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?
I will be in Indonesia during the first half of August. I have this itinerary in mind:
13 - 14 Aug: visit Jakarta and Jogjakarta, reach Bali in the evening or on 15th morning.
15 - 16 Aug: Bali (is this enough? I am not interested in the beaches except for a visit)
17 - 19 Thailand (mostly Bangkok, Kanchanabura etc)
20 - 21 Cambodia, Angkor Wat.
I am from India, with a German passport.
I want to visit the temples and museums. Not much into night clubs etc. The trouble is, if I land in Jakarta, I ...
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?
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. Climbing Rinjani is definately on our list, but we were hoping you guys could give us some tips on great things to do on our trip! We would like to stay away of the tourist mobs a little bit. We have a month... also: does anyone know a good not-too-expensive operator for the Rinjani expedition?
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 ...
Hi, just wondering if anyone has been to Bromo and if there are any treks organized up the mountain or is it only just the coach transport up and down for the sunrise? If anyone has done it before, how difficult is it?
Any recommendations on backpackers accomodation? ...
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. ...
Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could suggest few places that might help us on our planning for our extended vacation to Indonesia.
We'll have 6 months or so, flying into BKK in December. We are a family from Mexico with a 12 year old girl, a surfing Dad and a Mom who loves art and religions.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! ...
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?
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 ...
Hi, I'm heading to Kuta, Bali end of this month with a couple of friends for a short getaway. We hired a driver for Day 1 and the itinerary for the tour is :

5.Gunung kawi temple
7.Volcano and lake batur
8.Toya bungkah natural hotspring
9 tegalalang rice terrace
10.Central of ubud:
However, on Day 2 we haven't decide where to go as we have no idea where in Bali is nice. Basically we are lo ...
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? I was thinking of spending about 1 week in Bali, 4-5 days in the Gilis, and take 2-3 days to climb up Mt Bromo. But that aside I'm all ears for your suggestions!

I spent some time in this area last month.
Labuanbajo is surprisingly small for the main entry point, port, fishing town and tourist destination in West Flores. It stretches a few km along a bay and up the hillside. The main street is a disgrace - hot, dusty, rubbish and broken bits of pavement and road everywhere - often crammed with traffic - which is noisy - the locals like the open muffler set up on their vehicles (and boats). There seems to be more transport guys hassling for a ride than K ...
We have 22 adults and 7 kids planning to go Bali during June for 4 days 3 nights. We thought of staying at Blue Point Bay Resort around Uluwatu. Guess we have such a big group that the resort is unable to provide with the airport transfer.
1) We are finding alternative for the accomodation. Any resorts or villa which can cater such a big group and it is not too commercialise?
2)Does anyone knows any company which provide coach services that cater for such a big group?
3) Any good and relia ...
I'm in the early stages of planning a trip over Christmas/NYE this year, for about 2 weeks. I really just want a place to unwind and let my hair down a bit--lay on a beautiful beache/exploring/snorkeling during the day and enough of a 'scene' at night to keep me from being lonely without being outrageous or requiring anything other than flip-flops. I don't need fancy accommodation, but would prefer some sort of bungalow versus a junky hotel room. BTW, I'm 28 y/o female, likely trav ...
My partner and I are planning a trip to SEA and we really wanted to stay for around 9 months (Just enough time for Oz to come into Spring) but after researching travel costs and day to day living it isn’t even remotely achievable on our tiny budget (£3000 each – who were we kidding) soooooooo we are going to take a course called TEFL so we can teach in SEA. I was wondering if anybody knows of any useful websites/links that will help us get jobs, Does anybody know roughly how mu ...
Me an my girlfriend are going to Bali next week and we are looking for somewhere good to get some surf lessons and stay somewhere that is not too crowded, as I hear Kuta is. Can anyone recommend a good location to base ourselves for a few days and any good surf schools?
We are also thinking about doing some trekking in Rinjani national park on Lombok. Can anyone recommend any good trekking companies? ...
