A Solitary Beach in West Kalimantan, Indonesia

Ketapang, an Indonesian hidden gem, is located just south of Pontianak, the capital of West Kalimantan. I was personally delighted to visit Ketapang last Christmas and my visit brought back many sweet memories. As you may not know, I was born in Ketapang but my family moved to Jakarta when I was just 1 year old. So, to be able to visit the place where I was born was a fantastic experience. And I can tell you for sure that Ketapang is worth the visit.
There are two ways to get to Ketapang: by air or by sea. Supadio airport in Pontianak serves weekly flights to Ketapang. Or, if you prefer, you can also take an express boat, which is considerably a longer trip. One thing that I first noticed when I arrived in Ketapang was that there were many swallow birds flying freely. Harvesting Swallow's nest (a Chinese cuisine delicacy) is a very popular business here.
So, if you are an aggressive businessman who likes to seize every opportunity, visiting Ketapang can be worthwhile.
The highlight of my trip was "Pagatimun," a hidden beach that offers tranquility & solitude. The beach is approximately 1.2 hours drive from Ketapang. It goes deep to an area that is hardly touched by tourists or travelers, even the locals themselves. The sound of the waves breaking was as calming as the sound of stars above. Pagatimun offers serenity that you may not find anywhere in the world.
On my way back from Ketapang, I decided to stay for a couple of days in Pontianak. Pontianak, "Kota Khatulistiwa" or Equator City, is the place to visit to experience wonderful culinary creations. It is called "Kota Khatulistiwa" because the city is located precisely on the equator line.
Many travelers transit here before their long journey deep into jungles of Kalimantan via the Kapuas River. There are, however, many other attractions here that you may want to explore. Places to visit and attractions in Pontianak are coming soon as we launch our informativesite.
Interesting fact
The name "Pontianak" comes from a folklore. It is said that Pontianak means "pregnant with child" and she was the ghost that haunted the first group who arrived in the uninhabited area of Pontianak.

Eating out in Bali, Travel Video Guide

I wander the narrow lanes away from the tourist strip restaurants of Kuta to find meals half the price. I order a Nasi Goreng (fried rice) and Mango Juice which cost me less than AUD. I speak with owner Dewik about meal options for vegetarians. Thanks to Dewik of Sapo Laish 1, Jl. Batu Pageh Legian Kelot, Kuta

Bali’s temples, carved statues, and colorful art are evidence of a thriving culture that maintains its freshness and simplicity in a modern age. Bali: A Travel Adventure is an unforgettable visual record of the island and its people.
Periplus Guide to Bali: The Island of the Gods

“Periplus Guide to Bali: The Island of the Gods” is a good quality guide book for those who travel to Bali not just to lie on a beach or surf, but also for its amazingcultural and historical heritage, where every village and temple have their own story.
You will not see “places to shop” or “places to stay” in this book. “Periplus Guide to Bali: The Island of the Gods” is a book for people who want to feel in a new place not like stupid foreigners but rather informed observers, understanding the Bali’s performances, rituals, and the lifestyle. The book gives you the background you need to decide what you want to see and where you want to go in Bali. The writing is clear, informed, highly opinionated in a “been there done that” in a sort of way.

Extras include advice on where to dive, how to arrange treks up the island’s volcanoes and the top surf breaks. The Rough Guide to Bali & Lombok gives you all the practical advice you’ll need for a great adventure.

I discuss the two types of massages available in Bali. It is important for men in particular to be aware of this so as not to lead to misunderstanding. There is a traditional massage which one can usually get in beauty salons, and there is the complete massage, which usually finishes with a happy ending! These complete massages are usually offered by women not working in beauty salons, but just working the street, renting a small room. The cost of a traditional massage is very reasonable, about -5 AUD for an hour. The cost for a happy ending massage you will have to investigate yourself!

Bunaken Sunset

At the Kima Bajo resort near the Bunaken Marine Park outside Manado on Sulawesi in Indonesia. Every day when we came down to the beach to see the sunset it was a surreal experience. Besides most of the sunset being spectacular (this one was kind of tame compared to others) with brilliant colors, a volcano rising from the sea in the distance (Manado Tua), just a few fishing boats in the bay going out for their nightly catch, there was also the hypnotic chanting blaring from louspeakers at the mosque in the nearby village. Really a gorgeous and trippy experience every evening.

