Over View

Some travellers explore Indonesia by land. Others experience it by sea. Smart travellers do both with this amazing 15-day adventure that combines Javanese turf and Gili Islands surf. Kick things off in Jakarta and head off to the Paris of Java Bandung and opt for a traditional angklung orchestra show. Explore the Buddhist sanctuary of Borobodur in Yogyakarta, witness the majesty of Mt Bromo, and relax at Sanur before boarding a catamaran for six days of snorkelling and taking it as easy as possible in the glorious Gilis. See? You really can have it all.
