Can anyone give me road directions to get to this resteraunt please?
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?)
I am wondering if you have traveled to the Takengon area of Indonesia. If so, can you recommend where I should fly into to get there? I am also from the PNW (Vancouver, Washington) and thought that you would have a good insight as to how I should do this travel. Thank you for your advice in advance! Connie K
Can anyone confirm that you can disembark your ship at Komodo, pay $US25 park entrance fee, and then ask a Park Guide to take you on the tour for a fee? We are trying to avoid the extremely expensive ship's tour
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.
I heard there is ferry kupang to Aimere
Where can I get the tickets, check the schedule and is it daily ferry?
I will celebrate new year 2015 in Bandung, where is a best place for count down?
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
Hello Folks !!
I'll be traveling solo to Bali next week i.ee Dec 25-29 and i'd appreciate if anyone can help me with a good 5D itinerary.Well since theres so much to do and see in Bali,I'd like to restrict my self to Temples,nature and other aspects of cultural significance to Bali.I'm not much into beaches or night clubs.
Also,can anyone recommend me a good tour operator ?
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
Hello, I visited Soe 3 weeks ago (November 2014), and stayed at hotel Jati Asih. Pretty nice and cheap place, which was recommended on the Lonely Planet. The problem is that I forgot a camera in my room when I checked out. I've been desperately trying to get in touch with the hotel, but the number I have seems to be wrong, because I can't get through. The number I have is 038822407
Can somebody please help?? I'm really sad to lose not just the camera but all my photos on the memory card... :-(
I'll be arriving in Bali next week from India and i have been told that i cannot exchange USD $100 bills printed prior to 2006.Is this correct ? The USD $100 bills i have received from my forex agent are the newer 2009A series bills,the one with Blue 3D security ribbon ? Is this something i need to worry about ?
I'm about to head off on a magazine assignment to Bandung, Java, and I wondered if anyone could recommend any really exciting (and preferably unexpected) things to see or do...? Anything that is new or particularly iconic for Bandung (ie not something you can easily see elsewhere) would be perfect.
Is it cheap to live in Bali more than 6 months i.e. and operate an online business. Is there good internet etc there?
Where to stay?
Point of interest?

Hello...I am trying to arrange a tour to Rantepao but they are charging a fortune...Can anyone recommend a reliable guide with a fair price? How much would be for a 4 days tour from Makassar? tks
Am considering a short trip and Bandung is on the list. However, the impression I get is that traffic may be mad during this period. Any advice on this? What's Christmas like in Bandung?
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?
Thanks for replies!
Any tips when travel to Bali?

I am going to Raja Ampat In about two weeks. I will arrive in Sorong next December 24, and i will spend 9 days staying in two different homestays. I have a few questions:
I would like to stay in Batanta island; is there a public transport to get there?(I am travelling alone)
Is it better to book the homestays in advance or is it easy to find a place when i get there?
Do you know some good homestays on different island Which are possible to reach without spending a lot of money chartering a boat just for myself? (I would like a place with beach-front snorkeling)
Thank you very much for your information
Bye bye Alessandro