Shopping in Kuta, Aussie Culture gone wild! Bali Travel Video Guide

Wandering the shops of Poppies Lane 1 and 2, it is interesting to see how Australian culture has influenced what is available for sale. Crass t-shirts and stickers adorn the walls. I purchase a Bintang Beer singlet, essential uniform for every Aussie yobbo.

I plan on filming a night out in the Kuta Beach tourism precinct but instead meet some Australians running a local bar and settle in to learn about visa requirements for expats. Australians over 65 get a special 12 month visa which means many stay in Bali in order to stretch the value of their pensions. I also film the common Kuta species, Australis Drunkis Yobbois, which flys to bali from Australia in large packs in the summer months. It is known for it's loud call and colorful tattoo plumage.

The charming Kraton Ratu Boko is different compared to many other heritage sites around Java. This place is more like a ruin than any other surrounding temples. For more info on Kraton Raut Boko, Indonesia, visit: "..Kraton Ratu Boku was build during the reign of a descendant of the Sailendra dynasty -- one of the most powerful kingdoms on ancient Java. Exactly when the Ratu Boko was built is difficult to say, as the ancient Javanese didn't write any formal documentation. However, inscriptions mention Ratu Boko being occupied as early as in the 8th century. The exact purpose of Ratu Boko is also hard to say. Some different theories have evolved, the most recognized one being that Ratu Boko was in fact a fortified monastery."

"Semarang, Java, Indonesia" Bowtie's photos around Semarang, Indonesia (hotel surya (semerang))

Preview of Bowtie's blog at TravelPod. Read the full blog here: This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Semarang, Indonesia Entry Title: "Semarang, Java, Indonesia" Entry: "Arrived in Semarang yesterday around 1 pm Took the executive train (Argo Anggrek) from Surabaya Pasar Turi train station at 8 am. I had to pay the full fare to Jakarta which was 440000. Was in executive class and was problem free. The AC in Indonesia is very different than in Malaysia. I found the AC in buses and boats to be at the freezing mark in Malaysia whereas in Indonesia they seem to keep them so that they are still blowing warm air!!!!! Relying on Lonely Planet, I took a taxi from the train station to Hotel Surya (Jl Imam Bonjol 28 Tel: 3540355) in Semarang. The room seemed fine and more or less clean!!! (Everything clean except the walls!!) and the price for a deluxe (not really deluxe but bigger window!!!) is 280 incl. breakfast. Again because it seemed reasonable I took it, put my luggage in the room and then went out exploring the old City of Semarang. Right beside Johar Pasar (Traditional market of Semarang) I stopped at the Metro Hotel (JL Hai Agus Salim 2-4 ( e-mail and I was quite impressed with both the room and the price .

It should be back to normal crazy next week. Since the traffic was so light, our friend Cynthia organized a tour with her friend Amir who is a local historian. Early, the first morning we met our guide and Cynthia's sister and friends at Starbucks for a little breakfast, then we were off. First stop was the fish market, a dizzying maze of shacks and ramshackle "piers" and "docks" with people selling everything from musical instruments to wire to dried fish and even a lizard. As you would expect, there were cats everywhere napping in the sun or hiding in the shadows. Men were lazily lounging in the heat. A pudgy little baby was giggling in his brother's hands.

