Location and Directions
From Zurich to Singapore (Singapore Airlines is always a recommendation): departure in Zurich is around noon, after a little flight time a light dinner will be served. To aid digestion and for your amusement, a wide range of movies are available, a little chat or drink will shorten the wait before you put yourself to a nap. After twelve hours around six o’clock in the morning you will land in Singapore. Should you have any problems with your booking or waiting lists please inform Philippe. One of the heads of Singapore Airlines is Philippe's school friend.
Highly recommended is a stop-over in Singapore for two to three days. There are very inexpensive packages with Singapore Airlines available.
Or, you spend just one hour (transit time) at the airport in Singapore and fly straight in two and a half hours to Bali. Of course, you will be picked up at the airport in an air conditioned car with driver, provided refreshing towels and cold drinks. The trip to Villa Gueggel will take 30 to 60 minutes. The travel time depends much on the traffic, sometimes it is extremely tight and with the road to and from the airport being expanded. Numerous road constructions taking place until the end of 2013. The actual distance to the Villa Gueggel is only 18 km. For our transfers from the airport the exact arrival and departure dates and times are required and need to be emailed including flight number to Philippe prior arrival:
Once landed in Bali, it is an advantage to get to the VISA-Counter as quickly as possible. The fees for the visa are $ 35 which will be collected on the first counter, followed by IMMIGRATION procedure. The faster you are getting in line, the faster you will be processed. Bear in mind that it can sometimes take a long time. After your got your passport stamped you can proceed to the baggage claim area - if you have lots of luggage, we suggest to take a porter, he also accompanies you through Customs (all luggage needs to be placed on a control band) to the airport exit. Pay each Porter 1 USD to max. 3 USD - do not bargain! Your driver is waiting outside the arrival hall for you.
