I hope this in-depth Indonesia travel guide will help you plan an incredible adventure to these islands and if you have any questions,
just give me a shout.
Plan Your Trip to Wonderfull Indonesia
Erm, everything? Seriously, Plan Your Trip to Wonderfull Indonesia make blows me away and after spending six months exploring it I still feel like I have barely scratched the surface.
Favourites in this country were Raja Ampat and Komodo for sheer natural beauty, scuba diving and wildlife (think Mantas, Dragons and Dolphins).
Even managed to find a soft spot for Jakarta – undoubtedly one of the most slated cities in the travel blogging world.
The top attractions in Indonesia is
Cultural Hub of Ubud, Bali
Ubud is full of vegan cafes, yoga retreats and lush green rice paddies. There are a million and one things to do in Bali, but if you want to slow down, a few days in cultural Ubud is a winner. Visit the famous water temples, enjoy traditional dance and explore the famous Monkey forest before taking in the lush green landscape.
Mount Bromo, Java
An incredible spot in Java to catch the sunrise, Mount Bromo, with its aggressive smoke and surrounded by mist is now one of the most popular volcanoes to visit in Indonesia.
Ijen Blue Fire Lake, Java
The Ijen sulphur mines are not only a dangerous workplace for underpaid staff but now a popular tourist attraction thanks to the ‘blue fire’ that is emitted from the lake at night.
Hidden beaches in Bali
Whilst many people will stick to the long sands of Seminyak and Kuta, Bali has some incredible, and empty beaches just waiting to be discovered. Find my favourite on the link above.
Favourite Indonesia Trip
Scuba Diving in Batu Batong
Labuan Bajo, with its manta rays, dolphins and incredible underwater world is the ideal place to scuba dive or snorkel.
The HMS Victory wreck in Bali is another popular dive site.
Tanah Lot Temple, Bali
This famous temple along the south coast of Bali draws in the crowds, especially for sunset.
On a rock slightly out to the ocean, this is a typical tick on any Bali bucket list.
The Gili Islands, Lombok
These three spots of sand surrounded by crystal clear waters and huge turtles are a short boat ride away from Bali.
And an easy beach escape to a slower pace of life.
Wonderfull Indonesia UNESCO list Trip
Borobudur and Prambanan, Yogyakarta.
In Yogyakarta, known locally as Jogja, you can find two of the most famous temples in the world.
The Hindu complex of Prambanan and the towering structure of Borobudur can easily be done on a one or two day visit.
Komodo National Park
Home to the Komodo Dragon, a boat trip across the still waters of the bay will deliver you to this wilderness island which is protected.
The huge lizards are impressive and a local guide will keep you safe (with a stick?)
Gili Laba, Komodo.
Rainforests of Sumatra.
Sumatra is a wildlife and safari dream. With leopards, tigers, elephants and white rhinos it is a world away from the beaches of Bali.
Due to continued deforestation, this natural habitat is sadly in danger.
Sangiran Early Man Site, Flores.
The discovery site of a now extinct human species. Measuring in at only 3.5 meters tall you can visit the place that the homo floresiensis was discovered, although the remains now live elsewhere.
Indonesia also has the cultural landscape of Bali province, Lorentz national park and Ujung Kulon park inscribed on the UNESCO list.
Unique places to Trip in Indonesia
Jellyfish Lake, Borneo:
This inland lake is one of a few in the world where you can swim through the still water which is full of colourful jellyfish.
With a sting so weak that it does not affect humans this is one of Indonesians most unique activities.
Raja Ampat, West Papua
Literally translated as four kings, Raja Ampat is billed as ‘the world’s last paradise’ and it does not disappoint. Think cabin living, perfect sands, no phone signal and even tribal islands. It will cost you time and money to get here but I promise it is worth every cent.

Kri Island, Raja Ampat
See Wild Orangutans in Borneo.
Borneo’s forests are stunning, and the chance to see Orangutans in the will. Or support the conservation efforts is something not to miss if you venture to Kalimantan.
With a whole host of options for staying right in the heart of the action. such as Uncle Tans wildlife camp, you are guaranteed to be at one with nature.
Toraja Land, Sulaweregion in indonesia
Sulawesi, one of the biggest islands in Indonesia, is full of unique and diverse cultures.
One of the more popular to visit is Toraja land for their lavish funeral ceremonies which can go on for days.
The 1000 islands and Jakarta
A short boat ride from the manic capital of Jakarta, the 1000 islands are Indonesia’s answer to the Maldives.
Think over water bungalows, undersea tunnel aquariums and the kind of beaches that beg for a coconut and a good book.
