Depending on where you will stay, it might be the cheapest and most convenient option to rent from the hostel. But I guess this only counts for smaller venues, that are run by a family. I also wanna note that as far as I remember it is very dangerous to ride the scooter. People are driving like crazy and if you're not used to the way they drive it can ...

"I want 4G while traveling in Indonesia" !!!!???!!! Unless you want to travel only in the center of big Javanese city, your request is as absurd as asking for only the best cheese on the Moon. Indonesia is a Huge country and Indonesia is a POOR country. Not poor like Detroit city, mind you. Poor like "my son died because there was no running water at the ...

I only have experience of 3G coverage in Indonesia with Indosat & Telkomsel. So I will only discuss those mobile providers. I tried those providers in remote areas (Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Flores) and also in big cities. Long story short: Telkomsel wins. Indosat Basically, Indosat is "ok" but I found it to be very unreliable in many places. ...

If you're particularly worried about a specific area, for comparison, I managed to find some coverage maps on Sensorly: Coverage map for Telkomsel 2G-3G Coverage map for Three - 2G-3G Note that on either of those, you can change the drop down on the right for (at time of writing) five providers, to see their coverage.

The best offer I got so far was 1.8 millions IDR for renting a surf board one month in Bali (Canggu). The nice part of this deal is that the owner of the shop told me he could not do a better deal as it is now the high season (August) but he'd allow me to change board every week if I need to (as I'm learning). I'll update this answer if I get any other ...

Following up on this after renting motorbikes in Bali several times. For a 2 weeks rental, it's easy to get it around 35'000 IDR per day, that's 490'000 IDR maximum for two weeks. Actually, I rented a scooter for 1 month for 500'000 IDR. So you can get this 2 weeks rental for much cheaper I assume. Another option if you don't know how long you will stay ...

Following up on Jpatokal's answer. After staying for a month or so in Bali, I got stopped two times by a police control. Each time they asked for a bribe of 200'000 IDR to let me go. The first time I only had 100'000 IDR in my wallet, they ended up accepting it. The second time I was ready with a dedicated pocket having only 50'000 IDR, and they ended up ...

Adrien's answer is spot on. Except for one thing. I just went to the embassy for visa application and they required me to have a return ticket. I am an Indian national. It may be different in my case. So I booked a ticket ticket from phone, went to lucky plaza to get a printout and joined the queue again. I got out in 20 minutes after that.
