    • Contact details for Hotel Jati Asih?

      Soe Dec 18, 2014 at 3:41 PM

      Hello, I visited Soe 3 weeks ago (November 2014), and stayed at hotel Jati Asih. Pretty nice and cheap place, which was recommended on the Lonely Planet. The problem is that I forgot a camera in my room when I checked out. I've been desperately trying to get in touch with the hotel, but the number I have seems to be wrong, because I can't get through. The number I have is 038822407

      Can somebody please help?? I'm really sad to lose not just the camera but all my photos on the memory card... :-(

      Hi,
      I am going to Raja Ampat In about two weeks. I will arrive in Sorong next December 24, and i will spend 9 days staying in two different homestays. I have a few questions:

      I would like to stay in Batanta island; is there a public transport to get there?(I am travelling alone)

      Is it better to book the homestays in advance or is it easy to find a place when i get there?

      Do you know some good homestays on different island Which are possible to reach without spending a lot of money chartering a boat just for myself? (I would like a place with beach-front snorkeling)

      Thank you very much for your information

      Bye bye Alessandro

    • Airport layover

      Denpasar Dec 19, 2014 at 4:08 AM

      Hi there

      I have a flight from Dili Timor Leste to Bali on Sriwijaya Air and then i have a connecting flight to Jakarta in the afternoon like less than 2 hrs after landing

      I was wondering is it very quick process to let says get off the plane, pay the $35USD for Visa On arrival, get stamped into Indonesia, exit customs then find my way to DOMESTIC DEPARTURES where they probably gave me my Jakarta boarding pass in Dili and all whats left is to pay domestic departure tax and go through security as there is no need to exit Indonesia as this is a Domestic flight

      I am flying Sriwijaya Air so does this mean there is a seperate terminal at Bali airport for Domestic flights?

      Also how much do i pay for departure tax tax for a domestic flight

      I have never traveled to Bali Airport before as next week will be a huge challenge and I cant miss my flight to Jakarta as that means having to by another flight

      Hello
      I would deeply appreciate advice on the following:
      I’m planning a flight to Manado with my family (2 adults and 2 children 11yrs old) on April 2015.
      How much time do I have to consider when I land on Wednesday at 22:05 pm with international flight (Qatar Airways from Doha) at terminal 2 D in Jakarta to take a connection flight to Manado?
      I have check-in luggage and want to take local flight to Manado at 01:45 with Batik Air at terminal 3 but I don't know if 3:40 is enough time to get off from one flight, pass through immigration (I will get the Visa in advance in France, in order to gain some time) and check our luggage in Batik Air and board the plane.

      Many thanks in advance

      Hi all

      Need some quick responses as I'm trying to decide whether to visit Bali pre-Christmas till Boxing Day and need to book flights soon.

      1. What beach is good for snorkeling? I did some research and seems Blue Lagoon and Amed are good?

      2. The beaches that are good for snorkelling seem further away than the usual Kuta, Nusa Dua etc. How do I get there? Any idea of cost of driver and car hire? Is it possible to get a driver and car from the airport or do I have to pre-book?

      3. Is it a good idea to travel from this seemingly out of the way beach to Ubud?

      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?

      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!
