Indonesia’s overwhelming collection of islands are perfect for adventure, with its abundance of beaches, tropical rainforests and misty volcanoes. Add to that its blend of fascinating cultures and you have the perfect recipe for a dream travel experience.
When To Go
The Indonesian archipelago sees its peak tourist season during mid-June to mid-September and the holidays, especially New Years and Christmas. The monsoon rains are at their worst in January and February, with the May to October being generally dry and November to April as the wet months. The collection of tropical islands is largely considered to be a summer destination.
Where To Go
Bali has long been considered the jewel of Indonesia thanks to its beautiful beaches and elegant beaches. This is the destination of choice for most honeymooners.
Yogyakarta, the cultural capital of Indonesia, is the best if you are interested in exploring the magnificent Buddhist temple of Borobudur or the Hindu Prambanan temple. Java is famous for its natural attractions; the Gunung Merapi and Gunung Bromo, where travelers climb the summit to get a chance to experience the postcard-perfect sunrise views.
