I came to Ambon airport in early morning and wanted to get to island Banda, but the plane was already gone and next one alredy full booked. So I decided to hire a motorbike to get to Pantai Ora first. Using my basic bahasa I was able to rent a bike, but couldnt understand which way to go. Ojek Viktor... More

To be honest, we came to Ambon without any kind of plan and met Michael by chance just at the airport. He has his own desk in the arrival hall. In about 10 minutes, he drew us a map of Ambon, got us a room in his homestay and even a motorbike. The homestay is with his aunt Emma, right... More

Just a 10 minute walk from Ambon airport you'll find Michaels home stay. Michael works at the airport and he will show you the way and gives you all the travel information you need. The room is tiny but fine and Michaels mum makes the perfect nasi goreng.
