PostSubject: 3 days in September with a 5 year old daugther and a 75 year old mom   Mon Aug 29, 2011 12:28 am

Hi
I was just looking for recommendations on what's best to do for 3 days next week.

I will be staying just outside Senggigi with my husband, 5 year old daughter (has had a year of swim lessons, but not a strong swimmer) and 75 year old mom (still mobile and able to swim).

I thought of maybe doing a snorkelling day trip on one day and maybe a half day trip to the waterfalls and to see some local handicraft on another day.

Do you have any recommended and reliable tour operators for the above and where exactly would you recommend we go?

Is the jellyfish situation bad at the moment?

Thank you all in advance !

Definitely a days snorkeling at the Gilis. A trip up to Sendang Gile is gong to be more than a half day though. It is about a 2 hour drive from Senggigi so I would allow a full day so you have time to walk down to the waterfall. With a 5 year old I imagine that will take a while (it would with mine anyway) and you wouldnt be able to get to the second waterfall with a 5 year old. Pondok Senaru is a good spot to have lunch overlooking the waterfall. For the third day I would probably spend it in Senggigi itself rather than trying to fit in the craft villages too.

As for jellyfish I dont know about Senggigi but I have never seen jellyfish down on the south coast.

During our October 2010 visit we stayed at Holiday Resort apartments and used the following services:

1. For day trip car/taxi: Augustine 62-81803617343. I believe she is a tour operator and works from Sheraton premises.

2. For visit to one of the gilis, with pick up and drop off from/to Holiday Resort including ride by a fast boat: Mr. Jabong at 62-81907818597. Never met the man but his services were on time and convenient to a party of five adults and two children. We were picked up at 9 a.m. and were back at Holiday Resort at 5 p.m. The tour was to visit two of the three gilis but we spent all the time in Trawang because the two children enjoyed the beach immensely.

My recommendation is for you to use these two contacts based upon your need.

On another day we did go to the base of Mt. Rinjani. There is a nice restaurant near the entrance to the park with deep steps leading to the falls. One in our party was a 74 year old from New York city and she did manage it. We took our own time to go down and climb back. It may be worth taking a dip after sweating a lot. Have enough water to last the trip.

Enjoy your trip.

Josi
