Trip review
Indonesia

loved their trip to Indonesia

It was our second trip to Indonesia (earlier one was in 2005). This time we concentrated on the history and culture of the land. The Hindu culture and architecture that permeate Java and Bali were very fascinating and we spent quite some time exploring many of the Hindu temples. Borobudur at sunrise was magnificent, but Mount Bromo at sunrise was not as great as it was hyped to be, perhaps because we did not have the best vantage point. Even at 3am it had become crowded by people waiting for sunrise! The trip to Komodo island was really worth it. We enjoyed Bali, too, but it has become overcrowded with tourists (like it has been for many years), more like some parts of Thailand. Still it has its own unique Balinese culture. The other big surprise was Indonesian food, one of the best we have tasted in our travels. Above all, the hospitality and friendliness of Indonesians was amazing. A trip that we will remember for a very long time to come.

Best parts:
The trip was absolutely fabulous, my wife and I enjoyed it immensely. It was incredibly well organised, especially in Java, Kalimantan and Komodo island. The guide in Java was especially friendly, polite, courteous and deeply knowledgeable. The entire 5-person crew during our cruise along the Sekonyer river in Kalimantan were equally wonderful people. Best bits? Borobudur Temple, Komodo dragon, orang utans, and Indonesian food.
Worst parts:
Nothing.