Blissful Bali yoga retreats

Any activity done in the right surrounding gives the utmost benefit. If you are studying, you can concentrate only if the surrounding is peaceful. Imagine studying in a cafeteria or restaurant. It’s difficult, isn’t it?? Similarly when it comes to exercise, it also has to be in appropriate surroundings for utmost benefits. For practices such as yoga this is paramount. Yoga retreats are typically in a calm, serene and blissful environment so that you derive the utmost benefit from the activity. Retreats in Bali offer just such an experience. They take full advantage of very beautiful green surroundings and natural scenic beauty that calms the body and the soul.
Bali is in Indonesia, amidst a set of islands, with lush greenery and tropical beauty. It is well know for its cultural diversity and spirituality. All this make Bali the ideal destination for yoga.
The majority of population is Hindu, and they attempt to see the divine creator in everything from trees to animals. This makes the environment very spiritual and pleasant. The fresh flowers spread their fragrance in the air and you can feel the fresh air wafting over you even in the midst city life. Everyday flowers are offered to gods and the surrounding environment is then filled with its vibrant color and freshness.
Yoga and meditation, massages, healing therapies, spiritual discourses and practice are a part of retreats set up at Bali. Thus it is like a heaven for the yoga practitioners coming to Bali. You will experience nature’s beauty, tranquility, and feel blessed by being brought into this beautiful world. The serene environment helps you relieve stress and fatigue. It helps you connect to your inner self and get detached from the busy external routine where we so often do not get time to experience our inner self.
Carolyn from Australia, had been on a Bali yoga retreat.
Carolyn shared her experience saying, “The Bali yoga retreat has been a wonderful opportunity toescape the stresses of our daily lives. The daily practice in the midst of the beauty and sounds of the forest prepared us and opened our hearts and minds. In this state we fully appreciated the Balinese spiritual rituals.”
Many times people come to these retreats but fail to detach themselves from the external worries. You might consider limiting the use of your laptop and keeping your cell phones switched off when you are Bali yoga retreat. The aim of being here is to find refuge from your daily life and experience the peaceful state of your internal being so that when you get back home, you might be able to carry that state right into your daily routine.

The Molas shipwreck was a Dutch cargo vessel sunk during WWII near Molas beach, just outside the town of Manado in North Sulawesi. The deepest part of the wreck lies in 40m water. A school of longfin batfish (Platax teira) circles the top of the wreck. At nearby Tanjung Pisok, also on the Sulawesi mainland, we meet orang-utan crabs (Achaeus japonicus) in their familiar habitat on a bubble coral (Plerogyra sinuosa) and a delightful tiny clown frogfish (Antennarius maculatus).

Pawon is a small Buddhist temple. Historians have even dubbed it as "the jewel of Javanese temple architecture" due to its simplicity, symmetry and harmony. For more info on Pawon, Indonesia, visit: "..Exactly when the small Pawon temple was constructed is near impossible to say, as the ancient Javanese kingdoms seldom documented their history as written texts. Examination between the style and the carvings suggests that's Pawon is slightly older than Borobudur, which means it was built sometime during the 8th or 9th century."

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs
Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada
France Diplomatie
UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office
US Department of State
Keep in mind there are significant differences between travel alerts and travel warnings.  For instance, some alerts advise travelers of the potential of natural activities, such as earthquakes and hurricane seasons.  In more extreme instances, travel warnings advise against traveling to a specific area (e.g.
Gaza Strip), or an entire country (e.g., Iraq, Afghanistan).
Research the country-specific consular briefings for the following:
- Travel warnings for your specific destination and/or the surrounding region.
- Political stability and upcoming elections.
- Risks posed by criminal and/or terrorist activity.
- Any country/region specific issues relative to assaults against women.
Investigate region specific medical issues
The Center for Disease Control (CDC)'s Travelers' Health offers information to assist travelers decide the vaccines, medications, and other measures necessary to prevent illness and injury during international travel.
Know the airline and country's aviation safety record
The European Union Transport Commission maintains a list of civil aviation authorities, airlines and aircraft that do not meetcertain safety criteria, and hence, are banned from operating in and over EU airspace.  Whether you're an EU citizen or not, make sure the civil aviation authority of the country you're considering traveling to and/or your proposed carrier isn't on this list!
Travel Arrangements
While most business travelers use a travel agency or corporate booking services, Via Her recommends taking a couple of extra steps to increase travel safety and peace of mind.
Obtain worldwide travel and medical insurance
Consider enrolling in an international travel and medical program. Most U.S. medical plans do not cover international health services provided, and not all foreign hospitals accept credit card payments.  A good plan will cover emergency travel, medical and security assistance, and, in extreme instances, medical evacuation (which, without insurance, can cost upwards of ,000).
Register with your country's consulate
We highly recommend registering with your government's consulate in the country you are visiting. Consular officers can provide a number of services In the event of an emergency, such as replacement passports, and in extreme instances, physical security and evacuation.  This is also a great opportunity to reconfirm your entry documentation (e.g., passport, visas, work authorization permits) is up to date.
Visit your doctor to obtain vaccines and prescription drugs
Your doctor should provide you with the appropriate vaccines and medication recommended by the CDC's Travelers' Health organization necessary to prevent illness and injury during international travel.  Don't forget to ask for refills for any prescription medication you take today - it may not be as easy to obtain in a foreign country.

