Day 1

Jakarta – Bandung

Welcome to Indonesia! Today you will start your trip to Bandung with a stop in Bogor, nicknamed “the City of Rain” since it rains almost every day (even in the dry season), so make sure you bring an umbrella along. Here you will visit the famed Bogor Botanical Gardens, followed by a visit to one of the tea plantations in Puncak, a beautiful mountain pass connecting Bogor to Bandung. Following a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, you will pass by one of the 6 presidential palaces of Indonesia, the Cipanas Palace, before proceeding to Bandung.

Overnight in Bandung (Lunch).

Day 2

Bandung

After an appetizing breakfast, you will go on a full-day tour to explore Bandung. First, you will visit Tangkuban Perahu, an active volcano nicknamed “overturned boat,” where you can drive right up to the rim to see the breathtaking views of its smoldering crater. Then, you will go to Ciater, a hot spring of sulfured water that is good for healing rheumatism and several skin problems. Before ending the tour, you will visit the Angklung Music School Udjo to watch the Angklung Orchestra performance by school children of different ages.

Overnight in Bandung (Breakfast, Lunch).

Day 3

Bandung – Wonosobo

Today you will ride the morning train to Kroya and as you cross the island of Java you will explore its landscape from the comfort of your seat.  So feast your eyes on the mountainous volcanic landscape of West and Central Java while you have lunch on board. Upon arrival, you will drive to Wonosobo, a quiet and peaceful city whose name translates to “the gathering place in the forest.”

Overnight in Wonosobo (Breakfast, Lunch).

Day 4

Wonosobo – Yogyakarta

In the morning you will go on a half-day tour to explore the Dieng Plateau, a marshy plateau with breathtaking scenery. Next, you will visit the Paendawa Lima Temple and Kawah Sikidang which is a volcanic crater that has no guard rails so be careful not to slip off the sometimes-muddy trails. After a tasty lunch, you will head to Yogyakarta, visiting the magnificent 9th C Borobudur Temple (or Barabudur) on the way. Located in the Magelang Regency, this impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site is considered the largest and most significant Buddhist temple in the world!

Overnight in Yogyakarta (Breakfast, Lunch).

Day 5

Yogyakarta

Today you will explore the rich history of Yogyakarta with a visit to Kraton Yogyakarta, the Sultan’s Palace which serves as a cultural center with a museum displaying artifacts of the sultanate. Next, you will learn about the traditional batik home industry, which is a time-honored method industry of dyeing cloth using wax. Then you will visit Kota Gede, a historic neighborhood known internationally for its impressive silver crafts. Before returning to your hotel, you will visit the 9th C Candi Prambanan (also called Rara Jonggrang), a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is one of the largest Hindu temple sites in Southeast Asia!
