DKI Jakarta, Indonesia
hello, i am taking a trip from july 5th till august 13th from bangkok to denpasar, bali, all by land. any suggestions on routes and sights?
Dear Eric... I am trying to give a suggestion for your trip and will give you an update for any information that i collect in the future for your trip. -From thailand to Indonesia, you can travel to : -Malaysia and take a ferry to Dumai (Riau, Sumatera Island, Indonesia). -Port Klang (Malaysia) to Dumai (Riau). -Singapore and take a ferry to Batam; -Take a ferry from Batam to Dumai (Riau). -From Dumai to Jakarta, you can take a bus. -From Jakarta to Denpasar by land, there are 2 options as follows : a. By bus, from Jakarta to Denpasar (direct); or b. By train, from Jakarta to Surabaya; By bus, from Surabaya to Denpasar; or By train from Surabaya to Banyuwangi and from Banyuwangi to Denpasar by Bus (there is a train and bus package from Surabaya to Denpasar, while buy a train ticket). The train's name is Mutiara Timur. -Consideration : -Since from jakarta to denpasar by bus take around 24 - 27 hours, it's better for you to use a train. Questions : -Are you planning to spend a night in Jakarta (after arriving from Batam)? -Are you planning to stop by in a several city (in the middle from jakarta to denpasar) or direct to denpasar? -As an option, you can stop by to : -Yogyakarta (Central Java) and visit Borobudur Temple (one of the seven wonders) or -Semarang (Central Java) and take a ferry to Karimun Jawa island; or -Mount Bromo (in East Java). about 8 years ago
Can I travel from Bali (Denpasar) to Balikpapan in Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia? Or do I need to fly?
Dear Kimmy, please allow me to help for an answer. Since Denpasar (Bali Island) and Balikpapan (Borneo Island) was located in a different island and were separated by the sea which wider than between Bali Island and Java Island (which from bali to java, we can travel by bus), there is not possible for you to travel from Denpasar to Balikpapan not by the plane. There are several air service from Denpasar to Balikpapan. Hope my answer can help you a little bit.. Robby about 8 years ago
