We are considering a move from Australia to Surabaya and instead of shipping everything, I was wondering if buying once we get there would be a better option? can anyone give me an idea of price ranges for household items,,,if you can just give me a couple of things like fridge, washing machine, beds etc, then it would give me an idea what is the best option. Also, can electronics from Australia work in East java just with a travel adapter, or do we need to buy new electronics and electrical stuff once we get there? Thanks
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.
