Pulau Nias Warnings and Dangers: 4 reviews and 2 photos
Don't believe anything anybody tells you about Pelni tickets in the Nias / Sibolga area in North Sumatra. It is possible to buy them on Nias, and so are malaria pills (also a famous scam). I've been there, I've been had, and I've been stupid. Luckily there are also honest and helpfull people over there. So, don't be afraid to miss the boat, you can take care about everything yourself. Buy the ticket before you come to Nias, or buy one in Gunung Sitoli at the Pelni office. One last tip: be there on time, the boat DOES NOT WAIT for you, or for anybody else. Good luck and happy traveling!
