From SULAWESI to INDONESIAN PAPUA
Hi Nikoskaps, Security situation in Sulawesi is now very conducive for traveling, the bad condition was happened 5 years ago in Central Sulawesi (Poso). But not entire Sulawesi. So you could fly from Jakarta to South Sulawesi and as a backpacker you could enjoy a trans Sulawesi trip by commuter bus from South Sulawesi to North Sulawesi ( I plan a land trip from Central Sulawesi to North Sulawesi one day) . South Sulawesi with the capital city of Makassar ( also called as Ujung Pandang)is the fourth big city in Indonesia, its also offer tourist spot like Bantimurung waterfall, Paotere Harbor, and an amazing land and culture of TANA TORAJA (Rante Pao) then you could continue your land trip to Central Sulawesi with Danau (lake) Poso, then continue to Gorontalo and the last to North Sulawesi with Tondano, Tomohon and Manado. South Sulawesi and North Sulawesi were most developed in Tourism....
Bemos, ojeks and becaks
In any town you can get an ojek (motorbike taxi) until quite late at night. Becaks (the pedal taxis general disappear when it gets dark). The rate for becaks is about 1500 - 2000 rupiah per kilometer but to be honest Wamena is so small that you can walk almost anywhere within the town itself. Minivan taxis or bemos run until about 4pm and go once they are full of people. People on the roof, about 20 inside, all the doors (sides and back) open and people clinging to them!
