Explore bustling Yogyakarta by bicycle rickshaw, delve into the spiritual side by visiting ancient Hindu and Buddhist temples, learn to prepare Indonesian specialties under the guidance of a local chef, snap photos of beautiful rice terraces and lush green jungles, stand in awe of soaring active volcanoes
If you’re looking to free your spiritual side–with a backdrop of stunning beaches and jungles–Bali and Java are waiting. Travel by bicycle rickshaw to local markets and workshops, and get your “om” on at the Borobudur temple. Participate in a traditional cooking class with an expert chef. And of course, it wouldn’t be the full Balinese experience if you didn’t take some leisure time to relax on the picturesque beaches. It’s the perfect mix of beauty and Buddhist zen.
