Indonesia holidays are unlike any other getaway. Expect to experience a diverse range of cultures, people and scenery. Seek adventure in Bali by trekking up volcanic mountains, get in touch with nature on Flores at the Komodo National Park, or relax on the pristine white sandy beaches of the Gili Islands.

Boasting over 17,500 islands, Indonesia is the perfect spot for families, couples or solo travellers who love variation in their itinerary. No two days should be the same when there’s a whole world to experience. When people picture Bali they think of beautiful beaches, but make sure you go beyond the beach, as this island has a lot more to offer. Treat yourself to a spa day at one of the many wellness centres, dive in the deep end and discover the unique marine life that reside in the coral reefs and don’t forget to visit the cliffside Balinese Hindu sea temple known as Uluwatu Temple.

Discover yourself among the islands of Indonesia

The Indonesian islands allow you to effortlessly combine spiritual learnings and practices with breath taking dramatic landscapes. Spend your mornings visiting local temples and mosques, such as the Confucian temple in the Sulaweshi highlands or the Cheng Hoo Mosque in Surabaya. Dedicate your afternoons to climbing the Sendang Gile Waterfalls in Lombok or hiking up the 4,095 metre tall Mount Kinabalu in Kalimantan.

Don’t miss anything on your Indonesia holiday by booking one of our multi-centre packages. Choose from our Bali and Komodo National Park multi-centre, which includes a 10 day trip to the popular national parks, the chance to unwind on tranquil beaches and an exploration of Ubud where you’ll get to make some monkey friends. Alternatively, you can craft your very own multi-centre package and combine your favourite Indonesian destinations.

“If you want to see Komodo Dragons without the crowds, skip Komodo Island altogether and visit its quieter sister island of Rinca, where you can still see these unique animals in their natural environment.”

Isla, Destination Executive

“Did you know that you can also see Orangutans in their natural habitat in Indonesia? The jungles of Kalimantan are home to these majestic animals. Stay in an eco lodge for your chance to explore the rainforest habitat and have your chance to spot Orangutan, Proboscis Monkeys and more.”

Nyepi

Nyepi (“Day of Silence”) is a public holiday in Bali which commemorates every Isakawarsa. This Hindu tradition is when the Balinese people celebrate the New Year. The New Year is celebrated the day after the dark moon of the spring equinox – when day and night are the same length as each other. This year, Nyepi falls on the 25th March 2020. Balinese people celebrate by taking a day of silence, fasting and meditating. This means that shops are closed, you can’t turn on your lights or light a candle, and there is no traffic on the roads.

Independence Day

Independence Day is a national holiday that celebrates the anniversary of Indonesia’s Independence, which happened on the 17th August 1945. Join in the celebrations by attending a flag ceremony, where locals decorate their houses and streets with red and white ornaments, sing national anthems and pray for the late national heroes. After the flag ceremonies, you can get involved with the competitions that take place, such as kerupuk (cracker) eating, climbing palm trees greased with oil, sack races and many other games. The competitions and games are fun but also serve as a reminder of the time before independence.

Bau Nyale Fishing Festival

The annual Bau Nyale Fishing Festival is held in February/March. This exciting not to be missed event takes place on Lombok Island and involves watching the Nyale sea worms at the first light of day. The Nyale sea worms can only be seen once a year and are thought to bring good fortune, especially for those who manage to catch them. Other activities during the festival include surfing competitions, photography contests and plenty of delicious food to try.

Jalan Jaksa Festival

Join in the celebrations at the Jalan Jaksa Festival, which is held in July/August. Try your hand at the batik making workshops or involve yourself in the traditional dancing that journeys from Kalimantan to Sumatra. Sample some of the secret recipes which were passed down by indigenous Jakarta families and enjoy conversing with the locals and learning about their lives. 

 

Bali Arts Festival

Creative folk should get involved in the Bali Arts Festival, which happens in June/July in Bali. This lively cultural festival consists of a month of daily exhibitions, performances and various art activities for you to try. Watch some of the impressive dances, listen to the music and talk to local artists about their masterpieces.

Indonesian Satay

Indonesian Satay is available in most restaurants and street stalls. This delicious, national dish is one of Indonesia’s most celebrated foods and it’s easy to see why. These meat skewers are cooked over hot coals and deliver a juicy, satisfying flavour and texture. Indonesian satay is often served with ketupat (rice cakes) and topped with peanut sauce, to bring out more flavour in the meat.

Sweet Martabak

For those with a sweet tooth, try the Sweet Martabak. Similar to a pancake, this tasty dessert can be filled with a topping of your choice, whether it’s chocolate, cheese or peanuts. Sweet Martabak is only available in the evenings though.
