      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.

       

      Thanks,

      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.

    • From Kuta Kinabalu to Labuan Klambu

      by peterjwilliamson Online Now Aug 26, 2011 at 10:39 AM

      Hello. I would really appreciate some advice from anyone in the know.

      I will fly to Kinabalu from Kuala Lumpar around 20th Feb 2012. I have no time constraints and will be taking around 6k with me.

      I have no real plan, but I really want to see the salt AND freshwater Lake Labuan Cermin near Labuan Klambu.

      What means of public transport would I have available? Will this break my budget for other countries attempting this - tour guide and pass costs etc? I see some tours online and costs can be nearly £1000 for just a few days! I would be happy I could just reach this place on my own.

      I'll be travelling alone and backpacking it. I can live in cheap accomodation and am not really heading for any party scenes. Having to wait for a few days here and there wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

      Any info will be greatly appreciated

      We would like to hire a klotok for 3 nights, 2 days this August in Tanjung Puting NP. We are going to arrive in Kumai and would like to know if it is advisable to book hire in advance or should we be ok to wait until we are there? We have been quoted £550 for 2 people (food, entry inc), seems steep or am I tight? Also, is this the best way to see the park or are there any alternatives you have tried? Thanks.

      by reu Online Now Jan 3, 2007 at 10:18 PM

      Has anyone visited the western portion of Kalimantan, specifically I'm interested in Gunung Palung National Park outside of Ketapang? Is it accessible? Is it worth visiting over other Orangutan sanctuaries? I've heard these orangutans are "wild" and not rescued. Is it worth the effort to get to such a remote location or would our time be better spent on the east and south coasts? Any feedback would be most helpful.:)

      weather december-february and other things

      by picek Online Now Oct 17, 2005 at 2:32 AM

      Hello, selamat pagi to all again,

      I need your advice-help again:)
      how is the weather like in Sabah and Sarawak from December-February? Lots of rain?

      How about prices if you compare that with peninsular Malaysia... is it lot more expensive (accomodation-guest houses, bus, food...etc) in Sarawak-Sabah?

      And what is popular (local) food there:)?

      Terima kasih for all answers. Saya menghargainya!

      from Pontianak to Kuching

      by picek Online Now Oct 2, 2005 at 7:02 AM

      Selamat pagi, dear VTers!
      This is my first question at VT forum and I hope one can help me with it:) I am travelling to Indonesia/Malaysia this winter and I have limited time of 3,5 months all together for this trip. First I would like to stay 1 month in Malaysia and then I have to go out of country, because without visa I can be there only 1 month. Then I was thinking about 2 or 1,5 month of Indonesia,so far I haven't decided about where to go there yet as it seems all so huge and the matter of distances is also unknown to me. However, there's a question I would like to ask you, those who are familiar with Klimatan/Sarawak: is there any overland border crossing (official) between the two states? How about travel between Sarawak and Sabah and then return to Peninsular Malaysia?
      Thanks for all your answers in advance. Terima kasih!
