CHARITY THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY TRIP : BANDUNG, INDONESIA
21-25 FEBRUARY 2013

SOME UPDATES as of 17th Feb 2013 :

  1. Costing that you'll need to pay yourselves on the spot :
    - Entry to white carter (Rp.100.000 / SGD$12.90)
    - Ciater Hot Spring (Rp.30.000 / SGD$3.90) - bring your swimsuit+towel
    - Share Cab from Gambir Train Station to Jakarta Airport (around $4-$6, if we confirm take train)
    - Your personal Shopping
    - Your personal Tips
    - Breakfast (around $1-$3/meal), Lunch/Dinner (around $4-$10/meal)
    - Dinner at The Valley on 23 Feb night ($10-$25/meal)
    - Your personal leisure such as massage etc (cheap in Bandung)
    - Rp.150.000 ($20) for your own personal tax to be paid in Jakarta Airport
    - Estimation collection for food/stationary distributions for Charity : $50/person (this flexible to your own budget & preferences)
    - You can bring rupiah and also bring extra SGD for your own emergency cost if needed to be used then can change to rupiah there.

  2. Proposing we collect for a total Rp.6.000.000 for food/stationary distribution (roughly per person $50).
    However this is flexible. You can give less or more according to your own budget and preferences.
    I will collect in the Changi airport with envelope, you can just put into the envelope and we will buy on the first day after dinner according to the amount of money collected.

    Estimation food/stationary distribution (would be more or less depending on the amount money collected) :
    Orphanage : 4 big bag rice, Milk 20 bag, Stationary
    Elderly: 2 big bag rice, dry food
    House of Blinds: Guitar : Rp.200.000 - Rp. 500000, food

  3. Weather forecast in Bandung would be 19-23 degree, and raining season. Quiet cold so bring Rain Coat and Jacket.

  4. You can start check in now for your own flight Singapore-Bandung and Jakarta-Singapore.

  5. Power Socket in Indonesia is Euro/British type

  6. Reminder - each to manage their own old clothings - bring up to you max allowable weight.

  7. Do remember to purchase your travel insurance

  8. Due to this raining and unpredictable flooding season, traffic jam in Jakarta even throughout this week, as such preferable we pending the train purchase and will decide again next week.
    SAFER SOLUTION for now is :
    We can use the last day car rental to drive us from Bandung - Jakarta with option to pass by some nice scenery along the way, 9 am leave from Bandung. With this solution we have transport save to reach Jakarta airport. If worst case traffic jam, or flood, or traffic not moving and no taxi... we still have our own rent car to drive back to Bandung if needed, or go somewhere else without extra cost since we have rent it for one day.

  9. Suggestion/optional to minimized your bags, you can put old clothing or other donation into boxes rather than bags. In this way you carry much lighter and effisien on the last day trip.
