Part of the sprawling Indonesian archipelago, these paradise islands invite you to share their magic and while they may be well-known for their stunning beaches, there is so much more than swaying palms. Baliís mountains, rice terraces and temples of the northern hills hold a charm all of their own; Lombok offers a Bali of yesteryear with its idyllic beauty and gentler pace; while Java complements perfectly with cultural and spellbinding wonders.
