Islands, islands and … more islands! Indonesia is an island lover’s dream.
If temples, volcanoes and beaches are your kind of thing then travelling in Indonesia is also your kind of thing. It’s an archipelago of islands, with new cultures, new food and new experiences every time you switch islands.
You’ve got Bali, that gorgeous Hindu beast with perfect beaches and smiling faces. Then there’s Java with Yogyakarta’s temples and, yes, more volcanoes. Over the waves there’s Lombok and it’s neighbouring slices of paradise, the Gilis.
You can climb Mt Batur for sunrise, wander through rice paddies in Ubud and get a massage or ten in Sanur. You can camp on the slopes of Sengiggi, snorkel reefs and walk through villages where traditional Islamic life is every day life.
If we had to sum up Indonesia in three words it would be: seafood, sunsets and so many surprises (six is the new three).
Indonesia travel highlights
Climb the active volcano of Mt Batur
Set into an awesome caldera along with its own lake, Batur is the king of the world (well, of Bali, at least)
Take a horse-drawn cart to the beach in the Gili Islands
Seriously, this is how the locals get around. Oh and bring your snorkel, because the underwater sightseeing here is world class
Chill out in the hill retreat of Tetebatu
The rice paddies and jungly waterfalls of Tetebatu take the word ‘green’ to epic new levels
