One month on Java, Bali and Lombok

Posted by stevenjmartin on 16/3/2015 at 17:38

Hi there, I'd appreciate any advice you have for our upcoming trip to Indonesia. I've already written this post once and forgot to enter a topic title and lost the whole thing - hopefully it won't happen again! Me and my girlfriend are visiting Indonesia for one month. We land in Jakarta, and plan to take the train to Yogyakarta, visit Borobudur, and then travel onwards to Mount Bromo overland (via Surabaya?) before taking the ferry to Bali. How much time would you devote to this part of our t ...

Itinerary advice for Bali/Lombok travel during Jan/Feb.

Posted by Sniksah on 29/9/2014 at 21:33

We (2 of us) are traveling to Indonesia for 6-8 weeks during January and February. We're aware that it's the rainy season but our schedules only really allow us to travel during this time. We've travelled to Southeast Asia before but have never been to Indonesia and are curious as to how much the trip will be affected by the weather. We've only just begun our planning but are very interested in Bali, Lombok, and Gili and are open to any suggestions of places we may not be aware of yet. We're no ...

Lombok beaches

Posted by somtam2000 on 14/3/2015 at 08:05

As I just got asked about this by email, thought would post something quick here as well -- if you're a beach bum thinking about Lombok, don't make the mistake of thinking Senggigi and the Gilis are the best of it. You've got Gili Gede to the south and while it doesn't have great beaches itself, you can do snorkelling trips to Gili Layan and Gili Ringgit -- they're great. Also on the south coast from there you have Mekaki Beach, which is just magnificent. Further along the south coast you ...

Using Tiket2.com for booking flights in Indonesia

Posted by busylizzy on 28/1/2015 at 19:13

I wanted to book a flight with Wings Air (via the Lion Air website) before my arrival in Indo, due to a tight timeframe. After several unsuccessful attempts, a quick bit of Google research told me that many people have problems with this website accepting their overseas credit cards. I thought that I had booked online with them before, but maybe not...? I decided to try Tiket2.com, the Indonesia flight search/booking site and managed to book the required flights (Bali->Sumbawa, with a shor ...

Right now the plan is: Jakarta (2 nights) -- Yogyakarta (2 nights) -- Lombok (5 nights) -- Gili A ...

Wae Rebo 2015

Posted by ibalance48 on 7/3/2015 at 04:44

Our trip started in Labuanbajo where we were met by our driver/guide, Hironimus (081237084084). He was a class act throughout the trip and even called to make sure we made it home safely after flight was delayed. It took around 5 hours to drive to Dintor, but we made a number of stops for pictures, buying fruit and having lunch. At Dintor we stayed at Wae Rebo Lodge, which is surrounded by rice fields with glorious views of the coast and mountains. Our host was Martinos (081237121903 or 085239 ...

Motorbike Touring in Bali

Posted by jmail1 on 17/2/2015 at 15:11

We're making our 12th trip to Bali in March and have explored Southern Bali and most of Ubud exhaustively. I've done the drive up to Lovina a couple of times, and we've done the Bratan/Batur route a few times. For those that enjoy being on a bike can you tell me your favorite routes to take? We'll be based out of Ubud and hope to rent a Tiger, if not then a Bison or similar. Most likely we'll get up around 6am and ride for 5-6 hours then come back and relax. If there is a must-do route ...

Nano sim card for iPad Air in Bali

Posted by jmail1 on 17/2/2015 at 15:00

Heading to Bali in March and want to be able to use my iPad Air on the fastest possible network for about a week. simPATI is what I've continually read about, but everyone talks about it for an iPhone. The procedure for activating it requires a series of texting steps that can't be performed in an iPad. Does anyone have a recommendation of a shop that will let me purchase and then activate for me on one of their phones? The plan I've been reading about costs about 300,000rp for about 3GB of dat ...
