The expedition was in the country where the water is turning upside down, on the sky is missing a big car, drivers go considerately, mad and on the left side, occasionally shaking the ground or explode a volcano and when the man leave the cash machine, is always a millionaire. For a while. But the Indonesians were the greatest miracle, their smiles, satisfaction, willingness and good mood.
Bali is Indonesia's most interesting island with the capital Denpasar. The air is interwoven with local Hinduism, which differs from classical Hinduism by the added elements of local traditional faith. What certainly Bali cannot deny is the magical nature. Both attract to the island not only a lot of tourists, but also people come here for spiritual renewal, life reboots or just a good rest.
This famous Indonesian island is often referred to as the pearl of Indonesia, a paradise on earth or a place with a magical atmosphere. And rightly so. The local nature is absolutely charming. Bali is especially popular for its rice terraces, but it can offer much more. Let's take a look.
The island of Bali does not have many well-known cities to attract tourists, more visitors are attracted by its picturesque nature and beautiful temples. However, when you arrive in Bali, it would be a pity to omit them completely from your itinerary.
Nusa Penida is situated southeast from very famous Indonesian island of Bali. It features regular ferry lines. Tourist infrastructure there is quite underdeveloped yet it has been improving. Should you prefer less tourist crowded areas and you like amazing vistas and great beaches, I recommend you to spend there three days at least.
Goa Giri Putri cave temple sometimes go by the name of nearby village of Goa Karangsari. High limestone caves are situated on the east coast of Nusa Penida, half way between Sampalan and Suana. As this is a temple, you have to wear a sarog, a piece of cloth wrappend around your waist to cover your lower body. If you don't have one you may rent one for 5 000 IDR (about 10 CZK).
It is almost impossible to go to Indonesia and avoid the masses of tourists today. Most tourists end up on the islands of Bali or Gili, some of them continue to the island of Lombok, Java or Sumatra. Would you like to avoid these places? Are you looking for a bigger adventure? Then go even further and discover the natural beauty of Flores Island and its Komodo National Park.
We start our journey through western Malaysia a bit unusually, by going for three nights to the Indonesian city of Medan in North Sumatra. From the airport located in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur several times a day, the low-cost airline Air Asia flies, and in less than an hour you can reach Medan (specifically Kualanamu Airport). It is the largest Sumatran city, the fifth most populous city in Indonesia.
We start our month long trip across Indonesia in its capital city of Jakarta (Java island). We did our best to leave it as soon as possible. Our first stop was on Muria peninsula, central Java (it runs into the Java Sea in the north).
