Travel Forums Asia Indonesia in 3-weeks...Where to visit?

Hi,

I'll be travelling to Indonesia in January 2014 for 3 weeks, but I'm undecided of where to visit.

I'd really like to go to the following places but I know I have no where near enough time to cover all. Are there any easy routes to try and visit all three islands in 3 weeks?

Sumatra- Lake Toba, Bukit Lawang, Pulau Weh,

Java-Borobudur, Mount Bromo

Bali-Ubud.

I'm not too fussed about going to Kuta in Bali, but would like to get some beach, cultural and adventure time during my stay in Indonesia. Anyone been to the places I've mentioned?

Thanks
Pali

I didn't go to Sumatra but spent 2 weeks in Java and Bali. Borobudur and Mount Bromo are definitely must - sees, and I'd also recommend a couple of days in Yogyakarta.

Lovina is a nice little beach town in Bali - much nicer than Kuta and with some good snorkeling off the coast.

My comment same as above but additionally I need you spend a time in Bali much more than a week.

I supposed you take a ferry between the islands so lovina have a ferry pier from Java island.

Anyway, if you need flight by plane you must heading to Kuta beach there is an int'l airport Nguralai there.

from Bali airport there are many flight to any country and welcome to Thailand there are 2 flights service.

Hi,

Your itinerary sounds nice!
Concerning easy ways to hop from island to island, i suggest the plane unfortunately. You can find cheap flights from a destination to another domestically.
In 3 weeks you'll have time to enjoy this beautiful country. I guess if you had more time (or change your mind), you could visit the East side of Indonesia, with Flores and Komodo which are amazing destinations and not too touristic yet.
The way from Flores to Komodo by boat is full of incredible snorkeling and scuba diving spots.
And there's also the North Part of Indonesia with Manado & the Bunaken area in Sulawesi.. Also amazing and very relaxing with a lot of dolphins around..

You'll have an amazing time there with, hopefully, not too much rain :)

i will be Bali from Jan. 18th to March 1st.
most of the times i will be in Ubud
i will be free after 5pm
i would like to explore more and deep about Bali
maybe book a hotel with others
i have already interested in some famous hotels
but i can only afford the cheapest of this hotels i suppose
willing to make friends and be foodies together enjoy foods here

I'd like to find someone who is interested in going to Jimbaran to see the sunset and eat BBQ together in Jan. 18th
it's better if u leave Ubud with me and come back Ubud with me in Jan. 18th

:) well i go solo and since Jan. 18th is my birthday, I really like to see the famous sunset and seafood BBQ there
therefore, if u are solo and interested in it, tell me~:)
