Lying southeast of Malaysia and Sumatera, south of Kalimantan and west of Bali; it is the fifth largest island in Indonesia, yet the most densely populated; especially in the nation’s capital, JAKARTA (formerly Batavia) on the northernmost tip of the island. Home to over 140 million people, the island of 127,569 sq. km is Indonesia’s most complex and culturally compelling island flanked by limestone ridges and lowlands with a longitudinal mountain chain surmounted by 121 volcanoes.
    Java is the historical epicentre of Indonesia; a magical and storied island, steeped in culture and shrouded in mysticism. A powerhouse on the modern stage, Java traces its influence back through the centuries in its artistry, traditions and architecture. This is a land of fire, stone and spices; home to volcanoes, palaces and Hindu-Buddhist relics that have witnessed the rise and fall of ancient civilizations, sultanates and empires.
    Heritage of Java takes you deep into the historical heartland of Indonesia, linking each of the major heritage hotspots that tell Java’s story. You will stay in hotels that have been specifically chosen for their historical significance, their architectural design and their proximity to areas of interest. This tour puts you in the centre of the action; a tactile and evocative journey back through the ages in the footsteps of sultans, pirates and pilgrims; into the heart of Java.

The smouldering cone of Bromo stands in a sea of ashen, volcanic sand, surrounded by the towering cliffs of the crater’s edge – giving it a luna-like landscape with epic proportions and breathtaking views. Situated in Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park to the southeast of Surabaya, it is the only conservation area in Indonesia that has a sand sea with total area of 5,250 hectares at an altitude of about 1,200m which also contains the highest mountain in Java, Mount Semeru (3,676m) in the south, along with four lakes and 50 rivers.
