      Kintamani or Ulun Danu Temple?

      Bali Mar 30, 2014 at 8:51 PM

      I will be in Ubud for 2 days. I have a plan for Goa Gajah at first. Then, I was planning to go for Ulun Danu Temple for a whole day. After seeing images of Kintamani, I am a bit confused. KIntamni seems to be more beautiful. Can you guys please help me decide.
      Or may be you can help me to know how to cover both.

      Also, please let me know whether there is any reliable travel agency you already know who can help me for this.

      Public Swimming Pool in South Jakarta

      Jakarta Apr 14, 2014 at 12:23 AM

      I think I'm getting desperate in finding a swimming pool that suits my need near my place in Cipete

      - the one in arcadia is always crowded on weekends and quite spooky on weekday nights (and the bathrooms are rundown)
      - the one in talavera used dark natural stone tiling but only provide 1 underwater lamp so it's almost like swimming blind
      - the one in oktroi is quite ok but finding a parking space is stressing me out
      - the one in citos is also parking-space challenged
      (okay...I know I'm starting to sound like Ms.Nitpicky hahaha)

      Any other place you can recommend?
      I usually swim after office hours ( so after 6pm ) on weekdays
      Nothing fancy, just need decent changing rooms and easy parking.

      What choice do I have?

      Bali Apr 12, 2014 at 3:07 AM

      I am interested in a rafting tour in Bali.
      I am wondering what choice do I have?
      I was having a look at some websites.
      Now I am having the impression that 20 companies are doing the marketing for 2 or 3 tour operators.
      Preferably I would like to book at the tour company itself, and not a pricy website operated by an american company.

      How many boats are rafting down at Ayun river every day?
      In the marketing it looks like only one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
      And that cannot be true.
      I guess there are plenty of them going down the river.

What can I do with my backpack (70 liter) until I can check in in my accommodation? I don’t have booking cause I want to see the room before taking it. Does anyone know a safe place where I can leave my backpack until I check in? Can I leave my backpack at the police station? Can I trust them? If so, is there a police station in town?
      Also, do you have a safe, clean and cheap accommodation to suggest? I’m on a budget and I saw rooms around 100 000-120 000 roupies, but there’s not much info about them on trip advisor.
      And last questions: which bus goes from the airport to town? And which street can I find most of the guesthouse, homestay or budget hotel?

    • About Bali

      Bali Apr 1, 2014 at 6:47 PM

      I'm looking to go to Bali in early June for 2 weeks & wondered where's the best area to be in - by the beach in a 4* or 5* hotel that we can visit places of interest from there or chill out some of the time as well? What are the MUST VISIT places in Bali & is there places to go out at night time - for a meal & or just a few drinks, all within walking distance of our hotel? We like to sample the local food & to try different restaurants over our holiday. I must point out that my husband & I are in our 50's when I asked the question. We do enjoy lively at night time, but not too wild -18-30s's. Does Bali have street food (like Thailand) that's safe & good to eat? We've had Indonesian food in UK & other countries before & it's delicious!!!! Is it cheap to eat out in Bali? Once there, is Bali good value?

      3 days 2 night itinerary and driver in Yogyakarta and Burobudur

      Yogyakarta Mar 12, 2014 at 1:47 AM

      Hello all!

      My friend and I are planning a 3 days 2 nights trip to Yogya and Burobudur. We likw culture and history and have planned the itinerary as follows:

      Day 1
      Arrive in Yogya airport 1pm
      Lunch in Yogya
      Ratu Boko (is it worth going?)
      Check in hotel (appx 10-15 drive from Burobudur)

      Day 2
      Burobudur Sunrise Tour
      Burobudor whole day
      Lunch and dinner at nearby hotels (walkable from the monument)

      Day 3
      Check out hotel after breakfast
      Drive to Yogya
      Lunch in Yogya
      Souvenir shopping

      I have contacted a few drivers and received quotation of appx 350k to 450k rupiah for each day (Day 1 and 3). Is this price reasonable? What is the usual price for car and driver hire? Essentially I only need the driver for about 6-7 hours per day but it seemed that the price quoted is for a full day trip?

      Appreciate any advise or further suggestions!

      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.
