Comparison of the weather in Cambodia and Indonesia during a rainy season?

Posted by cloud on 13/9/2013 at 08:13

I am considering traveling Java and Bali in the coming January, i.e., rainy season and worried about the weather. I have experience of traveling Cambodia and Vietnam in September and October, i.e., rainy season. It rained nearly every day and was very heavy but the raining was generally only during an hour or so. Before and after the rain, strangely the sky was usually clear and sunny and the rainy season was not a big difficulty to me. However, I wonder how bad the weather is during a rainy s ...

One-way renting of a car in Indonesia?

Posted by cloud on 12/9/2013 at 11:05

I considered one-way renting of a car, ie, picking one at Jakarta and returning it to Denpasar. I checked car rent websites but they did not show available cars but showed a message, "Cars meeting your requirements are not available." I tried the search several times with different dates but the results were the same. Is one-way car renting is not available in Indonesia? ...

Indonesia to Australia by boat

Posted by afarewell2barms on 20/8/2013 at 02:56

Yes I know it's a common question - I've read all I can find. This post is not so much asking whether or not it's possible (I know it is with a bit of luck) I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any boats leaving anytime soon - obviously any other general constructive suggestions are welcome. Me and my GF are doing the old UK to Oz overland trip. We're currently in Thailand and are heading South towards Indonesia with the idea that that's the best place to hitch a ride on private vessel. I'm we ...

Perama cruise Flores - Komodo NP - Lombok

Posted by tezza on 18/6/2009 at 15:47

The Lombok-Flores trip is one I've wanted to do for several years - as it turned out, time constraints meant I did the reverse 2 day/2night trip instead of the 3 or 4 day west-east cruises offered by a number of operators. Overall, I thought Perama's operation was exceptionally good, my one qualification is that it was a little bit expensive by Indonesian standards (but still very good value in western terms) at approx $US125 deck class all meals, snorkelling gear and NP entry included in May 0 ...

As some know we recently finished up a two month trip in Sulawesi in northern Indonesia -- as things turned out, getting out of there was a little bit more complicated than expected -- it all started when I met a plane-cow-crash survivor in the guesthouse foyer You can read all about it here + we'll have the first of our Sulawesi coverage (primarily the Togean Islands) online in the next week. Cheers! ...

Touts on Bali - How does it compare to other SEA destinations?

Posted by exacto on 23/7/2013 at 11:08

We're thinking of visiting Bali next year and wanted to know from recent visitors how bad the touts are in different places on the island. I haven't been since 1999, but remember the touts being particularly thick and persistent at Kuta Beach and to a lesser extent along the main roads in Ubud. How is it now? Are they still a pain? How do they compare to other places in southeast Asia? Thanks and regards. ...
