    Lembeh at Present?

    As far as we know they all somehow make a living. Tourism never was the main economical activity at North Sulawesi. The fish industry is a much larger employer. But for many their income is much smaller than it used to be.

    Lembeh at Present?

    We live at our Divers Lodge Lembeh and would be able to serve guests. But most requests we get are for single persons who expect a huge discount. It seems they cannot understand that with one or two guests only it is impossible to give any discount on our already very reasonable rates. So...

    Travel to Indonesia

    Difficult to have an opinion with real data. 1 Numbers go down in the parts of the country where they test. Indeed there this wave seems to go down very much. But still hardly any testing in other parts. Many people do whatever they can to avoid being tested and/or vaccinated. My personal...

    Travel to Indonesia

    Th This graphics really means nothing. In many parts of Indonesia hardly anybody get tested. Many people get sick and stay at home, because they believe that you will die in the hospital. And when they die at home, nobody will test them as well. Unfortunately these are the same parts of the...

    INDONESIA - 2021 Cancellations Ahead, is your booking at risk?

    Michael Osterholm (see link above) gives a good overview on where we are now in our knowledge about the risks for children. My temporary opinion is that the vaccination rate should be much higher than it is now to even think about opening the schools again. My son (15) went yesterday to school...

    People do get sick here, often very sick or even die at home without being tested. Rumors have been spread widely that you only die if you go to a hospital. Over and over you hear: if you fall out of a coconut tree the doctor will say it is covid. But, because the numbers are going down slightly...

    The vaccination rate in Indonesia at the moment is 17% of the population older than 12. There is still a lot of Tuberculosis in Indonesia. Before the Covid pandemic daily 250 people died because of TB. 67% of the adult men smoke. Practically all children are passive smokers. I agree with Michael...

    For now foreigners are only allowed to enter Indonesia if they already have a staying permit. Further they need to be fully vaccinated. And if they enter, they have to stay 8 days in a hotel in Jakarta before they are allowed to travel further. If and when these rules will change can nobody say...
