Pelni Schedule for May

Posted by eva000 on 13/4/2013 at 03:38

Hi everyone, I can't seem to make any sense of the Pelni website. I am looking for the schedule of the KM Tidar, which I would like to take from Ambon to Banda, and maybe to the Keis and back, too. I compared the April schedules already, but I am not sure what that says about May? All I can seem to find is this PDF, but I'm afraid I don't understand it: Does anybody know more? Also, did anyone take the Tidar yet, what were your ex ...

I'm not sure if this has been done before in Bali...

Posted by johnno on 18/3/2013 at 03:07 a first timer in Bali, but I want to explore ALL (i.e. as much as possible) of Bali in 9 days. Yes, it's a short time. But some of us can't take too much time off. Yes I could focus on just one part of the island but then I'd miss out the rest. I don't care how rushed it's going to get. I'm a landscape person. I just want some input as to the best way of dividing Bali for exploration purposes. Roughly I have this in my mind - Kuta region for the first 2 days. Ubud for the next 2. Then hiri ...

How to get from Jakarta to Bali without flying?

Posted by gingersmith869 on 14/9/2011 at 12:20

Hi guys! I was wondering if anybody could help me get from Jakarta to Bali? I have 12 days and now realise this isn't very long at all, and that ferries can be quite unpredictable and not travel every day. Is there a website or any other resource someone could recommend? I can't find answers on here in relation to travelling between the two. I have no idea how much it would cost via ferry either? We'd rather not fly, although if there is little difference in the cost, it would be something we ...

Being a student in Indonesia and travel afterwards

Posted by aprilshine on 27/3/2013 at 21:12

Hello, Apologies if this has been asked already, but with multiple internet searches I have not been able to find a similar situation to answer my question and put my mind at ease... OK, so I will be a student for 6 weeks in Indonesia (Java) coming up in a few months (I have a letter from the sponsor in Indonesia and all that). I understand that I will likely be applying for a 60-day Social-Cultural visa, as this seems to be the type of visa students get. However, my question is this: for the ...

Two Weeks in Indonesia - itinerary help

Posted by RJB2288 on 13/2/2013 at 17:34

My sister and I have 2 weeks to travel through Indonesia in May and need help with picking out the best itinerary for that amount of time (its way too short - but my work won't let me stay away). From my research, Sulawesi, the more remote parts of Bali, Lombock, and Sumatra sound like the most interesting places to go - but I know we can't cover that much ground in 2 weeks. So does anyone have any advice on how to get the most out of our time there with some sample itineraries? We want a mix o ...

Surf Camp / Surf holiday -- for beginners

Hi experienced Indo travellers I will be in Indo for the first time for a minimum of 4 weeks+ in late June/early July 2013 and would like to kick off my Bali stay with a 5 or 7-days long "surf camp".

I am a beginner, so not really looking to surf mental Padang reef breaks or anything etc. Besides the waves, looking for a good vibe and not sure if I should sign up to a full surf ...

Indonesia weather Feb/March - Worth going?

Posted by StephJayne165 on 22/2/2013 at 22:54

Hi Guys, Need a bit of advice about the weather situ in Bali/Lombok/Gili Islands at end of Feb/beginning of March. I've been doing a bit of research and understand that this is rainy season over there. I'm hoping somebody can tell me if it really is a complete washout over there, of weather it's just a few hours of passing rain every day, still with some sunshine to enjoy the beaches? I've only got a couple of weeks left, so obviously want to make the most of it, is Indonesia still worth check ...
