      We are not climbing and want to hike the waterfall and visit local villages. We have a reservation at Rinjani Lodge for 1 night but wondered if I should stay 2 nights. Is there enough to do if you are not a climber?

      Intertrips Tour Company

      Bali Oct 17, 2016 at 6:44 AM

      Anyone have any info or experience with the tour company Intertrips. Not much on line. They seem legit and a
      subsidiary of a much larger Chinese travel group. They are currently running some insane deals on travel to SE Asia and Bali with air, accommodations, transfers and a basic tour here and there but with mostly free days. Accommodations check out as good or better tourist class. We usually are independent travelers but these deals are hard to resist.

    • Leisure at Jakarta

      Jakarta Sep 30, 2016 at 4:49 AM

      Hi travellers,
      I'll be in Jakarta on 20 - 23 Oct. This trip is mainly for leisure & fun party. I really have no idea on how best to set the itinerary while in Jakarta.

      My questions:
      - Which is the best hotel to stay (close to most happening town & moderate cost)?
      - What is the best club or ktv or fun places to enjoy night life?
      - What other things to do in Jakarta that people should not missed when visit Jakarta i.e. Massage, etc.?
      - Any other ideas are most welcome and really appreciated. I will spend the time in Jakarta with my 3 best friends. But that shouldn't be all for a city that never visited before. So please give me some ideas.

      Thank you

    • Lake Toba, 4 months retreat, visa extensions and guesthouses

      Sumatra Sep 23, 2016 at 10:36 AM

      Hi, I wanted to do some meditation in a quietish place and Lake Toba looked good, but it seems Indonesia only gives 1 month visa so I would need to extend several times.
      Can anyone say if this is easy or possible at Pematangsiantar, or how convoluted the process is, multiple visits ?
      And could anyone recommend a budget clean place ?
      Thanks !

    • snorkeling and beautiful beach

      Lombok Oct 18, 2016 at 8:46 AM

      Looking for the best snorkeling experience and cannot decide between north gili and southwest gili. Also, looking for a beautiful beach for the last few days of our trip and wondered about selong balanak . We are traveling with our 3 adult children and saw Villa Atas which looks beautiful but only has 1 review. I am a little nervous about booking without knowing a little about the area. Any other advice for beach spots would be appreciated.

    • getting around canals and to floating markets

      by jubob66 Online Now Mar 3, 2011 at 1:50 AM

      I am wondering how easy it is to get a guide to take us in a boat around the canal system and to floating market. Would it be easy to arrange once in Banjarmasin or is it something that needs to be arranged before arrival. We are planning on being there for 2 days in July and would welcome any recommendations. Thank You.

      Going upstream from Banjarmasin

      by HaoleMan Online Now Oct 29, 2010 at 2:31 PM

      I have many questions, and would welcome contact with locals from the area. I am still doing my research, but it looks like I must go to Kalimantan! I am a diamond miner. I dig. I do not work for any company, only myself and the miners who chose to be partners with me. I am very good at what I do, but the diamond fields in Arkansas, USA, are used up.

      do the miners in Kalimantan still find good stones? Do they get good prices when selling? My buyers in USA pay from4-$20 a point [400-2,000 a carat] They want me to go to Kalimantan and dig the way we do in the USA. It is a very productive way to work.

      Are the mineral rights in the ground held by property owners or the Indonesian government? Will the local miners work with an American? I am not rich. I work very hard, and very smart. Is it difficult to get government work permits for an American?

      Are there many crocodiles in the rivers? Are there many poisonous snakes? Are the fish good to eat?

      Banjamarsin - have you been there?

      by sybille Online Now Sep 20, 2007 at 8:19 PM

      I would be interested in hearing from any member who has been to Banjamarsin. Did you use the town as a base for exploring further afield, did you go on day trips? Did you make your own arrangements or did you travel as part of an organised tour? Having read conflicting comments, I am trying to ge a feel for the place, as I would really like to spend some time in Kalimantan.
