Java & Bali's Hidden Gems
Java & Bali's Hidden Gems OverviewA holiday itinerary that gives you time to see both Java and Bali. The first half of the holiday starts in Java with all its culture and history and the second half is in Bali with its volcanic scenery and stunning beaches. A great holiday to see historic temples, wildlife and beautiful scenery.
On arrival in Java a guide will meet you and take you to your hotel which is in the setting of the Borobudur temple and the paddy fields. Then you will move on to Yogykarta which is part of the last remaining sultanates in Indonesia. There is an opportunity to see the Prambana temple along with the Kraton, the traditional home of the sultan and the royal court. Built into the itinerary is time a Bromo where you will see the sunrise in the most spectacular fashion. To see the sunrise will require you to climb to the crest of the volcano and watch the sun come up above it, a trip not to be missed. The second half of the holiday takes you on to Ubud, Bali. Many consider Ubud to be the cultural capital of Bali. Whilst here there is the many markets and restaurants to see, also there is the ARMA Museums art gallery which is an excellent place to visit. A great place to see local wildlife in Ubud is in the Monkey Forest which is home to, as you would expect, hundreds of monkeys. Another chance to see some of the local wildlife is when you stay in your luxury beach villa in Bali Barat National Park. Experience Travel will arrange for you to go to the coastal town of Lovina and take a boat road into the bay. This area happens to be the best place in Indonesia to see dolphins and hopefull you’ll get to see some on your stay.
