When is the best time to visit?
The hands down best time of the year to visit Indonesia is between May and September, when the days are dry and sunny. That being said, it stays warm and comfortable during the wet season as well, when you should expect intense downpours that last a few hours but clear up pretty quickly.
Where to go in Indonesia?
As tempting as it is to spend the entire trip relaxing in Bali, there’s so much more to Indonesia than beaches and spa treatments. Visit active and dormant volcanoes, such as Mt. Bromo in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, or paddle through the Komodo National Park, home of the world famous Komodo Dragons. You will inevitably travel in and out of Indonesia via Jakarta, and other cultural destinations to explore include Yogyakarta, Tana Toraja, and the Baliem Valley.
How many days do I need?
Indonesia is best experienced at a slower pace. Let yourself enjoy the beaches and other natural scenery, and maybe even visit a spa or two. Try to reserve at least a week to really savor this country.
Spend eight days in two of Bali's most popular spots with this itinerary. You'll start off in Seminyak, visiting surfing beaches and watching the sun set. Then head to Ubud to take in the temples and wildlife and learn to cook in the Balinese style before you depart.
Tied the knot and want a customized trip to celebrate your love? Try honeymooning in Bali. This tour combines culture, relaxation, beautiful landscapes, snorkeling, and a touch of adventure: the perfect combination for an unforgettable honeymoon.
Discover the best of Balinese nature, culture, and beaches on this unforgettable 10-day adventure. For the first half of the trip, you'll base yourself in Ubud, going on excursions to hike around rice terraces, cycle through villages, and visit the region's famous temples. Then you'll continue on the journey with a sunrise trek to the top of Mount Batur and a detour to Tanah Lot, a magnificent Balinese sea temple. Spend the last part of the trip in the lively resort town of Seminyak, the perfect jumping-off point for a boat cruise and snorkeling trip around the idyllic island of Nusa Lembongan.
This two-week itinerary will take you from East Java to Bali with stops at sites both famous and less-frequented. Tour multiple Javanese temples, including Borobodur and Prambanan; trek up to the tops of Bromo, Kawah Ijen, and Batur volcanoes; and stroll through terraced rice fields and coffee plantations as you explore these two lush islands.
Hike, swim, cycle, and snorkel around two of Indonesia's islands, Bali and Nusa Penida, on this active 10-day itinerary!
