New Visa Rules for Indonesia (60 days) ?

Posted by misscherie on 12/3/2010 at 00:38

Hi there, I am hoping to spend 6 weeks in Indonesia in September and just read that there has been a sudden visa change for Indonesia "(2/1/2010) In a dramatic change to the current immigration rules, starting on January 26, 2010, foreign tourists from countries eligible for "visa-on-arrival" will now be given a 30 day visa that can be renewed for an additional 30 days." My question is, does anyone know how exactly this works? When you arrive in Indonesia, do you automatically get the ...

Cycling trip in Flores

Posted by Mirresmirre88 on 14/2/2017 at 23:53

Hi everyone! Was hoping to get some advice for my upcoming trip. This April I'll have three weeks to cycle Flores or parts of it. I'd also like to combine the cycling with some diving and volcano trekking. Has anyone got some tips for a rough itinerary? Do you know a place to hire a mountain bike in Flores? I'll have to catch at least three flights to reach the island and I'm guessing transporting a bicycle would be rather costly. Also, are the road conditions tolerable? Any advice is highly ...

1 week in southern Indonesia - Ideas?

Posted by mikeilowry on 9/2/2017 at 09:28

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. I'm a geologist doing 5 weeks of research across southern Indonesia. I'll probably be spending most of my time in coastal villages and beaches around Yogya, Bali, Lombok and Timor. After the research is over, I have about a week in the beginning of August to do whatever I want before heading up to Vietnam. I know for sure that I'll want to visit Komodo for a day or two, and my flight to Vietnam leaves from Denpasar, but I'm having trouble deciding what else to ...

Indonesia in March

Posted by ashleymish on 18/12/2016 at 20:58

Hi All! We are planning our 'flashpacking honeymoon' - 3 weeks in Indonesia starting early March, I have a semi-rough outline right now, we fly into Denpasar -> Bali (seminyak, ubud, sideman), maybe Gili islands (deciding which one(s)) and then still deciding from there. We aren't planning on heading towards Jakarta right now. What is the best way to get between these cities? Within Bali how is the transportation? Would a taxi take us or would I be looking at buying bus tickets? I'm re ...

Car & Driver in Flores?

Posted by Danila on 30/12/2016 at 23:35

Greetings! Looking at https://www.travelfish.org/trip_planner/18-days-flores on here, renting a car and driver in Maumere and taking several days to drive to Labuan Bajo is strongly recommended. There's an approx cost of around 600,000 to 700,000 rupiah per day quoted. Sounds good to me - so here's my questions: if it's over several days, and we book accommodation for ourselves, what about the driver? Do we book a room for him too, or what? How and where do we find a reputable driver?! And ...

12 weeks in Indonesia - focus or go broad?

Posted by flijten on 19/12/2016 at 06:36

I'll be in Indonesia this summer for about twelve weeks. Probably june, july and august. As always with prolonging a stay somewhere, it doesn't get easier but harder to choose an itenerary. One of the first things I need to solve is wether to really focus on a few islands or go for a broader sweep of a lot more. I will be a first time Indonesia visitor (though I've seen most of the rest of SE Asia) So I will do Java, Sumatra and Bali, probably in a 3 - 2 - 1 week ratio (perhaps 2-2-1?) Which wil ...

NYE - where to? Gilis Air? Gili T? Anywhere else?

Posted by carolhaddad on 5/11/2016 at 14:13

Hey there! I'm travelling to Indonesia by the end of the year with my sister and a friend - late 20s, early 30s. Backpacker style - like meeting people, like getting to know local culture, authentic experiences, avoid fancy resorts, etc We are having a hard time deciding where specifically to spend the NYE. We would like to be at a party place - NYE afterall - but not too posh and not too wildly-college-people (I've been there, believe me, but it's over). We were considering Gili Air, but som ...
