Tailor-made Indonesia Holidays
With a population of well over 260 million people, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world. Not that you’d know it when you’re lazing on a white-sand beach in Lombok, mind you. In fact, only 1% of the population live in Bali and even less in Lombok, making these the perfect islands to truly get away from it all. It’s not just about beach holidays here either, with diving, snorkelling and surfing all popular pastimes, as well as searching for dolphins and Komodo dragons. Inland too, the 17,500 islands are coated with thick jungles, volcanic peaks and vivid green rice terraces hiding temples, shrines and pagodas galore. This unique mix of coast, nature and culture make Indonesia one of Asia’s most exciting and diverse holiday destinations.

Where to Go in Indonesia
The majority of the holiday action in Indonesia takes place in Bali, where you’ll find lively nightlife, a wealth of adventure activities, great beaches and captivating culture. Bali isn’t the only island to visit within the country. The volcanic island of Lombok to the east of Bali promises miles of verdant landscapes, pristine coves and tranquil hillsides. Just off the coast of Lombok, and easily visited on a day trip if you don’t fancy staying, the three Gili Islands are a fantastic snorkelling and diving spot, especially if you’re hoping to spot a turtle. Gili Trawangan, also known as Gili T, is the largest and liveliest of the three, packed with cool bars and good restaurants. Gili Air is the most off-the-beaten track, fringed by plenty of seafood cafes, while laid-back Gili Air, the smallest, is also the most peaceful and romantic.
Indonesia Holiday Types
Naturally a holiday to Indonesia should include some beach time, but it’s not the only type of holiday you can enjoy. From tranquil countryside to charming culture, delicious local food and luxurious resorts, we have a great range of holiday types to show you the best of Indonesia.

When to Go to Indonesia
With its tropical climate, Indonesia is hot and humid all year round, with temperatures rarely dropping below 30°C. Most visitors come in the dry season from April to October. This season is especially popular, although if you visit in September and October it’s possible to avoid the crowds. The wet season takes place from November to March with 30°C temperatures and high humidity levels, so breezy coastal areas are best for cooling off. This is a great time to tour the temples and highlands, as both will be cooler and more peaceful than in the dry season, and the interior rice terraces and forests are a riot of life and colour.
