      Diving with Mola Mola on Bali

      Bali May 18, 2015 at 12:42 AM

      Hello.

      I read several articls about Mola Mola fish and it seems there are only 2 places in the whole world, where there are high chances to see this fantastic, super ususual and rare fish: Galapagos islands and indonesian island Bali. Galapagos are too expensive for my budget, but Bal seems much more resaonable.

      I wonder, has anyone saw Mola Mola fish somewhere nearby Bali? I understand that sea is not an aquarium, but how often Mola Mola can be met there? Maybe someone knows any triks of how to attract it? Like the trip with a sound of a rumpling plastic bottle underwater that attracts sharks.

    • Transportation in Ternate Island

      Ternate Apr 30, 2015 at 12:31 AM

      I'm going to Ternate Island in the coming July.

      (1) Can we pick up ojek or a taxi at the airport in order to go to some downtown area ?
      (2) If we wanna use a taxi in a town, can we find one on the street ?
      (3) If we wanna rent a taxi for one day excurtion - say, 8 hours - how much will it be ? A rough idea is okay.

      Chao.

    • Speifics on Bromo

      Surabaya May 18, 2015 at 4:15 AM

      I've done my research on getting to Bromo or Cemoro Lawang from Surubaya now I'm looking for specifics for getting around the area. I'll be doing this independent of the tours and walking/hiking as much of it as I can so I'm trying to gather as much info on it as I can.

      I will try to get a room in Lava View or somewhere nearby, from there I would like to know how far it is to the viewpoint which from what I have read is on or near Mt. Pananjakan. The only review or blog post I've read which mentions the time says it's somewhere from 20-40 mins walk up there, not sure how accurate that is or if that's even from Cemoro Lawang area or some other point.

      From the viewpoint, how far is it back down to the entrance or the place where you pay the fee and then to the actual volcano itself?

      Any other vantage points or tips on getting around sand sea and the temple would also be appreciated.

       

      EDIT: I just read another post stating that the route the 4x4's take to the viewing area is different from the walking path, don't know if this is true or if there are clear markings along the way when I get there.

      26/9 - visit Solo and return to Yogi, sleep at Manohara in Borobudur
      27/9 - Borobudur temples and surroundings, sleep in Prambanam

      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!

      3 days 2 night itinerary and driver in Yogyakarta and Burobudur

      by phingy Online Now Mar 12, 2014 at 1:47 AM

      Hello all!

      My friend and I are planning a 3 days 2 nights trip to Yogya and Burobudur. We likw culture and history and have planned the itinerary as follows:

      Day 1
      Arrive in Yogya airport 1pm
      Lunch in Yogya
      Prambanan
      Ratu Boko (is it worth going?)
      Check in hotel (appx 10-15 drive from Burobudur)

      Day 2
      Burobudur Sunrise Tour
      Burobudor whole day
      Lunch and dinner at nearby hotels (walkable from the monument)

      Day 3
      Check out hotel after breakfast
      Drive to Yogya
      Lunch in Yogya
      Souvenir shopping

      I have contacted a few drivers and received quotation of appx 350k to 450k rupiah for each day (Day 1 and 3). Is this price reasonable? What is the usual price for car and driver hire? Essentially I only need the driver for about 6-7 hours per day but it seemed that the price quoted is for a full day trip?

      Appreciate any advise or further suggestions!

      Thanks!

      From Yogyakarta to Borobodur at 5 AM?

      by matjung Online Now Feb 1, 2014 at 10:14 AM

      Hi, I am not sure if it is a good idea, but I was thinking about traveling by night traing from Jakarta to Yogyakarta.
      If I am not mistaken then there is a train available that leaves Jakarta at 9 PM and arrives Yogjakarta at 4.22 AM.
      I was wondering, what on earth shall I do in yogjakarta at this time of the day?
      Then I came up with the idea of visiting Borobodur before Sunrise.
      Is this a rather stupid idea?
      Are luggage lockers available in Yogjakarta?
      Are any early morning tours available?
      Or should I take a taxi?
      How much time does it take from Yogjakarta to Borobodur?
      Is a closer train station available?
      Is there an early morning service in the temple available?

      How much is the appropriate charge to hire a taxi?

      by nano036 Online Now Oct 5, 2013 at 8:00 PM

      Hi, this is my first question about barobudur-prambanan.\

      I would like to go to Yogyakarta next year, maybe from late January to early February.
      I will travel alone and would like to find travelers to visit barobudur-prambanan together, but just in case, I would like to know how much the appropriate charge for hiring taxi for one day or a half day.

      Here is my plan
      Day 1 Fly from Jakarta by Lcc, use a taxi to the guesthouse.

      How much is the charge from the airport to downtown?

      Day2 Hire a taxi to visit barobudur-prambanan , I will arrange a taxi at a gueshouse

      I would like to know the charge.

      Day3 Walk around downtown or go to a famous place, sorry I didn't research yet!

      So give me some advice!

      Day4 Back to Jakarta by Lcc

      I would like to join the tour from Jakarta but it is very expensive around 700 US dollar for 2days 1nigt, because the tour I found is basiclly for 2 ppl at the same hotel room or guesthouse.

      Moreover I am Japanese and some ppl advise me not to use Japanese agency due to higher price than others.

      Do you know a reasonable agency in Yogyakarta or can I arrange private tour with Taxi driver or bike rider at a guesthouse?

      If you helped me, it would be wonderful!
