This 15 night tour of Indonesia includes a night in Singapore and two nights in Kuala Lumpur as well as a visit to Komodo Island in search of the incredible Komodo dragon.

We have added a number of escorted guided tours of local villages, temples and places of interest as well as a sunrise visit to Borobodur which is sure to be a highlight of your visit.

There are many reasons to visit. Here are some of our highlights

Indonesia is home to no less than 167 active volcanoes, far more than any other country. Some of the more accessible for visitors are in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park and the Ijen Crater in East Java Mount Rinjani in Lombok and Mount Batur in Bali.

Hardly surprisingly in the world’s largest archipelago, beaches are significant attractions. Aside from the obvious like Bali, there are wonderful beaches in off-the-beaten-track locations in Makuku, Nusa Tenggara and Sulawesi. In a nation of more than 18,000 islands, the options are almost endless.

Indonesia has some of the largest remaining tracts of tropical forest anywhere in the world, and these support an incredibly diverse wildlife from Orangutans and other primates to critically endangered Javan Rhinoceros and Tigers, and an extraordinarily wide range of bird species. Forest areas recognised as UNESCO World Heritage Sites are Ujong Kulon National Park in West Java and three huge parks in Sumatra, which together comprise the Tropical Rain Forest Heritage of Sumatra.

Further east, Komodo Island is the home of the remarkable Komodo Dragon and a very diverse marine life. Close to the very eastern limit of Indonesia, the remote Lorentz National Park in Papua has a permanent glacier and is the single largest national park anywhere in southeast Asia.

Upon arrival you will immediately notice the sudden rush of warm, wet air. Indonesia is a warm place. It has no spring, summer, fall, or winter, just two seasons: rainy and dry, both of which are relative (it still rains during the dry season, it just rains less). While there is significant regional variation, in most of the country (including Java and Bali) the dry season is April to October, while the wet season is November to March. In the highlands temperatures will naturally be cooler and there are even snow-covered peaks in Papua, whose mountains can soar above 5000m. Bring a jacket along if you are planning to visit Mount Bromo on Java or Tana Toraja in Sulawesi.
