Java

3.9
Home to over half of Indonesia's population, the island of Java contains the national capital Jakarta, as well as soaring volcanoes, fertile rice paddies, and tiny villages virtually untouched by the modern world. A trip to Java takes you to one of the most densely populated places on the planet, where over 130 million people inhabit an area roughly the size of Greece. The political and economic heart of Indonesia, this island is home to giant cities with lively restaurant and art scenes. Do spend part of your Java vacation exploring the countryside as well: here you can discover sprawling national parks, ancient Buddhist temples, unspoiled rainforests, sandy beaches, and small communities living according to their centuries-old traditions. Add Java and other destinations in Indonesia to your travel plans using our Indonesia trip itinerary maker website.
