      Is it possible to walk cross country from Air Panas hot springs to Brahma Vihara Arama buddhist monastery, and vice versa? Or are there any deep river beds or canyons inbetween that would prohibit this? Or fences?

    • Two weeks in Bali 11 - 25 July, single traveller.

      Bali Yesterday

      Hello all - I hope you can help me.

      I've recently retired (with my wife still working) and she's given me the OK to head off to Bali and take advantage of a bargain airfare (only just booked today) and to escape the chill of the Melbourne winter (were both heading the Thailand and UK in September so she's not missing out).

      I would love it if someone could give some ideas on where to go, how to get there and where stay over the two week period. I'm quite happy to stay in a quite few places, or use just a couple as a base to explore.

      We've been to Bali a couple of times for "vegging out" type holidays and stayed in Tanjung Benoa & Sanur - so you'll gather that we're not really into the party / bar scene of Kuta and similar places.

      I'm treating this as a bit of an adventure to do things fairly simply and relatively cheaply (i.e. I'm not bothered about 4 star hotels) and am quite happy to try out homestays / Airbnb type accommodation. The only real criteria being quiet, clean & comfortable with food provided or nearby.

      I arrive fairly late on Saturday evening so though I might spend a couple of nights in Sanure as it is fairly close to the airport and I know the area.

      Thanks for any help - although I accept it is on short notice.

    • 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.

      Hi Im planning to take a chartered vehicle directly from Surabaya International airport to Cemoro Lawang, in order to cut on travelling time by waiting, hopping on multiple buses or taxis from various locations. I already have a reserved accomodation in Cemoro Lawang.

      My question is
      1. what is the recommended taxi (chartered vehicle) company i can get from the airport?
      2. Is the company operating within the airport (e.g. there's a counter i can go to?)
      3. do you know approximately the price from Surabaya International airport to Cemoro Lawang?

      I just want to make sure im engaging the right company and paying the right price for the service.

      Bromo becomes more expensive

      Tengger Caldera Mar 1, 2014 at 10:06 PM

      Starting May 2014 visiting Bromo will become much more expensive, according to what we read in the newspaper "Jawa Pos".
      The government has decided to raise the entrance fee for the National Park (not including jeep tour and horse trip) by several hundred percent, and to set a different tariff for weekdays and for holidays.
      For foreign tourists the fee was Rp 57,000 per person; this will become Rp 267,000 on weekdays and Rp 400,500 during weekends and holidays.
      Local tourists (including foreigners holding a residence permit) used to pay Rp 10,000. This will become Rp 37,500 on weekdays and Rp 52,500 during weekends and holidays.
      The tariffs include a Rp 2,500 insurance fee.

      Accomodation in Labuan Bajo and diving in Komodo Islands?

      Labuan Feb 3, 2014 at 8:50 AM

      I'm traveling with a gf who dives and we are planning to stay one night in Labuan Bajo then go over to the Komodo Islands for diving & snorkeling. I don't dive though so was wondering if there's somewhere we can go for both?

      - Any preferred recommendations for hotel in Labuan Bajo that has wifi? Don't need anything fancy really but please share if you stayed at somewhere you actually liked.

      - heard a bit about Seraya vs. Kanawa, are these the best options to stay overnight or has anyone stayed at a nicer place? I'm more picky about my beaches ie. soft white sandy beach

      - any divers out there who can recommend a dive center with 1-2days package with a tour to Rinca (to see Komodos) and overnight at one of the islands, with trusty instructors?

      Hope to hear back some tips from you, Thank you!
