Will I pay less for air tickets on-line in USA, that is, "onetravel.com" or waiting and going to travel agents in Asia; say Singapore, Saigon, Kuala Lumpur and/or Jakarta
Hi. I'll be in Jakarta on 10-12 May. This trip is mainly for the Aerosmith concert on the evening of 11th. So apart from that, I really have no idea what I should see or do in Jakarta.
- I'll stay at the Novotel Mangga Dua Hotel. I heard they're next to a shopping mall there, right? What kind of things would you buy from Jakarta?
- From Novotel to the Jakarta International Expo, I'm certain that I'll have to get there by taxi. But can anyone guess how long it's gonna take? So I can plan my schedule wisely.
- Any other ideas will be much welcome. I will spend some time by the pool in the hotel. But that shouldn't be all for a city and country I never visit before. So please give me some ideas.
Thank you from Thailand.
Dear travellers I have two hotels to choose from 1) Hotel 4 season 2)Hotel Mulia Selayan,I want to know that which one should be near to the city shopping centre beacuse most of the time I love to roam in the city shopping & sight seeing.
I will be getting married at the middle of December 2014 and I have already set a plan to travel to Maldives & Seychelles with my spouse for the honeymoon at the end of December 2014 for approximately 6 (six) days. I do fully understand that it is still far away to reach that date. However, I prefer to prepare that upcoming journey as early as possible in order to get the trip goes well as per the planning without any trouble. Thus, on this occasion I have some questions in regard of that travel plan:
1. I will do take-off from Jakarta. So, what is the finest itinerary for that upcoming trip (A: Jakarta-Seychelles-Maldives-Jakarta or B: Jakarta-Maldives-Seychelles-Jakarta) as we have to compromise with the availability of the flight schedule?.
2. Is there the direct flight from and to Jakarta for 2 (two) itinerary options as above (A & B)?. If unavailable (if transit is needed), what is the plane with its shortest flight hours for those options as above?.
3. What is the best Live Cooking Restaurant in Maldives and or Seychelles which serves the Mediterranean menus?.
4. What is the special and or necessary thing that I need to prepare for those destinations (Maldives & Seychelles) as I travel on that period (December)?.
Wishing I can get the answer from this forum and I really appreciate for the response.
Once again, thank you in advance for the sharing.
With My Best Regards,

Hi All, I come to Indonesia with my 3 kids (9yo 6yo and 1yo). Maybe I am different tourist because I skip Bali, Yogya and other places where many tourists come. I know, that Jakarta was in the past flooded, Indonesia is invaded by volcanoes or tornadoes. In my country we do not have such problems. Therefore I want my kids to understand that there are other people in the world who have many problems. I want them to meet real world. I want to show to my children how people live in Jakarta. Can you advise where in Jakarta can we go, we would like also to volunteer to some poor people. Where in Jakarta we can do it? And how?

Ok, I need to know why there is a plane broken in half and in complete wreckage right when you are taxiing off the runway at the Jakarta airport. I just landed here this afternoon and was shocked to see that sight. Is it just there for "show" because I think that is a terrible idea and a great way to terrify passengers. I'm a flight attendant myself and am so curious about this. I googled it and couldn't find anything. I believe the aircraft said Arabia or something similar on the fuselage but I'm not sure. Thanks all! Hoping someone can solve this mystery for me!! Lisa
