As the main island of the archipelago, Java has a lot to offer. Home to about 60% of Indonesians and the hub of the political and economic life, it has more people, money, power and privilege than the rest of the country combined. For many Indonesians it sounds quite simple, it begins and ends with Java. The majority of big cities in Indonesia, such as the capital city Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Bandung, Semarang, and Surabaya, are located in Java.
To explore Java, the usual route is started from Jakarta, heading to Bogor, then continue to Bandung. Travel from Jakarta to Yogyakarta is usually done via the beach resort of Pangandaran. Yogyakarta is the cultural heartland of Java and main base to visit temples such as Borobudur and Prambanan. It is also easy to reach to the oldest Hindu temples in Dieng Plateau from Yogyakarta. You can also visit the exotic Karimunjawa Islands, which is located in the north of Jepara. Count in two or three weeks, and if time is very limited head straight to the impressive volcanic landscapes of Gunung Bromo in the East Java.
