    • VOA extension or Tourist Visa??? (Repost - not sure if first post went through)

      Bali Yesterday

      Hey guys,

      Myself and a friend are heading to Bali at the end of this month, with the plan to stay there for around 60 days (until around xmas time). But I have still yet to decide whether to get a Tourist Visa beforehand or get our VOAs extended while we are out there. In regards to the VOA extension, do you have to leave and come back into Indonesia (and fly to say Singapore and back) or can you get the extension done without leaving Bali? Also as an additional note, I went to Bali by myself earlier this summer and got a VOA, but didn't get it extended, and left on time (I was there for 29 days). Also we both don't live far from the Indonesian Consulate in London where we would go to get our Tourist Visas.

      So yes if you guys are able to help and give clarity around what you feel is the best option to go for the VOA extension or the tourist visa , such input will be greatly appreciated!

      Many thanks,

      Journey from Labuan Bajo to Wae Rebo

      by redhafaikah Online Now Feb 13, 2014 at 11:13 PM


      I am in desperate need for accurate advice please. I have searched on the Internet and most tourgroup sites say the journey from Labuan Bajo to Denge / Dintor by car is about 4hrs. But the guide I am talking to says its 7-8hrs! Can someone be so kind to confirm which is right?

      Unfortunately my friend and i are on a budget and unable to afford the expensive tourgroup prices so we would like to book our own car with driver from Labuan Bajo. Has anyone booked before?? How much does it cost typically from Labuan Bajo to Denge?

      The other option is to go from Nangalili by ferry to Mules. Has anyone taken this route before??

      Also any idea whom I can contact to help book the homestay in Denge and Wae Rebo?

      We leave next week so any tips on this would be most helpful.

      Thank you!

      Flores in 5 days

      by redhafaikah Online Now Jan 28, 2014 at 9:52 PM


      There's so many thing to see & experience in Flores that I'm spoilt for choice. Alas, I only have 5 days. :( My wish-list: to Pulau Rinca to see the Komodos, Ruteng to stay at the Wae Rebo village and see Liang Bua cave then Cunca Wulang Canyon, Mt. Kelimutu, and then squeeze in some snorkeling. Would that all be possible in 5 days or should I cut something off? It's sooo hard to choose so please kindly advise what would work best for the 5days! Thank you!

    • Should I book a tour to Komodo before or wait until I arrive

      by exploremore Online Now Aug 3, 2012 at 5:38 PM

      I will be visiting Bali in a couple of weeks. I am planning on visiting Komodo and Rinca islands. I am debating on whether to book a tour online now, book a tour while I'm on Bali, or just fly to Labuan Bajo and hire a tour from there? My fear is if I book a tour online that I might get scammed. Also, I figure that it might be cheaper to book from either Bali or Labuan Bajo.

      I'm leaning towards booking a Komodo tour from a company while on Bali.

    • Information on transportation to Flores

      by chongce Online Now Nov 21, 2007 at 8:46 PM

      Hi, I am planning to visit Flores and Komodo Island at this end of December. Is it the right season to visit these two islands? Can anyone provide me the following information:
      1) where to get the bus cum ferry ticket from Mataram,Lombok to Labuhan Bajo, Flores? How much is the cost and how long long it takes to arrive at Labuhan Bajo? And whether can I get the same transport package from Labuhan Bajo back to Mataram?

      2) Can I travel to Moni from Labuhan Bajo by public transport in 1 or 2 day? How much? Any better suggestion?

      Trasnportation to Maumere, Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.

      by naibaho Online Now Mar 28, 2006 at 6:06 AM

      can somebody tell me how to get to Maumere, Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.

      I want to go there but did not have any information on the transportation. Would you mind telling me what kind of transportation that I need to take to get there and what are the options. My starting point will be Jakarta, Indonesia. Do you think I should fly to Denpasar, Bali or other city such as Kupang or Mataram? and then cross the island with small boat? Or probably anyone has better suggestion.

      Thank you very much for your help, I really appreciate it.
