The "Best Of Java" tour starts in Jakarta and ends in Sanur. It is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 9 days taking you through Bandung, Ngadas, Malang and 4 other destinations in Indonesia. "Best Of Java" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

With a population of 135 million crammed into just under 140,000 sq km, you’d think there’d be no room on Java left for adventuring. As densely populated as it is, this amazing stretch of Indonesia has loads of unexplored corners just waiting for travellers looking for something a little different. From Jakarta, you’ll venture to the curiously European-like city of Bandung (the “Paris of Java”) en route to Yogyakarta, home to the island’s monstrous volcanoes. Then wrap it all up on the gorgeous Balinese beaches of Sanur. (Hey, if you can’t beat the crowd, join it!)
