      I'm planning to visit Bromo volcano and my plan is catch a train from Banyuwangi at 22.00 that arrives at Probolinggo or Pasuruan at about 3.30h in the morning. Do you know if there are buses or taxis at that time to go to Cemara Lawang or Wonokitri? I think it's good to see the sunrise, but I'm not sure if I can find transportation from the train station to the volcano at that time. Can anyone help me?

      Munduk to Menjangan Island

      Bali Jul 5, 2014 at 1:48 PM

      Hi all,

      Do you think a day trip from Munduk to Menjangan is doable in one day? I read snorkeling there is best in the early morning (9 am?), and that the boat trip from Labuhan Lalang takes some 40 min to add to the driving time from Munduk. But I honestly have no idea how long it'd take to get to Labuhan Lalang from Munduk. Our accommodation is already booked in Munduk and we cannot change it for, say, Permuteran or Lovina.

      Second, can you recommend any organised snorkeling trip in particular (that includes the boat to Menjangan ofc)? I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the idea of snorkeling unattended as I hear currents in Bali can be quite strong.

      Thank you very much!

    • the prices in Batam

      Riau Province Jul 9, 2014 at 10:43 AM

      Hi! I am from a European country. My friend now lives in Palembang (South Sumatra). We plan to live in Batam for a few month. My friend got information about prices in Batam. I was shocked. I think that my friend got wrong information. Could you tell me, is it true?
      He found a dorm for us. There is one room for us and a bath and a kitchen for a few rooms. The price is 2.000.000 rupiah for the room + 500.000 rupiah for security + electricity. The total price is around 3.000.000 rupiah for the room per month! The dorm is located in Plamo Garden, Block B (south of batam Centre Area). Could you tell me, is it normal price for Batam?
      We will visit almost every day Sekolah Tinggi Teknik Ibnu Sina which is located in Nagoya Area. We will use city transport (bus). He told that one ticket costs 10.000 rupiah. We have to use two buses to come from Plamo Garden to STT Ibnu Sina. One person will spend 40.000 rupiah per day. So, one person will pay 1.000.000 rupiah per month for transportation. Is it true that we have to use two buses? Is it true that the price of one ticket in the bus is 10.000 rupiah? Could you tell me the shortest and cheapest way?
      He said that he has to get Batam citizenship card (identity card). The price of the card is 1.000.000 rupiah. Why so expensive? I could get the card for free in my country.
      Thank you!

      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

      Yogyakarta 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?

      Yogyakarta 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?

      Yogyakarta 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!
