      Kintamani or Ulun Danu Temple?

      Bali Mar 30, 2014 at 8:51 PM

      I will be in Ubud for 2 days. I have a plan for Goa Gajah at first. Then, I was planning to go for Ulun Danu Temple for a whole day. After seeing images of Kintamani, I am a bit confused. KIntamni seems to be more beautiful. Can you guys please help me decide.
      Or may be you can help me to know how to cover both.

      Also, please let me know whether there is any reliable travel agency you already know who can help me for this.

       

      Thanks,

      Public Swimming Pool in South Jakarta

      Jakarta Apr 14, 2014 at 12:23 AM

      I think I'm getting desperate in finding a swimming pool that suits my need near my place in Cipete

      - the one in arcadia is always crowded on weekends and quite spooky on weekday nights (and the bathrooms are rundown)
      - the one in talavera used dark natural stone tiling but only provide 1 underwater lamp so it's almost like swimming blind
      - the one in oktroi is quite ok but finding a parking space is stressing me out
      - the one in citos is also parking-space challenged
      (okay...I know I'm starting to sound like Ms.Nitpicky hahaha)

      Any other place you can recommend?
      I usually swim after office hours ( so after 6pm ) on weekdays
      Nothing fancy, just need decent changing rooms and easy parking.

      What choice do I have?

      Bali Apr 12, 2014 at 3:07 AM

      I am interested in a rafting tour in Bali.
      I am wondering what choice do I have?
      I was having a look at some websites.
      Now I am having the impression that 20 companies are doing the marketing for 2 or 3 tour operators.
      Preferably I would like to book at the tour company itself, and not a pricy website operated by an american company.

      How many boats are rafting down at Ayun river every day?
      In the marketing it looks like only one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
      And that cannot be true.
      I guess there are plenty of them going down the river.

      Hi,
      I will catch a flight from Lombok to Yogyakarta, but the only cheap fly (with Lion Air) arrive at 6h20 AM in Yogya. What can I do with my backpack (70 liter) until I can check in in my accommodation? I don’t have booking cause I want to see the room before taking it. Does anyone know a safe place where I can leave my backpack until I check in? Can I leave my backpack at the police station? Can I trust them? If so, is there a police station in town?
      Also, do you have a safe, clean and cheap accommodation to suggest? I’m on a budget and I saw rooms around 100 000-120 000 roupies, but there’s not much info about them on trip advisor.
      And last questions: which bus goes from the airport to town? And which street can I find most of the guesthouse, homestay or budget hotel?
      Thanks a lot!

    • About Bali

      Bali Apr 1, 2014 at 6:47 PM

      I'm looking to go to Bali in early June for 2 weeks & wondered where's the best area to be in - by the beach in a 4* or 5* hotel that we can visit places of interest from there or chill out some of the time as well? What are the MUST VISIT places in Bali & is there places to go out at night time - for a meal & or just a few drinks, all within walking distance of our hotel? We like to sample the local food & to try different restaurants over our holiday. I must point out that my husband & I are in our 50's when I asked the question. We do enjoy lively at night time, but not too wild -18-30s's. Does Bali have street food (like Thailand) that's safe & good to eat? We've had Indonesian food in UK & other countries before & it's delicious!!!! Is it cheap to eat out in Bali? Once there, is Bali good value?
      Thanks,

      What is the current situation in Poso and the surrounding area?

      South Sulawesi Province Aug 27, 2005 at 1:54 PM

      I am planning to travel from Ujung Padang up to Manado in October. Does anyone know what is the current situation in and around Poso? Is it safe to travel through this area? Are there any other trouble spots in Sulawesi which should be avoided?

      How can I get from Bangkok to Sulawesi?

      South Sulawesi Province Aug 16, 2005 at 6:42 AM

      Travelling from Bangkok to Sulawesi at the end of September. I have to be in Manado, Sulawesi by the middle of october, so will have about 10 days to do this journey. What might be the best way to do it, taking in a few sights along the way? Has anyone travelled on local sea craft (fishing boats etc) is this feasible? Thanks for your help.

      Pajalele, Sulawesi, Indonesia: Looking for info and photos

      Watampone Aug 1, 2005 at 8:45 AM

      I would appreciate any information on Pajalele and Watampone. I hope to visit there next year but these two places are mysteriously lacking any travel information on the Internet. I am sure one of you have been there :)

      Please write to me. Thanks.