K-1 Visa Indonesia

The following post is intended to merely act as a primer for those seeking information about the K1 visa process in the context of Indonesia.
The K-1 visa process almost always officially begins with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). This office is under the jurisdiction of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and is tasked with evaluating visa petitions. In the relatively recent past, the K1 visa petition was sent to a Service Center with jurisdiction over the Petitioner's place of residence. Now, USCIS has created lockbox facilities in an effort to streamline the overall process.
When it comes to the processing of United States family based visas many are under the mistaken impression that receiving USCIS approval is a foregone conclusion. This is simply not true as USCIS makes adjudications based upon the eligibility requirements of the visa category as codified in United States laws, statutes, and regulations.
That said, assuming a visa petition receives USCIS approval, it will then be forwarded to the American State Department's National Visa Center (NVC) where DOS personnel will initiate a security clearance and forward the case to the appropriate United States Embassy or Consulate for further processing.
Once an immigration file arrives at an American Mission abroad the consular processing phase of the K-1 fiance visa process can begin. At this phase of the K1 visa process an Indonesian fiance must prepare and remit an application package to the US Embassy in Jakarta and undergo an interview session before a K1 visa will ultimately be granted.
Many feel that the assistance of an attorney with the K1 visa process can provide tangible benefits to both an American petitioner and an Indonesian fiance as a professional can streamline the process and provide insight and advice regarding applicable United States Immigration law.
Unfortunately, due to the prevalence of so-called "visacompanies", "visa agents", "visa specialists", and/or "visa consultants" on the World Wide Web there has been a proliferation of individuals claiming expertise in US Immigration matters where none actually exists. Only a licensed attorney in a US jurisdiction is qualified to provide advice and counsel regarding matters related to USCIS, the Department of Homeland Security, or US immigration law. Thus, when discussing United States immigration matters with a prospective attorney it is generally prudent to request credentials proving an individual's ability to practice US Immigration law. Many Embassies and Consulates around the globe will correspond directly with an American attorney. The same cannot be said for those without licensure and those seeking US immigration services should bear this in mind when making a decision to retain a US Immigration Law Firm.

