Planning first trip to Indonesia for 15 days

by giicko »

Hi everyone,

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

That was an interesting itinerary. How was your trip at the end? 

I went to Indonesia this year and tried to visit places outside of Bali. I visited Wakatobi in Sulawesi for diving, hiked two volcanos (Mount Kelimutu in Flores and Mount Rinjani in Lombok), took a boat trip from Komodo (where I visited the Komodo dragons and did scuba diving) with amazing beaches and landscapes and visited the famous temples of Borobudur and Prambanan in Yogyakarta. 

I had a really good experience and loved the country. I included some information about a trip to Indonesia and how much I spent in 25 days in my post about Traveling to Indonesia. Please feel free to check-it-out and share with us your experiences!

I think you have a great plan there! I came back from my Bali trip a few months ago, and I still can't get over it. Ubud is the most magical place, nature is amazing, especially the rice fields! I stayed at https://balivillaescapes.com.au/?villas=villa-samaki-3-bedroom and I recommend it to anyone who wants complete peace and relaxation.
