Hello again, I recently posted a thread about a trip I'm planning to Indonesia in 08/09. The first part of my trip I plan on visiting one oft the Orangutan preserves. I know they can be seen in Borneo and on Sumatra. I'm trying to decide where to go. I'd like to stay away from tourist traps and Ive read some disturbing stuff about camp leaky and another spot in Borneo. Can anyone recommend a place our a tour company. The rest of my trip(3 weeks) will be spent traveling acrossthe Nussa Tengarra region west to east. I've never been to Indonesia and really don't know what to expect except for what Ive read.
Is this trek doable in 3 weeks?
Do I need to book rooms in advance or could I find lodging while there?
Thinking about renting a motorcycle (i'm experienced driver) in lombok, is this a good or bad idea?
Would like to do a lot of snorkeling and some surfing, what areas are best?
Any must sees or islands I should skip? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all the responders to my last post
