Java, the land of volcanoes and thousand years old monuments, is the most populous island in Indonesia. Its diverse attractions range from unspoiled tropical beaches to active volcanoes, from quaint villages to noisy and crowded cities.

Indulge your cultural curiosity by visiting Surakarta (knows as Solo) and Yogyakarta, the center of Javanese culture. Grand and elegant Javanese Keraton architecture guards priceless royal heirlooms and precious antiques, such as the Keris. You also should not miss a visit to Candi Borobudur, one of the ancient wonders of the world, and the beautiful Hindu temple complex of Candi Prambanan near Yogyakarta.
