      Diving with Mola Mola on Bali

      Bali May 18, 2015 at 12:42 AM

      Hello.

      I read several articls about Mola Mola fish and it seems there are only 2 places in the whole world, where there are high chances to see this fantastic, super ususual and rare fish: Galapagos islands and indonesian island Bali. Galapagos are too expensive for my budget, but Bal seems much more resaonable.

      I wonder, has anyone saw Mola Mola fish somewhere nearby Bali? I understand that sea is not an aquarium, but how often Mola Mola can be met there? Maybe someone knows any triks of how to attract it? Like the trip with a sound of a rumpling plastic bottle underwater that attracts sharks.

    • 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.

      Chao.

    • Speifics on Bromo

      Surabaya May 18, 2015 at 4:15 AM

      I've done my research on getting to Bromo or Cemoro Lawang from Surubaya now I'm looking for specifics for getting around the area. I'll be doing this independent of the tours and walking/hiking as much of it as I can so I'm trying to gather as much info on it as I can.

      I will try to get a room in Lava View or somewhere nearby, from there I would like to know how far it is to the viewpoint which from what I have read is on or near Mt. Pananjakan. The only review or blog post I've read which mentions the time says it's somewhere from 20-40 mins walk up there, not sure how accurate that is or if that's even from Cemoro Lawang area or some other point.

      From the viewpoint, how far is it back down to the entrance or the place where you pay the fee and then to the actual volcano itself?

      Any other vantage points or tips on getting around sand sea and the temple would also be appreciated.

       

      EDIT: I just read another post stating that the route the 4x4's take to the viewing area is different from the walking path, don't know if this is true or if there are clear markings along the way when I get there.

      Hi!

      Myself and a couple of friends are headed to Bali in two weeks. We would love to go to Mount Batur as well as the tegalalang rice plantations but we are staying in seminyak and have heard that it is quite far away. Does anyone have a driver to recommend and what are the rates usually?

      Same goes for Tanah Lot. We are planning to go there one evening and have been told it is better to hire a driver.

      Please advise! Thank you!

      Bali Apr 24, 2015 at 9:21 PM

      hi guys, can you suggest a trendy beachfront place to stay which caters to a younger crowd and is within a stones throw to bars, discos n restaurants. I'm not looking to break the bank but will settle for a decent 4-5 star such as hard rock sheraton etc. also please recommend which area I should choose to stay. I'm traveling solo n will be in Bali for about 5 nights. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello,
      I' m going to Sorong for dive-safari.
      And for my international flights and dates of safari fits only flights by Express airline company.
      Has anyone flown with this company?
      How I can get in touch with them (ask,because they do not have an online-booking system or even e-mail address on their site)???
      If you know any other good airline company, which flies from Manado to Sorong, please, tell about them.
      Thanks in advance! =))

      hotels in Sorong

      by sybille Online Now Aug 31, 2006 at 12:21 AM

      Has anyone been to Sorong and stayed there in a hotel or guesthouse. it needs to have western toilets and hot/cold shower. If the hotel also has a restaurant that would be cool, but is not necessary.

      I'd love to hear from you. Greetings from Cairns,Australia
