London - Singapore - Yogyakarta

Catch a flight from London to Singapore, connecting on to Yogyakarta on the Indonesian island of Java. You’ll be met at the airport and taken to Plataran Borobudur which sits amidst the teak forests, volcanic peaks and Menorah Hills of central Java. From your hotel you’ll have a fine view of the iconic Borobudur Temple, the largest Buddhist temple in the world and a must-visit for any traveller to Indonesia.

 

A city tour will show you stunning attractions like the Royal Palace, but there’s also impressive shrines, bustling handicraft markets and delicious Javanese street food to discover. You could take an angong – or bicycle – ride to nearby villages to immerse yourself in the local culture, or learn how to prepare a delicious Balinese meal with a cookery class.

 

Stay: Three nights in a garden plunge pool villa at Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa – bed & breakfast

Ubud

This morning you’ll have time to visit Prambanan, a Hindu temple compound dating back to the 9th century, before boarding a flight to Bali. Upon arrival you’ll drive through sumptuous scenery to the cultural capital of the island – Ubud. Even the outskirts of this astonishing city are picturesque; comprising tier after tier of lush rice paddies marching off into the blue distance.

 

The town itself features meticulously carved temples with lotus pools and decorative dragons – not to mention a centuries-old market place, surrounded by handicraft shops, galleries and silversmith workshops. The nightlife here is vivid, with traditional dancing, fine restaurants and colourful ceremonies. During your stay you’ll enjoy a tour of the surrounding countryside, plus a trip to the food market where you can sample a range of local delicacies. Don’t miss out on an early morning hike up Mount Batur to be rewarded by a truly sensational sunrise.

Jimbaran

Now you have time to luxuriate on one of the glorious beaches for which Indonesia is famed. You’ll transfer to the coastal resort of Jimbaran – stopping en route at the temple of Tanah Lot – where you’ll be staying on the white sands of Jimbaran Bay. As well as a soft sanded beach, the waters here are warm, calm and perfect for swimming. Over the next few days you’ll enjoy a romantic sunset cruise around Jimbaran Bay and observe a traditional Balinese Kecak dance.

 

When you’re not lounging by the hotel’s lake-sized pool you can stroll along the golden sands to find bustling fish and fruit markets and local beachside restaurants. Rise early to watch fisherman returning to shore with their catch, which is then served fresh from stalls right on the beach.    

 

Stay: Four nights in a garden view cottage suite at Belmond Jimbaran Puri – bed & breakfast
