Indonesia - Bali Lombok Java Sumatra

  Indonesia is a vast archipelago stretching for over 5,000 kilometres encompassing more than 17,000 islands. Indonesia is a tropical paradise with landscapes differing from island to island, but all equally as enticing. This is a great place to visit as it offers natural beauty, cultural and artistic wealth and warm hospitality. Here are a selection of ideas for visiting Western indonesia

BALI

Bali is an idyllic island, encircled by turquoise waters boasting white sand beaches and upscale boutique hotels. The interior of the island is lush and green with vast terraced rice fields, mountains and volcanoes. The hospitality is unrivalled and the rich artistic heritage can be seen in the exquisite batik paintings and intricate wood carvings. The main tourist locations are in the southern district of Kuta with it's suburbs of Legian, Seminyak, Sanur, Nusa Dua and Jimbaran. To the north, the international village of Ubud is more into culture, yoga and nature set ampongst picturesque rice terraces, forests and mountain streams. More secluded area around Lovina on the north coast are certainly worth visiting.

JAVA

Java is not just home to the famous Borobudur Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an architectural wonder, but also to highland retreats, tea plantations, volcanoes and scenic mountain passes. Jakarta, the capital, is located in Western Java where you can take flights to most remote locations throughout the Indonesian Archipelago. Bandung in the highlands, is a shopping mecca. Formerly known as Parijs Van Java, it is a leading fashion city in Indonesia. 

 SUMATRA

Sumatra is worth exploring from top to bottom. The Samon dance from Aceh displays the fastest hand movement in dances in the entire world. Lake Toba in North Sumatra is the largest lake in South East Asia and the second largest lake in the world after Lake Victoria in Africa. Kingga village in Tanah Karo, North Sumatra is a hundred years old and succeeds in maintaining its original traditions.The major city of Medan is easily accessible from Singapore as is the nearby island of Nias, world famous for its surfing breaks.
