Itinerary

Selamat Datang (Welcome)! We recommend you book a flight to Bandung International Airport, as it is close to Jakarta.

Your three-week journey through Indonesia begins in this lively and welcoming city.

Today we recommend that you start by visiting the Jalan Braga, one of the best streets for shopping and tourism in the city. Here you'll see many beautiful buildings in Art Deco style, like the minaret of the Great Mosque from which you’ll have a stunning view of the city and the Tangkuban Prahu volcano. You may also choose to take a trip to the volcano (optional). If you're interested in Natural History, you can visit the Geological Museum.

The first stage of today’s journey takes you to Cilacap. From here you'll head onward to Wonosobo, a beautiful mountain town located 900 meters above sea level. Because of the altitude, Wonosobo can get cool during the night. It is located at the edge of the Dieng Plateau and is flanked by the 3,000 meter high Gunung Sumbing and Gunung Sundoro volcanoes. The Dieng Plateau is a mystical landscape with sulfur springs, mud pools, and lakes.
