Planning first trip to Indonesia for 15 days
I am planning my first trip to Indonesia for 15 full days beginning of September. I love nature, culture, authentic places in the countryside & beaches ofcourse!
Here is my initial plan:
Day 1: Arrive in Jakrta, take a plane to Yogyakarta.
Day 2: Explore Yogyakarta
Day 3: Visit Borobudur and Prambanan
Day 4: Explore a neighboring village: need advice on where to go as a day trip for a countryside experience. Leave by plane to Surabaya. Head to closest town to join a tour for Mount Bromo sunrise, which town should I stay in?
Day 5: Sunrise at Mount Bromo, spend the day in the area then head at night to a nearby town near Kawah Ijen to go for sunrise, which town should I stay in?
Day 6: Sunrise at Kawah Ijen
Day 7: Undecided: Sumatra or Flores or Komodo or Raja Ampat
Day 8: Undecided: Sumatra or Flores or Komodo or Raja Ampat
Day 9: Undecided: Sumatra or Flores or Komodo or Raja Ampat
Day 10: Pemuteran, take the ferry to Menjangan Island for snokeling
Day 11: Ubud
Day 12: Ubud
Day 13: Gili Islands
Day 14: Gili Islands
Day 15: Gili Islands
Day 16: Gili Islands, take a late plane from Bali to Jakarta
Day 17: Back home
The travel dates are not fixed and can be pushed later if the weather is better.
The undecided 3 days can be at the beginning of the trip if needed, but I wanted to keep Bali and the beach days at the end of the trip. So, if for example Sumatra is the better choice, then I can start my trip with 3 days there then continue on to Jakarta.
Thanks a lot for your input
