little can still go a long way for basic polite communication and showing goodwill.

Do you have any recommendations for books, CDs, or websites that might help? I’d particularly like to be able to pronounce things more or less correctly, know some standard phrases, and have a…

Hello Folks

We're taking the ferry from Java to Bali, arriving at Gilmanuk. We're staying a few nights at the Menjangan Resort (http://www.themenjangan.com/) and have been offered a lift from the ferry port at, to me, astronomical cost. It seems close and I have learnt enough "indonesian" to be able to ask someone to take me somewhere. Will there be freelance drivers at the ferry port at Gilmanuk who will know how to get to The Menjangan and any idea of a rough cost?

Thanks

Graham

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a boat between Karimunjawa islands and Kalimantan ? I'm planning a trip in Indonesia and I'd like to go to Tanjung Puting reserve after Karimunjawa islands.

Thanks for your help.

I'm thinking of visiting Bali as a solo traveller next month, although I only have a week off work to do it. I'm travelling from the U.K, so it's quite a long way to go for such a short trip.

Would really welcome some advice on whether it's worth waiting until I can spend more time there, or ideas on a breif itinerary. My interest is in the cultural aspects and beauty spots - temples, volacanos, rice paddies etc.

Thanks!

Hi All Again,

Thank you for all the useful insights for the topic about car rental! All are very helpful.

Please see below my final itinerary, hope it's realistic and achievable.

Day #1 – Arrival to Denpasar Airport – I guess we will stay in Denpasar at night as we arrive around 7 p.m
Day #2 – Stay in Legian or around Jimbaran just to see south of Bali – Uluwatu, Padang Padang beach, Kuta, Seminyak etc.
Day #3 – Head up to Ubud through Sukawati, Celuk Village, Pura Batuan, Tegenungan waterfall…
