    • Rent a Car or Cancel It?

      Yogyakarta Aug 16, 2016 at 5:06 AM

      Hi All,
      I will start my first solo traveling on September to Yogyakarta. As I say it to my mom (yeah I am a 'little' on body girl) she called her friend to rent a car (with driver of course) named Semberani Jogja. It doesn't necessary I guess, because it doesn't support my target to solo traveling.

      Whether to go to Bali or Mauritius for Honeymoon in last week of November 2016 for 7 days?

      Bali Aug 11, 2016 at 11:21 AM

      I and my fiancee are planning to go for our honeymoon after a week of our marriage on 28th of November to a tropical Country for a week. we were considering Bali as a first preference and Mauritius as second. but most of the web search showed that it will be rainy weather in bali during that period but Mauritius was considered better in weather conditions. I'm still confused about the destination due to weather. we are looking for a relaxing and a cultural activities but without a good weather condition it can get ruined.

      Please help me decide what is the best place considering the weather conditions and activities and places we can discover during those 7 days.

      Trip to Bukittinggi in December

      Bukittinggi Nov 6, 2006 at 5:33 AM

      My wife and I will be visiting Bukittinggi next month (Dec 18-21) and would be grateful for advice on the following:

      i) Transport - is it at all possible/advisable to hire a self-drive car?
      ii) Taxi - Minangkabau airport to Bukittingi - what's the typical one-way cost? How long does it take from the airport to Bukittinggi?
      iii) Accommodation - the internet searches only comes up with Hotel Pusako or Novotel - this is OK for our budget. However, are there any unique/quaint guest houses that are clean and affordable? Perhaps something like an old colonial house, eg like in Camerons Highlands in Malaysia?

      Lastly - where can I sample the most awesome Minangkabau food in Bukittinggi/Padang. This is the main reason for coming over to the Minang highlands...and I must warn you, I am of Minangkabau descent and the best food is cooked by mother...so it has to be damn good!! (I love balado....where can I get the best??)
