Hi everyone! First of all thanks for reading my message!
My husband and me (31 and 29 years old) are going to Indonesia this October. The total length of our trip is 21 days. We know for sure that we want to spend one week in Mentawais (we will probably stay at the Aloita surf resort). Besides that we don't have any specific place that we want to go. I've heard so many incredible things about Indonesia that is hard to pick places to visit/stay. So I'd love to get some suggestions from people that have been there many times and especially from people who live there. I don't really like to go to touristic places and I sure prefer to meet local people, and go to places where locals hang out. I'd love to see some temples, go to a local yoga studio... And overall learn more about the Indonesian culture. My husband surfs but I don't. We both love the beach lifestyle (we are Brazilians living in California). So we would love to stay close to the beach! Also, some nightlife tips are always welcome! Thanks so much!!!
Wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to what to bring with me with regards to clothing for Java this time of year. We'll be in Java traveling from Jakarta to Ubud...about 2 weeks. Also, would an insect repellant of 30% Deet be enough protection?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
I am wondering if there is anywhere in Ubud, or anywhere else in Bali where these wood carvers take on apprentices. I am amazed at the beauty of the wood sculpture I see from Bali, and especially Ubud, and I am hoping that there is some way that I can train/study under a woodcarver, whether formally or informally, for at least a year. But any help with any specifics about any carving courses would be appreciated. But I am hoping to find a carver who will be kind enough to take me on as a pupil/apprentice.
Hi, will be visiting Yogyakarta on June16-18 but june17th will be our only full day. Will be doing a sunrise tour of Borobodur that day and for the rest of the day it's either we do the Merapi 4WD tour or Caving in Jomblang. I've seen photos of Jomblang with the sunlight passing through and it's just amazing. However, Merapi by 4WD looks interesting also. Please help me decide which one to choose!
I am looking for some advice regarding how best for me and my girlfriend to get around Java in July. We land in Jakarta and will be travelling through Java and ending up in Bali (just started looking at the route but thinking of a lot of places, for example the first part of the route we'll go through Bogor, Cipanas, Bandung, Garut, Kampung Naga and Panagdaran and we know we want to visit Yogyakarta). We have about 9 days to get to Bali so will not have time to stay over in each of the places..
The question is what's the best way to travel? We want to maintain flexibility as our route/timings won't be exactly planned out. Options I'm thinking of are 1) hire a car with sat nav but is it safe in terms of road quality and car jacking type issues, 2) hire a car with sat nav and driver, but this is a long trip so is this possible, how would it work for the driver's accommodation etc. and can it be booked in advance, 3) use taxis as and when we need to travel but I guess this would be an expensive option and are taxis easy to get hold of across Java, or 4) any better ideas?
Any advice much appreciated.
Hi, I was planning a day trip with my friends. We are 5-6 girls from Singapore and will return back with the evening ferry. It would be great if some one could advise me on the following questions:
1. Is Bintan safe for women travellers?
2. What activities can be done throughout day?
3. Best way to commute accross island?
I'm looking for info on the Flores and Komodo Island , I will be in Bali in January (wet season) and I'm thinking of traveling to Flores.
1. Whats the weather like in January
2.Option on getting to Flores from Bali
I travel on a budget / backpacker
i have heard of Indonesian and Balinese massage, is there massage parlous in Yogyakartha .
How many days is sufficient for basic touring and shopping ?
Where would you recommend if I were to do some sort of crash course to learn the bahasa? I've been to Indonesia a couple times, in some instances to less frequented places where I had problems getting through with English only.
I know I'm not good at learning languages from books or on the computer, so can anyone recommend a school whatsoever where I could learn interacting with a small group or class. I can pay something for it if it's not too expensive.
