    Taking Poppers to Indonesia in checked-in luggage??

    This might be a little off topic, but it's an issue some of us deal with. I have a friend who has gotten away with taking poppers to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Taiwan, but next month we leave to Indonesia. I am wondering if anyone has any idea about taking poppers to Indonesia in checked in luggage? I know that certain countries are more strict than others, and since Indonesia is not exactly gay friendly I was wondering how risky it is to take poppers through the airport there in Jakarta?

    It has been 3 years since I visited Bali. And I just put the bottles of Poppers in my Suitcase.
    Along with my meds.
    No Customs check at the Airport.
    So I do not feel you will have a problem.

    Poppers (Alkyl nitrite, including butyl nitrite, isopropyl nitrite, amyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrites) are prohibited medications in Indonesia in either hand or checked baggage.

    It's up to you.

    As far as I know, poppers are illegal as a recreational drug in all countries. The extent of prosecution varies, in Thailand they are openly on sale in gay online dating. I have traveled all countries you mentioned, and only once in over 20 flights in SEAsia had a cursory search of my hold luggage (on arrival inTaipei). I would search on internet (there might be no hits for this very specific case) and assess the risk. Or ask local gays about the extent of prosecution, but being caught with poppers at immigration might be very different.
