forget about Bali or Gili, go to Raja Ampat Island at Sorong Papua! (THE REAL HEAVEN ON EARTH!) this is the new top travel destination, and its one of top 3 for the best in the world! maybe its way more expensive, but i tell u its worth it!!

I’ve just got back from spending 3 and a half weeks travelling through Bali, Lombok and Java in Indonesia.
Budgest wise, if you’re coming from mainland SouthEast Asia then get prepared for a shock, stuff is easily double the price. I remember the first thing I went to book was a boat to Gili Trawangan and nearly having a heart attack when they were quoting $50 – after spending about £9 for boats between the islands in Thailand!
But of course there’s always the cheap way to do it, it’s just a bit harder.
I didn’t go to Flores but I’m gutted that I didn’t have the money to get there, everyone says amazing things about it.
The Gilis are just paradise, if you just want to chill for a few days then think about going to Gili Air instead of Gili Trawangan, accommodation was cheaper and it was like your own private desert island!
Lombok – the Rinjani trek is supposed to be one of the best ones in the world, but if you’re not feeling up for it (like I was) I’d suggest spending a night in Senaru, which is a little village up the mountain side, it’s beautiful and has breathtaking views. I also met some people who really enjoyed staying in Kuta on Lombok which is practically the polar opposite to Kuta on Bali.
I actually thought the Javanese were actually more grateful for the tourism than the Balinese and those on Lombok. I went during Ramadan so I think a lot of tourists had avoided Java, worrying that it would be hard to get by. I thought they seemed a bit more genuine than the Balinese.
Jogjakarta was actually my favourite city, and Prambanan was one of the most impressive monuments I saw on the trip. Sunrise over Mount Bromo was also a highlight!
Oh and one last suggestion, if you ever go to Sanur in Bali, book ahead and stay at Big Pineapple/Bali Best Hostel (it has two names) It was the nicest, friendliest place I stayed at for the whole trip. It’s run by an Australian and his Indonesian wife and they practically take you into their family for the time you’re there. Everyone I met there ended up staying longer than they meant to!
Ubud is nice.
I’m going to Indonesia for 3 weeks at the end of January and I will look up some of the tips on this page now as potential locations. Also, if you have any more to add please let me know!
