East Java Tour
East Java also called “Jawa Timur” in Indonesian, is the province with the most ruff landscape. It is covered with many mountains, still active vulcano’s and unspoiled nature. If you like to explore a part of Java which is less populated and where you can still visit nature with less tourists around you (next to the popular visited Bromo), then East Java is maybe the part of Java to visit for you.
The capital city of this province is Surabaya. Next to Java the biggest city on Java and unfortunately has the same traffic jam problems as Jakarta. But luckily this Island does not exist of Surabaya only and has some other way more interesting places to visit just as Malang, Blitar and Banyuwangi. Malang and Blitar have an interesting history and temples to visit, as Banyuwangi has next to the main harbor for leaving to Bali, has two really beautiful national parks.
Most people are familiar with east Java because of the famous Bromo and Ijen. These two main attractions have a unique volcano, moon look alike scenery. Although they are often visited by many tourists it is a must visit if you travel through East Java.
Less known places which are worth to visit are, Kalibaru with her many plantations, Sukamade to see the sea turtles laying their egs, Semeru mountain for hiking, Baluran National Park for its interesting wild life, Alas Purwo which is good for surfers, Pacitan known for her caves and surf beaches, and of course the Madura island well known for the famous traditional bull races. Our most favorite oart of East Java next to the main highlights as Bromo Sunrise and IJen Bluefire is a 2 Day tour by Kalibaru and Sukamade.
