TRAVEL ADVISORY - In the wake of the recent bombing of the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, the United States and Australian governments are strongly advising against all non-essential travel to Indonesia. There is an underlying expectation for attacks like this to continue...

UPDATE... - Was there in May/June before everyone got there. Bali was mellow,down. Seemed like Bomb took life out of people(not as much haggling and such), and cheap deals to be had!The Bounty is to be avoided. Felt like if any place is next... G-land 20guys,sumbawa25@Lakai's,and ulu's-padang a zoo as usual, but still not as bad as past years. Great time to go.They need the help.Citizens everywhere around the world generally are NOT a good representative of their governments policies. Remember Indo's do not even consider themselves Indonesian. Balianese,Sumatranese,Sumbawanese etc...There are good and bad people everywhere, higher concentrations just make the latter more noticeable. Sumbawa is NOW charging 10%tax. Just typical 3rd world stuff to deal with, same SH** different country, watch your money,Bring NEW bills ,pre-do Math in your head etc...

What, Mr. Eforaker? - What do you mean by: "And now with george bush and the funky bunch killing and maiming in the name of freedom (and imperialism)"? Did 'W' blow up Sari's? Would you prefer JI, Bin Laden, and Saddam? If so, they would forbid you to surf, I guarantee it. I'm not a huge fan of George Bush, but I'm not so naive to believe the terrorists are nice folks who want to embrace democracy, equal rights and surfing.
By been there done that
advice - Yea, go to ache, North Sumatera!!!
War sucks - i'm looking to go here and do a little trekking for as long as my money will last me,I wish nothing but to come here and surf these perfect waves and learn about this great place and it's interesting culture. I want to take nothing and leave nothing. I've been reading books on the culture and i want to try and blend in as much as possible but i am 6'2" with sun bleached hair and round eyes....so i'm guessing i might stick out as a westerner. And now with george bush and the funky bunch killing and maiming in the name of freedom (and imperialism) i'm worried that i might be judged as an american and not an individual. So has anybody been lately? Got any advice or experiences you'd like to share? thanks
Flights from London to Bali - Hi there folks,I am heading out in March and was wondering if anyone knew where the best place to get a flight to Bali would be? I have friends in Singapore so I will stop there and go into Sumatra but can't seem to find anyone that will give me a quote to stop off in Bali on my way to Sydney. Does anyone know how reliable Garuda are at the moment?When I eventually get there it will be be my 4th time in Bali - What a wonderful place and my deepest sympathy to the everyone affected by the bombing.

Re. Y.Y.B. - You write a good common sence advisory, give those guys some credit, and dont be such an arrogant shit! your advisory states how the world went, not how it goes!

Keep oarks out of elves land ! - Please have a look at WannaSurf Forum, Spots and Surf, "INDONESIAN travel advisory #1" and #1.2, posted on 16 september.It might help to have a better point of view on how the world goes.

Boom! - I saw that Bin Ladin had posted a message! Funny? Now the two most famous nightclubs in Kuta have been blown up! 180 people killed right in the centre of Kuta! I left two days before the blasts with good memories and many new friends. I had the waves of my life in Bali, I stayed in Kuta and it was great!! I'll try to go back next year! I think that people should. Just to show that terrorism won't prevail!I'm a surfer and I think Usama should try it! Maybe he will find a new meaning with life then? (And hopefully be eaten by a great white in Australia). Water is good!Keep surfin! /R
