Best of Indonesia: Bali, Borobudur & Komodo

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,288

FIRST-CLASS | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Discover the highlights of Indonesia. Start on the island of Bali, where you’ll have plenty of time to relax between Seminyak and Ubud. Then travel to Java to visit Borobudur and Prambanan, some of the largest temples in the world. Cap it all off with a journey to Komodo to see the dragons.


This 11-day Indonesian vacation takes you to the most exciting spots in the nation, including Bali, the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, and the island of Komodo. It features a mix of first-class and deluxe accommodations and small group tours. 

Your journey begins in Bali, the picturesque island that is famous across the world for its villages, beaches, and nightlife. Staying at the 5-star Alila Seminyak Bali on the peninsula in the country’s southwest, you’ll have several days at leisure to enjoy the pleasures of paradise. Spend your days in a lush accommodation mere steps from the waters of the Indian Ocean. Hit up the beaches each day to snorkel, swim, and suntan, or go surfing if you’re experienced at it (the waters can be a little choppy for first-timers). Take advantage of the excellent restaurants and shopping, as well as the popular nightclubs and bars that supply the famous Bali nightlife. You can also visit nearby Petitenget Temple to enjoy some cultural landmarks amidst the resort atmosphere. 

Connect north to Ubud, a landscape of terraced rice paddies and traditional villages that offers a beautiful counterpoint to the busier southern peninsula. Staying at Maya Ubud Resort & Spa, you’ll enjoy a luxury location pitched between the Petanu River Valley and the rice fields of Peliatan. You’ll tour the mountains and lakes of the interior and the coastline on a full-day tour across the island. Do some light shopping at the fruit and flower market at Candi Kunung before visiting Ulun Danu Water Temple, a 17th-century structure with a cascading pagoda and peaceful waterside location. Continue into the sacred monkey forest of Alas Kedaton to surround yourself with curious monkeys before reaching Tanah Lot Temple, perched on a rock formation on the coastline and home to some of the most stunning sunsets in Southeast Asia. You’ll have another day at leisure in Ubud to explore the rice paddies, visit sacred temples, or relax back at the resort.

Fly to Yogyakarta on the island of Java and spend the day exploring its temple masterpieces, including Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist temple. This breathtaking construction from the 8th and 9th centuries took 75 years to complete and contains 72 stupas, each with intricate statues of the Buddha. After admiring this masterwork, continue to Mendut Temple, which is even older than Borobudur, and Pawon Temple before retiring for the day. You'll explore centres of Javanese culture at the Sultan’s Palace, known as Kraton, and the Taman Sari Water Palace. Then visit the other temple icon of Java, Prambanan, the largest Hindu temple in Southeast Asia and one of the most elaborate temples in the world. Admire the towering constructions with layered edifices and stand in awe of this masterful human achievement. Afterwards, you’ll connect onwards to Labuan Bajo on the island of Flores and visit the impressive cave system of Batu Cermin, with its dangling stalactites, before retiring. 

On your final full day in Indonesia, you’ll head out for a boat ride to Rinca Island to disembark and search for endemic wildlife, including the Komodo Dragon, the world’s largest lizard. If you aren’t lucky enough to spot one, don’t worry, as afterwards you’ll head to Komodo Island to head on a tour that’s sure to take you up close to the dragons (but not too close). Cap off the day with a swim off Pink Beach before returning to Labuan Bajo. 

After a final night, you’ll connect back to Bali and head to the airport to return home.

Ubud is centrally located on the island of Bali and is one of Bali’s major arts and cultural centres.

In the 8th century, Javanese priest, Rsi Markendya, meditated at the confluence of two rivers at the Ubud locality of Campuan. Here he founded the Gunung Lebah Temple on the valley floor, the site of which remains a pilgrim destination. A centre for natural medicine and healing, Ubud got its name from the Balinese word, ‘ubad’- meaning medicine.
