The first thing to remember is that the more people that participate, the more minimal expenditure. This is because the majority of the means of transportation used in the Raja Ampat is a rental, ranging from cars to boats to get around. So, bring your “crew” as much as possible!. To reach the Raja Ampat from Jakarta, there are three alternatives. First, using the ship. Least expensive, but the longest journey. 5 Days 4 nights until he reached the city of Sorong. The second alternative is to buy a ticket promo direct flights to Sorong. Sriwijaya airlines for example, never give promo Buy 1 Get 1 Free. Residence multiplied by two for round-trip fare. The third option is to fly (promo of course) from Jakarta to Ambon, then go by boat from Ambon-Sorong. But get ready, because the ship was only stopped about 1 week.
In Sorong, you can hire a taxi content of 5 people (about USD 50-70 each way) to the Port of the People. Before boarding the boat to Waisai (the capital of Raja Ampat), you should buy supplies in advance. Drink plenty of water, and foods such as instant noodles. Food prices in Sorong cheaper than the Raja Ampat. There are two ships in Sorong-Waisai route, they went each at 14.00 CEST. The first is a fiber board. It’s cheaper if you use a wooden boat. Of Waisai port, you can use a taxi service for finding lodging in the city. But before check in, you should go to the local ministry office. Every tourist who entered the territory of Raja Ampat Conservation cost of $20 (domestic tourists) and $50 (foreign tourists).

Want to be more efficient?. If you want to explore the Raja Ampat next day, wake up at 04.00 CEST. Waisai Go to Market, and look at the line of the boat (locals call it “long boat”) that can be rented through bargaining with fishermen. It costs about Rp 2 million (including boats and fishermen themselves as a driver), but not including fuel. Wayag is a favorite destination of the traveler. This is the icon of the Raja Ampat you normally see on the screen, a sea of dark blue mountains adorned with a small green.