K3 Visas: Indonesia

The forthcoming article is designed to convey information regarding the United States K3 visa process for an Indonesian spouse and the overall impact of NVC's "administrative closure" policy.
Comparatively few who research the K-3 visa process for the first time realize that it is not the traditional method of obtaining American family immigration benefits for an Indonesian spouse. In fact, the K-3 visa category was created under the provisions of the Life Act which was signed into law by President William Jefferson Clinton toward the end of the 20th century. The K-3 visa was a useful legislative creation which allowed many Americans to petition for expedited marriage visa benefits for their foreign spouses. Prior to the Life Act's promulgation, it could take up to three years for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) to adjudicate a classic I-130 petition for spousal immigration benefits.
The K-3 visa could be obtained through filing of a supplemental immigration petition. Once in the United States on a K-3 visa, an Indonesian spouse would eventually be required to apply to adjust status to lawful permanent residence, but, unlike the K1 fiance visa, the K3 marriage visa was created as a multiple entry travel document with extended validity thereby allowing the foreign spouse more time to apply for adjustment when compared with the 90 time frame imposed by the regulations regarding the K-1 visa.
In 2010, the United States Department of State's National Visa Center (NVC) announced that all K-3 visa applications would be "administratively closed" when the underlying I-130 arrives at NVC prior to, or at the same time as, the arrival of the I-129f petition (the supplemental petition utilized when seeking K-3 visa benefits).
For those who are unfamiliar with the dynamics of the US visa process in a family based context, the USCIS adjudicates the immigration petition initially and, upon approval, sends the case file to the USState Department for further processing and adjudication. The National Visa Center (NVC) acts as something of a clearinghouse for approved K visa petitions as they are responsible with making sure that the visa application gets to the United States Embassy or Consulate with appropriate jurisdiction to process the visa application.
It would seem as though officials at the NVC made the decision that the K-3 visa category no longer served its original purpose where the underlying Immigrant visa petition receives adjudication before the K-3 visa petition. Thus, the American State Department made the policy that K-3 visa applications would be "administratively closed" if an adjudicated Immigrant visa petition for the same couple arrives at NVC before, or at the same time as, the K-3 petition. Shortly before the the promulgation of this policy, it usually took approximately eight months from initial USCIS petition submission until final visa application adjudication to get a K-3 visa, assuming few delays. Meanwhile, it takes about 11-12 months to obtain a CR-1 visa or an IR-1 visa from initial USCIS submission until final decision regarding a visa application. Although, this calculation does not take into consideration the fact that an approved Immigrant visa petition petition usually results in the issuance of either a CR-1 visa or an IR-1 visa, assuming visa application approval and depending upon the circumstances of the parties. A CR-1 visa or an IR-1 visa confers lawful permanent residence to the bearer upon admission to the USA. This cannot be said for the K-3 visa holder as this person would still need to apply for adjustment of status to lawful permanent residence which can be both financially costly and require the expense time, energy, and resources. For the aforementioned reasons, there are some who feel that the possible gains in speed attributable to the K-3 visa process did not greatly offset the superior benefits of classic immigrant visa status in theform of instantaneous lawful permanent residence upon admission to the United States.

A Quick Guide to Bali Villa Destinations

Bali may not be physically large (at least not by Australian or American standards) but there are a number of clear destinations on the island. The villa accommodations on the island are largely confined to a subset of those destinations. In this article, The Insider looks at the most popular destinations offering villa accommodations.
Villas in Bali are primarily found in the following locations: Candidasa, Canggu, Jimbaran, Pemuteran, Sanur, Seseh, Seminyak, Ubud and Uluwatu. These locations are primarily spread throughout the south-central region of the island. There are few villa accommodations located in the north, far west, or far east of the island; the two exceptions being Pemuteran in the far northwest and Candidasa in the southeast.
Located in the south eastern portion of the island, Candidasa is the newest destination to offer villa accommodations.
Most accommodations are actually located between Candidasa and nearby Padangbai. This area first popped up on to the luxury travellers radar when the Aman group opened Amankila. The Alila group is also there now and we're starting to see a few private villas open as well. Note that dining choices in the area are limited and taxis are few and far between. Look for a villa with a chef and a driver.
Why stay in Candidasa?
This is a good jumping off point for exploring the quiet rice terraces of east Bali and the slopes of Gunung Agung. It is also a good place to catch your breath either before or after a trip to neighboring Lombok. You can catch ferries to Lombok from Padangbai, or hire a speed boat if you prefer. With recent road improvements, Candidasa is now only 45 minutes drive from Sanur.
Canggu is the fastest growing villa accommodations area.
There is a wide number of options in this area at a variety of price ranges. Many of these accommodations are new, so finding mature gardens may be a challenge. This is alargely flat area of gently rolling fields (ex-rice fields). Most villas are garden view. There are a number of villas on the coast in this area. The nearby Canggu Club is also a magnet for new villas and if you are travelling with children, look for villas with a guest club membership; this provides options to help your kids pass the time in a supervised environment (while giving parents a much needed break!). Canggu is just a few minutes drive from Seminyak. Note that the road is crowded with traffic and taxis are not as easy to find, so you will want to find a villa with a driver.
Why stay in Canggu?
Wide range of choices, access to the beach, nearby Seminyak and the Canggu Club.
Jimbaran Bay provides one of the few pleasant swimming beaches on the island, and it also gives easy access to a number of dining options. Several five star resorts are located in this area, including the Four Seasons and the Inter-Continental. Most villa operations here are villa resorts, though the nearby Tiara area provides some private luxury rentals (though these are far from the beach). This area is very popular with Asian tourists.
Why stay in Jimbaran?
Good walking and swimming beach. Access to fine dining and the seafood restaurants on the beach. This location is also just a few minutes from the airport, so getting in and out is a breeze. Taxis are easy to find here.
Pemuteran is a small town located at the far northwest tip of the island. It is primarily a destination for those who wish to go snorkeling or diving around Palau Menjangan, or who wish to trek into the Bali Barat National Park. Facilities here are limited, though there are one or two good villa resorts. Dining options and transportation are rare commodities, so plan accordingly.
Why stay in Pemuteran?
The big reason to be here (OK, perhaps the only reason!) is the access to the natural features.Snorkeling and diving at Palau Menjangan are superb -- some of the best in Asia. Bali Barat is also an attraction for trekkers.
Sanur is Bali's most gentile destination. A mecca for tourists since the 1930s, Sanur has a more laid back and mature feel that the frenetic nightlife and party scene of Seminyak. The beach here has a boardwalk and the ocean is gentle enough to allow for safe swimming. There are several villas here, some of them quite large and elegant -- and quite exclusive.

