Indonesia’s Golden Triangle (17 days)

Explore Indonesia’s fascinating heritage and culture on this classic tour of a trilogy of diverse and contrasting islands. Fly to Central Java and spend your first two nights in the scenic valleys surrounding Borobudur, and explore small temples, local villages and the world-famous Buddhist monument at sunrise. Continue to the bustling city of Yogyakarta, often described as Indonesia's cultural capital, to visit the Hindu temples of Prambanan, the Sultan’s Palace and explore the backstreets which are well-known for their batik workshops. You will then take a flight to the major city of Makassar in southern Sulawesi, a frantic yet fascinating port where cultures and traders convene from the remote eastern half of the archipelago,  and take a brief tour of the city’s markets and colonial relics. Head north to Sulawesi’s Central Highlands to discover the strong cultural identity of the Toraja people and their elaborate funeral ceremonies, and have time to explore the spectacular scenery of the region. You will then take a flight south to the spiritual island of Bali, and spend time in the village of Sidemen to walk in the rice terraces, and visit the island’s many cultural sights. The trip finishes with a relaxing 3-night stay at an attractive beach resort on Bali’s quiet east coast.
