“Must Do” Tours in Indonesia

“Must Do” Tours in Indonesia   
Recent trips included enjoying a fantastic Washington DC tour, witnessing the Back Bay from one of the fantastic Boston tours and travelling through Fort Lauderale in Florida. Indonesia however, offered something completely different – here are some of the tours any visitor would certainly enjoy.

Indonesia is made up of over 17,000 islands. With this many possible destinations on a trip, it can be tough to decide what to do and what to leave out. Since most people do not have time to see everything on a trip, it makes sense to just visit the highlights of Indonesia. Here are the must do tours on a visit to Indonesia.

Bali
If someone only had time to tour one place on a trip to Indonesia, then it would have to be the island of Bali. Most people start their Bali adventures on Kuta Beach. This amazing destination has the most gorgeous white sandy beaches with crystal-clear turquoise water. There are a host of nightclubs, restaurants and lodging options located along Kuta Beach. Visitors can swim, surf, snorkel, sail, dive, or just simply bask in the sunshine on the beach. Nobody leaves Kuta Beach without a smile from ear to ear. In fact, many people enjoy Kuta Beach so much that they never leave to visit anywhere else in Bali.

Although Kuta Beach is wonderful, there are a few other stops on Bali that should not be missed. There are many other great beaches to see in Bali, including Blue Point Beach, Nyang-Nyang Beach, Dreamland Beach and Amed Beach. Ubud is a town located in the center of Bali, and it is the spiritual and cultural home of the Balinese. There are many great temples to see in the area, and traditional arts, crafts and dancing abound.

The Javas
There are three Java islands that visitors should not miss during a trip to Indonesia. All of them offer the great beaches and water activities that can be found on every Indonesian island. In addition, Central Java has perhaps the most spectacular site in all of Indonesia, Borobudur Temple.

This Buddhist temple is a World Heritage site, and it dates back to the 9th century. Located nearby Borobudur is Prambanan Temple is a Hindu temple that was built in the 10th century to honor the Hindu god Shiva. Both Borobudur and Prambanan Temple are fantastically beautiful sites that cannot be missed. The sunsets at these sites in particular are very famous.

Visitors to the Java islands should try to get to West Java to see its many famous craters, including Tangkuban Perahu and Kawah Putih. They should also see the amazing landscape of East Java that includes jungle, savanna and desert.
