Itinerary Java-Bali-Lombok

Here’s the highlights of each city.

Jakarta (1-2 Days). (the melting pot of Indonesia): Monas, Kota (Old Jakarta), the nightlife in Jakarta or coffee and tea with Jakarta CSers (we are the main attractions…lol)
then take 2-3 hours trip (by car,shuttle bus, bus, train to Bandung)

Bandung (2-3 Days): Kawah Putih Ciwidey (White Crater), Tangkuban Perahu (Crater). dont forget to try the food here(Surabi Enhaii, Roemah Nenek, any Es Duren/Durian Ice Cream in Jalan Riau, Nasi Timbel Dago). lots of Fashion Factory Outlets here; if you are looking for branded clothes with cheap price, check the clothes before you buy)
optional (6 hours from Bandung by bus): Pangandaran Beach, Green Canyon(my fave), Batu Karas.
take a morning train to Yogyakarta (9 hours)


Yogyakarta (cultural city) 3-4 Days: Keraton (Palace), Water Castle, Borobudur, Prambanan.
optional (3 hours from Yogyakarta by bus): Dieng Plateau.

Surabaya (2-3 Days): The Sampoerna House Museum, try the food here (Rujak Cingur,Tahu Campur).
optional: Bromo (about 5 hours from Surabaya by car), Pulau Sempu/Sempu Island (4 hours from Surabaya by car), Kawah Ijen (Ijen Crater, but ive never been here).
(if you’re not goin to take the tour package) then take bus/plane from Surabaya to Denpasar,Bali

OR From Yogyakarta to Bromo (there are no direct public transport to Bromo from Yogya, have to take train/bus/plane first Surabaya-East Java then take buses to Bromo or it’s much easier just to take a package of Bromo+Bali in Yogyakarta, available in tourist information in Sosrowijayan road in Yogyakarta).

Bali: Beaches in Kuta, Uluwatu, Sanur, Amed, Cultural events in Ubud, Gitgit Waterfall,etc
then go to Lombok by bus+ferry or plane.

Lombok: Gili islands (Gili Trawangan,Gili Meno,Gili Air), Sengigi Beach, Kuta Lombok, Mount Rinjani,etc
then take a plane or bus from Lombok to Jakarta.

so the route is Jakarta-Bandung(+Pangandaran)-Yogyakarta-Surabaya/Bromo(+Sempu Island,Kawah Ijen)-Bali-Lombok-Jakarta..takes about 2-3 weeks

  1. Beaches in Bali are the best. Not too familiar with the other places, but next time I get a trip to Bali I will be right back at Sanur, a pristine whitesand paradise!
