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

      Bali Oct 3, 2015 at 3:50 AM

      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,

      Semarang-Ambarawa-Dieng Plateau-Solo-Jogja

      by reublim Online Now Jun 1, 2014 at 6:40 AM


      I will be flying into Semarang with a friend on 22 Aug and need to arrive in Jogja by 30 Aug to meet up with other friends to continue travelling in Jogja and beyond. So far I'm looking at this itinerary:
      Day 1 (Semarang)
      Day 2 (Semarang)
      Day 3 (Semarang, Ambarawa)
      Day 4 (Ambarawa, Dieng Plateau)
      Day 5 (Dieng Plateau, Solo)
      Day 6 (Solo)
      Day 7 (Solo)
      Day 8 (Solo)
      Day 9 (Merapi tour)

      Is this a good route, or are there any suggestions how to better connect these places together?
      Also, how to travel from place to place would be helpful too. Any recommendations for guides with contacts can be sent as private messages.

    • Wedding in Semarang

      by mbash Online Now Dec 15, 2008 at 11:06 PM

      My fiance and I are planning to get married in Semarang sometimes next year. I have visited Semarang before but only as a tourist. It would be nice if anybody can share some information of a nice place to hold a wedding reception. Both of us are very simple and we have limited budget and come from big families.

      Here is what we are looking for:

      1. A cosy cheap but nice reception area that can stand around 500 people.
      2. We both like simple minimalist decoration but beautiful.
      3. I am looking for a nice taylor (boutique) were I can make a nice and cheap wedding dress.
      4. A house for rent so my family can stay there during the wedding.

      I would appreciate if you help me with some of these info. Thank you
