So do yourself a favor and pamper your body!
- Rent a fancy car
Renting a car in Indonesia is very reasonable – for about Rp 200,000 you can rent a decent car for the entire day. If you are looking for a high-end car and driver for the entire day, it will cost you about Rp 900,000 (this is inclusive of petrol).
- Go on a dive trip
Indonesia is one of the world’s best destinations for divers – it’s got many, many beautiful diving sites.
In Aceh’s Weh Island, a full day dive trip, which would include three dives, a meal and a boat rental would cost you about Rp 750,000. In Komodo Island, it would be a little more expensive, about Rp 950,000. In the volcanic Island of Krakatau, the full day dive package would cost Rp 1,250,000 –this includes a transport from Jakarta to the Island.
Also, you will be provided with everything needed for the dive trip, such as wet suit, regulator, oxygen tank, booties and fins.
You aren’t going to come across such a good deal elsewhere, so chuck the diving tip of your bucket list while in Indonesia!
