Be it shopping in one of the most major cities in Asia or swimming in the largest natural volcanic lake, this place has all the thrills and adventure for every traveler. Here are few things you must do on your next trip to Indonesia.
Neka Art Museum is the creation of Suteja Neka, who was a private collector and dealer in Balinese art. The museum has diverse collections of things including art and crafts, numerous Balinese paintings along with a bookshop and a café. There are various sections of the museum which you can explore such as the Arie Smit Pavilion, The Lempad Pavilion and The Contemporary Indonesian Art Hall.
A very interesting and popular tourist attraction, Lake Toba is a natural lake in North Sumatra that sprung from the crater of a large dormant volcano. It is the largest volcanic lake in the world and also the largest in Indonesia. Visitors can either choose to try a variety of water sports on the lake or swim by themselves. Visiting the traditional houses of the locals called the Batak will be something new for you to explore.
One of the most fascinating things to do here is to explore the Komodo Island which is a group of islands located in Lesser Sunda. It’s the home of the fearsome Komodo dragons – the world’s largest lizards which have toxic saliva used to kill their prey by poisoning them. You can see these lizards by taking a tour of Komodo National Park which was established in 1980 to perform scientific studies, perform breeding programs as well as for their conservation.
Not many of us know this – Bukit Lawang is now one of the last few places where we can see Orangutans in their natural living habitat. Trekking in this jungle will be the best thing you’ve ever done in your life. It’s a four hour drive from the capital city Medan. You can do trekking by yourself or visit the Orangutan sanctuary to learn more about the conservation projects and habitat of this beautiful protected species.
Any local can tell you that Gianyar Night Market is the best place to try some of the best food in Bali. Numerous stalls are set-up every night in the centre which prepare mouth-watering and lip-smacking range of dishes. You might get confused to choose what to eat and what not to. We recommend checking out the place first and then choosing as per your liking. The best time to visit here is 2 hours after sunset.
Located in Magelang, Central Java, Borobudur Temple is a Buddhist temple famous among travellers staying in the neighbouring city of Yogyakarta as well as other places. This temple is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a central dome surrounded by 72 beautifully sculpted figures of Lord Buddha, which makes it the largest Buddhist temple on our planet. People not only come to worship but also to admire the scenery that stretches beyond the central temple complex.
Ubud is a town in the Gianyar regency and is considered to be the arts and culture hub of Bali. This town is very different from other areas of Bali. It does not have a beach but has lush forests located in the surrounding foothills, steep terraces and rice paddies. A place which is a heaven for art lovers, Ubud is now the house for the works of various prominent Balinese artists.
This place is a bonus for people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bali. Nusa Lembongan has become a popular tourist attraction in recent years. Offering a range of water sports such as swimming, snorkeling, diving and surfing, the place has various tourist attractions to showcase the local talent and places of interest.
