Indonesia holidays

A heady blend of adventure, culture and delicious cuisine

Whether you're seeking beachside relaxation, cultural exploration, thrilling adventures, or a taste of exquisite cuisine, Indonesia's diverse islands provide an endless tapestry of wonders.

Indonesia, the largest archipelago in the world, is a land of staggering diversity and natural beauty. This country boasts some of the world's most stunning beaches. Bali, known as the "Island of the Gods," is renowned for its pristine shores and vibrant nightlife. Relax on the golden sands, enjoy water sports, or experience the unique Balinese culture in the island's charming villages.

Due to its colourful history, Indonesia is a melting pot of cultures, with each island having its own traditions and customs. The historic Borobudur Temple in Java is the world's largest Buddhist temple, a marvel of ancient architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prambanan Temple, also in Java, is an exquisite example of Hindu architecture.

For thrill-seekers, Indonesia offers a wide range of adventures. Hike to the summit of Mount Bromo in Java for a wonderful sunrise view of the volcanic landscape. Explore the lush jungles of Sumatra, home to the critically endangered orangutans. Or embark on a diving expedition to witness the vibrant marine life in Raja Ampat, one of the world's top diving destinations.

Indonesian cuisine is a feast for the senses. Try rendang, a rich and flavourful beef stew, or savour the delicious taste of nasi goreng, Indonesia's take on fried rice. Street food stalls offer an array of delectable snacks, allowing you to savour the local flavours.

With over 17,000 islands, Indonesia offers an incredible variety of landscapes and cultures. Lombok's Gili Islands provide an idyllic escape, while Komodo Island is known for its famous inhabitants, the Komodo dragons. The cultural mecca of Yogyakarta in Java invites you to explore the heart of Javanese art, music, and traditions.

Indonesia's natural beauty is second to none. The terraced rice fields of Bali and the lush rainforests of Borneo are breath taking. Explore the unique ecosystems of the islands, including the rainforests of Sumatra and the exotic flora and fauna in Papua.
