11 Days / 10 Nights
Commences and terminates in Bali
Ideal for 1 to 8 Travellers
This is a 11-day sample itinerary. Remember that IndoExcursions can create a journey of any length to meet your exact specifications.
* DAY 1
Selamat datang, welcome to Indonesia! On Day 1, you will arrive in Jakarta, perhaps after completing a very long flight from abroad. With this in mind, we've arranged for a lovely hotel very near to the airport which will provide all the amenities you need to relax and unwind for a few hours.
At 7pm, we'll convene for a Welcome Dinner and Orientation in the hotel's premiere dining room, where you'll meet your Escort/Tour Leader for the first time. Over dinner, the Tour Leader will give you a detailed Trip Itinerary and a Mobile Telephone (so we can stay in touch throughout our journey). After dinner, we'll head to bed for a good night's sleep before embarking on our journey across Indonesia in the morning.
Islands of Java & Komodo
* DAY 2
Wasting no time on Day 2, we'll enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast at our hotel, then immediately depart for the airport. We'll fly to the centre of the Island of Java, where we'll begin our journey with a visit to the ancient TEMPLE OF BOROBUDUR. Looming out of a patchwork of bottle-green paddies and swaying palm tops, this colossal
ninth-century relic is the world's largest Buddhist monument and a World Heritage Site. Like Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Borobudur makes the rest of Southeast Asia's spectacular sites seem almost incidental.
IndoExcursions travellers will receive special passes to stay on the Borobudur site outside of public visiting hours, which will allow us to watch the sun set over Borobudur - a wonder to behold - before enjoying a sumptuous dinner and settling into our accommodations for the evening.
* DAY 3
We'll wake early on Day 3 and head to a hill overlooking Borobudur, where we'll have a "picnic breakfast" whilst watching the sun rise above the enigmatic temple. After breakfast, we'll drive through the Java countryside to our next destination, the CITY OF YOGYAKARTA (or "JOGJA").
Let's start planning your next journey.

Ruled by a Sultan to this day, Jogja is the "soul" of Java. Central to the island's artistic and intellectual heritage, Jogja is where Java's arts are at their brightest and its traditions at their most visible. After checking into our Jogja hotel, we'll visit several of the galleries that line the streets of the city and showcase the highest craftsmanship in Java, then end our day at a landmark restaurant.
* DAYS 4, 5
On Days 4 and 5, we'll spend two full days exploring the pulsating culture of Jogja. Highlights will include the walled palace of the Sultan (the Kraton); the royal gardens (Taman Sari); the resplendent Prambanan Hindi Temple Complex, erected in the ninth century about 50 years later than Borobudur; and an outdoor evening perfor -
mance of a centuries-old dance of the Javanese court, set against the stunning backdrop of Prambanan's main temple. Along the way, there will be plenty of time to visit batik galleries, silversmiths, and other local artisans producing products unique to this region of Java.
* DAYS 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
On Day 6, we'll take a flight to the Island of FLORES and check into a beach resort in Labuan Bajo (the Island capital). As we enjoy dinner at our resort, we'll watch the sun set over the infamous KOMODO ISLANDS just west of Flores.
Early on Day 7, you'll make your way back to the Labuan Bajo port and board IndoExcursions' large and luxurious phinisi ship - a magnificent traditional Indonesian sailing vessel with "mile-high" sails. With you onboard, a private chef and a full staff, you'll set sail for the Komodo Islands - a UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site and home to the famed Komodo Dragon, the world's largest monitor lizard.
Whilst intrepid travellers and dragon chasers have been coming to the Komodo Islands since the 1980s, it wasn't until 2011, when Komodo National Park was named as one of the NEW SEVEN WONDERS OF NATURE, that the islands caught the attention of the world at large.
For 4 glorious days, you'll glide through the crystal blue waters of the Komodo Islands - an area boasting the greatest marine biodiversity on earth, and teeming with dolphins, green turtles and giant mantarays. During your voyage, you may snorkel on pristine sandy white beaches; or explore the island coasts in search of Komodo Dragons; or, if you prefer, you may spend the entire 4 days relaxing on deck with a margarita in hand. All this, whilst enjoying world-class meals and accommodations on a luxurious sailing vessel. What's not to love?
On Day 10, upon returning from your 4-day cruise, you'll spend one final evening in Labuan Bajo, where you'll enjoy a lavish farewell dinner and check into your resort for another night.
* DAY 11
Having completed a 10-day journey across two Indonesian islands, you should have restored balance to your mind, body and spirit. We expect you'll be well-tanned, have heaps of photos, and lots of stories to tell when you get back home. But, more importantly, we hope you'll have many fond memories of experiences shared with new friends.
On Day 11, we'll make our way to the Flores airport in Labuan Bajo to say our goodbyes. Then, you'll fly back to your original entry point in Indonesia, where IndoExcursions will have arranged a final night's accommodation for you before you head back to your home country . . .
Unless, of course, you live in Indonesia, or choose to remain in Indonesia for some independent travel!
WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US FOR ELEVEN DAYS OF FRIENDSHIP AND CONVERSATION . . .
AND THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO TRAVELLING WITH YOU
IN THE WEEKS OR MONTHS AHEAD.
