    • Question regarding taxi and motorcycle ride in Jogja

      Yogyakarta Jul 11, 2016 at 6:00 PM

      Hi all, hope to get answers regarding taxi and motorcycle rental here:

      1) I am travel with an elderly and plan to visit Malioboro Street at night and stay there for around 30min to 1 hour. I plan to ask my hotel to call a taxi for me to go there. What is the best option to go back to hotel?

      2) I plan to rent a motorcycle and ride it to Borobudur temple. Is it safe to do so? Do I need to tell the motorcycle rental company that I am going to the temple instead of city driving? Do they provide helmet and documentation for motorcycle rental?

      Thank you all and hope these questions will be answered. Cheers!

    • Villa Rental in Bali

      Bali Jul 3, 2016 at 2:22 PM

      My travel group will be traveling to Bali in May 2017. We are running into Vat tax and Service charge in addition to the rental amount. Not at all concern about the vat due to the vat refund for tourist. Is the service charge a common practice? I think we may be working with a management company without our knowledge. Any clue how to get around these service fees. We are needing 30 rooms during our stay.

    • Thousand islands - Kepulauan Seribu + general travelling tips for Java

      Indonesia Jul 6, 2016 at 5:39 AM

      Hi! I am travelling to Indonesia with my two teenageboys(15 and 18)in the end of July, travelling to and from Jakarta. Totally we will stay for 17 days. The itinerary is not set yet, so please feel free to advise :-) The most important, is it worth spending one week at thousand island, or is it better to stay one week at Bali (or another place for beach life, snorkeling etc) The plan is to stay around Yogyakarta for about one week + one week on a island/beach. We do not like touristic places,we book mostly private accomodation through AirBnB, we like to see how local people live, eats where local eats, like to explore the nature, culture, do some hiking, biking etc. Hope to get some advise and ideas for where to go, where to stay, what to see and what to do :-) Thank you!

      I'm planning to travel from Manado to Palu by bus. I read in a travel guide book that it takes about 10 hours from Manado to Gorontalo, and 17 hours from Gorontalo to Palu.
      I want to know how frequently the buses operate in each of these sections, and where we can get the bus tickets and where the bus terminal is in Manado.

      My wife and myself will be going to Manado in early June.
      As a travel agency quoted us quite costly for 3 nights stay with half day sightseeing to Bunaken (we are not divers), 1 day to Minahasa and city tour as the package is only for two of us.
      Can someone advise if we can move around on our own to those above mentioned places ? Or is there tourist group we can join so the cost is cheaper ?

      Is there any other form of transport from Manado airport to the city center besides the metered taxis? I think the metered taxis will be exhorbitant.

      Also, what else is there to do in Manado if you're not game into diving & snorkelling? TQ

    • Bunaken and Manado versus Lombok + other questions

      by kosmo95 Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 2:29 AM

      I have been thinking of going to the Manado area for diving and some simple beach quiet time. Recently a friend who has been travelling in Indo for several montsh recommended I should just go to Lombok, that Bunaken is not worth the travel hassle (from Bali). Any opinions?

      I was really keen on Manado area as it seems less touristy, the diving is better, the beaches quieter, the prices more affordable.

      Also rumor has it that Murex has closed. Anybody aware of that?

      Finally another question: from reading forums, it seems that the beaches on Bunaken are not that nice, but that they are much better on Bangka, Gangga and Siladen. Nicer in terms of more swimming depth and nicer clean sand. Can anyone give any precision on this?

      Thanks!

      Dive operators/resorts in Manado

      Hi!

      My husband and i are planning to be in Manado during the first week of October this year and i need the following advice. Keeping in mind that we are divers -

      1. Where would be best for us to be be based - Bunaken, Lembeh or Manado?

      2. Can anyone suggest any nice resort that they have stayed in? We do not mind small local resorts as long as they are clean and have good basic facilities. We want to go moderately cheap...not cheap dumps though :-)

      3.Can anyone suggest any dive operators that they have dived with - all we want is well maintained equipment and if possible foreigner-owned joints.

      Thank you in advance for the information!

      Can anyone recommend a dive resort on Bunaken? I want to go diving there again but the place I stayed last time (MC Homestay) had bad food and bad service. They also tried to cheat us with the bill. I visited the other places on Pangasilang Beach and some looked OK, with bungalows of varying quality, but I would be interested to hear reports about places on Pantai Liang on the other side of Bunaken.

      Hi, My girlfriend and i are planning a trip i august to North-Sulawesi. We only
      have one month and plan to stay relatively long a few places and dive/relax.

      The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Denmark, says don't go to Poso, and we don't plan to. But they also writes about a potential risk of getting kidnapped by Philipinese terrorists? What's your oppinion about that risk? They don't warn about the Philipines? The same oppinion is posted ont the foreign affairs departments of the US, Australis, Canada and so on. To me it seems a political issue?! Whats your oppinion?

      Did anyone of you travel as a couple (man/woman)? I think about travelling in religious areas without being legally married, and do anyone had any issues as a woman traveller?

      General travel advises, on the Bunaken, Manado, Lembeh areas is warmly welcome! :)

      Cheers.
