It may be a backpacker’s paradise with its thousands and thousands of islands and laidback lifestyle, but if you’re in search of luxury in Indonesia, you needn’t look far. This sovereign state and archipelago is filled with amazing sights that will blow you away; volcanic backdrops and dramatic temple ruins, paradise beaches and world class diving destinations, idyllic islands and beautiful wildlife. If you’re on a luxury tour of Indonesia, here are 9 unmissable sights to see along the way.
1. Gili Meno Island
If you’re looking for a little piece of heaven, visit the idyllic island of Gili Meno. Part of a three-island mini archipelago, Gili Meno is the smallest and by far the most peaceful. The best place to sunbathe is the Southern part of the island where your day will be completely undisturbed, yet there are still a number of cafes and restaurants close by for refuelling.
This majestic monument is said to be “the Angkor Wat of Indonesia”; having survived terrorist attacks, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, this huge Buddhist shrine still stands with grandeur. Spend a few days exploring the region, which is known to be one of the country’s most important religious and historical districts.
