We’ve put together an amazing Indondonesia island hopper from New York! Visit Sulawesi, Bali, Lombok, Belitung and Jakarta for only $622! Checked bags are included in all flights.
After a layover in Jakarta, the time to fly to Makassar! you think Sulawesi’s geography looks fantastic on the map, just wait until you see it for real. The massive island’s multilimbed coastline is drawn with sandy beaches that fringe coral reefs and a mind-boggling variety of fish. Meanwhile, its interior is shaded by impenetrable mountains and jungles that are thick with wildlife, such as rare nocturnal tarsiers and flamboyantly colourful maleo birds. Cultures have been able to independently evolve here, cut off from the rest of the world by the dramatic topography.
Next stop – the most famous island in Indonesia! Bali blends spectacular mountain scenery and beautiful beaches with warm and friendly people, a vibrant culture and fantastic resorts.
Pay a visit to Tirta Gangga, a former royal palace (about 5 kilometres from Karangasem). It is noted for its water palace with eleven tiered fountains, beautiful carvings and statues adorning the gardens. You can also head west to see Pura Besakih, the largest and holiest temple of Hindu religion in Bali.
East Bali is also famous for its rice paddy terraces, lush forests, volcanoes, sweeping bays and wild black sand beaches with crashing waves. Admire the Gunung Agung, a 3142m volcano, which has a perfect conical shape. In Tulamben you can explore the amazing marine life living around the USS Liberty Shipwreck - the most famous dive site in Bali! In the east coast you can also dive in the underwater gallery at Jemeluk Bay.
Long overshadowed by its superstar neighbour across the Lombok Strait there’s a steady hum about Lombok that catches the ear of travellers looking for something different from Bali. Blessed with exquisite white-sand beaches, epic surf, a lush forested interior, and hiking trails through tobacco and rice fields, Lombok is fully loaded with equitorial allure. Oh, and you’ll probably notice mighty Gunung Rinjani, Indonesia’s second-highest volcano, its summit complete with hot springs and a dazzling crater lake!
The next stop, and maybe the most exotic one is Belitung! Located roughly half way between Jakarta and Singapore, this island has a total population of less than 300,000.The main attractions are its wonderful beaches and offshore islets; Belitung is one of a handful of non-volcanic islands in Indonesia, home to beaches draped in beautiful white sand and decorated by fascinating natural rock formations made from granite. Home to excellent seafood, fascinating landscapes and beautiful beaches, Belitung continues to draw adventurers from around the region to its rich and rewarding shores
Finally you will have to time explore Jakarta one of the biggest cities in Southeast Asia and a urban jungle of smells textures and colors!
