Why is it from one agent office to the other, the price ranging enormously? I donâ€™t understand Indonesian Tourism department. Either they are remotely poor English that every shop you encounter listed them as â€˜Tourist Informationâ€™ in-fact they are â€˜Tour Agentâ€™ the regular money grubbing machines (mislead on the get go) OR they just hating foreigner that no foreigner deserve the same treat as local. Whatâ€™s up with the hostility? To my Indonesian friends I do not hate you and this is not about you, this is about your fellow countrymen.
I choose to continue the last remaining days by tourist shuttle bus instead of local bus as before because its time consuming on a limited time I have, I heard some regular tourists were paying really cheap for the whole chosen itinerary. But only the time I switched my pace to regular tourist I got fucking ripped off.
You bloodsuckers just wait and see. When Iâ€™m back into my country and whenever I see any of you walk infront of me and breathing my oxygen, I donâ€™t ask for money I punch you in the face and kick your stinking ass. In the past week I didnâ€™t let getting ripped ruin my trip but itâ€™s getting out of hand.Probably the last time in the region, I do not want to travel in your country that bad.
Many times I pretended to be Indonesian which was working quit well getting similar treat but at the other time I couldnâ€™t be bothered adapting their accent and made a small talk.
And this part you will find some info..if any.
5 hours by ferry, I feel like 5 years I was stuck from PadangBai Bali ferry to Lombok port. Lombok the immediate east of Bali Island is just separated by Lombok Strait but worlds apart. Itâ€™s mellow version of Bali without the hundreds of Temples and women carrying tray of offering on the street. Lombok is looking conservative, deserted a slow pace Island life.
I love this islands where I donâ€™t need to struggle spotting local.
The 2-wheeled horse cart bringing scarf-covered local women and kids is enough to give me the impression.
