I plan on flying into Jakarta and then going up through Sumatra and eventually crossing to KL to then head up towards Bangkok. What are the stand out sights and features of Sumatra? I'm not that into trekking so I'd be interested in mainly relgious sites, cities, possible beaches (?) etc. Will roughly $30 a day be enough and are hostels available? Also is there a ferry available to Malaysia? Any information would be great. Cheers, Nathaniel ...

Lake Toba / Berastagi / Bukit Lawang

Posted by Sawf35 on 27/3/2012 at 18:23

Hi all, A mate and I are arriving in Medan at about 17:00 on June 21st and flying out again at 8:00 on July 1st, giving us 9 full days. We will obviously have to stay in Medan the night before we leave, due to the early flight, but we were wondering whether it is too ambitious to make it to all of Lake Toba, Berastagi and Bukit Lawang in that time? If we have to skip one of those places, I'm leaning towards missing out on Berastagi based on the research I've done, but I'm interested in hearin ...

Kelimutu vs. Rinjani

Posted by feiticeira on 13/10/2012 at 16:40

Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone out here has done both Kelimutu and climbed Mt. Rinjani and can recommend one over the other as a more must-see/must-do option and what your experiences were like (including the "down-time" or travel time in order to get to these places where most tours take you to experience the local culture a little bit more. I have to decide what to do with my last 3 remaining days in Indonesia (coming from Denpasar) and want to make it the most worthwhile and curr ...

Hi everyone, I'll be spending a few weeks in Bali in January and I really want to find a guesthouse somewhere (perhaps around Ubud?) with great views of rice terraces. I don't really care where in the country it is; I just want to wake up and sit outside on a veranda and look at rice terraces. I'd like to not spend more than $50/night. Any suggestions?

My flight in to Jakarta from HCMC tomorrow night(procrastination?..) is due to land at 23:25, and while I'm in the process of confirming accommodation for the night, i'm hoping to get out of Jakarta as quickly as possible (with a final destination of pangandaran).

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 ...
