1 month in Indo - enough for Bali/Lombok/Gilis?

Posted by cpicking92 on 31/1/2015 at 09:13

Hi guys After doing a month in Vietnam and a month in Cambodia I will be heading to Indo. I'm planning on flying from Siem Reap to Denpasar, is this the most economic way of travelling this route both time and cost wise? We are keeping our fingers crossed that funds last long enough for us to extend our visa in order to get an extra 2 or 3 weeks but at the moment the minimum we can guarantee ourselves is a month. Based on this which areas of Bali and Lombok would people recommend (I think we ...

Looking to share 4WD from Cemoro Lawang to Malang in Feb 2015

Posted by aniljustus on 4/2/2015 at 09:36

Hi, We're 2 Singaporean mid-30's travellers visiting Mount Bromo in Feb 2015. We're looking to save cost by sharing a 4WD with another 2 like-minded travellers from Cemoro Lawang to Malang on 21st Feb 2015 morning. The trip is through the Savannah / Ngadas route, so we can break our journey by making photo stops at interesting places (e.g. Tenggerese village at Ngadas and the Savannah) - we are still in the midst of researching on 4WD hire rates. If anyone's keen, please ping me. Cheers, Anil ...

Getting from Banda Aceh to Ketambe

Posted by PhoBoy on 26/1/2015 at 05:39

Hello! My girlfriend and I are planning to travel around Indonesia for about 3 weeks in February. We will fly into Banda Aceh and head straight to Pulau Weh for a few days. After Pulau Weh we are hoping to head to Ketambe as it seems like it will offer a more authentic jungle trekking experience than Bukit Lawang. One concern I do have is I have not been able to find any definitive information on travel from Banda Aceh to Ketambe. From what I have gathered there are no longer flights to ...

Help with filling in some gaps on my itinerary

Greetings all, I've narrowed down my itinerary for a three week trip, including Malaysia and Singapore briefly. Kuala Lumpur Singapore Jakarta Bogor ? Bandung ? Yogyakarta Surabaya ? Bali I'm particularly interested in seeing how different parts of the world have responded to globalization and modernization. But I would also really like to see the areas OUTSIDE that sphere of influence. Things a bit more local and provincial. So the big cities have been really easy to narrow down, they're on ...

Air Asia crash

Posted by SBE on 4/1/2015 at 07:56

Just surprised there's been absolutely no comment about it on here! I only found out yesterday when my son in France texted asking if I'd noticed anything strange about Air Asia recently, said no but don't have easy internet access at the moment ... he said one crash and one plane overshooting the runway in the last few days. My reaction was WOW....and I made the effort to get to the nearest dreadfully slow wifi to find out more. Nobody else interested in this story on here?? Seems the plane ...

Should I go to Senggigi?

Posted by denise21 on 9/8/2014 at 23:33

Hi - I am flying into Lombok airport and have enough time for 2 destinations before heading to Bali. I definitely want to go to Gili Air. For my other stop, would you recommend Senggigi on the mainland or going to a second island, Gili Trawangan? For background, I am a female, solo traveler in my 30's. I typically enjoy staying in budget, bohemian style beach huts/bungalows with a cool restaurant or common area where people hang out. I like a laid back atmosphere - not a ton of people, but enou ...

Dear all, we want to fly to Java in November. Our interests are historical/archaeology, landscapes. Total travel would be three weeks max, but shorter is fine as well. here below are our very rough ideas so far. Would be great if someone has some more ideas and can say something about how long we should be staying somewhere. Also, we have no idea on how to get around a place. Ordered a travel guide twice, and both seem to have vanished. Note: we live in a country with close to useless postal se ...
