    • Last 4 nights Uluwatu or Lombok?

      Bali Jan 5, 2017 at 7:28 AM

      I am travelling to Bali for 14 nights in June and I am seeking advice on where to visit and for how long.

      This is a loose plan so far however I am open to suggestions!

      4 nights Seminyak
      3 Nights Ubud
      3 Nights Gili T
      4 Nights either Lombok with a day trip to Uluwatu during our stay in Seminyak or 3 nights in Uluwatu and an extra night in Gili T with day trip to Lombok.

      In terms of what we are looking for on our trip, we are looking for a variety of things. We are a young couple and like going out and partying however we also want to do lots of cultural things as well and see some temples. We prefer to stay in five star hotels/villas and we have already chosen ones we like in Seminyak, Ubud and gili T.

      Ideally we would like at least one destination on our trip to include nice white sand beaches however we are not big water sports people so that is not mandatory. We have decided against Nusa Dua though as we want to experience more of what Bali has to offer rather than stay in a 5 star resort the whole time.

      I would also like to swim with turtles which I have heard you can do in Gili T and see some waterfalls which seem to be abundant on Lombok however I was wondering if this could be a day trip?

      I want to visit all of the above at some point during the trip however I am undecided on whether to do a day trip to Lombok when in Gili T and stay in Uluwatu for 3 nights or to visit Uluwatu for a day trip while in Seminyak and then stick with Lombok for 4 nights. My main concerns are how few and expensive the nice resorts are in uluwatu are (I am finding it difficult to find the right accommodation in terms of price, availability and service level) while I have found this to be easier on the north side of Lombok I am concerned about the travelling time staying in Lombok will add on to the trip and that the nice beaches seem to be much further south far from the hotels in the north?

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

      Travel Route

      Bali Dec 25, 2016 at 11:33 PM

      I have a thought on travel route in Bali (7nghts) and would like the experienced members to comment on the pro & cons
      ....Go direct from airport to Sanur and stay for two nights (leaving one case in local storage)
      Then travel to Ubud for two nights
      Then travel up onwards over hills to Lavina or Pemuteran (recommended by lonely planet) for two nights
      Then take west coast road back and stay in Seminyak for one night before collecting case & departure

      I am estimating travel time in car with driver, subject to traffic....are these correct?
      30mins from Sunur
      2.5 hrs from Ubud to Lavina
      3 hours from Pemuteran to Seminyak
      25mins Seminyak to Airport

      I look forward to your comments

      Is Lonely Planet Ebook worth buying?

      Bali Dec 22, 2016 at 10:00 PM

      Is lonely planet ebook on Bali worth buying and upto date?
      I head off in a few weeks and wanted to ask members if any had bought it and thought this ebook was a worth while addition for their trip?
      Will not go diving so don't need it on that front.
      While writing can members advise if Sanur is worth a two or three day visit .....current thought is to perhaps head straight there from flight arrival as it should only take 25mins with roads being quiet late at night.

      All thoughts welcome and appreciated

      Are there any 'backpacker' style people heading to the Islands?

      by RyanWales Online Now May 19, 2012 at 6:04 AM

      Hi all,

      I have read a little online about the 1000 islands and it seems to me that it's more of a resort style place..?

      Is there any cheap'ish accommodation to be found on any of the islands? I read that the ones furthest from Jakarta are nicest, is it possible to get a boat for relatively cheap then just find a room?

      Any info regarding the islands would be appreciated, just looking for a general heads up really.

      Thanks in advance Ryan

      by detris Online Now Jul 27, 2008 at 11:33 PM

      Yth. Virtual tourist,
      berikut pertanyaan2 saya:
      1. Bagaimana transportasi dari Jakarta ke pulau Seribu dan di sana nya?
      2. Kalau 2 orang yang bukan pasangan (tidak tidur satu kamar)sebaiknya menginap di mana (yang irit tapi tetap nyaman)?
      3. Apakah restoran di sana cukup ada pilihan makanan?
      4. Adakah paket wisata untuk turis dari Jakarta atau di pulau Seribu nya sendiri?

      Terima kasih atas perhatiannya dan saya tunggu jawaban Anda.

      Salam sejahtera,

      which island to visit for a romantic getaway?

      by pebs Online Now Jun 7, 2008 at 9:12 PM

      My hubby and I are planning a short & romantic getaway (2D1N), and we plan to visit Pulau Seribu (time doesnt permit us to go Bali). I browsed thru the thousand island website but still confused as to which island to visit. Any suggestion for the most romantic island on Pulau Seribu with clean beautiful beaches & a beach fronting accomodation? We dont dive/snorkel nor golf. Thanks

    • Pulau Seribu

      by Siswoyo Online Now May 24, 2004 at 9:45 PM

      I need to find out information on accomodation for the Thousand Islands (Pulau Seribu), off Jakarta in Indonesia. I am thinking of staying there with my husband (who is Indonesian), and my 2 daughters (who are 3 and 1) in November 2004. I need accomodation that will be suitable for children. I can't find any information on this on the internet. Can you help me? Cheers, Lisa
