Indonesia

Indonesia is a vast archipelagic nation consisting of thousands of islands stretching across the Indian Ocean to the eastern edge of the Asian continental plate and the western edge of the Pacific Ocean.

With 700 languages and 17,000 islands spread across 5,000km of tropical ocean, this is a country united by diversity. This diversity, combined with its famed hospitality, billowing volcanoes and abundant wildlife make it one of South East Asia’s most exciting travel destinations.

Mt Batur Sunrise Trekking

Ascend the slopes of Mount Batur under a star-lit sky to witness the spectacular sunrise over the island and volcanoes. The two hour uphill trek is challenging but you are soon rewarded with spectacular views including the two volcano craters and on clear days it is even possible to view Lombok’s Mount Rinjani in the distance across the Lombok Strait.

Charter a Luxury Yacht

With much of Indonesia surrounded by ocean, chartering a private yacht is undoubtedly an efficient (not to mention enjoyable) way to explore these marvellous islands, some uninhabited and as yet unnamed, a veritable feast of natural beauty. On a personalised journey, you can discover a jewel box of uninhabited islands edged with postcard-worthy beaches and fringed with pristine coral reefs, visit traditional villages and get immersed in local culture, trek through jungle to spot fascinating wildlife, surf epic waves or dive to your heart’s content.

Go Local: Village Cycling Tour

Start your tour in Petang, a quiet village on the outskirts of Ubud. Ride along quiet paths where other cyclists and the occasional buffalo are more likely to cause traffic jams than cars and buses. Pass by pristine rice terraces, where you can stop to capture photos of the layers of verdant green fields. Pedal through quaint countryside villages, getting a different perspective of what life is like on the island. There are plenty of opportunities to chat with friendly locals encountered along the way, from farmers in the fields to kids on their way to school.

Indonesia is a year-round travel destination, although arguably the months between May and October are considered to be the best due to lower rainfall.
