    • 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!

    • West Kalimantan - Beaches and Islands

      West Kalimantan Province Jan 15, 2010 at 11:09 PM

      Hi guys
      We're heading into West Kalimantan for about 4 weeks and are trying to make up some kind of itinerary which involves both some inland forest time as well as a bit of a spell by the water.
      I'm having a bit of trouble finding any information in regards to beaches and islands though and was wondering if anyone could recommend somewhere nice, ideally with interesting snorkeling (I know East Kalimantan is much better for this, but we just don't have the time or funds to get across there as well!). The places we've come across are the karimata Islands, Pagatimun, Randayan Island or the beaches around Singkawang (Samudra or Pantai Pasir), but we haven't really been able to find much information on any of them. Has anyone been to any of these places and could give us a bit of an idea what they are like?
      Our makeshift itinerary at the moment is looking at including walks in Gungung Palung and/or Bukit Baka-bukit Raya, Singkawang and then potentially Ketapang and the Karimata Islands or Pagatimun. Does this sound achievable in 4 weeks or are we being a bit too ambitious?
      Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated. And the sooner the better, we are on a bus from Kuching into kalimantan tomorrow. Once again we have left our run a little late in regards to planning...!
      Cheers, Rowena

      Hi,

      I was in Pontianak years ago and am now planning a trip back. But I'm sure things have changed! I'd be very grateful if anybody could offer information on flights upriver to Putussibau. Also has anybody travelled from Jakarta to Pontianak by ferry? If so, how long does it take, what does it cost and what is the frequency?

      I'd be very grateful for any responses to mark@markeveleigh.com

      We are a group of 4 (or 5), planning to do a tourism research. We are four students and one mentor. Need info on:

      1. Nice but cheap accommodation (hotel, motel, boarding house, etc) to sleep and make small discussions.

      2. Good or excellent but unknown (not yet promoted) West Kalimantan tourist destinations. Please rate its uniqueness (1 to 10 scale).

      3. What's the safest time to go about the area?

      4. How can we thank you? I was thinking of giving you (whoever you are) a credit in our report. The final report will be in a seminar in Jakarta.
