        Is it a good idea to visit Indonesia in january-february (weather)?

        Indonesia 1 hours ago

        Hello!
        I'm planning to travel in Indonesia in winter (Java, Sulawesi and maybe Moluccas), but more I check and more it seems impossible to travel there at that period because of the rainy season.

        But I'd still want to go there so I want to know a bit more how is the rainy season in this area. Is that violent and endless rainfalls all day long or more like intense yet scarce rainfalls with sun just after? Because to be honest I'd like to hike in some national parks with steep volcano trails and I'd like to practice snorkelling in Sulawesi. But I'm afraid just to deal with mud flats, leeches and turbid sea waters....

        Can you tell more me about january and february in Indonesia? Should I try or should I choose another destinations?

        Thank you in advance?

        A car rental question

        Europe 2 hours ago

        I know that if I rent a car in Europe with pickup and return in 2 different countries, there is likely to be a hefty drop-off fee. But if I rent a car in Barcelona, drive into France, and then return the car to Barcelona, is there any fee for that?

      • Driving from Airport to the City

        Edinburgh 4 hours ago

        Arrival June 2015

        If we pick up a rental car in the morning is there a good place to park near the western side of the city? I'm guessing parking then taking public transport is advisable. In hopes of doing so by around noon would there likely be time to visit some attractions in that area? Perhaps the castle if we're alert enough? G-g-grandparents were married in St. Cuthbert's so that's a must. Driving into the city proper seems unwise.

        We're staying in Musselburgh and would like to see something of Edinburgh before heading that way. The route looks quite straightforward but I wonder about late afternoon traffic. Should we wait until sometime after 6:00 PM to avoid rush hour? 

        Many thanks!

      • A trip from Trondheim

        Norway 17 hours ago

        I'm visiting my friend who lives in Trondheim next week! she has a car, and she suggested a few ideas -

        1. Atlanterhavsroad including Ålesund

        2. Helgelandscoast including Namsskogan Arctic wild zoo + Torghatten

        3. Lillehammer/Oslo including Hunderfossen familypark and Olympic centre

        4. Boattrip to Kristiansund

        5. Røros

        Personally I love the nature and beautiful views, I've been to Oslo before so I think suggestions number 1, 2 and 4 are the best... she suggests we spend one night in Alesund so we can have time there. She also has a cabin in Helgeland coast but she says we probably have to choose which place to stay... we have only 6.5 days... she also has a cabin at Nerskogen and she thinks we can stay there for a night and maybe could catch the northern light....

        This is her itinerary -

        Thursday 10.11 - We'll come around 16:00 so we'll spend the day in Trondheim

        11.11 - 9.00 Breakfast at Møllenberg bakery

        11.00 Check the city; Olav statue, Stiftsgården + Munkholmen

        12.00 Nidarosdomen

        13.00 Coffee/lunch at Bakklandet ? The street with old houses

        14.00 Festningen

        15.00 Ladestien walk + Sponhouse

        17.00 Dinner

        20.00 City evening

        12.11 - 08.30 Breakfast

        10.00 Theisendammen

        11.00 Shopping and hopefully farmers market

        12.00 What do you wish to do this day? --- I suggest that we take this day for a day trip

        13.11 - 9.00 Breakfast

        10.30 Orkanger ? check Bårdshaug Herregård

        13.00 Mountain trip ? Chasing Aurora Borealis

        14.11 - 9.00 Breakfast

        10.00 Dombås/ Hjerkinn (Close to Snøhetta) + checking for musk and small exploration of Norwegian nature

        15.11 and 16.11 - road trip to one of the places I wrote before, on the 16.11 we have to come in the evening to Trondheim again beause our flight is at 17.11 in the morning....

        What do you think, where is a must place to go? thanks for helping!!

        In Paul Bowles' "A Sheltering Sky" (with which I am working for a project) characters travel from Oran to Boussif by train.

        Is there, or has there ever been, such a service? I am having a difficult time finding a real-life reference to one. If there is or was a route, I am very keen to map it.

        Thank you for any help you could offer me. It's time sensitive.

        How is Javan rainy season in january-february?

        Java Yesterday

        Hello!
        I'm planning an Indonesian road trip for january-february and of course Java is an must-see! But I've heard also it is the rainy season at that time. But how does the rain fall at that period? Is it some kind of endless heavy rainfalls or more like unpredictable short rainfalls bursting in the middle of the day, quickly replaced by sun as I experienced in Borneo (Kota Kinabalu)?

        I've been in Bali in february. It was sometime a bit rainy but still bearable. Is it the same climate in Java?

        Thank you :)

        Is Sulawesi safe for travellers?

        Indonesia Nov 3, 2016 at 11:15 AM

        Hello!

        I'm interested for a long time to visit the island of Sulawesi. I know it's a diving paradise but I've heard there are apparently many social/racial/religious tenses. And I'd like to avoid any troubles. So is there any kind of problems I should be afraid of or is Sulawesi a nice spot to visit, despite some remote tensions that are not tourists concern?

        Plus I'd like to rent a car there if it's possible, because I know it's easier plus the island is huge. Is that possible? I mean the main roads look pretty fine so...

        About the infrastructures, is that easy to go on islands with ferries or to hike in some national parks, with maybe some agencies for example?

        Thank you in advance :)Hello!
