    • Contact details for Hotel Jati Asih?

      Soe 7 hours ago

      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... :-(

    • Raja Ampat transport

      Raja Ampat Dec 1, 2014 at 2:07 PM

      Hi,
      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

      Bandung Experts...?

      Bandung Dec 14, 2014 at 11:14 PM

      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.
      Terima Kasih

    • Which beach for Snorkelling? getting there advice needed as well

      Bali Dec 10, 2014 at 9:15 PM

      Hi all

      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!
