Ever considered a holiday to Indonesia? Well here’s why you should. Its capital city, Jakarta, is one of the world’s fastest growing cities, with a melting pot of cultures, an incredible food scene and world class museums to discover. Then there are Indonesia’s islands, like the ever-popular Bali, and the Thousands Island group across Jakarta Bay, where you will be spoilt with beaches and snorkelling adventures. Brightsun Travel has put together a wide range of cheap holidays to Indonesia to make the most of its diverse urban centres and picturesque islands. Let’s start in Jakarta, a megacity in the Far East, where you could visit the National Gallery and National Museum and trace the evolution of mankind. Then on to Jakarta’s diverse neighbourhoods. Start in Chinatown and sample some of the city’s best food, or head to the up and coming Kuningan and Kemang neighbourhoods and dine at some of the city’s newest restaurants. Jakarta is also full of markets to explore, like the Pasar Baru, that could keep you entertained for days.
Indonesia also boasts some spectacular islands, the most popular of which has to be Bali. Bali’s capital is full of old crumbling temples and a thriving nightlife, whilst south of the city you will reach some of Indonesia’s best beach resorts. Head east and you could go on a diving adventure of a lifetime. Starting in the Butik Peninsula in Bali, a place where you will find some of Indonesia’s best beaches, you could simply laze on tropical white sand until your heart’s content. Or, head to Seminyak or Ubud, and roam art centres that featured in the Hollywood movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, and join in the fun at the region’s many bars and nightclubs. If it’s something a little more off the beaten track that interests you, Sideman in the east of Bali is a place where you can trek through rice paddies and explore palaces dating back centuries. Or, head to Jemeluk and Lipah Beaches, hire snorkelling gear, and explore Indonesia’s colourful reefs. Finally, head to West Bali National Park and you could surround yourself with nature.
