We had an awesome cab driver in Indonesia! For Leg 2 when we were in Yogyakarta, Heru met us at the train station, then came back to pick us up at 7am in the morning to take us to the cave, Goa Jablong. We only got lost a little when we were following Marcus & Amani's taxi and Bill & Cathi beat us to the cave, but otherwise, he was right on track with everywhere we needed to go. He was a total rock star and while we were off doing a task, he would look up where the next location was and call all of his friends to find out where to go.
Our driver on Leg 3 at Borobudur our taxi driver was also good - a little more quiet and didn't "fist pump" with us, but he got us everywhere we needed to go and was very kind to wait for us while Ernie counted the Buddhas. We were definitely lucky!
We'd love to come back to Indonesia. where should we visit? What are the best places for us to see?
Glad to hear that! I think compared to your season, Yogyakartans taxi driver are better than Surabayans taxi driver..
Just my opinion
Anyway I read somewhere that mentioned Ethan and Jenna were having a bad time in Leg 2 because of their taxi driver were really slow and it leads them to their elimination. Is that true?
Anyway, if Im not mistaken, you guys lost your train ticket from Hamburg to Brussels, right? How did that happen? And how did you guys handle it?
There a lot of place to visit here in Indonesia. If you like to go island hopping, I would suggest you to go to Komodo Island and Raja Ampat. Komodo Island is located in East Nusa Tenggara Province and Raja Ampat located in West Papua. they have beautiful beaches! Plus you can meet the giant lizard, Komodo, in Komodo Island. And if you like to go to mountanious area, you can go to Mount Bromo, in Malang-East Java (TAR 21 should've visited there because it's close from Surabaya and had a really great view!) #justsayin
