10 days in Indonesia itenerary and best ideas

a lot of people get confused over which island they should visit first

how ever it’s quite easy to tell by appearance…they’re both beautiful islands with different landscapes, cultures, and attractions to explore

So it depends on what are you looking for

5 days on Java island and 5 days in Bali, is it possible?

10 days in Indonesia itenerary and best ideas

Yes, of course, it’s possible but you can’t be satisfied enjoying everything.

So for your first visit to Indonesia, I suggest that you spend your 10 days only on Java Island

Why? Because Bali island is so touristic and you can visit Bali anytime you want

But you will be more satisfied enjoying many things on the island of Java, although not all of them

The island of Java is huge and the distance from one tourist spot to another is quite far

very strategically located because it is in the city center and so close to the train station

You can stay for 2 days in Bandung

the spot that must be visited is Lembang, a plateau to the north of the city of Bandung

or you can go to the Kawah Putih ( White crater ) to the south

But you only choose either north or south because the location is far away and the traffic is congested
