Starting May 2014 visiting Bromo will become much more expensive, according to what we read in the newspaper "Jawa Pos".
The government has decided to raise the entrance fee for the National Park (not including jeep tour and horse trip) by several hundred percent, and to set a different tariff for weekdays and for holidays.
For foreign tourists the fee was Rp 57,000 per person; this will become Rp 267,000 on weekdays and Rp 400,500 during weekends and holidays.
Local tourists (including foreigners holding a residence permit) used to pay Rp 10,000. This will become Rp 37,500 on weekdays and Rp 52,500 during weekends and holidays.
The tariffs include a Rp 2,500 insurance fee.

Hubby and I are traveling to bali late Oct for 5 nights and really need help with accommodation! I'm looking at villas approx $200/ night and would love it to be near the beach. The problem is most of the accommodation near the beach are hotels :( should I stay a little further from beach n get the villa or should I just get a beach front hotel?We would like a relaxing trip with lots of massages and casual drinks.. Any recommendation would be appreciated:)

I´m routing the hotel distance to Ijen:
google maps route from ketapang hotel to Ijen: 1h (set 2h) goo.gl/maps/o5mPX
google maps route from ijen resort hotel to Ijen: 40m(set 1h20) goo.gl/maps/bLgA8
google maps route from sempol (arabika, catimor) to ijen: 25m (set 50m) goo.gl/maps/l2Qb4
is the journey from Ketapang to Ijen only a hour more than Arabika and catimor?
I´ve found out this map: ijenresort.com/images/map.gi... as well
We will be in Sumatra for only one day, from 6:00a.m. until 8:00p.m. on a Saturday in April, 2014. We would like to spend it with the elephants in Tangkahan. Can someone please tell us (1.) if it's feasible to make the journey from Belawan to Tangkahan and back to Belawan in that time period, (2.) the distance / how long the trip is from Belawan to Tangkahan, (3.) what types of transportation are available for this trip -- car and driver? train? bus? ferry? -- and (4.) whether one needs to make advance reservations for transportation and also to wash the elephants. Many thanks for any guidance you may be able to provide.

One more question: My mobile is bought from Thailand. So, it shouldn't get locked if I use any indonesian sim I guess.. is it?
As far as I know Nyepy this year will be on 31st March
Actually I have a travel plan where I didn´t consider to be in Bali for the Nyepy
I have some questions :
- Is it the Nyepy, and the day before, an opportunity and very interesting to see and to live, that is worth to change our travel plans to be there those days ?
- Nyepy day, I understand is a day when we must stay in the hotel and we can not do any activity
- Is it Ubud the right place to be during these days ?
- What are we expecting to see and to do during Nyepy days ?
Thank you for your information
First of all I hope that the situation created by the Kellud volcano will become to the normality with the alerts reduced and the people doing their normal living
We are planning to visit East Java and going by land from Gogyakarta up to Banyuwangi , visiting Mt. Bromo and Mt. Ijen at the end of March
I know that things may change very fast, but do you think that in that time every thing should be recovered and that this route may be done without much risks and with the normal commodities ?
It should be good to prepare a "plan B" just in case ?
I hope every thing is much better on that side
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.
Every 2 year my wife gives me a leave pass for up to 8 weeks to go travelling rough. I love it and she hates it. I am a very fit 58 Australian male and have hitch hiked in Europe, USA, Middle East and Africa. I am interested in hitch hiking in Indonesia (not interested in Bali). Would love to hear from anyone who has done so.... places to visit, cheap accommodation ( i have slept on cardboard and concrete) tips etc. would be much appreciated.
how is the weather in August at Komodo. We want to arrange a day tour to Komodo, I know that from Labuan Bajo to Komodo there is about 3 hours way by boat, and our child suffer from seasickness. It will be big problem for her? Maybe from Labuan Bajo depart some small light aircrafts to National Park Komodo? Please for advices?
Like many people, I would like to do the classic itinerary Yogyakarta-Bromo-Iljen, but without arranged tours and preferring the train. Here are the steps and information I found so far, but I would be glad to have some remarks/confirmations from people who have done the same way.
The best would be to take the executive train from Yogyakarta to Surabaya. It leaves at 7:15 and arrives at 12:15. The first train to Probolinggo leaves at 1:50pm so to save time we would take a taxi to the bus station; bus are supposed to be frequent to PB, but how frequent? After a 2-3 hour ride, find a public minibus to Cemoro Lawang, leaving when full. I hope to arrive at Cemoro Lawang before 6pm. Find the hotel and book the jeep for the next morning.
After the sunrise and the Bromo walk, the jeep is supposed to get us back to the hotel around 8:30-9:00. Then we need to find a public minubus which goes to Probolinggo. The train to Banyuwangi leaves PB at 11:06, but do we have enough time to get it? Has anyone already made it? I guess the alternative is to find a public bus to Banyuwangi; are there such bus with A/C? When in Banyuwangi, find a hotel close to Paltuding and book transportation for the next morning (car with driver, who would take us from the hotel to Paltuding and wait until we come back to drive us back to the hotel).
Thank you very much for your help.
