An Indonesian delegation to the 2019 Southeast Asian Games in Manila told Reuters on Wednesday that they have organized their own hotel and transportation after news of bungled logistics in the Philippines. Indonesian weightlifting country manager said he has booked his team's own hotel and transportation because his team didn't want to take the risk.

The Philippines' hosting of the 30th SEA Games was off to a disorganized start after accounts of soccer players sleeping on the floor or stranded at the airport, transport hiccups and handwritten fixture lists, not enough drinking water and food unfit for athletes went viral on social media. In all the host city of Clark, north of Manila, and other Games venues are housing roughly 11,000 athletes and officials from 11 countries during the two-week event that officially kicks off on Saturday.
