Ultimate Indonesia  

Ultimate Indonesia   Ultimate Indonesia  

Indonesia is something of an ultimate destination if you like to mix relaxing on a beach, warm water lapping at your toes, with cultural visits to unchanged villages, shopping in bewildering markets and staring open-mouthed at fantastic carved temples.

Yogyakarta will introduce you to majestic volcanoes, Javanese meditation and unrivalled street food. Ubud will astonish you with its serene temples and tiered, hillside rice paddies. Lombok will show you some of the world’s best beaches.

And on the way you’ll have the opportunity to experience Singapore’s world class shopping and its incredible modern architecture, contrasting with its older Malay, Indian and Chinese quarters.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.

Singapore is a city state that has a world-wide reputation for clean streets, shopping and leading edge architecture. Some of the world’s most inspired and impressive buildings enhance the city’s skyline – from monuments in steel and glass, to a vast ‘liner’ standing in the heart of the metropolis on gigantic legs.

A fitting tribute to one of the world’s richest cities, with its busy sea port. On a more human scale are Singapore’s lively Chinese, Indian and Malay quarters, and its fantastic shopping.
