      Hello!
      I'm planning to visit Bromo volcano and my plan is catch a train from Banyuwangi at 22.00 that arrives at Probolinggo or Pasuruan at about 3.30h in the morning. Do you know if there are buses or taxis at that time to go to Cemara Lawang or Wonokitri? I think it's good to see the sunrise, but I'm not sure if I can find transportation from the train station to the volcano at that time. Can anyone help me?

      Munduk to Menjangan Island

      Bali Jul 5, 2014 at 1:48 PM

      Hi all,

      Do you think a day trip from Munduk to Menjangan is doable in one day? I read snorkeling there is best in the early morning (9 am?), and that the boat trip from Labuhan Lalang takes some 40 min to add to the driving time from Munduk. But I honestly have no idea how long it'd take to get to Labuhan Lalang from Munduk. Our accommodation is already booked in Munduk and we cannot change it for, say, Permuteran or Lovina.

      Second, can you recommend any organised snorkeling trip in particular (that includes the boat to Menjangan ofc)? I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the idea of snorkeling unattended as I hear currents in Bali can be quite strong.

      Thank you very much!

    • the prices in Batam

      Riau Province Jul 9, 2014 at 10:43 AM

      Hi! I am from a European country. My friend now lives in Palembang (South Sumatra). We plan to live in Batam for a few month. My friend got information about prices in Batam. I was shocked. I think that my friend got wrong information. Could you tell me, is it true?
      He found a dorm for us. There is one room for us and a bath and a kitchen for a few rooms. The price is 2.000.000 rupiah for the room + 500.000 rupiah for security + electricity. The total price is around 3.000.000 rupiah for the room per month! The dorm is located in Plamo Garden, Block B (south of batam Centre Area). Could you tell me, is it normal price for Batam?
      We will visit almost every day Sekolah Tinggi Teknik Ibnu Sina which is located in Nagoya Area. We will use city transport (bus). He told that one ticket costs 10.000 rupiah. We have to use two buses to come from Plamo Garden to STT Ibnu Sina. One person will spend 40.000 rupiah per day. So, one person will pay 1.000.000 rupiah per month for transportation. Is it true that we have to use two buses? Is it true that the price of one ticket in the bus is 10.000 rupiah? Could you tell me the shortest and cheapest way?
      He said that he has to get Batam citizenship card (identity card). The price of the card is 1.000.000 rupiah. Why so expensive? I could get the card for free in my country.
      Thank you!

    • Which area is good to live as a foreigner?

      by wanderlust.je Online Now May 18, 2014 at 5:22 AM

      Hi there! I am expected to join Institute of Technology in Bandung (ITB) and will stay there for 2 years as a student. Last time I visit there for a short time, I stayed in Cisitu area- it was very close to the campus and enjoyable to live for a short time, but not for a long time. So.. I would like to know whether there is such an area that many foreigners live.- it might means that the area is safe, quite easy to live with english, and easy to find variety of foods. As I searched earlier, Setiabudi / Cihampelas area is both close to the campus and having shopping mall, but I'd like to ask to the people who live/lived there. It would be very helpful if you share your idea of the area and maybe the average cost per month! Thanks in advance!

I received a quote for 500,000rps for airport transfer & shopping for 1st day & 1 mil rps per day for trips to the volcanos. We were given a Toyota Avanza & Isuzu Elf. As I do not know much abt cars, is the Toyota Avanza able to seat 8 adults? Also is the cost reasonable? Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.

      I have just emailed Aldhy for his availability/cost. I note that you had recommended him highly.

      by cliopatra Online Now Mar 14, 2012 at 10:46 AM

      On 6 June 2012 we plan to leave by train from Bandung 7:00 am to Yogjakarta 13:55 am. (eksekutif, with airo).
      Can you tell us if there is a travelagency in Bandung who can arrange traintickets for us ?
      Do you know if it there is place to store our luggage (suitcases) in the train ?

      We are looking forward hearing from.
      Thank you very much in advance.
