National parks in Maluku  (5 Answers)

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend some good national parks in Maluku. The Manusela one sounds pretty hard and possibly costly - has anybody been to some others in the area they could recommend?

Visiting Ternate in October 2008 - help with resources for tracking Family Tree  (8 Answers)

Hi everyone

We have been doing some research on my wifes family tree, and found that her ancestors (Cornabe) are from the Moluccas Islands, and it seems mainly Ternate. In fact Alexander Cornabe was governor there in 1780-1793. His wife was Margaretha Durr, and they all eventually track back to Holland.

We would like to visit the island, but i can find very little on island transport and hotels. Could you help us with a contact to arrange accomodation and transport, and have you any knowledge about how we may be able to look at records of the islands history?

Currently we plan to visit in September/October 2008 and will be coming from the UK, but there does seem to be plenty of information on the travel side, so no problems there.

Any help you can give would be really appreciated.

Kind regards

Security  (2 Answers)

Hi there, I am planning a round the world trip taking in Indonesia and in particular the Banda Islands, to get to that tiny rock called Run. However I understand that getting there could be tricky. Also the UK foreign office has a warning against all travel to Maluku particually Ambon.
My understanding is that to get to the Banda Islands I would have to go through Ambon.
Can someone explain if the security situation right now really is that bad, as a well travelled backpacking tourist is there much threat.
And finally what would be the best approach to reach the Banda Islands. I heard Merpiti air went to Ambon from Jakarta but their website is down - are they still operating?

Thanks in advance

Maluku - Spice Islands, Anyone???  (8 Answers)

Preparing to leave for this most beautiful part of Indonesia, I noticed that VT's Maluku forum was still empty! Am I the only one interested in these gorgeous islands??? My "member photo" to the left is a quick snapshot of what's on offer there, and I put more together in my Propinsi Maluku pages. If anyone is interested in this region, I'll be glad to provide more info!

Anyone can ask a
travel question.

Destination experts (like you!) provide amazing answers.

Readers "like" answers, and the best float to the top.
