Indonesian Trip Planning guidance

Jump to last reply

Hi there! I am going to Raja Amapat for a week in early June and I was planning to arrive a few days early to go to Bali.

I would arrive from the US in Jakarta on a Friday afternoon around 3:30. I would then take a domestic flight from Jakarta to Bali around 6 or 7 pm to arrive in Bali around 9 pm Friday evening.

My plan was to spend all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday in the Ubud area I am staying in Ubud. I know that is not a lot of time, but my main goal was to see a couple of temples, catch a dance performance and enjoy the countryside. I think I can accomplish this in the time I have.

I have to be in Sorong Monday to catch my transfer to resort in Raja Ampat

My question:

I could take a flight from Bali at 3:45 pm Sunday to get to Sorong, but that would cut my time in Bali.

My other option was to take a Sunday evening flight from Bali back to Jakarta, spend the night in Jakarta, then take the early morning flight to Sorong on Monday. This would give me a little more time in Bali, but I would have to find a hotel in Jakarta , which I am not looking forward to.

I was planning to do the second option, but I have a lot of concerns about the reliability of Indonesian domestic airlines, and getting a hotel at or close to the airport - and if that airport would be a clean and safe option for a solo female traveler.

Thoughts?
