My husband and I are going to Kawah Ijen and Mount Bromo at the end of this month. Would welcome suggestions on the following:
1) Night Tour to Ijen - Already booked our hotel but not the actual trip to Ijen crater itself. Would it be better (cheaper but reputable) to arrange it when we reach the town, online, or through the hotel?
2) Mount Bromo - At the moment undecided as to whether we should go for a tour or hike up by ourselves. We saw that some people say it is better to go to King Kong Hill instead of Penanjakan viewpoint. Does anyone have any personal experience to share? Also read that the two places are actually near each other. We would then like to go to the crater, Savana Hill and Whispering Sands. Is it possible to go to all these places by foot or by jeep is necessary? If yes, how long would it take and how strenuous would it be? Are there any places along the way to get food and drinks?
Thanks in advance for any help/insight. :D
