indonesia/2 weeks/please help with itinerary

hello,

my husband & i plan to visit java and borneo at the end of may for 2 weeks.

we would like to spend 4 nites in ubud (hopefully @ 1 of the alam B&Bs, raft sungai ayung and bike the countryside, etc)

2 nites in yogyakarta to visit borobudur temple

3 nites on klotok seeing tanjung puting np

please advise on which tour groups/folks to contact.

also, would it be best to fly to jakarta, then go to yogyakarta (by train), on to bali (plane), then to pangkalan bun (plane?? can't find flights online), then back to jakarta?

OR:

fly to bali, then to pangkalan bun (again, can't find online flights), then to yogyakarta (flights unknown again/?) and back to bali.

thx so much.

Hi vegetarian,

My suggestion would be to fly into Denpasar, directly - if at all possible, and begin your trip from Bali.

If this isn't possible - not sure of the origin of your journey (US?) - Fly into Jakarta then Denpasar, Yogyakarta (train to Jakarta) and then return to Pangkalanbun ending back at Jakarta: so...

CGK>DPS>JOG>...rail...>CGK>PKN>CGK

Note that Kalstar flies to Pagkalanbun from Jakarta, here's the link: http://kalstaronline.com/ibe/search.asi

I hope this is of some assistance.

Cheers ツ

thank U very much.

we ended up postponing due to family illness so i will take Ur advice when we are able to travel again.

i am coming from the states. i found it difficult to book domestic flights on web from here (others had same pbm as i read).

do U think we should pay someone (group) or can we manage ourselves?

Airline service (the actual airline as well as the frequency of flights) can change often. At least that has been our experience with numerous trips throughout the years to various islands that make up Indonesia. While we never hesitate to book our own travel online as far as Jakarta, we use a reputable travel agent for all inter-island travel.

You can use this site to book domestic flights online, including flights to & from Pangkalan Bun:

http://www.ticketindonesia.info/en/index.php

Also, if you're going from Yogyakarta to Pangkalan Bun there are daily flights from Semarang, which is much closer to Yogyakarta than Jakarta. Then you can fly from Pangkalan Bun to Jakarta for your return flight to the US.

Yes, correctly Right.

Better from yogyakarta you go to Semarang then have a flight to Pangkalan Bun from Semarang. Once for daily flight. you can search your flight when you in yogyakarta, by this link : http://www.kalstaronline.com/

or http://www.trigana-air.com/

But prefer by Kalstar, more cheaper then trigana. And the plane is more better too.

And before to tanjung puting, you can arrange your trip during Pangkalan Bun to Tanjung Puting (returns) by Orangutan voyage. you can visit their website http://orangutanvoyage.com, they are so help fully my trips and also great in foods, people, klotok and etc. The guide also fluently in english, His name is Ancis.

Maybe thats all base on my experiences to Tanjung Puting. last weekend Hehehee
