    • Speifics on Bromo

      Surabaya May 18, 2015 at 4:15 AM

      I've done my research on getting to Bromo or Cemoro Lawang from Surubaya now I'm looking for specifics for getting around the area. I'll be doing this independent of the tours and walking/hiking as much of it as I can so I'm trying to gather as much info on it as I can.

      I will try to get a room in Lava View or somewhere nearby, from there I would like to know how far it is to the viewpoint which from what I have read is on or near Mt. Pananjakan. The only review or blog post I've read which mentions the time says it's somewhere from 20-40 mins walk up there, not sure how accurate that is or if that's even from Cemoro Lawang area or some other point.

      From the viewpoint, how far is it back down to the entrance or the place where you pay the fee and then to the actual volcano itself?

      Any other vantage points or tips on getting around sand sea and the temple would also be appreciated.


      EDIT: I just read another post stating that the route the 4x4's take to the viewing area is different from the walking path, don't know if this is true or if there are clear markings along the way when I get there.

      Bandung Experts...?

      by markeveleigh Online Now Dec 14, 2014 at 11:14 PM

      I'm about to head off on a magazine assignment to Bandung, Java, and I wondered if anyone could recommend any really exciting (and preferably unexpected) things to see or do...? Anything that is new or particularly iconic for Bandung (ie not something you can easily see elsewhere) would be perfect.
      Terima Kasih

      We are 2 ladies going to Bandung end of this month and need advise on the following :-
      1) Sightseeing - We heard horror stories about people visiting Kawah Putih and Tangkuban Perahu being overcharged / peddlers tagging along and forcing you to buy. Is it advisable to go? If yes, can we visit both sights on the same day & which is the best day (we will be in Bandung over the weekend)? What is the price?
      2) Where can we get trolley bags?
      3) We want to buy good quality goods like working clothes, bags, shoes. Where should we shop?
      Thank you for in advance for your advice.

      Hi to all,

      I'm going to Bandung very soon. So I have a few question to whoever know the information. Thanks a lot for your time :D. So, this is my question.
      1. How much the fare of taxi if I take it from airport Bandung to downtown? If I need to negotiate, how much should I start to bargain ( I don't want to get them mad with ridiculous negotiate)
      2. Is better to rent a car or just used the public transportation? Again, how much should I start bargain ? I read from the previous post and there's seem to negotiate to everything including the price of hotel.

      Thank you :D
