Overview
Of all the 17,000 islands that make up the country of Indonesia, Java is rightly regarded as the king. Boasting a dazzling array of bewitching landscapes – iridescent rice paddies, smoking volcanoes, rainforest and savannah – as well as mega cities and profound traditions in art, spiritualism and learning, Java is the most complex and culturally compelling island in Indonesia. And on this seven day tour you will get to see so much and leave with so many magical memories.
Day 1
