Indonesia's sprawling capital, Jakarta is a vast cultural melting pot which reflects the many faces of modern Indonesia.
Once known as the 'Paris of Java', Bandung still retains relics of its Dutch colonial past with some fine examples of architecture from that era.
A small fishing village popular with visitors looking for a coastal escape, Pangandaran offers fine-sand beaches, cottage industries and an impressive green canyon.
Java's cultural heart is an Intrepid favourite. From batik workshops to the nearby Hindu and Buddhist temples, 'Yogya' is one of South-East Asia's gems.
Situated on the slopes of the sacred Penanggungan volcano, the peaceful Seloliman Nature Reserve is home to an environmental education centre set amid rice paddies and rainforest.
Set in the timeless homeland of the Tenggerese, the smoking crater of Mt Bromo is a spectacular sight as it sits inside the massive Tengger caldera.
Surrounded by coffee planations and beautiful mountain scenery, Kalibaru is a small hillside village with a pleasant climate.
Home to one of Bali's most famous and venerated temples, Tanah Lot is a stunning sight best viewed at sunset.
As Bali's main arts and cultural centre, Ubud is a wonderful place to experience the magic that has made this such a popular travel destination.
Set in the foothills of Mt Agung, the peaceful and friendly village of Sidemen is proof that Bali has pockets completely away from the tourist trail.
An active volcano rising from a stark and spectacular caldera, Mt Batur is a stunning sight with the crystal-clear waters of Lake Batur below.
Famous for the dolphins that patrol its coast, Lovina is a great place for fine food, traditional massage or a big night out.
Nestled in Bali's cool and misty highlands, the mountain town of Bedugal lies in a beautiful region of volcanic lakes and ranges covered in lush vegetation.
Ubud has numerous art galleries and interesting museums to explore and plenty of woodwork, silverware and other handicraft shops to browse.
