Average time to visit

Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.

Starting in the island of Java to see the renowned Borobudur temple complex, this 12 night itinerary continues to Bali for further cultural exploration in Bali’s lush countryside before finishing with some time of Bali’s south coast.

One of South East Asia’s most impressive sites, Borobudur is the largest single Buddhist monument in the world – a particularly magical place to visit at sunrise.
