INDONESIA TRIP REPORT AND TRAVEL ITINERARY

"Mowgli [...] made us an interesting proposition: he would buy some fish at the market and grill it for us. Then, we could sleep on the beach, next to a bonfire which he and his family would lovingly tend to."
"The girls, with their hair covered by headscarves, asked for our autographs. So we signed their schoolbooks, that they pressed to their chests, with joy. [...] we felt like 18th century explorers."

INDONESIA TRAVEL INFO

Why?There are at least 18000 reasons to go (as many as the number of islands in the Indonesian archipelago). No time to list them all also because I would go crazy, but, in short, the point is that Indonesia boasts a diverse and spectacular nature, from beautiful beaches (where you can relax, surf, snorkel and dive) to active volcanoes. Outside bustling Bali, leaving the beaten track is a real adventure that allows knowing a friendly and interesting population.
When to go? The dry season (May to September) is definitely a good time to avoid storms and rains.
How? To get around you can take advantage of the cheap flights and the cheap taxis. In addition, you will always find someone willing to take you on a guided trip for a very low price. A rental car is useful where the traffic is not too stressful and it may allow venturing into places unknown to mass tourism and organized travel itineraries.
How much? Life in Indonesia is really cheap, if you don’t need luxury. Spending a couple of weeks in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia (the cheapest) costs much less than the intercontinental and domestic flights. In Java, even in fancy hotels with swimming pool and all the amenities a double room may cost about twenty Euros per night. In Bali, however, a similar hotel could be very expensive.

Where? A travel itinerary that combines the two close islands of East Java and Bali is a good idea: it allows admiring varied and spectacular landscapes and the contrasts between the two islands.
Where else? ALombok boasts beautiful beaches, while the wild Sumatra, Borneo and Sulawesi are covered by the jungle and are untouched by man in some regions (you can really make an original travel itinerary there!). Moreover, there are billions of small islands that are ideal for travelers who love either relaxing on the beach or surfing, snorkeling and diving.
