    Travelling in Indonesia - if only... 

    I have questions for expats from Indonesia who now reside all over the world. Who will actually go back to Indonesia and stay in their city for the whole week?

    No, right? You want to travel. Travel is a necessities when you visit Indonesia - besides eating a lot of good food, of course. And freakishly, there's a lot of destinations to choose from.

    One thing I really miss when I'm in Indonesia is the absent of high tech travel tools.

    If I want to sneak in a couple of days to visit my friends in Jogjakarta or Bali, how do I plan the trip? Everything will goes back to be manual by phone call and phone book. Aaah.. the great big yellow book - you can kill a person with that. Transportation? Can I buy train tickets online? No, you have to go to the station to buy train tickets. Call them up first to check the schedule. Hmm.. maybe I should just pay a travel agent to do all the work for me.

    Also, Like Anthony Bourdain's hotel in No Reservation - Indonesia, how will I know about the hotel if they don't have the website? Yea, I want to be served kue putu in my room while overlooking the lake. Double-salivating. Does anyone know the name of that hotel?

    Actually Indonesians are pretty ok with online technologies. Blogs are like peanuts nowadays. But not businesses. They still have problems understanding how eCommerce works. A lot of the brick-and-mortar businesses haven't really adapted to online technologies as well as they do in United States.

    I'm so used to priceline and checking message boards for great deals in Vegas. Also, lately I've been checking this website - Hotels Combined - http://www.hotelscombined.com/. Yea, it's something like kayak.com, but strictly for hotels & have more selections. Well, they have good amount of Jakarta/Bali/Singapore hotels too... so it may come in handy when I'm in Jakarta. When I'm in Penang, I'll just let the Malaysian decide.

    But I can't go to new malls by checking routes in Google maps. Not to mention the GPS that has become my BFF lately is going to be rendered useless. Dunno if they have Jakarta/Bali/Singapore/Penang files for my Magellan, I doubt it though.

    Speaking of which, I want to go on cruises for honeymoon. Indonesia has so many destination for cruises, if only the ports were good enough for cruise ships, I would've take cruises to go to Indonesia instead of planes. Must be fun.
