Indonesia Dec. 7-Jan 14th

Posted by kendallplaysxo on 19/9/2012 at 23:15

Hello, We will be traveling from Alaska together, and we are both mid twenties, looking for adventure for these 5 weeks. We want to fly into Bali and travel Lombok, Flores, maybe Timor, Java, then fly out of Thailand. Is this a really stupid time to go because it is rainy season? I keep hearing mixed reviews. We are looking to see animals, lay on the beach, dive, see cultural things, hike, and deep sea fish. We are up for anything, and just want to meet people and enjoy ourselves on a budget sa ...

last 3 days in Indonesia - what to do

Posted by feiticeira on 3/10/2012 at 14:31

Hi, I have about 5 days in total in Indonesia, the first two will be in Ubud , Bali (flying into DPS from Cambodia). I considered going to Kuta/Seminyak/Bukit Peninsula but opted to go for Ubud instead. I know the last 3 days aren't enough time to do a whole lot - flights are booked solid for seeing the orangutans in Kalimantan and I would not have enough time there to get back to Bali to catch my flight. I considered doing the Gili Islands but will also be doing a fair bit of beach time in Th ...

Day trip from Kuta

Posted by antoniamitchell on 20/9/2012 at 01:10

Hi. My parents (in their early 70s) have a 24 hour layover in Bali in December. They've been booked into a hotel on the beach in South Kuta, but it would be a shame if all they saw of Bali was package tourists. Can anyone suggest a day trip or half-day trip that would show them another side? They normally use taxis to get around when traveling, and because of their ages aren't up for anything too active, like climbing a volcano, and aren't looking for a party vibe. They've got pretty broad int ...

Bali - 5 day getaway from Singapore?

Posted by leland on 28/9/2012 at 01:50

I'll be in Singapore for work in mid-October and I'd like to take 5-6 days for a break. But that said, I have no idea where to go... I'm guessing Bali is close and kinda easy. Open to alternatives in Indonesia or elsewhere. I think Thailand weather is crappy at that time. I'll be traveling solo, mid-30s guy. I'd like some good beach time, the chance to do a couple of scuba dives, some good food and decent nightlife. Sites and hikes ok, but not necessary. Budget is above backpacker, but not 5*. ...

Safe travel in the Wake of Anti-American sentiment?

Posted by mgann85 on 19/9/2012 at 11:49

Hello Guys, love this website. This is my first post. I leave for a 6 month trip through Indo, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam in 10 days. Leaving from San Francisco, First stop Bali. I have read all the State Department travel advisories about steering clear of large groups of people, protests, ect and all the other common sense safety tips. But I was curious about if anybody over there has any comments/advice that may be helpful in the wake of all the anti-Amierican protests across ...

transportation Jogja-Lombok

Posted by laceyinak on 9/9/2012 at 13:23

We're headed to Indo for 2.5 weeks in Dec. and January. Tickets as far as Singapore have been purchased. The current plan is 2 nights in Singapore, then head to Jogja for 3 or 4 nights. From there, we'd like to get out to Gili Meno/Lombok area for a week, then work our way through Bali (perhaps in the interior- like Sideman?) before flying out of DPS to Singapore and then back to the states. Considering our shorter timeframe, how what's the best method of transport within Indo? It looks like we ...

Where to Stay in Bali

Posted by waysofwanderers on 29/8/2012 at 07:44

Hello! I'm going to Indonesia in October for 2 weeks. From the little research I've done, I get the impression that it would be best for me to focus on Bali since it will be my first time in Indonesia. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where to stay in Bali? I'm hoping to be somewhere a little quieter, preferably close to a beach, and with good access to the rest of the island. Aside from Bali, I was also hoping to make it to either Rinca or the Komodo Islands - what is the ...

Snorkelling Menjangan Island and Pemuteran

Posted by tezza on 27/8/2012 at 06:19

I've never been real impressed with snorkelling in Bali. The best I've done has been in the small bays of western Nusa Penida and I found coral and fish here way below world's best. But people kept telling me I haven't seen Bali's best because I haven't been to Menjangan Island - so this latest trip I made a point of making the long trip (for Bali) to the north-west corner to check it out. And yep, it was pretty good, probably the best I've seen in SE Asia**. Maybe some of the stuff in the Mar ...

manado in August

Posted by gingo3 on 19/6/2012 at 05:08

Hi! I'm wondering about the Manado area (beaches, islands) in the middle of August. Is room availability really a problem then because of "the rich kids on summer holiday" as stated in another forum? We don't mind the upgrade to flashpacker and we are travelling with a nine-year-old, so it can even be a "nice" place. But we are budget backpackers at heart so we don't shy away from a little "rustic" either. We will fly to Jakarta so we are still open to all possib ...
