      Volcanoe disruption

      Bali Aug 6, 2015 at 1:58 AM

      Hi hoping someone can give me a little advice and support. We are due to fly out to Hong Kong this Sat with Cathay Pacific and then on to Bali on the 11th Aug. Does anyone know if Dragonair flights are being affected by the volcano ash? I can see lots of info for Virgin and Jetstar from Australian travellers but not a lot for other airlines. Cathay Pacific have very generic info on their website. I really don't know what to do, beginning to worry about flying to HK and getting stuck there! Booked everything ourselves, although insurance does at least cover us for the ash.
      Hoping for a little friendly support to stop me panicking!
      Thanks Jeannette

    • 10 days in Bali (+ Lombok/Gilli) over Christmas / New Year

      Bali Aug 23, 2015 at 3:55 AM

      Hi all,

      I've spent quite a bit of time looking at suggested 10-day itineraries for Bali, but yet I still don't seem to have managed to find one that I feel works for me. I'm in Bali for 10 full days (11 nights), arriving on Christmas Eve and staying on until the 4th January. I will be arriving and departing from Denpasar

      I'm not a big beach-goer or into surfing, though having said that, I would still like to fit in a couple of days at a quiet, relaxing beach. I will be travelling alone, and am in my mid-twenties. I don't drink, so I'm not looking for parties/bars/wild nights. I'm interested in exploring the history and culture, with a bit of down-time thrown in. I'm interested in the local life, scenery, food and exploration - so spending days at a beach resort is not too appealing - though some relaxation time on an authentic local beach would be lovely. I would also like to try and fit in Lombok and a couple of nights on one of the Gili islands - though I get the feeling that this might be trying to cram in too much.

      At the moment, my rough itinerary is:


      25/12 Bali (Ubud)

      26/12 Bali (Ubud)

      27/12 Bali (Ubud)

      28/12 Bali (Ubud)

      29/12 Lombok (Senggigi?)

      30/12 Lombok (Senggigi?)

      31/12 Gilli (Gilli T?)

      01/01 Gilli (Gilli T?)

      02/01 Bali (Sanur?)

      03/01 Bali (Sanur?)


      I would be ever so grateful if you could share some ideas on which areas might be best for me to visit/stay for each of the proposed stops - as well as let me know if the itinerary is realistic. I would like the trip to be as comfortable as possible (I'm not a backpacker/hostel type), though, having said that, I will be on a budget (perhaps 3-star). As my trip is over the festive season, do you think that the date allocation for each stop is appropriate or should I make changes to the order that I plan to make each stop? I would also like the order of the itinerary to be appropriate and practical for departing for the next stop on my trip.

      I have found that there are just so many variations and possible itineraries that cater for different interests, and I have just found it all very overwhelming, and not found a detailed itinerary that fully grabs me.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Effects of Volcanic Ash in the city

      Bali Aug 8, 2015 at 7:36 AM

      I wonder if someone who is now in Bali can provide an update on the pollution level as a result of the volcanic ash. There was a report on BBC - August 7, showing damage to local crops and the thick ash on the crops and the locals using face masks. Would it be advisable to bring face mask for people going there in the next few days? In the hotels does the ash cover the surfaces...beds, tables, etc.? Just wanted to know what kind of an experience it is at this time. Thank you.

      Visas, payments and money exchange

      Bali Aug 1, 2015 at 5:04 AM

      Hi hoping for some up to date advice...

      1) Am I correct that since June 2015 the visa-free policy is granted to foreign nationals of 30 additional countries and this now includes the UK so we will not now need to pay the US 35 dollar entry visa fee?

      2) Is there a charge for departing the country as I have also read that the departure tax should be included in flight price. I'm getting confused reading advice to other people, on different forums on other sites. Any up to date advice would be great.

      3) I know it is best to change to IDR there so would you take GBP travellers cheques or cash?

      Thanks JB

    • Three weeks in Bali 27th February and Alcohol

      Bali Aug 20, 2015 at 12:32 PM

      My wife and I are due to spend about 3 weeks in Bali. We are both aged related pensioners and my last visit to a Muslim country was many years ago where alcohol was and is still prohibited. Not wishing to offend but like to have a glass or two of wine, especially with meals, I ask for advice. Not wanting to stay in 5 star hotels but prefer small guest house. Are there such places, that serve alcohol as in reasonably priced; Gin and Tonics, and wine ?
      Are there off licences/ stores where wines are readily available ?
      Can anyone advise on the best area for us to get a taxi to from the airport, to find such a Guest House, private facilities and hopefully a sea view. We will already have spent two months travelling so cost must be considered. We look for a; peaceful, tranquil setting but reasonably central for a few day excursions and site seeing.

      Journey from Labuan Bajo to Wae Rebo

      Pulau Flores Feb 13, 2014 at 11:13 PM


      I am in desperate need for accurate advice please. I have searched on the Internet and most tourgroup sites say the journey from Labuan Bajo to Denge / Dintor by car is about 4hrs. But the guide I am talking to says its 7-8hrs! Can someone be so kind to confirm which is right?

      Unfortunately my friend and i are on a budget and unable to afford the expensive tourgroup prices so we would like to book our own car with driver from Labuan Bajo. Has anyone booked before?? How much does it cost typically from Labuan Bajo to Denge?

      The other option is to go from Nangalili by ferry to Mules. Has anyone taken this route before??

      Also any idea whom I can contact to help book the homestay in Denge and Wae Rebo?

      We leave next week so any tips on this would be most helpful.

      Thank you!

Kelimutu, and then squeeze in some snorkeling. Would that all be possible in 5 days or should I cut something off? It's sooo hard to choose so please kindly advise what would work best for the 5days!

    • Should I book a tour to Komodo before or wait until I arrive

      Pulau Flores Aug 3, 2012 at 5:38 PM

      I will be visiting Bali in a couple of weeks. I am planning on visiting Komodo and Rinca islands. I am debating on whether to book a tour online now, book a tour while I'm on Bali, or just fly to Labuan Bajo and hire a tour from there? My fear is if I book a tour online that I might get scammed. Also, I figure that it might be cheaper to book from either Bali or Labuan Bajo.

      I'm leaning towards booking a Komodo tour from a company while on Bali.

      I'm planning to go from Bali or Lombok to Komodo but don't know what would be the bes way to get there

      I have heard that taking a tour from Bali to Komodo is very expensive.

      As I'm on quite low budget, I'd be happy if someone can recommend a good way to get to Komodo.

      In total I'll be in the area for 7 days (flying in and out from Bali), so on quite packed schedule. Would it be enoug time to see Bali, Lombok and Komodo?

      I am thinking fly from Denpasar to LabuanBajo on the Saturday and catch the flight from Ende to Denpasar the following Friday. Then I would have about 5 days to visit Rica and see the Kelimutu. Do you think this is feasible even if it would be a bit rush?

      Also to go from LabuanBajo to Ende, beside the public bus, is there any possibility to rend a private car with driver. As several of us will be traveling together, it could be more comfortable and faster.
