Need help planning 1 week Java itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 2 week vacation in Indonesia split between Bali and Java.
Here are my travel specs:
arrive DPS from CX 785 @3:00pm on Aug. 16
depart CGK on JL 726 @ 10:10pm on Sept. 1
These are award tix and doubt they can not be changed at this point. It took a lot of work to get them.
I thought maybe 6-7 nights on Bali split between 2 different locations, one of them Ubud. Then fly to Java, to Surabaya or Yogyakarta. Hire a driver/guide for the week. I've been in touch with Wiedy, the driver some of you have used. We'd fly to Jakarta on Sept. 1 to hook up with the JL flight home that night.

We like temples, villages, art and culture, cooking classes. Borobudur and Prambanam are on the must see list. We are both very fit and able to do some hiking and outdoor activities. I do not have a need to see Bromo at sunrise like it seems everyone who goes to Java does. We do not usually stay in 5 * hotels unless they are a bargain. Nice hotels with local flavor will do.

Here's 2 sample itineraries from a tour company, Exotissimo:
Day 1 arrive Yogyakarta overnight Yogya
Day 2 Yogya-Prambanan-Yogya overnight Yogya
Day 3 Yogya-Borobudur-Candirejo overnight Yogya
Day 4 Yogya-Kertosono (train)-Kediri-Mt. Kelud-Malang overnight Malang
Day 5 Malang-Mt. Bromo-Surabaya overnigt Surabaya
Day 6 Surabaya-fly to Jakarta for JL flight

or
Day 1 arrive Yogyakarta afternoon overnight Yogya
Day 2 Yogya-Prambanan-Yogya overnight Yogya
Day 3 Yogya-Borobudur-Candirejo overnight Yogya
Day 4 Yogyakarta-Borobudur-Candi Rejo-Ambarawa 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

What do you think about a plan like one of these? I can tweak any itinery to our interests with the driver.
