HIGHLIGHTS OF INDONESIA
Spotting komodo dragons. Catch a glimpse of the world’s largest lizards, which grow to an incredible 10 ft, on the island of Komodo in the Indonesian islands.
The elegant temple of Borobudur. Incredibly, this beautiful 9th century Mahayana Buddhist monument in Java houses over 500 Buddha statues.
Sunrise over Mount Bromo. For a perfect start to the day, watch the sun illuminate the iconic – and active - volcano in East Java.
Bali's cultural capital, Ubud. With traditional artists' workshops, ornate Hindu temples, rice fields and caves housing ancient statues, it’s worth dedicating several days of your Indonesian escape to Ubud. Cameras at the ready!
Kota beach. We think Kota Beach, in Lombok, is among the most beautiful anywhere.
The surreal funerals at Rantepao. Locals wearing traditional dress hang curious wooden statues from every inch of the nearby canyon and, in surreal bamboo houses, make offerings to the deceased - before tucking in to an enormous feast and drinking Tuak, a traditional alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice.
The Spice Islands. With white sand beaches, tropical rainforests and some fantastic snorkelling, the Spice Islands make for a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
