    • 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!

      48 hours in Jakarta

      Jakarta Nov 11, 2015 at 7:19 AM

      Dear Jakrta VTers,

      I have a few questions I hope you can help me with.

      My girlfriend is going to Jakarta for a business trip in a couple of weeks and will stay in a swanky hotel in Jakarta Selatan. I might tag along with her, but she's going to be very busy with work so I'm likely to have to fend for myself. I'd like to ask for suggestions for a rough itinerary for 48 hours in Jakarta. I've seen a tip for the free city tour bus and might do that, but I am keen to know about other things I should do.

      I don't really like taking taxis if there is an alternative, but I gather the Jakarta public transportation isn't brilliant - is that right? I don't take motorbike taxis as a rule as I had a bad crash a few years back.

      I have basic Bahasa Melayu, and usually manage to get by as a tourist in Malaysia. Will that be OK in Jakarta?

      Finally, if anyone has any tips about vegetarian restaurants I should eat at, I'd be grateful to hear them.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Things to buy and where to get them

      Jakarta May 28, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      I'd like to get some crafts, I hear woodwork is a popular option, I have enough songket and batik items from Malaysia so I won't focus so much on that, although i will be getting some as well.

      I was thinking of getting some shadow puppets, wood boxes and carvings as gifts. Can someone give me an idea of what's available, common items and things to take home and buy as gifts, as well as where best to get them. I will be in Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. I'm still in the early stages of planning my itinerary so I haven't gotten around to the shopping part yet. I know there are plenty of malls in Indonesia, Jakarta especially but there don't seem to be all that many markets.

      I' ll be travelling to Jakarta on Sept 2014. I'm thinking whether we should find a local tour guide or explore by ourselves. May I know whether the attractions or interesting places are all located at central Jakarta? Is there convenient to walk around or may be take the public transport? If we want to travel far from the central, how do we find the relevant transport?

      Public Swimming Pool in South Jakarta

      Jakarta Apr 14, 2014 at 12:23 AM

      I think I'm getting desperate in finding a swimming pool that suits my need near my place in Cipete

      - the one in arcadia is always crowded on weekends and quite spooky on weekday nights (and the bathrooms are rundown)
      - the one in talavera used dark natural stone tiling but only provide 1 underwater lamp so it's almost like swimming blind
      - the one in oktroi is quite ok but finding a parking space is stressing me out
      - the one in citos is also parking-space challenged
      (okay...I know I'm starting to sound like Ms.Nitpicky hahaha)

      Any other place you can recommend?
      I usually swim after office hours ( so after 6pm ) on weekdays
      Nothing fancy, just need decent changing rooms and easy parking.

      So...I'm landing in Jakarta the day after tomorrow at around 8 pm, and I booked a hotel in north jakarta (close to jakarta utara, the hotel it's the Best Western Mangga Dua). I'm leaving the day after at 6 pm (intl. flight so have to be at the airport at 4,30 pm).
      Some people told me that it can take up to 3,4 hours from the airport to north jakarta, 'cause of the crazy heavy traffic.
      Is that true? I know it has heavy traffic but 3 or 4 hours seems like an exageration.
