Getting Around Indonesia and Enjoying the Journey

Indonesia is a beautiful country with a rich culture, stunning views and fascinating wildlife. It's a wildly popular tourist destination and draws millions of visitors from all over the Asia and further afield every year. Now, when planning a holiday in Indonesia, it's essential to consider the modes of transport available for getting around, especially in view of the way the country is so scattered.

Transport Options
Whether you're only travelling within the mainland or to one or more of the remote island destinations (hint hint), Indonesia offers various transport options, including buses, coaches, trains, taxis, ferries and of course domestic plane routes. Depending on your budget, time constraints and the destinations you wish to visit, you can choose the ways that best suit you.

Booking Tickets and Accommodation in Advance
But whatever your favorite mode of transport, keep in mind that tourist season in Indonesia is quite long. It begins in earnest from about March and ends in October/December, which is when a more monsoon-type weather kicks in. Now, during tourist season, the country can get quite busy with leisure holiday visitors, both local and from overseas. As such, the idea is to book your tickets and accommodation in advance, quite easy nowadays, since most tourism players can be booked online remotely. Getting your bookings out of the way helps ensure that you'll have A) a painless booking process and B) an enjoyable holiday. And C, D and E: no stress, queues or drama, respectively :)

As an aside, monsoon is still ok for some tourist activities, but keep in mind that it'll be wetter and windier than normal. Perhaps these months are better suited for indoors activities, museums, shopping, restaurants, that sort of thing.

Getting There is Half the Fun
Now, when travelling, it's always a good idea to bring a nice and tasty snack with you to keep from getting too hungry whilst on the go. After all, when riding on public transport, the next replenishment stop may still be some ways away. One of the munchies that's been going viral in Indonesia is Eureka Snacks, a tasty nibble that's made with wholesome ingredients and without transfats, GMO or preservatives.

Better still, Eureka Snacks is a gourmet popcorn that comes in compact containers, so pack easily. Oh, and the other thing I like about Eureka Snacks is that there are more than 20 flavours to choose from and that they contain a decent amount of fibre. IOW, they're not just empty calories.

Keen to give Eureka Snacks a go? You'll be pleased to hear that you can order them online and can then have them delivered to your home. Alternatively, should you already be on the road, then take a peek here and here to see where you can buy them retail-style.

Wherever you end up getting your power popcorn, here's to a great vacation in Indonesia!
