Reasons to Visit
Heading up Krakatau is like trekking over Mars and as the guides tell you once you get half way: "No further or our boots melt". The basic nature of camping out on the island is outshone by the fact you will probably be the only people staying overnight and will be sleeping just metres from the ocean in the shadow of a volcano. A beautiful coral reef around one side of the island offers excellent snorkelling and the views over to the peak of the smoking Anak Krakatau are superb.
The most obvious choice for a beach destination in Indonesia would be the island of Bali. Places like Seminyak, Sanur and Jimbiran are idyllic retreats.
Indonesia is scattered with many temples and ancient monuments. Perhaps the most famous is the vast pyramidal structure of Borobudur, considered to be one of Southeast Asia’s greatest religious relics. Hundreds of Buddha images stare impassively out over the plains and the detailed galleries and terraces that lead up to its central stupa tell tales of ancient gods and battles.
There is never really a 'bad' time to go to Indonesia and the weather is good during the British summer months unlike many other Southeast Asian destinations. Even during the wet season, the rain won't dampen the enjoyment of your holiday as it falls in short downpours and it means that the scenery around you will be lush and colourful.
Indonesia is home to some incredible wildlife and the national parks in Kalimantan and Sumatra are some of the best places to see it. Trek through jungles, rivers and waterfalls on foot or by elephant to discover the wonders of nature from the orang-utan to the world's largest flower.

The beautiful fishing village of Tembok is located on the northeast coast of Bali.
Inland, gentle mountains covered in brilliant green paddy fields dominate the skyline and out to sea the warm blue waters of the Indian ocean lap the sun kissed shores.
Traditional occupations such as fishing and farming take precedence here and Balinese arts such as dancing and martial arts are practiced in the area. The local jukong boats can be seen rolling in to shore early in the mornings and the villagers come out to help haul in the fresh catches.
Only a little over an hour from the cultural centre of Ubud, mountain scenery of Lake and Mount Batur, and the famous ship wreck of Tulamben.
Tembok is a great base to explore Bali's tranquil north-eastern region.
