      Volcanoe disruption

      Bali Aug 6, 2015 at 1:58 AM

      Hi hoping someone can give me a little advice and support. We are due to fly out to Hong Kong this Sat with Cathay Pacific and then on to Bali on the 11th Aug. Does anyone know if Dragonair flights are being affected by the volcano ash? I can see lots of info for Virgin and Jetstar from Australian travellers but not a lot for other airlines. Cathay Pacific have very generic info on their website. I really don't know what to do, beginning to worry about flying to HK and getting stuck there! Booked everything ourselves, although insurance does at least cover us for the ash.
      Hoping for a little friendly support to stop me panicking!
      Thanks Jeannette

    • 10 days in Bali (+ Lombok/Gilli) over Christmas / New Year

      Bali Aug 23, 2015 at 3:55 AM

      Hi all,

      I've spent quite a bit of time looking at suggested 10-day itineraries for Bali, but yet I still don't seem to have managed to find one that I feel works for me. I'm in Bali for 10 full days (11 nights), arriving on Christmas Eve and staying on until the 4th January. I will be arriving and departing from Denpasar

      I'm not a big beach-goer or into surfing, though having said that, I would still like to fit in a couple of days at a quiet, relaxing beach. I will be travelling alone, and am in my mid-twenties. I don't drink, so I'm not looking for parties/bars/wild nights. I'm interested in exploring the history and culture, with a bit of down-time thrown in. I'm interested in the local life, scenery, food and exploration - so spending days at a beach resort is not too appealing - though some relaxation time on an authentic local beach would be lovely. I would also like to try and fit in Lombok and a couple of nights on one of the Gili islands - though I get the feeling that this might be trying to cram in too much.

      At the moment, my rough itinerary is:

      24/12 EVENING ARRIVAL

      25/12 Bali (Ubud)

      26/12 Bali (Ubud)

      27/12 Bali (Ubud)

      28/12 Bali (Ubud)

      29/12 Lombok (Senggigi?)

      30/12 Lombok (Senggigi?)

      31/12 Gilli (Gilli T?)

      01/01 Gilli (Gilli T?)

      02/01 Bali (Sanur?)

      03/01 Bali (Sanur?)

      04/01 AFTERNOON DEPARTURE

      I would be ever so grateful if you could share some ideas on which areas might be best for me to visit/stay for each of the proposed stops - as well as let me know if the itinerary is realistic. I would like the trip to be as comfortable as possible (I'm not a backpacker/hostel type), though, having said that, I will be on a budget (perhaps 3-star). As my trip is over the festive season, do you think that the date allocation for each stop is appropriate or should I make changes to the order that I plan to make each stop? I would also like the order of the itinerary to be appropriate and practical for departing for the next stop on my trip.

      I have found that there are just so many variations and possible itineraries that cater for different interests, and I have just found it all very overwhelming, and not found a detailed itinerary that fully grabs me.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Effects of Volcanic Ash in the city

      Bali Aug 8, 2015 at 7:36 AM

      I wonder if someone who is now in Bali can provide an update on the pollution level as a result of the volcanic ash. There was a report on BBC - August 7, showing damage to local crops and the thick ash on the crops and the locals using face masks. Would it be advisable to bring face mask for people going there in the next few days? In the hotels does the ash cover the surfaces...beds, tables, etc.? Just wanted to know what kind of an experience it is at this time. Thank you.

      Visas, payments and money exchange

      Bali Aug 1, 2015 at 5:04 AM

      Hi hoping for some up to date advice...

      1) Am I correct that since June 2015 the visa-free policy is granted to foreign nationals of 30 additional countries and this now includes the UK so we will not now need to pay the US 35 dollar entry visa fee?

      2) Is there a charge for departing the country as I have also read that the departure tax should be included in flight price. I'm getting confused reading advice to other people, on different forums on other sites. Any up to date advice would be great.

      3) I know it is best to change to IDR there so would you take GBP travellers cheques or cash?

