From the fervent pace of Jakarta to the back alleys of Ubud, the islands of Bali and Java are Indonesia’s most celebrated duo – a treasure trove of beautiful beaches, rolling hills and dynamic cities. Be charmed by Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage, witness traditional dance performances and explore ornate temples. Get to the heart of life on this famous archipelago by visiting rice paddies and remote villages and learning about the region’s traditional arts and crafts. And that’s not all – you’ll also join royalty at a palace in Ubud for a special dinner and traditional dance performance. If you don’t already have Indonesia in your heart, this trip will certainly have you planning your return!

Why you'll love this trip
  • Board a private yacht and take in Bali’s breathtaking southern coastline around Nusa Dua and the Bukit Peninsula as you watch the sunset and enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner.
  • Discover Java and Bali’s culture and traditions during exclusive activities like a Ramayana ballet and Balinese Legong dance performance, a storytelling lunch and a purification blessing.
  • Immerse yourself in the stories of the royal family and learn about Bali’s cultural traditions and royal family life as you dine on a meal fit for a king at a royal palace in Ubud.
  • Learn about local village life with village visits that include strolling through rice fields, learning about jewellery and crafts, and whipping up local specialties at an authentic cooking class.
  • Spend three nights at your tranquil Feature Stay – Ubud Village Hotel – surrounded by tropical foliage and the sound of birds. Located on Monkey Forest Road, this conveniently located oasis offers a perfect place to relax in the pool after long days exploring the sites and culture of Bali.

Is this trip right for you?

12 days premium Indonesia was just a perfect trip, perfect itinerary, reasonably priced, very good hotel stays and good food. Just make sure to add 2 more days at the end of your trip in Bali as the Bali side of the itinerary does not include lots of popular places due to it being super busy with long queues. So you can explore that on your own after the trip ends. But overall I highly recommend this trip.

Ari was one of the best tour leaders I've had with Intrepid! The trip was great (including food and driver) - I only wish the trip itinerary allowed for more time to enjoy the pools and beaches.
