Overall it was a really great trip-I saw and did a lot in Indonesia in two weeks, and met some really great people on the way.
Nick, 23 Sep, 2012 Java & Bali - A Tale of Two Islands
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).
