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

      Indonesia Nov 5, 2016 at 3:05 PM

      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?

      How is Javan rainy season in january-february?

      Java Nov 4, 2016 at 10:45 AM

      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 :)

    • Solo travel during Christmas - New Year period

      Bali Nov 7, 2016 at 4:47 AM

      I've (25, Male) been thinking of doing a quick solo trip to Bali at the end of this year. Basically would want to fly out of here (Melbourne) on the...— 02/01/2017...back in time for work/the new year

      I think I'm opting more for a relaxing period as I've been in Melbourne during this holiday period my whole life, being from Melbourne you can imagine the partying that would've been done.

      Ideally in my head it's...soak up the Sun all day every day I would be there, get to know Bali a bit more. Then night time I guess would speak for itself

      This would be me traveling solo for the first time
      -Is this an okay time to fly out?
      -Anyone here thinking of doing the same?
      -Is it possible to choose activities to do whilst I'm there, and not necessarily have to pre-plan/organise them here?
      -Anything you guys would suggest/advise/advise against?
      -Anything you may think I need to know, I'm all ears

      Thanks guys,

      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?

      January for 7 nights

      Bali Nov 3, 2016 at 9:59 AM

      Hi members
      I have an opportunity at short notice to visit Bali mid January for 7 nights while i appreciate it is rainy season
      I thought it was worth the visit as it is only a small extra fee from airline to stop off...... would you agree?
      if so is 7 nights too long should it be 5?
      next if staying where is the best location to be and of course where would i find a simple hotel (clean and tidy, fresh linen with good shower and breakfast). and suggestion of costs for basic hotel.
      here's hoping some members can help me with this decision (as has always been the case in the past :)

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.

      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
