One of the 17.508 Indonesian islands: Java

Indonesia has more than 17.000 islands... How should am I supposed to find my way there? Well, start by the beginning and visit the arrival port, Jakarta.

I was still hesitating where to go next: West to the Sumatra island or East accross Java to Bali... I eventually chose the first transport leaving jakarta, a train the next morning heading East to Yogyakarta:

Near there is active Merapi volcano:

and the Parangtritis beach not too far away, just a couple of kilometers away from Nancy and Metz in Lorraine, France:

And the is also the Borobudur buddist temple, which I highly recommand to visit while it is pouring down:

Moving further to the East of Java is Mount Bromo, another volcano better to visit at sunrise and so wake up a 3:00am... Luckily there weren't any clouds or I would have been very grumpy to be up that early for nothing...

East of Bromo is another volcano, the Ijen where minors go inside the magnificient crater close to a beautiful turquoise lac to dig sulfur in the fumes and carry it back on their shoulder in big baskets. I guess you would really want to see this. Well, me too, but the local travel agency I booked the ticket with did not find useful to tell us the Ijen was closed a week ago because of the toxic sulfur smokes and sold the ticket anyway. So I took just a couple of pictures for the road around there.

Time to leave Java and take the ferry to Bali...

Dear travellerspoint blogger,

Luckyly me that I found your interesting blog. I am from Indonesia. I would like to have a survey about Indonesian Tourism Branding. So, I would like to request to the blogger who have been to Indonesia to fill my questionnaire (Non Indonesian Citizens only): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?fromEmail=true&formkey=dEo1LWtXc2txWVZLRDh0RUNRcWtEVFE6MQ

I would like to appreciate your participation in this survey, which should take just over 5-10 minutes to complete.

Regards
