    Lombok and Bali Trip Oct - Nov 2021

    For now the quarantine will be extended to 10 days. Everybody can have an opinion, but nobody has the data to base these opinions upon. We all know more within 3 weeks.

    Info HALMAHERA - Best resort? Better or worse than Raja Ampat?

    Raja Ampat was hardly mentioned 25 years ago when I was guiding groups there. This did not mean that the diving was not amazing already. Halmahera has execellent dive spots. Personally I think that diving around the Island of Rao near Morotai easily can compete with the best places of Raja...

    Lombok and Bali Trip Oct - Nov 2021

    Do you really think that so many people are dying because of the economical damage by this pandemic? Where did you find this information? Further, I guess you mean that for the total of Indonesia the income from tourism is less than 5%? Bali was until 2020 highly depending on foreign tourism...

    Fully vaccinated could mean by then 3 shots (2 when J&J). March could mean that Indonesia is in the full next wave. Or maybe your planned trip will be great. Which we all of course wish you.The current situation showes how unpredictable this pandemic is.

    We cannot know yet Dan. The above comment of you seems to be correct with what we know now. However, what will the protection 1 year after being vaccinated for example? People are talking about trips somewhere next year. For most of them the last shot will be longer than 8 months ago by then...

    Travel to Indonesia

    Looking at the the current situation in Europe I understand one thing. As Micheal Osterholm said, this pandemic teaches us humility. It is sort of funny to read through the discussions of the last 18 months about Indonesia, tourism and Covid-19. How wrong we all have been most of the time. The...

    Travel to Indonesia

    Probably you mean West Papua, which is a province of Indonesia. Such as Papua is as well. West Papua (province) - Wikipedia . Definitely much safer than the USA, if you look at the numbers. However, I would still be very flexible in your expectations if your plan is for the coming February. At...

    Raja Ampat Liveaboard vs Misool

    No problem for me at all if people from abroad want to come here. Would be great for us. I tried to explain that it is not only about the risk that you might infect somebody here or get sick yourself. As it looks now, these risks are small indeed. But traveling international while this pandemic...

    Raja Ampat Liveaboard vs Misool

    This is quite something to say: "Don’t worry too much about COVID-19. If you have been vaccinated and follow the protocol, you’ll be fine." At the moment 81 million of the Indonesian population of 277 million has been vaccinated with two shots. Mostly with Sinovac. Nobody knows in how far the...

    The answer to your question might be in the same article: the most practical way is to scrap unprofitable flights and refocus on lucrative routes, Kartiko said. The airline will fly 140 routes next year, in comparison to 237 routes in 2019.

    Where to Go (and when)

    Lembeh is good the whole year. But if you pick April-May, you should also mention October - November.

    Where to Go (and when)

    By the time Indonesia will be fully open again it will be different than it was in 2019. Some old resorts and boats will be out of business and, maybe, some new will start. Places which have been often too crowded, will be very quiet for the first years. Very few businesses have been able to...

    I do not what the situation is at Misool. But in general there must be a reservoir of postponed reservations by people who already partly or fully paid in advance. I guess that many resorts adjusted their reservation policy. Maybe only ask for a small refundable deposit now. This could have the...
