My friends and I have long been planning to travel to East Java, and we have decided to go on November 29 to December 1, 2013. Our destinations are particularly Mount Bromo and Sempu Island, located in Malang. Four of us are going to meet in Malang; three fly from Jakarta to Surabaya and one go by train straight to Malang station.
After taking so much time browsing to search any tour and travel agencies which offer a Bromo-Sempu trip for three days, we have yet to find the one we’re looking for. Most of them set high, expensive fee for the trip; it’s more than Rp 800.000 per person (for at least seven participants). Some even do not put the exact or range of fees on their websites, so we personally contacted them to ask about it. But they replied once just to ask about the number of participants, no further information, and then they did not reply anymore.
The three of us take a night flight on Thursday, November 28, 2013. We will probably rent a car from the airport to Malang but it would be a lot better to get a travel agency which includes a pick-up service from and to airport.
I hope many people read this and join my trip so we can travel together and, of course, find lower fees. 😀