Why stay in Sanur?
This is a more quiet side of tourist Bali. You have access to everything you could want here but without the party scene.
Seseh is a relative new-comer on the villa scene, at least in terms of name recognition. There have been villas there for some time, but most people have simply labelled the area "Canggu." In fact, Seseh is further northwest of Canggu and on the coast. You might say it is the "next" up-and-coming villa destination, the natural progression of growth and development past Canggu. Seseh is quiet and must less hectic than Seminyak. It has more of a traditional Bali village feel than Canggu (which is largely rice fields). All in all, it makes for a more relaxed and intimate feeling. On the downside, it is a fair distance from all the conveniences: shopping, markets, restaurants, and taxis. Look for a villa here with full services and make sure you have a car and a driver included.
Why stay in Seseh?
As a destination, Seseh is great if you want some place quiet and relaxed with access to an undeveloped beach. Good for families, and for anyone who plans to spend time relaxing at the villa.
Welcome to party central! Seminyak is the destination of choice if you want to be only a short wallk (or ride) from shopping, restaurant, markets and nightclubs. This district is urban and frenetic. This is the home of KuDeTa, LaLucchiola, the Oberoi and much, much, more. Finding an oasis of peace and quiet is a challenge but not impossible. Prices tend to reflect popularity as this is currently the destination of choice for Bali tourists looking for villa accommodations.
Why stay in Seminyak?
Convenience is Seminyak's hallmark. Everything is here. If you are party people or you really want a hopping beach scene, this is the spot for you. If you are willing to settle for a villa hotel or villa resort, there are some very good options here.
Often referred to as the cultural center of Bali, Ubud is a destination with a difference. The feature here is culture and increasingly, fine dining; it is not the spot for nightlife. Many people view Ubud as a day trip destination and stay on the coast. For those who choose to stay in Ubud, the day time is busy and a bit hectic, but in the evenings the town slows down and is very pleasant. Lots of good museums, restaurants, and cultural attractions. Plenty of shopping here, too, but prices in recent years have gone up dramatically. Note that proper taxi services are lacking in Ubud; if you don't have your own car and driver you are at the mercy of the touts with private taxis.
Why stay in Ubud?
Ubud is cooler and damper. This is not the coast -- this is the jungle. It has completely different vibe than the coastal locations. Stay here if you want to enjoy museums, dance performances, and exploring cultural attractions.
Uluwatu is a rising star in the luxury accommodations scene. (The arrival of the Bulgari helped cement that position.) Many five star resorts are under development here and there are some beautiful, large villas here as well. Some of the island's most posh accommodations are perched atop the cliffs of Uluwatu, looking out over the Indian Ocean. Find a fully serviced villa here, with a car and driver, else you will feel stranded.
Whystay in Uluwatu?
Most people that stay here fall in two classes: Either luxe travelers, or surfers. There are accommodations for both. Aside form the surfing and the views, there is not much else to recommend the area, as development of infrastructure has yet to keep pace with the arrival of the resorts and villas.

Some famous locations that offer you private villas are Kuta, Jimbaran and Canggu. So go ahead, and have the best vacation of your life!!!
