House Rentals - Kuta

Posted by thompyy on 1/3/2012 at 20:00

Hey! Me and a couple friends (5 of us in total) are headed to Bali in May for a month. We figured it might be more beneficial to just rent a house or flat for the month and use that as our base camp. Does anyone know any good websites or connections that might help steer me in the right direction? I have been looking a lot online and came across one website, airbnb, which seems to be really good. Just looking for a couple more options since we are on a budget haha. Thanks for your help! ...

Pelni schedules

Posted by Popnorm on 12/2/2012 at 16:15

We have travelled on Pelni before but just a single Kumai to Surabaya trip; this time we are thinking about Island Hopping by using Pelni. Has anyone tried this? Is it possible? If so how on earth did you plan the trip? I have tried using the official site - - but it is not very helpful. Is there a better way or is that wishful thinking? If it happens it will be in May. Starting point could be Sumatera or Kalimantan; and we are looking at going hopefully via Sulawesi, Ambon, Ti ...

Hey, is it easy enough to change Indonesian Rupiah into Thai Baht in Thailand? Most of the kiosks and banks in Bali seem to change only other currencies into Rupiah but not the other way around. Don't know whether to spend it all before leaving or not. ...

Bali Suggestions Please

Posted by Wanderluster on 25/1/2012 at 20:14

I am going to be travelling to Bali from May 18th - May 30th and would really like suggestions on where to go and what to see. I am travelling with 4 other people and we have a loose idea of what we want to see/do. So far we plan on spending 2 nights in Kuta (we know its unauthentic, overrun by drunken aussies etc), but it is near the airport and we will all be tired after our flight, so we will check it out. From Kuta we most definitely plan on spending a couple of days in Ubud. From there ...

$1000, 15 days, Will it be feasible in Indonesia

Posted by helixusion on 5/1/2012 at 23:25

Hi All, Have already bought a ticket to Bangkok for August. Now, my dilemma is that most of the destinations that I wanted to visit, namely, Koh Kradan and Koh Lipe will be closed during that time. But my problem is the airfare, Indonesia will cost me another $500 or more for airfare. Have to book several other tickets...Bangkok to Surabaya, Surabaya to Bali/Mataram and then Bali to KL and back home to India. Indonesia, was always on my list. I do not want to visit a whole lot of places with ...

where to stay in Bali

Posted by arenal on 26/12/2011 at 15:46

I'm planning to spend 10 days in Bali end of February- beginning of March 2012 and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out where to base myself. I thought Sanur, since there's the beach, and then hire a scooter to go around the island. I'm not into the party scene at all... Would that be a good idea? Any suggestions? Maybe there's a more laid back, nice beach town that I don't know of? Or may be it would be better to spend a couple of days in Sanur, then some time in Amed, some time in Ubud, ...

Yogya-Bromo-Bali -- travel advice?

Posted by travelinchen on 1/8/2011 at 13:28

We are in Jogyakarta right now, and want to get to Bali via Bromo. Does anyone have any advice on what the easiest, most comfortable way to do this is? We could get a 3 day 2 night trip by mini bus from Yogya to Bali with stops at Bromo and Ijen, but we're slightly concerned about safety, especially with the roads around Ijen. Also, the lack of a toilet makes the mini bus option a bit more uncomfortable than taking a train. Another option seems to involve getting to Probolinggo and doinh Bromo ...

Yet another itinerary for 3 weeks

Ok, so I just migrated from the Vietnam forum because after much consideration I decided that I really wanted to spend more time in a beach and snorkelling/diving this year. So here is what me and my boyfriend want: peace and quiet, good beaches but not for surf, nature, culture, bicycle trips, cheap spa treatments, relax! I have to tell you that I work in a hotel chain so I have special rates in these places: Jakarta, Yogyakarta , Surabaya, Bukit peninsula, Seminyak and Senggigi in Lombok ...
