Bali Island. The Island of the Gods has wonderful sandy beaches for romance and relaxation, like the serene Crystal Bay or the more popular Kuta Bay. However, it also offers thrills for the more adventurous types. Visit the captivating, exotic Padang Padang beach – where scenes from the film “Eat, Pray, Love” were shot. If you are looking for an exciting “surf break”, this is the place for you. A little further, at Pantai Suluban, one can find the legendary Uluwatu waves too.
This small island of only 30,000 hectares is ideal for those who appreciate the unspoiled beauty of wild nature, not just organized hotels and resorts. Visit Moyo island if you are attracted to the beauty of a lush virgin forest and waterfalls and exotic wildlife. Of course, it has the standard sandy beaches and the crystal waters Indonesia is famous for, too.
No visit to Indonesia could be complete without seeing the culture hub that is Yogyakarta. Visit this place for the famous Borobodur – an eighth century Buddhist temple and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the food and the local art. If you are the daring types, why not climb up the active volcano Mt Merapi for a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience? You can also visit the beautiful local villages and see the ruins at Taman Sari, the former royal garden of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta.
With its fabulous beaches, playful waves, breath-taking wild nature and historical and art sites to visit and explore, there is simply no way you will not find your Zen in these blessed places in Indonesia.
