  1. Dear Rachel,

    we would like to visit Indonesia. We will fly to Jakarta and stay there for 1 night and next day we would like to go to Yogya with train and stay there for 2 or 3 days and than fly to Bali and after Bali fly to Lombok.
    We would like to visit one thing in Jakarta. What do you think about travel with train (our family are 2 adults and 3 children – 15, 14 and 6 years). Can we go from Yogya to Bromo or is that too far away?
    Best regards from Slovenia (middle of Europe).

    1. Hi Spela, yes you can take the train from Jakarta to Yogyakarta, it would not be too far and the train is generally clean and a good ride. Then from there to go to Bromo is a little bit further and you may either arrange a car to get there or train to either Surabaya or Malang before getting land transport to Bromo. It does take up a day for each of the traveling.

  2. Hi Rachel,

    My wife and I would like to travel to Indonesia next year around end of June. We are very independent and don’t like to be “steer” around to much. Prefer I nice, cozy place at a beach that is NOT surrounded by big parties, vendors and noise. We like to explore and see interesting nature, eat at the local places and/or visit UNESCO sites. Let me know what area and beach would be best for this. Thanks.

    1. steer away from Kuta or Seminyak if you want to escape the crowds. There are many off the tourist track beaches, I personally liked Padang-padang beach but it is more of a surfer beach. Also check out Amed beach which is one of the secret finds for Bali.

    2. Hi Ernesto,

      For less crowded beautiful beach I would advise Lombok, Senggigi area. I stayed in place living Asia Resort which is not expensive but beautiful.
      In Lombok you can visit rice fields, water, rain forests and monkey forests.
      From there you can take a day or two trips to Gilli Trawangan island with pristine water. You can stay few days in Lombok and few days in Gilli.

      I loved my trip.

  3. Hi Rachel,

    We will be travelling to Bali between May and June for a week and staying at Ubud. Would like to visit Lombok so could you please, advise how I can travel from Ubud to Lombok.
    Thank you very much.

  4. Hi
    -Where can we find white sandy beach ?
    -I am confused where to stay, in kuta or nusa Dua or pasir putih, can anyone help? I’m looking for the best beach with white sand and clear water. So in which of the three places I should stay
    -is there any catamaran or ferry to community from one island to another ?

  5. I know all the beaches above are the best, but why don’t you try to include Pandawa Beach? Or is it just considered as a new beach? No offense. Thanks.

  6. I love Bali but lets be honest, the beaches aren’t great and you won’t find the picture perfect paradise here, go to the Maldives if you are looking for this. Bali has so much more to offer though, personally I find the interior of the island much more beautiful than the coast.

  7. Great adventure dear. Actually, I did not hear much about Lovina Beach and it was really spectacular. I’ve got another interesting story again. By the way, Your photos are really amazing!
