      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

    • 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.

      by hazirf Online Now Jul 6, 2007 at 9:58 PM

      How much will it cost to take taksi from the airport to Bkt. Tinggi. I had terrible experience with taksi in Indonesia. They tend to charge ridiculous price if they know you are not local.

      I am looking for the embroidery material/fabric in bulk. Where can i buy the material in Bkt. Tinggi with wholesale price? Where is the factory producing those nice embroidery fabric.

      Thank you very much!

      Trip to Bukittinggi in December

      by saa73 Online Now Nov 6, 2006 at 5:33 AM

      My wife and I will be visiting Bukittinggi next month (Dec 18-21) and would be grateful for advice on the following:

      i) Transport - is it at all possible/advisable to hire a self-drive car?
      ii) Taxi - Minangkabau airport to Bukittingi - what's the typical one-way cost? How long does it take from the airport to Bukittinggi?
      iii) Accommodation - the internet searches only comes up with Hotel Pusako or Novotel - this is OK for our budget. However, are there any unique/quaint guest houses that are clean and affordable? Perhaps something like an old colonial house, eg like in Camerons Highlands in Malaysia?

      Lastly - where can I sample the most awesome Minangkabau food in Bukittinggi/Padang. This is the main reason for coming over to the Minang highlands...and I must warn you, I am of Minangkabau descent and the best food is cooked by it has to be damn good!! (I love balado....where can I get the best??)

    • Good local guide

      by AndyDem Online Now Oct 15, 2004 at 1:13 AM

      We will be coming to Bukittinggi in January next year and will only have five days there (unfortunately!) Can anyone recommend an experienced local guide who can (1) take us on a tour of local sights and industries and (2) take us up Merapi? We don't speak very good Bahasa so some English would be helpful. And does anyone know if Merapi is safe to climb at the moment? Thanks for any suggestions/ advice.
