i came from manila and decided to live and work in boracay to follow my dreams. yes ive been hired immediately and wow starting to live my dreams in the island, until last monday morning incident happened. Being robbed with unknown numbers of bad people ,inside my apartment while i was sleeping, is definitely not part of that dream. All my valuables were stolen as they break through my windows. these robbers were desperate as they work with the window's grills and robbed my things up to single nail cutter. they left me with none. im just thankful that while i was sleeping they did not harm me, being raped and killed, the thought still hunts me i cant get a good night sleep since that robbery happened. Now, WHERE ARE THE AUTHORITIES??? TO SERVE and PROTECT they said. I went immediately to the police station,narrated what happened,they came to my apartment AND NONE!. Just like my neighbors, these Policemen just look around and done nothing. NO ACTIONS taken, they could investigate and get the footprints around my apartment-the robbers left plenty and muddy footprints.
How can i continue living and working here in boracay, with all the thousands of tourist every month and being acclaimed as the number one beach destination when safety is in question?

I am looking for some advice regarding how best for me and my girlfriend to get around Java in July. We land in Jakarta and will be travelling through Java and ending up in Bali (just started looking at the route but thinking of a lot of places, for example the first part of the route we'll go through Bogor, Cipanas, Bandung, Garut, Kampung Naga and Panagdaran and we know we want to visit Yogyakarta). We have about 9 days to get to Bali so will not have time to stay over in each of the places..
The question is what's the best way to travel? We want to maintain flexibility as our route/timings won't be exactly planned out. Options I'm thinking of are 1) hire a car with sat nav but is it safe in terms of road quality and car jacking type issues, 2) hire a car with sat nav and driver, but this is a long trip so is this possible, how would it work for the driver's accommodation etc. and can it be booked in advance, 3) use taxis as and when we need to travel but I guess this would be an expensive option and are taxis easy to get hold of across Java, or 4) any better ideas?
Any advice much appreciated.
This summer I want to do a trip to Nepal.
What do you think is best? Three weeks in nepal or two in Nepal and then 1 week in Goa for some sun and relaxing?
How much time will I need there? I like mild (couple of days) trekking in jungle or scenic areas. I have no intentions of climbing mount everest etc. :P I like culture, and relaxing and beautiful scenery. I also love activities like kayaking, rafting and seing wildlife.
What places and activities do you recommend?
And how are the prices? I read it is a very cheap country, but is this also true for activities like gouided hikes, kayaking etc? I checked out some websites but most of them don't show any prices on the trips they offer. and on others the priced were very high.
I don't know so much about this country and any tips are very appreaciated :)

We are a retired couple and plan to visit Jakarta for 3 days as part of a 2 week stay in Java in July, 2013. I understand this is within the Ramada month. We will be flying in and out of Jakarta. Is staying at the Akmani Hotel in Tanah Abang going to be a problem in terms of touring, dining out and shopping during that time? We will be booking bus day tours and will also want to do some shopping for sports shoes. We also want to walk to restaurants. We will also be going by train to Bandung. Is there any advantage in terms of accessiblity and security, if we book at the Novotel in Mangga Dua or Alila Hotel?

Going to Asia soon, want to be respectful at the various religious sites: 1. In Tokyo, it looks like at sensoji there is no required dress codes, ie shoulders and legs covered for women? B. grand palace in bangkok, women and men need to adhere to a dress code and v. Angkor wat, it doesn't seem like shoulders and legs need to be covered? Is that correct? I am assuming it will be sweltering there (I am from a similar climate as cambodia, no need to mention how to dress, hydrate, a/c etcetera). Please let me know' thanks!
