      Diving with Mola Mola on Bali

      Bali May 18, 2015 at 12:42 AM

      Hello.

      I read several articls about Mola Mola fish and it seems there are only 2 places in the whole world, where there are high chances to see this fantastic, super ususual and rare fish: Galapagos islands and indonesian island Bali. Galapagos are too expensive for my budget, but Bal seems much more resaonable.

      I wonder, has anyone saw Mola Mola fish somewhere nearby Bali? I understand that sea is not an aquarium, but how often Mola Mola can be met there? Maybe someone knows any triks of how to attract it? Like the trip with a sound of a rumpling plastic bottle underwater that attracts sharks.

      Big Luggage Problem from Bali to Gili

      Lombok May 31, 2015 at 9:40 AM

      Hi,

      Is there anyone can offer solution where to store luggage?

      We are leaving from ubud, then planning to stay at gili air for 2 days then lombok for another 3 days then go back to our next destination at bali in seminyak area.

      Problem here, we have two large luggages which i am not sure if its gonna be great idea to carry it with the jetty to gili air ( We still can't find hotel we love to stay here, most of we preferred already fully booked). Travel with it to lombok and back to bali again

      I am thinking of few options, leaving it at our ubud resort ( Still waiting for their confirmation if they are willing to do this to hold our luggages for 5 days ).

      So we would love to hear your experiences here, what would be solution that makes more sense :)

      And thank you very much in advance

    • 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.

    • Things to buy and where to get them

      Jakarta May 28, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      I'd like to get some crafts, I hear woodwork is a popular option, I have enough songket and batik items from Malaysia so I won't focus so much on that, although i will be getting some as well.

      I was thinking of getting some shadow puppets, wood boxes and carvings as gifts. Can someone give me an idea of what's available, common items and things to take home and buy as gifts, as well as where best to get them. I will be in Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. I'm still in the early stages of planning my itinerary so I haven't gotten around to the shopping part yet. I know there are plenty of malls in Indonesia, Jakarta especially but there don't seem to be all that many markets.

    • Getting Around Bali

      Bali May 5, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      Hi!

      Myself and a couple of friends are headed to Bali in two weeks. We would love to go to Mount Batur as well as the tegalalang rice plantations but we are staying in seminyak and have heard that it is quite far away. Does anyone have a driver to recommend and what are the rates usually?

      Same goes for Tanah Lot. We are planning to go there one evening and have been told it is better to hire a driver.

      Please advise! Thank you!

    • getting around canals and to floating markets

      by jubob66 Online Now Mar 3, 2011 at 1:50 AM

      I am wondering how easy it is to get a guide to take us in a boat around the canal system and to floating market. Would it be easy to arrange once in Banjarmasin or is it something that needs to be arranged before arrival. We are planning on being there for 2 days in July and would welcome any recommendations. Thank You.

      Going upstream from Banjarmasin

      by HaoleMan Online Now Oct 29, 2010 at 2:31 PM

      I have many questions, and would welcome contact with locals from the area. I am still doing my research, but it looks like I must go to Kalimantan! I am a diamond miner. I dig. I do not work for any company, only myself and the miners who chose to be partners with me. I am very good at what I do, but the diamond fields in Arkansas, USA, are used up.

      do the miners in Kalimantan still find good stones? Do they get good prices when selling? My buyers in USA pay from4-$20 a point [400-2,000 a carat] They want me to go to Kalimantan and dig the way we do in the USA. It is a very productive way to work.

      Are the mineral rights in the ground held by property owners or the Indonesian government? Will the local miners work with an American? I am not rich. I work very hard, and very smart. Is it difficult to get government work permits for an American?

      Are there many crocodiles in the rivers? Are there many poisonous snakes? Are the fish good to eat?

      Banjamarsin - have you been there?

      by sybille Online Now Sep 20, 2007 at 8:19 PM

      I would be interested in hearing from any member who has been to Banjamarsin. Did you use the town as a base for exploring further afield, did you go on day trips? Did you make your own arrangements or did you travel as part of an organised tour? Having read conflicting comments, I am trying to ge a feel for the place, as I would really like to spend some time in Kalimantan.
