Since I will be travelling alone I am wondering whether they also have single rooms and if not whether I will have to pay the double price... Cheers guys! Daniel ...

Help booking train from Jakarta to Yogyakarta online

Posted by Shoshana on 14/6/2014 at 07:33

Hi all I'm trying to book a train from Jakarta to Yogy online - I land in Jakarta very late on the 28th June, and want to travel on on the 30th June and I'm wary that I may not be able to get a ticket in person because it's Ramadan and peak travel season.

I am usin ...

Snorkelling in Sumbawa

Posted by somtam2000 on 9/6/2016 at 21:22

On my recent trip through Sumbawa I didn't have the time to do any diving, but I did manage to fit in some snorkelling research and here is a quick wrap. In West Sumbawa I snorkelled at Jelenga (off the back of the reef - you need to hire a small boat or be a reasonably strong swimmer), Moyo Island, Paserang Island, Gili Bedil and Satonda Island.
