Introducing Indonesia

Not only does Indonesia offer some of the best beach escapes anywhere in the world, it’s also full of smiling people, incredible food, a diverse array of wildlife, and spectacular volcanoes.

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.

Loved having a private guide to teach us more about the history! We got to explore the Sewon temples without many tourists because not many people walk past Prambanan. Definitely worth it! The Ramayana show included a 3 course dinner with a beautiful view of Prambanan Temple lit up at night.
