We will probably travel via a cruise and stop off at a few other destinations as part of a longer trip, but it's just as easy booking online and hotels such as the Aston Anyer Beach Hotel are available with Ocean views and Wifi at seriously bargain prices (I'm talking under £10). In fact, it is very possible to travel around Indonesia on a complete shoestring and spend less than £5 per day if needed.
Here are the top 5 places I would love to visit whilst travelling through Indonesia:-
Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary
The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud is dedicated to conservation of the area and is a research centre specialising in monkey behaviour. There are around 600 monkeys living in the forest and visitors are able to walk through the trees and observe the monkeys in their natural environment.
Of course food always features high on my list for reasons to travel somewhere and Indonesia is no different. Indonesian cuisine features complex flavours and spices and varies depending on which area you are visiting. An example of a popular dish would be Nasi goreng (fried rice) with Chicken and Satay sauce. You can dine in 5* restaurants or shacks on the beach in Indonesia, I am planning on doing both!
So there you have my top 5 reasons to visit Indonesia. Sometimes I wish I could fast forward time and visit now! If you've visited, I'd love to hear your tips too.