      Thanks JB

    • Three weeks in Bali 27th February and Alcohol

      Bali Aug 20, 2015 at 12:32 PM

      My wife and I are due to spend about 3 weeks in Bali. We are both aged related pensioners and my last visit to a Muslim country was many years ago where alcohol was and is still prohibited. Not wishing to offend but like to have a glass or two of wine, especially with meals, I ask for advice. Not wanting to stay in 5 star hotels but prefer small guest house. Are there such places, that serve alcohol as in reasonably priced; Gin and Tonics, and wine ?
      Are there off licences/ stores where wines are readily available ?
      Can anyone advise on the best area for us to get a taxi to from the airport, to find such a Guest House, private facilities and hopefully a sea view. We will already have spent two months travelling so cost must be considered. We look for a; peaceful, tranquil setting but reasonably central for a few day excursions and site seeing.

      Big Luggage Problem from Bali to Gili

      Lombok May 31, 2015 at 9:40 AM

      Hi,

      Is there anyone can offer solution where to store luggage?

      We are leaving from ubud, then planning to stay at gili air for 2 days then lombok for another 3 days then go back to our next destination at bali in seminyak area.

      Problem here, we have two large luggages which i am not sure if its gonna be great idea to carry it with the jetty to gili air ( We still can't find hotel we love to stay here, most of we preferred already fully booked). Travel with it to lombok and back to bali again

      I am thinking of few options, leaving it at our ubud resort ( Still waiting for their confirmation if they are willing to do this to hold our luggages for 5 days ).

      So we would love to hear your experiences here, what would be solution that makes more sense :)

      And thank you very much in advance

    • IS Lombok safe for foreigners

      Lombok Mar 26, 2015 at 3:38 AM

      There has been a rapid spread of the paramilitary criminal organization throughout Lombok in the past 2 years. These criminals are armed and dangerous, they wear full military uniforms and often use this to intimidate their victims althought they arealso not afraid to use their weapons including bush knives and pistols. This is a extremist paramilitary criminal organization run mainly by people from Bima (Sumbawa) , a well known breeding ground for Islamic extremists. IS LOMBOK SAFE FOR FOREIGN TOURISTS?

      Lombok Mar 10, 2014 at 7:13 PM

      Hi I am travelling to Lombok in May. My difficulty is being a first timer there is so much I want to see. Is it worthwhile travelling around the island and staying in different accommodation, or just doing day trips and basing myself in senneggi? I would like to see the waterfalls, do a couple of surfing lessons, go to spas and the markets, and do a horse ride on the beach. Would it be worthwhile hiring a car and going around the island? Anyone done this and can give me tips to stay, places to see? I will also be going to the gilis for a few days- is gili t the most worthwhile?
      Thanks!

      Lombok with a 1 year old

      Lombok Jan 26, 2014 at 9:27 AM

      Hi there!
      I will be traveling to Lombok with my family of 2 adults, 2 x 60year olds and a 1yr old baby. Is there any activity you would suggest for people who are not too mobile? We will be spending 3 nights there so we hope to get at least 1 day of activity outside the resort in Senggigi. Tetebatu sounds very nice but would it be advisable with a 1yr old? We will be renting a car with driver and I reckon my parents would be able to walk for 30mins or so but unable to do steep treks. We like to experience local food and culture and would be great to see some nice scenery.

      Any suggestions would be most welcome. :)

      Thank you!

      cheers,
      Red.

      Hi, I planned to stay two nights at Lombok in between Gili Air and the plain to Jakarta (back home).
      Since I didn't know about the new located airport I would stay somewhere around Senggigi. Easy and nearby travelling from the Gili's and to the airport (Mataram).
      Maybe it's better to find a new -even nicer place- to stay. How long is it travelling from the coast (near the gilis) to Kuta? In a decent way. Or should we still go for the Senggigi option. We are a family of 3 (daugther 13) and we like to have some relaxed last holiday days, and in a kind of luxury accomodation with a verĀ„ nice beach and if possible a pool.
      Every suggestion is welcome thanks
