      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!

    • Honeymoon In Bali for a non sun lover?

      Bali Jun 3, 2014 at 6:25 AM

      Yes I know most people go to Bali for the beautiful beaches, which obviously mean lots of time in the sun. Me and my fiance are currently looking at Honeymoons in September and considering Bali, but my fiance has very pale skin and will probably burn within 5-10 minutes. So any prolonged periods in the sun are not advised.

      However she also loves Orangutans and I think would love the culture, food and other wild life. We're looking for a place which is quiet, relaxing with opportunities for water sports, wildlife and cultural stuff nearby. I suspect any time we spend on the beach will be in the evenings when the suns gone down.

      Can anyone recommend a particular area and/or hotel which might suit our needs? and where's best to see Orangutans? And is there enough non-beach related activities to keep us occupied for 10 days? Baring in mind we're planning on a relaxed pace.

      Hi Everyone!!

      My fiance and I are wanting to have a honeymoon in Bali in September its not until 2015 but are wanting to get ideas of places to stay so that we can do some research.

      I think we are pretty set on staying at the Four Seaons Resort Sayan in Ubub and will stay there for 4-5 nights - does anyone have any advice or have stayed there before?

      We then are looking for a place to stay for 4-5 nights preferably would love to have a villa with our own pool but not sure of location whether it is Seminyak or Jimbaran Bay or somewhere else? I have only been to Bali once before and stayed in Legian the area was nice but not something for a honeymoon. What can people suggest and if they know of a place we can stay.

      As the Four Seaons is quite pricey we would be looking at spending no more than $500 (Australian Dollars) per night for our second place in Bali. We are then going to go somewhere else after this whether it be in Asia or South Pacific Islands.

      Thanks :)
