I have been living in Bengkulu for over half a year now and it is about time for me to go back to the States, but before I leave my friend wants to take me on a short trip here in Indonesia. I have been really interested in going to Way Kambas park to try and see some of the animals there but recently I have also been interested in seeing Anak Krakatau. If I was in Lampung province for 4 or 5 days would it be possible to see both?
Does anyone know of someone who could help us get from Way Kambas to Krakatau or just help us with planning a trip in that area? I am very open to suggestions.
I am going to Bali for 2 weeks in September. I am a mature single female travelling along. I'd like to stay in 3 or 4 places while I'm there--I'd like to see some culture and religious temples, but would like to spend 4-5 days at the beach. I'm considering Amed (Eka Purnama cottages), maybe Sideman, Ubud, perhaps Sideman. I am a little concerned about getting around. Could someone let me know whether the places I've chosen work to show Balinese culture, with some beach? And can I get around between them pretty easily. Grateful for any answers--there are just so many possible places to go. Thanks!
trekking in ketambe
Can anyone give me info on Way Kambas and/or Krakatau? I want to visit both places later in May. Is it possible to get a ride from Way Kambas to a boat that I could take to Krakatau? Is there any place to stay in or near the Elephant Training Center in Way Kambas? What about Krakatoa?
We are a couple who are going to Yogyakarta to study for a semester, from September to February this year. Do any of you have any recommendations regarding places to live? Price isn't really a big issue, as Indonesia is cheap in comparison to our home country. We were looking at this place tigalima.wordpress.com/room-... (the Room Deluxe), but they were full.
Would be nice if it wasn't too far from UGM :)
Thanks in advance!
Where would you recommend if I were to do some sort of crash course to learn the bahasa? I've been to Indonesia a couple times, in some instances to less frequented places where I had problems getting through with English only.
I know I'm not good at learning languages from books or on the computer, so can anyone recommend a school whatsoever where I could learn interacting with a small group or class. I can pay something for it if it's not too expensive.
Looking for an overnight trekking in the jungle in Indonesia, to see animals, especially slow loris. Have heard about Ketambe but having trouble finding Johan's contact. Are there other good options? And does anyone have a contact for Johan at Wisma cinta Alam. I will be coming from Bali or Java.
I was recently recommend UBUD as a destination to consider for time out to recover my health, and reignite my spirit, emotionally, physically and artistically. I am single, a photographer / graphic designer and seek a safe place to call home for 2 mths.
On my wish list is the following:
Advise given to me was to find a nice place to stay and then go and visit a place called the Yoga Barn as from there I could find many opportunities for health / healing networking and so forth etc.
Does anyone have any tips for art workshops of any kind? A central place like the Yoga Barn maybe and a website perhaps etc.
Are their any forums one can use to network - maybe to find other people in Ubud where one can share interests - ie photography, or just hook up for coffee etc.
I am planning to go Sept / October
I am not a beach or bar person. More inclined to seek peaceful environs....
Many thanks in anticipation.
P.S. I am in my 40's so I would like some comforts but it doesn't have to be extravagant. Gone are the days of backpacking :)
trekking in ketambe sumatra with a 5 and 8 year old is it possible
I am planning to fly to Jogja in the first week of June to visit Borobudur and Prambanan. I hope to be able to stay at the Princess Manohara Hotel (if room is available) and wonder if this is a good time of the year to visit both UNESCO World Heritage sites, re: weather wise and people wise (how busy it gets at this time of year)? Appreciate any relevant advice.
Hi, I am a single mature female travelling to Bali for 2 weeks. I'd like to see cultural sites and religious temples, and to spend 4-5 days at the beach. I am considering Amed (Eka Purnama), Ubud, Munduk, and maybe Sideman. I'm a little concerned about how I will get around between these different places. I'd like to stay at 3 or 4 places max so I am not running around the whole time. Any suggestions would be welcome! I'm also interested in renting a car for the day and touring--any suggestions about that would be great. Thanks!
