We present some of the many activities and highlights in and around Ubud that you should definitely not want to miss on your trip to Bali.
Sustainable Tourism on Lombok
A trip to the remote areas of the island of Lombok is a special experience for every traveler to Indonesia. We got to know two still undiscovered places that are worth a trip: Seasot and Bilebante. These two village communities are supported by "Desa Wisata Hijau" and focus on ecotourism or sustainable tourism. On the way to the villages, one embarks on a new tourism route, i.e., travels off the beaten track and supports local communities in the process.
39 km west of Yogyakarta on Java in Indonesia is one of the largest Buddhist temple complexes in Southeast Asia. The temple of Borobodur rises impressively on a hill surrounded by mountains and vulcanos. This 9th century place of pilgrimage consists of several terraces with over 15.000 different reliefs and 420 stupas representing the path to nirvana.

FAQ About Indonesia Roundtrips
The numerous islands of Indonesia are partly located just above, below, or exactly on the equator, which is why the entire island state has a tropical climate with a dry and a rainy season. In this post, we share some of our experiences exploring Indonesia. What do we think is the best time to travel to Indonesia?
We recommend the months of May to October as the best time to travel. In June, for example, it is not yet too hot, and the sky, interspersed with scattered clouds, shines blue.
The paradise island of Bali is easy to travel to all year round. The dry season is noticeable here from April to October. However, even in the rainy season, the sun can often be seen: It usually rains only once a day for a maximum of two hours, shortly after which the wet roads are dried again by the sun. Our favorites are the months of April to June, as there are few other travelers at this time.
The dry season on Lombok is very pronounced, which means it is very hot, especially towards the end of the dry season. We recommend the months of June to September as the best time to travel to Lombok.
Sulawesi has so many island arms that the climate is very much influenced by local conditions, resulting in many different microclimates. The central area, the Toraja region, has several rainy seasons a year and is one of the rainiest areas in the country. Here it rains almost daily around 3 -16 pm. In the north and south, most rain falls in the months of November to March. Our travel tip is the months of June to August: in June there are still quite few travelers there and in July/ August many of the impressive funeral ceremonies take place.
In the north of the island, the rainy season starts early: the city of Medan is hit by heavier rain as early as October. The best time to travel in Sumatra is from May to September, the quieter months are May and June. Basically, it can rain all year round in Sumatra, it is mainly the strength of the rain that differs. As the temperatures are very constant all year round, the island can basically always be visited.
On the islands of Flores, Komodo and Rinca, the dry season lasts from May to mid-October. During this time, there is also a steady fresh wind blowing from Australia and it is not as humid. Regardless of the climate, there is a high tourist season from July to September, like everywhere else in Indonesia. Indonesia is perfect for a holiday in the summertime. Since the temperatures are usually not higher than 30 degrees, the island state can be explored very pleasantly during this time.
The southern part of the island of Borneo, Kalimantan, belongs to Indonesia. There is no distinct rainy season here: it is hot and humid all year round with quite a lot of rainfall. So the best time to travel here does not depend on the weather; we recommend travelling outside the high season (July, August, September).
The main religion in Indonesia is Muslim, which brings some important information with it, regarding festivities on Ramadan.
If you are travelling in Indonesia during the fasting month, many restaurants and food stalls, sometimes also shops, are closed during the day. The Chinese or Balinese restaurants and shops are of course excluded from this. After sunset, however, after the “Buka Puasa”, the locals wake up from their trance and set out for the breaking of the fast every evening: The warungs, street stalls and restaurants fill up.
Sometimes things are a little more relaxed in the cities and airports. You can also eat all day long in hotels or resorts, but you will hardly find any alcoholic beverages – as is the case outside Ramadan in this Muslim country.
