    • Transportation in Ternate Island

      Ternate Apr 30, 2015 at 12:31 AM

      I'm going to Ternate Island in the coming July.

      (1) Can we pick up ojek or a taxi at the airport in order to go to some downtown area ?
      (2) If we wanna use a taxi in a town, can we find one on the street ?
      (3) If we wanna rent a taxi for one day excurtion - say, 8 hours - how much will it be ? A rough idea is okay.

      Hi there,

      We are a group of 7 adults and 5 kids (below 10 yrs) traveling to Bali in June. I am having a difficult time finding a 4 br villa for all of us. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions. We are looking to stay 5 nights and want a villa with a pool. Anything under USD 600/700 per night will be good with us...

    • Karma Jimbaran through The Bali Getaway

      Jimbaran Apr 13, 2015 at 6:41 PM

      We are looking at staying at Karma Jimbaran through a Bali Getaway offer. I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with either the Karma Jimbaran or The Bali Getaway.
      The price they have offered is incredibly cheap and from what I have found out this is because they are going to try and sell us timeshare and take us to a 2 hour (expecting half day) sales pitch. I'm fine with that and happy to give them a half day for the price.
      I just want to make sure that I'm not going to pay and then find out that it was a total scam and my money disappears.

      I would also love any feedback on the resort itself.

      Thanks so much,

      Cathy

      First days in Bali

      Bali Apr 19, 2015 at 4:27 AM

      Hej :)
      I'm arriving on Bali in the first days of May and would like to hear your opinion about how to start the first days.
      As I land in Denpasar in the late evening, I was thinking to take taxi directly to Tanah Lot, spend a night there, have a day of sight seeing and continue to Ubud. Would a day be enough? How should I travel to Ubud, by taxi or bus?
      Or would it be better to go directly to Ubud and take a daily tour from there to Tanah Lot?

    • Taxi or Bus trip from Makassar to Palu

      Makassar Apr 15, 2015 at 3:14 AM

      I'm thinking of a trip by taxi or bus from Makassar to Palu.
      I want to make a trip on the western coast. Since I wan'na avoid Lake Poso and its visinity, because I heard Lake Poso area is dangerous due to terrolists.

      If by taxi, what is good methods to pick up a reliable one ? How much is a normal cost ?
      How many hours does it take ? A rough figure is okay. Even if the cost is a bit higher, I wan'n choose a safer way.
      And I think the distance maybe 900Km. Do we need to make a stopover along the way ?

      If by bus, are there buses running through this rout - I mean along the western coast of the Slawesi Island ? Making a bus transfer is okay.
      Where is the bus terminai in Makassar ? And if you know, where is it in Palu ?

      I have heard about a direct mini-bus from Solo to Cemoro Lawang. Does it sound possible ? Is there a way to get more information about it ?
      I found a cheap flight from Yogyakarta to Surubaya : can it be a good alternative ?

      by Seanpai Online Now Nov 4, 2008 at 11:23 PM

      Hello,

      Need some advice. Am planning to spend 3 nights & 4 days in Central Java. Following is the plan:

      Day 1- Arrive in Solo. See sights around Solo & go to Ketep Pass in the afternoon to see Merapi & other volcanoes. Proceed to Borobudur. Stay at Manohara Hotel

      Day 2- See Borobudur & other two temples (Mendut & Pawon) and proceed to Dieng Plateau mid morning. See Gedung Songo temples & leave for Jogja in the evening.
      Stay at one of the hotels in Jogja.

      Day 3- See Jogja & Parambanan temple in the morning. Go to Solo & see Candi Ceto & Candi Sukuh in the afternoon. Stay in one of the hotels in Solo

      Day 4- See palaces in Solo & return.

      I'm planning to hire a car for the 4 days. Is this itinerary do-able? I'm not too sure of the distance between Borobudur & Gedung Songo temples (can this be covered in 8 hours)? Any advice or recommendation would help. Cheers.

      I plan to visit Borobudur and the surrounding temples in Feb'06 and plan to use Jogja as my base. Have already got complimentary Air Asia tickets to touch down at Solo airport. Heard that Jogja is about 60km from Solo. Is there a direct taxi service from Solo airport to city centre of Jogja?

      Accomodation should be around Jln. Malioboro. Would it be difficult to hire a driver and car for sightseeing purposes? What is the going rate for a day's rental?

      Many thanks in advance.
