Java And Bali

14 days from £4,199 incl flights, accommodation & transfers

East of Java and onto Bali for complete relaxation.

Mount Bromo

Java is the 800 pound cultural and economic gorilla in the Indonesian archipelago, and surprisingly for an island with a population of 130 million people, it's a place where people are still some of the friendliest and relaxed in South East Asia. Islam here as with Catholism in Brazil sits lightly with the population and doesn’t affect people’s hospitality to visitors

Bali Beaches

Yogyakarta is the cultural centre of Java, where the sultan’s palace forms the central backdrop to a place where the old imperial grandeur sparkles through. Jogja as it’s pronounced is also a intellectual, cinematic [bahasa movies] and musical centre too. Mount Bromo offers the chance to get up close and personal to an active volcano and the Island of Bali despite it’s recent popularity really is still worth visiting especially the up country districts which this tour emphasises

Friendly Locals

Crossing from Islam to Hinduism creates quite a cultural smorgasbord for an open mind. Always though you'll smell durian fruit, hear dangdut/qasidah music and see roadside shrines with colourfully dressed people
