Java is the most dense island of Indonesia, with more than 143 million habitants. The island has many things to offer, varying from huge metropolis till beautifull mountains and rice fields. Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, is a very big world city with everything you can imagine. During our stay we discovered how to escape the heat and traffic, and where to go for a nice trip around Jakarta. Yogyakarta is a more quiet city compared to Jakarta and attracts therefore also more tourists. There is a lot to see in and around Yogyakarta and even Indonesians like to go on holiday to this place!
Travelling within Java is best, fastest, and cheapest by train. The fares and details of transport we describe here.
