Classic Java Tours

These short Java tours offer a choice of Western, Central and Eastern Java and are easily combined with a beach holiday in Bali, Lombok or elsewhere in Indonesia.

The Western Java itinerary is the most off-the-beaten track tour, even though it begins in Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta.

From Jakarta head east to Yogyakarta via Bandung and explore a region of Java which sees few Western tourists.

Central Java is the most varied and interesting part of the island - with the spectacular monuments of Borobudur and Prambanan alongside the stark beauty of the Dieng Plateau.

Eastern Java is easily combined with Central Java to make an overland journey to Bali.

This is a region of spectacular volcanoes and scenery, with cultural gems such as Malang helping to break up the focus on natural attractions.

As with all our holidays, this Indonesia holiday can be tailored to suit your interests and budget. Touring in Bali can be added or an add-on to Lombok or Komodo Island.

Central Java

A Central Java tour is normally based upon a stay in Yogyakarta in order to visit nearby Borobodur Temple, one of the most stunning sights in the whole of Asia.

Prambunan is less spectacular but still full of interest. A trip to the Dieng Plateau will reveal the central Javan landscape at its most dramatic.

Eastern Java

From Central Java, many people head east towards Bali, including visits to spectacular Mount Bromo and Ijen with its stunning crater lakes.

Malang is one of Java's most pleasant and interesting cities and well worth a stop.

Combined with a Central Java Tour this is a superb way to mix the cultural sights of Central Java with the landscapes of the East with a relaxing end to the trip in Bali.

Western Java

The West of Java including the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta is a little more off the beaten track than Central and Eastern Java.

Jakarta is a fine example of all the urban problems of an overpopulated Asian city but also has some sights of historic interest.

From Jakarta, head West to the Ujung Kulon National Park or take an overnight trip to visit the tiny volcanic island of Krakatoa.

Then head east visiting Bogor Botanical Gardens, Bandung and Tangkuban Perahu volcano en-route to Yogyakarta by rail.

At Yogyakarta link up with a Central Java Tour and then on towards Bali through Eastern Java.
