    • Transportation in Ternate Island

      Ternate Apr 30, 2015 at 12:31 AM

      I'm going to Ternate Island in the coming July.

      (1) Can we pick up ojek or a taxi at the airport in order to go to some downtown area ?
      (2) If we wanna use a taxi in a town, can we find one on the street ?
      (3) If we wanna rent a taxi for one day excurtion - say, 8 hours - how much will it be ? A rough idea is okay.

      Chao.

    • 4 bedroom villas in Sanur

      Hi there,

      We are a group of 7 adults and 5 kids (below 10 yrs) traveling to Bali in June. I am having a difficult time finding a 4 br villa for all of us. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions. We are looking to stay 5 nights and want a villa with a pool. Anything under USD 600/700 per night will be good with us...

      Thanks for your help!

    • Karma Jimbaran through The Bali Getaway

      Jimbaran Apr 13, 2015 at 6:41 PM

      We are looking at staying at Karma Jimbaran through a Bali Getaway offer. I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with either the Karma Jimbaran or The Bali Getaway.
      The price they have offered is incredibly cheap and from what I have found out this is because they are going to try and sell us timeshare and take us to a 2 hour (expecting half day) sales pitch. I'm fine with that and happy to give them a half day for the price.
      I just want to make sure that I'm not going to pay and then find out that it was a total scam and my money disappears.

      I would also love any feedback on the resort itself.

      Thanks so much,

      Cathy

      First days in Bali

      Bali Apr 19, 2015 at 4:27 AM

      Hej :)
      I'm arriving on Bali in the first days of May and would like to hear your opinion about how to start the first days.
      As I land in Denpasar in the late evening, I was thinking to take taxi directly to Tanah Lot, spend a night there, have a day of sight seeing and continue to Ubud. Would a day be enough? How should I travel to Ubud, by taxi or bus?
      Or would it be better to go directly to Ubud and take a daily tour from there to Tanah Lot?

      I'm planning to travel from Manado to Palu by bus. I read in a travel guide book that it takes about 10 hours from Manado to Gorontalo, and 17 hours from Gorontalo to Palu.
      I want to know how frequently the buses operate in each of these sections, and where we can get the bus tickets and where the bus terminal is in Manado.

    • Taxi or Bus trip from Makassar to Palu

      Makassar Apr 15, 2015 at 3:14 AM

      I'm thinking of a trip by taxi or bus from Makassar to Palu.
      I want to make a trip on the western coast. Since I wan'na avoid Lake Poso and its visinity, because I heard Lake Poso area is dangerous due to terrolists.

      If by taxi, what is good methods to pick up a reliable one ? How much is a normal cost ?
      How many hours does it take ? A rough figure is okay. Even if the cost is a bit higher, I wan'n choose a safer way.
      And I think the distance maybe 900Km. Do we need to make a stopover along the way ?

      If by bus, are there buses running through this rout - I mean along the western coast of the Slawesi Island ? Making a bus transfer is okay.
      Where is the bus terminai in Makassar ? And if you know, where is it in Palu ?

      Regards,

I'm traveling solo n will be in Bali for about 5 nights. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
