Why we recommend Indonesia
- Views of volcanic mountains
- Interesting and unusual flora and fauna
- Blissful white beaches
A land of fire, Indonesia is made up of more than 17,000 volcanic islands cast across the Pacific and Indian Oceans. This is a country rich in culture, teeming with exotic creatures, packed with breathtaking views and brimming with glorious beaches.
Soak up the sun on a white beach in Lombok beside a traditional out-rigger fishing canoe. Cycle the dense rainforests with the noises of the jungle reverberating all around you. Spot wildlife unique to these islands such as the largest lizard in the world, the Komodo Dragon, and large copper orangutans. Feel the power of Mount Bromo's active volcano, billowing with white smoke high into the skyline.
Challenge your spirituality and explore the most long-standing and enigmatic Buddhist monument in Asia called Borobudur, located amongst bright green rice paddies and swaying palms.
The snorkeling and diving comes with shoals of glittery, whizzing fish and coral reefs, beneath the waves of Sulawesi’s immaculate white coastline.
Indonesia is just right for anything from family holidays to romantic getaways. True Luxury Travel will make it perfect for you.

One of the most crowded places in all of Asia, Java is also portrayed by its natural beauty. Its central zone is dominated by volcanoes, many of which are still evidently active. To the south of this mountainous spine is the homeland of the cultural Javanese and the epicenter of their arts, culture and language, characterized by the royal courts of Yogyakarta and Solo.
Sumatra is for travellers looking to escape the chaos of Java. An explorer’s joy, most of the island remains untouched. Most of the highlights are in the north at Bukit Lawang (a jungly river offering the best chance in Indonesia to see orang-utans in the wild).
Good surfing, green rice fields and exceptionally artistic culture is the small volcanic island of Bali. 3.5 million people with a Hindu society, Bali has long been Indonesia’s premier tourist destination. Although it suffers the dreadful problems of commercialization, Bali’s original charm is still much in evidence. It has unique temples on the mountainous, river-rich landscape of the interior.
Thirty-five kilometres east of Bali, Islamic Lombok is occupied by Sasak people. It differs considerably from its Hindu neighbour, with lots of cavernous spaces and unspoilt beaches, and much less traffic little pollution. The tourist facilities are less widespread and public transport rarer. The island’s northern area is dominated by the awesome bulk of Gunung Rinjani, and trekking here is the main reason tourists may go to Lombok.
Komodo and Rinca
Off the east coast of Sumbawa lies Komodo National Park the home to the Komodo dragon, which lives nowhere else. The south coast of the main island is lined with impressive, mostly dormant volcanoes, the north with mainly dusty plains, and rice fields. The two most-visited islands in the national park are Komodo and Rinca.
A fertile, mountainous isle between the Savu and Flores seas. Flores arguably creates the most captivating landscape in the archipelago. The volcanic mountains soar to 2500m, and torrential wet seasons result in a lushness that differenciates Flores from its charred neighbours. It also differs religiously – 95 percent of islanders are Catholic. The most spectacular sight in Flores is magnificent Kelimutu, near Moni, northeast of Ende.
Waingapu, the capital of Sumba, is well known for manufacturing the finest fabric in Indonesia. A little further out at Rende and Melolo sit stone tombs with strange carvings, and in other villages on the east coast one can find skilled weaving, traditional buildings and deserted beaches. The east of the island is made up of arid grasslands and a limestone highland, while the west is fertile and green, with rolling hills and a long rainy season.

The risks to health whilst travelling will vary between individuals and many issues need to be taken into account, e.g. activities abroad, length of stay and general health of the traveller. It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel. They will assess your particular health risks before recommending vaccines and /or antimalarial tablets. This is also a good opportunity to discuss important travel health issues including safe food and water, accidents, sun exposure and insect bites. Many of the problems experienced by travellers cannot be prevented by vaccinations and other preventive measures need to be taken.
Comprehensive travel insurance is essential, including medical cover. We also highly recommend trip cancellation cover. You are 100% financially protected through our membership of the Travel Trust Association.
You don’t need a visa to enter Indonesia for visits of up to 30 days. Visa-free visits can’t be extended or transferred to another type of visa. For a list of airports, seaports and land border crossings for entering/exiting Indonesia under this visa waiver scheme, and more information about entry requirements, visit the website of the Indonesian Embassy in London or your nearest Indonesian embassy.
If you’re travelling to Indonesia for more than 30 days, you should apply for a visa before you travel, or get a visa on arrival at a cost of US$35, or the equivalent in Indonesian rupiah. This type of visa is valid for 30 days, and can be extended once (for a maximum of 30 days) by applying to an immigration office within Indonesia.
Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of your departure from Indonesia.
