Husband and I will have 1 week or so to spend on Java as part of a 2 week Indonesia trip. We need to be in Jakarta on Sept. 1 for a 10:00pm flight home, but I do not want to spend any time there. I will be hiring a driver guide to take us around.
I saw this itinerary on a tour companies' web site as a suggested plan that looks interesting.
Day 1 arrive Yogyakarta afternoon overnight Yogya
Day 2 Yogya-Prambanan-Yogya overnight Yogya
Day 3 Yogya-city tour overnight Yogya
Day 4 Yogyakarta-- Borobudur - Candi Rejo - Ambarawa - Losari-overnight Losari
Day 5 Losari Plantation and Gedong Songo overnight Losari
Day 6 Losari- Solo-Sukuh Temple - overnight Blitar
Day 7 Blitar - Penataran Temples - overnight Malang
Day 8 Malang-Surabaya overnight Surabaya
Day 9 Surabaya-airport to fly to Jakarta for JL evening flight
Of course, this could be changed and customized for what we want to do. What do the experts think? Is this too much driving in a car? Should we end in Yogyakarta or Surabaya? There are many flights from both cities to Jakarta.
