When to go:

Questions & Answers

Be the first to ask a question.

The entrance fees have various pricing i.e. foreigner, local rate, peak prices etc. It would be better that the customer pay on the spot depending on his/her nationality. Also, it will solve the refund issue if you choose not to go to the attraction when you are on the tour. 

As the price varies, it depends on your travel date and nationality. Typically, it will be another 1,000,000 rupiah per person for the attractions in this tour. 

We have included all that is needed except for :

  1. Entrance fees – 700,000- 1,200,000 rupiah per person
  2. Lunch and dinner – 50,000 rupiah per meal per person but depends on what you order and where you dine. 


The rest that is not covered will be your personal travel insurance, personal expenses like souvenirs etc

In general, the period between March till November are the best months to visit Indonesia. This is the period of the dry season. 

With that being said, we recommend customers not to be too bothered by it because you are only here for a few days , it is no guarantee that even if you come in the dry season, it won’t rain or it will always be rainy during the monsoon season. We believe alot is down to luck. December/August are still the peak period of tourist in Indonesia.

The prices are indicated above depending on the number of people. You can book directly online and pay using PayPal, Credit Card or Bank Transfer (including PayNow, PayLah etc.)
