Historic Sites Sightseeing Nature
Central Java, deemed to be the center of Javanese culture, centers on historical exploration. The towns in the region portray an interesting architectural aesthetic with influences from Chinese, Sundanese, and Arabian-Indonesian settlers showcased in town centers and market streets. Tourists often visit the state's famous World Heritage Sites to learn more about the Buddhist and Hindu dynasties that prospered on the island. Temple complexes now stand as impressive ruins of this era. Try the local cuisine of the region like lumpia (a hot spring roll) and bandeng presto (a dish made with milkfish). Add Central Java and other destinations to your itinerary using our Indonesia tourist route planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
