Indonesia Holidays

Formed of more than 17,500 islands, Indonesia promises a fascinating blend of people, culture and landscape; an ideal destination for those after a slice of diversity.

There’s so much to do in Indonesia: from climbing the Sendang Gile Waterfalls in Lombok and snorkelling among tropical fish and turtles off the Gili Islands, to trekking in search of Komodo Dragons in Flores. Round off your perfect day by soaking up the amazing sunsets on Seminyak beach in Bali, a sight that will take your breath away.

Indonesia is perfect for a multicentre holiday thanks to its sheer variety of sights and attractions. From beautiful beaches and historic temples to lush rice terraces, you’re sure to be left spellbound.

    Bali is by far Indonesia’s most well-known destination and well worth visiting, but I really recommend exploring Flores and Java too. You can reach both islands by short flight with Garuda from Bali so it's easy to combine them.
