Messages: 67,707 - Threads: 9,118
I am travelling to the Philippines on 23rd December for 4 weeks. We arrive into Manila and are wondering if we should stay in Manila for Christmas Day? What is there to do in Manila on Christmas Day? Or should we leave Manila for a better Philippines experience at Christmas? Any advice would be much appreciated!
can anyone please tell me what time Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta is open for visitors and if it is possible to visit on a Friday.
cant seem to find any opening times online.
I was hoping someone could give me some advice. My girlfriend and I are looking to travel to Indonesia around Dec and will have about 1/2 months to play with. It seems such a large country with so many places to see that's its been a bit of a nightmare to sort out a basic itinerary as a starting point. Does anyone have any recommendations on a route and list of absolute must see places/experiences?
Both of us want to soak up as much culture as possible in that time but don't want to feel that we are simply rushing around and just skipping from place to place to tick off items on list.
Searching for a travel buddy to backpack through Malaysia Peninsula around 10th june till 27th june :-)
I'm going to Malaysia for a month this July and am getting a bit worried about the health risks when I read the CDC website or other infectious disease centers. We want to see some jungle and rural areas but we also want to spend time in cities and beaches. Is the vaccine for Japanese encephalitis really necessary? it will set me back about 1000 euros (for three people) and we won't be in the jungle the whole time. Thanks for any advice or experience sharing.
I read somewhere recently that Sunrise resort was putting in a pool. Are there building works going on now or is it already up and running ?
Nice work, LP. Your chapter guide in NTT completely ignores lembata island. Was there a volcano or earthquake I didnt hear about. That,s the last of my money you,ll ever receive.
Got caught out today for the first time with a one-way ticket to Manila and needed to buy a last minute return at the airport Has anyone else had this problem? I've put more details on my blog:
