Overview

Sitting peacefully between the mighty Indian and Pacific oceans you’ll find Indonesia, the world’s largest island country. Made up of more than seventeen thousand islands, this tropical paradise boasts the second longest shoreline in the world after Canada, meaning there’s ample opportunity to surf and sunbathe. This, when blended with Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage and dynamic history, makes for an irresistible holiday concoction.

For two nights, fall in love with the cultural metropolis of Jakarta and its futuristic skyscrapers which graze the horizon. Running through the core of Indonesia's capital is not only a hodgepodge of differing cultures, ranging from Arab, European and Malay influences, but also a variety of historic treasures, such as the Museum Bank Indonesia and the harbour area of Sunda Kelapa whose roots can all be traced back to the time of the Dutch East Indies. 

During a full-day of sightseeing, feast your eyes on the impressive Istiqlal Mosque (the largest in South East Asia) before brushing up on your history at the National Museum -  an awe-inspiring display of Indonesian artefacts and ancient art. Then, wander the 500 year old Sunda Kelapa harbour and revel in the sights and delights of the Old Town before swapping Jakarta’s bulbous skyscrapers and urban feel for a relaxing stay on houseboat for three nights of bliss (with meals included). 

During your delightful houseboat cruise, expect to see goofy orangutans peering out from between forest branches, swarms of endemic birds combing the undergrowth for food and fireflies dancing between Nipa Palms. At dusk, you’ll find yourself gazing  up at a starry sky while tucking into your supper. 

Getting up close and personal to orangutans at rehabilitation centres, watching feeding sessions and seeing where older orangutans are reintroduced into the rainforest will hopefully heighten your love for the animal kingdom during this enchanting houseboat stay. What next? We’ll whisk you off to Bali, a haven for Hindu festivities and glittering beaches with sand that cradles your toes so fiercely you’ll never want to leave.

Bali is bursting with heaps of sacred spaces which are beautifully embellished and a real sight to behold. You’ll be able to feast your eyes upon the Taman Ayun, Tanah Lot,Ulun Danu, Batuan and Uluwatu  temples during the course of your stay. If these wonderful constructions don’t have you reaching for your camera, we don’t know what will… 

And to top it all off, you’ll take a serendipitous stroll along the shores of Lake Bratan, home to the pleasant mountain village of Bedugul (a haven for luscious vegetables and botanical gardens) and enjoy a sensational dance performance at sunset on your last evening.
