Cheers! ...

java to bali at speed!

Posted by Animal_lover on 17/7/2013 at 15:35

Hi Apologies if similar Q's have been asked before. I'm flying into Yogyakarta spending 3 days there before trying to get to Pemuteran via mt Bromo. Basically i'd really like to understand if it is possible to do the following: day 1 leave yogya, arrive near Bromo day 2 Bromo early morning, get to port, ferry to Bali, somehow get to Pemuteran. I don't have much experience of 'tours' and have never been to Indo so confirmation that 'everyone does this, just go to XYZ tour operator' or 'he ...

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. ...

Hi, I will be travelling in Indonesia in August. Land in Jakarta, spend couple of days there then I would like to see some islands (maybe flores), find nice white sand beaches, go to volcano, etc. Besides indonesia I would like to go to Borneo (Malaysia) and go hiking to Mount Kinabalu - it looks fantastic and it is "an easy" walk there. After that (if enough time), cross to Palawan (Philippines) -- this is optional. Anyone wants to join part of the trip? I will be travelling alone. Th ...

Hey I'll be getting to Bali at the very end of July and I only have 6 days! I arrive super late at night so I'm staying in Kuta my first night (The first hotel I could find that would pick me up at 3AM) then I plan to go to Ubud for 3 nights. But I can't decide where to go after that! I'm definitely not looking for a party scene- just looking for somewhere chill and beautiful and would love to possibly be around some other cool, laid back solo travelers.

10 days Indonesia incl. diving?

Posted by wanderingirish on 2/7/2013 at 17:13

Hi all, I'm going out to Singapore with work for a week at the end of August and hoping to manage a trip to Indonesia at the end of it. I haven't booked flights yet but I am thinking approx. 10 days. I'm not a mad beach person, but would quite like to get a day or two's diving in while I am out - maybe in two different locations? I've heard there is some wreck diving, which I think would be really cool to try. Other than that. I am pretty flexible about what I do and where I go, and feeling a ...
