    Beware the mosquitoes!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Solo is a very nice place to visit. The food is good and the people are friendly. The streets are safe to walk in even at night. :)

    My only gripe is that there are millions of mosquitoes just waiting to suck you dry! The bites are painful and leave a big mark... :( Better not scrimp on application of repellent and be sure to reapply as frequently as possible.

    Not a warning but a reminder :)

    It is best to dress modestly when going around Solo and its environs. The whole time I was there, I did not see a single individual wearing short shorts or tank tops. Maybe you can wear your shorts and tank tops inside your room and hotel but not on the streets and in the tourist attractions you're going to be visiting. Most locals dress modestly and follow the prescribed dress code of their religion so it behooves us to be modest also.

    There are many Pengamen who have no qualms singing and begging on the roads of Solo. Just look out for them if you're driving. And give them the aluminium rupiah coins if you wish. Just don't hit them with your vehicle, you might destroy a potential Indonesian Idol in the making;p

    I was told by a couple to watch my belongings in Indonesia. There are alot of pick pockets and robbers there. But the place seemed not as dangerous as I heard. aybe because I was lucky. But still, I didn't walk on the street alone.

    It is not advisable to drive in Solo and Ygojakarta. Traffice is terrible and the roads are narrow. I was quite worried for the motocyclists.
