      Travelling to Jemaja with a baby

      Indonesia Mar 2, 2015 at 7:34 PM

      I'm planning to meet my parents in Pulua Jemaja, Letong Kampong on or around the 25th March for about 5/6 days. I'm based in Singapore.

      The problem is that I'm travelling with my 10 month old baby. Although she is a good traveller, I don't fancy my chances at keeping her happy and content for what seems would be a whole day of travelling on VERY long ferry trips.

      So very simply I would like to know if there is a quicker (doesn't matter if it's more expensive) way to get there. I did wonder about driving up to Mersing and getting a ferry from there, or even flying up to Kuantan and getting a ferry from there but I don't know how regular (or if at all) ferries go from either of these places.

      If anyone has any tips I'd love to hear them!

      Thanks,
      Rachel

    • Yogyakarta-Bromo-Ijen-Bali trip

      Indonesia Mar 5, 2015 at 10:44 AM

      Hi! I am travelling to yogyakarta in the end of march with my family and we are trying to plan the whole jogja-bromo-ijen-bali trip. There are 7 of us, so I am guessing it is better to travel by road rather than train. I am not sure if flight is a better option as compared to the long road journey between jogja and bromo. Any suggestions?

      Also, could any of you please suggest a good travel agency who can arrange a car and guide for us for the whole trip from jogja to ijen? What would be the approximate cost for this 5D4N trip covering prambanan, borobudur, bromo and ijen including accommodation and travel? Could you please share contact details of reliable and reasonable travel agencies from jogja if you have them.

      Thanks.

      Bali Mar 16, 2015 at 5:09 AM

      Me and my friends are in a tight budget travelling to Bali. We are very much interested in observing and blend in with the local culture, which is better? Ubud or Batubulan considering the budget factor. Which temple should we visited to experience the richness of culture in Bali? We thinking of staying for three nights. with one day at the beach. This is our first time there and is public transport or tourist shuttle bus is available to go to these places?

      The initial itinerary as follow; first day in Kuta(pantai Kuta)/South Kuta(padang-padang beach) for the beaches-second day to Uluwati for the beaches,temple and GWK-third day and fourth to either Ubud/Batubulan for the cultural sightseeing.

      I know I am Missing a lot of thing but any suggestion for the itineraries? We are very flexible but on tight budget(sorry for mentioning it again and again...lols)

      Transport for 3 day trip (Ubud, Nusa Dua, Kuta)

      Bali Jan 6, 2015 at 9:29 PM

      Hi all, It seems hiring a private car / tour guide+driver is the best way to go around Bali. I am arriving to the airport early 8am in March 7 and departing about the same time in March 10, so that leaves me with three full days of sampling the island. I have already booked accommodations in Ubud, Nusa Dua and Kuta. My question is with transportation and if it is feasible to get a driver (or at least the same booking serivce) for the duration of the trip, and a rough estimate of the costs? Would be great to get contact details of drivers you've tried so I can start inquiring too.

      My route and estimated travel time is as follows:

      Day 1: Airport (8am pick-up)) >> Tirta Gangga >> Ubud hotel (3pm drop-off)  -- halfday trip

      Day 2: Ubud hotel (10 am pick-up) >> Taman Ayun >> Tanah Lot >> Nusa Dua hotel (4pm drop-off)  - halfday trip

      Day 3: Nusa Dua hotel (1pm pick-up) >> Kuta hotel  (should I take taxi instead, and how much?)

      Departure: Kuta hotel (6:30am pick-up) >> Airport   (should I take taxi instead, and how much?)

      Thanks! Ellie

      Accommodations near Kupu Kupu Barong Villas or closer to town

      Ubud Dec 31, 2014 at 7:27 AM

      I'd read some really conflicting reviews of the above place, and while the setting looks fantastic, the food looked awfully lacklustre and expensive. Given that it's a bit off the beaten path, are there any other places of the same range and style nearby that you could recommend? Or....even closer to town, but preferably with elevation.
      We arrive Friday evening.

      Hello
      I would deeply appreciate advice on the following:
      I’m planning a flight to Manado with my family (2 adults and 2 children 11yrs old) on April 2015.
      How much time do I have to consider when I land on Wednesday at 22:05 pm with international flight (Qatar Airways from Doha) at terminal 2 D in Jakarta to take a connection flight to Manado?
      I have check-in luggage and want to take local flight to Manado at 01:45 with Batik Air at terminal 3 but I don't know if 3:40 is enough time to get off from one flight, pass through immigration (I will get the Visa in advance in France, in order to gain some time) and check our luggage in Batik Air and board the plane.

      Many thanks in advance

      Hi there

      I have a flight from Dili Timor Leste to Bali on Sriwijaya Air and then i have a connecting flight to Jakarta in the afternoon like less than 2 hrs after landing

      I was wondering is it very quick process to let says get off the plane, pay the $35USD for Visa On arrival, get stamped into Indonesia, exit customs then find my way to DOMESTIC DEPARTURES where they probably gave me my Jakarta boarding pass in Dili and all whats left is to pay domestic departure tax and go through security as there is no need to exit Indonesia as this is a Domestic flight

      I am flying Sriwijaya Air so does this mean there is a seperate terminal at Bali airport for Domestic flights?

      Also how much do i pay for departure tax tax for a domestic flight

      I have never traveled to Bali Airport before as next week will be a huge challenge and I cant miss my flight to Jakarta as that means having to by another flight

      Need some quick responses as I'm trying to decide whether to visit Bali pre-Christmas till Boxing Day and need to book flights soon.

      1. What beach is good for snorkeling? I did some research and seems Blue Lagoon and Amed are good?

      2. The beaches that are good for snorkelling seem further away than the usual Kuta, Nusa Dua etc. How do I get there? Any idea of cost of driver and car hire? Is it possible to get a driver and car from the airport or do I have to pre-book?

      3. Is it a good idea to travel from this seemingly out of the way beach to Ubud?
