Do you know if there are buses or taxis at that time to go to Cemara Lawang or Wonokitri? I think it's good to see the sunrise, but I'm not sure if I can find transportation from the train station to the volcano at that time. Can anyone help me?

      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!

      Pulau Ambon Aug 19, 2011 at 4:04 AM

      I have the honor of bringing to Ambon via Jakarta, a party of ex Jap-POW's- British World War 11 veterans. Many are now in the late 80s -early 90s and it will be a very poingnant visit, and realistically, probably their last visit. Many are now widowers, living on their own, and some are quite impoverished. The trip is being funded by some charities, and National Lottery. However there will be little spare spending money and I need to look at making savings wherever possible.

      Any offers of assistance by way of being a point of contact general adviser, and occasional tour guide would be appreciated. Wages are terrible-NONE! But a few beers, and the gratitude of the veterans will be on offer. Plus autograph signing and photoshoots.

      Maluku Province Jan 21, 2008 at 6:26 AM

      Hi everyone

      We have been doing some research on my wifes family tree, and found that her ancestors (Cornabe) are from the Moluccas Islands, and it seems mainly Ternate. In fact Alexander Cornabe was governor there in 1780-1793. His wife was Margaretha Durr, and they all eventually track back to Holland.

      We would like to visit the island, but i can find very little on island transport and hotels. Could you help us with a contact to arrange accomodation and transport, and have you any knowledge about how we may be able to look at records of the islands history?

      Currently we plan to visit in September/October 2008 and will be coming from the UK, but there does seem to be plenty of information on the travel side, so no problems there.

      Any help you can give would be really appreciated.
