      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.

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.

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?

      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!

      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 ver¥ nice beach and if possible a pool.
      Every suggestion is welcome thanks

      Travel from Lombok to Bali (How?)

      Lombok Jan 15, 2012 at 12:55 AM

      Here are what I gathered:
      1. local ferry: cheap but takes 4-5 hours with possibility of overloading?
      2. fast ferry: takes 2 hours but cost USD65 from an agent
      3. flight: half an hour price around USD40

      If what I gathered is correct, I am more keen on taking the flight. Here are some domestic flights:
      Lion air: Guess this one is the best but flight time doesn't fit my schedule
      Wings air: google it but keeps linking to Lion air website?
      TRANS NUSA AIR & BATAVIA: not sure if reliable?

      Can anyone advise - Is this the most beautiful beaches in Lombok/Bali/Indonesia and do they live up to teh pictures you see online?

      Bali Vs Lombok

      Lombok Oct 20, 2010 at 6:30 AM

      Hi there all,

      Thanks to some great advice from members on this forum I have decided on heading to Indonesia for 3 weeks next August for my Honeymoon. I am looking for an idea of where to go what to see etc - I know there are lots of guide books but I always prefer advice from people who have actually experienced what they are talking about.

      Most important - what Island ....... there are only 17500 to choose from

      although I have seemed to narrow it down between Bali and Lombock

      So basically what we want to do when we get there is

      Spend a week in a beautiful tranquil beach location where we can relax but also perhaps take some surfing lessons or wind surfing etc scuba dive etc and of course some privacy.

      Then after 2 weeks having a tradtional back packing holiday - temples, enjoying the bali culture, food, trekking and perhaps Island hopping, perhaps visit a neighbouring island or staying in a couple of different places.

      Although its a honeymoon we both prefer holidays where we can see and do as much as possible so although were want a week of relaxation, we really want to have as diverse and varied experience of Indonesia as possible.

      All suggestions and advice will be greatly recieved. (the wilder the better) :)

      I'm travelling from Jogyakarta in July,want to visit Komodo island,but really can't get the way..I don't want to be trapped by the high prices of transportation.As I decided,I come to Mataram from Surabaya..then ..?budget hotel on WHICH beach?..then ferry..but from where? I mean may be I need to choose any other places,where from there is better way to Komodo?
      ps:I go from Jogja,not from Bali
      Thank You
