Recommendation of Bali driver

Posted by childly1979 on 10/6/2011 at 13:52

Before my arrival to Bali, I have searched on the Internet looking out for a driver and found Dodi. I wrote to Dodi for asking the price and booking details and he replied me asap with his number. Hence, I texted him a message but never thought that he rang me up to talk to me about the date. Dodi rang me again one day before my arrival. How much would those phone calls cost to him? I can tell that Dodi is an honest man that can be trusted with. He arrived at my hotel to pick me up on time and h ...

Travel sites on Indonesia?

Posted by Lother on 7/5/2008 at 18:48

Anyone know of any good travel sites on Indonesia? There's obviously bits of travel info all over the Web, but as I'm heading to Sumatra (and Aceh in particular) next month I was wondering if there are any more comprehensive sites on the country, especially containing accommodation tips/reviews and maps etc. such as there are on Travelfish. ...

How to spend 3 months in SE asia?

Posted by lilyrose on 27/5/2011 at 04:47

Hello, Me and a mate (we're 23) are planning travelling round SE asia from September... we have a flight booked to go straight to Laos and then 3 months later out from Bali to Perth. The first month we will spend travelling round Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. We spent a month in Thailand last summer so kind of know what to expect here. We're stuck with what to do after... The general plan was to fly from Cambodia to Malaysia, visit a few of the islands there then fly out of either KL or Singapore ...

Bali transportation

Posted by heddenswest on 22/5/2011 at 11:49

Hello. I am looking for a cheap way to get from the airport in Bali to Ubud. I understand a taxi is about $20. Has anyone taken a bemo from the airport to the Batubulan station in Denpasar and then a bemo onward to Ubud? I found info. on a bemo to Ubud, but not from the airport to Batubulan station. Is it worth the extra time and potential hassle to save a bit of cash? Thanks!! ...

Recommendations for Mt. Bromo tour

Posted by travelinchen on 19/5/2011 at 02:23

Hey guys, I'm so excited! End of July we'll fly to indonesia and it will be awesome! (I hope) I'm still planning things out for the trip (aka as procrastinating), so I was wondering whether anyone can recommend a tour operator that does tours to Mt Bromo (relatively flexible still from where, but I'm thinking Malang might be good)? I know there're a lot of offers on the internet, but I'd really like to go by recommendations for such a one-in-a-lifetime experience. Hope to hear from you ...

We'll be coming in August, during the high season, and are wondering if we really need to make reservations. We won't be staying in Kuta or the other really popular beach spots. We plan on making a reservation for 1-2 nights in Ubud just for when we arrive. If we just want a simple, clean room, are we safe just walking around and looking at places or do we risk not getting a room in August? Thanks! ...

Hi guys, My soon-to-be wife and I will be spending our honeymoon in Indonesia. We plan to start of in Lombok, enjoy a couple of days of rest there and then start going east and have an adventure.

We have a month... also: does anyone know a good not-too-expensive operator for the Rinjani expedition? Thanks ...

Flights to KL/Sing to Lombok

Posted by starfish on 17/5/2011 at 02:02

Hey there! I have a rough plan of my summer trip. I was planning of flying from KL to Bali, moving to the Gilis before heading back to Bali for a flight to Singapore. As we only have a short period of time, I was wondering if it would make more sense to fly on leg of the trip from Lombok rather than both flights from Singapore. However, I am finding it really hard to actually find any flights. I have tried Singapore Airlines and Silk Air but the flight codes are not coming up. Could anyone reco ...

Bali few days w/o hassle?

Posted by boleslav on 10/3/2011 at 11:05

After reading many post on Bali, I have to admit to be a bit afraid of visiting the place. Or I should say intimidated, crowds, touts, almost mandatory guides for everything... yet I would like to believe that there is still a hope for us to spend few wonderful days there. Where would you suggest to go if we would like to get a feel for the culture and nature without worrying too much ..where can we soak it up independently? thank you. ...

So, which Gili island (or beach) to prefer?

Posted by travelinchen on 7/5/2011 at 17:00

Hey guys, my partner and I are planning to spend a week on one of the Gili islands, but we're not sure which one yet. Here's what we need to take into consideration: 1. Money -- we're on a somewhat tight budget of 50 USD a day for the two of us. (clean room with private both, but cold shower is fine) 2. Seclution and Peace -- we want to relax, NO partying and preferrably backpacker people rather than families or spring break type people 3. Snorkeling -- where's the best offshore snorkeling? Whic ...

Gili Islands, Perenhian Islands, Yucatan or Golf of Thailand

Posted by travelinchen on 6/5/2011 at 16:13

Hey travelers, sorry, obviously not all of these places are even in SEA, but I didn't really know where to post it and I hope some travelers know more than one of the places. Since my partner is having a very difficult time right now, we're looking to go to somewhere for relaxation and peace in June. Beach is a must, ideally white with perfectly clear water, so we can snorkel a bit. Not touristy and if anything rather backpacker. We're also on a budget (once we're there) so it should be very a ...

Hey guys, I will be spending 4 weeks in Indonesia in June. I know it's not a lot of time for the hundreds of awesome places in Indonesia, but I was just wondering where would you go with that time?
