Places Visited: Yogyakarta, Bromo-Tengger National Park, Kalibaru, Menjangan, Bali Barat, Ubud, Sanur
Experience the scenic and cultural highlights of eastern Java and neighbouring Bali on this superb two-week road adventure. Winding from Yogyakarta, the nation’s ‘cultural capital’, across the island’s volcanic spine to the coffee and cocoa growing plantations of the interior, it culminates with an ascent of Gunung Bromo – the signature spectacle of Java’s lesser visited eastern flank – before a wind down on the blissful beaches of Bali. Along the way, you’ll visit ancient Hindu temples, watch some of Indonesia’s finest batik being made, snorkel over dazzling coral gardens, peer over the rim of a smouldering volcano and explore some gloriously unspoilt stretches of coastline before a spell in one of southeast Bali’s most relaxing resorts.
In short: a non-stop parade of exotic wonders packed into a varied fortnight of luxury travel and gorgeous hotels – the ultimate Indonesian road trip.
