Hi TF peeps, I am thinking of taking a 2-3 week trip through Sumatra in mid June. Looking through TF & other guides, I'm a bit overwhelmed. Sumatra is so BIG. I am currently thinking of flying into Aceh, with onward travel to Pulau Weh for some diving. But thats flexible as well. I would like to include lake Toba and a shortish trek to see the orangutans, but would like to see them in their natural habitat and not at a feeding station. Recommended national parks? Bukitinggi sounds ...

Yogyakarta 2 1/2 day itinerary??

Posted by roosen on 16/5/2017 at 14:37

Hi, My wife and I arrive in Yogyakarta at 9:30 in the morning. We have that day and two more. We of course want to see the Kraton, Borobudur, and Prambanan. We like to take photos and see historic sites. We are also interested in hiking, cycling, rafting, etc. but don't really expect that to be a Yogyakarta thing. Any suggestions on how to spend the time? Off the top of my head I'd say Kraton on the arrival day, Borobudur the second day, and Prambanan the third day. But as the Kraton ...

Ubud for a digital nomad from mid May to mid June?

Im taking a month to work on a personal project on my laptop so I suppose that qualifies me as a "digital nomad". Ill be flying from Australia mid May and by mid June I need to end up in Hong Kong. Ive already been to Chiang Mai as a backpacker. Bali (with Ubud in particular) seems to be the other hub for nomads. However Ive heard a lot of Aussies go on holiday around this time so will it be swamped with tourists? Id rather hang out with nomads as ill be working most of the day ...
