Yogyakarta 2 1/2 day itinerary??

Posted by roosen on 16/5/2017 at 14:37

Hi, My wife and I arrive in Yogyakarta at 9:30 in the morning. We have that day and two more. We of course want to see the Kraton, Borobudur, and Prambanan. We like to take photos and see historic sites. We are also interested in hiking, cycling, rafting, etc. but don't really expect that to be a Yogyakarta thing. Any suggestions on how to spend the time? Off the top of my head I'd say Kraton on the arrival day, Borobudur the second day, and Prambanan the third day. But as the Kraton ...

Ubud for a digital nomad from mid May to mid June?

Posted by jameslon on 27/4/2017 at 01:37

Im taking a month to work on a personal project on my laptop so I suppose that qualifies me as a "digital nomad". Ill be flying from Australia mid May and by mid June I need to end up in Hong Kong. Ive already been to Chiang Mai as a backpacker. Bali (with Ubud in particular) seems to be the other hub for nomads. However Ive heard a lot of Aussies go on holiday around this time so will it be swamped with tourists? Id rather hang out with nomads as ill be working most of the day ...

Tarempa - Anambas Islands - Any Advice?

Posted by tpogrady on 7/4/2017 at 11:03

I am planning to spend a few days in Tarempa - located on Pulau Siantan in the Anambas Island chain. There is very little information about this destination online (which adds to the charm), but I was curious if anyone has recommendations of lodging, restaurants or activities. Should I book a hotel room in advance, or upon arrival? Does anyone have any idea how much rooms cost in late May/early June? This site has helped me understand the logistics of getting there via ferry: www.anambasferry.co ...

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 ...
