Thinking about Java.

Jump to last reply

Another preliminary planning thread for Java (plus Penang).

I'm considering central and eastern Java, plus Penang in Malaysia for May 2016. We have about 3 weeks, although can be flexible. Our interests are similar to kja (with the great and specific thread) although perhaps we have less energy for climbing/hiking.

It's easy to get from home to KL for an onward flight to Penang, we would spend 3 or 4 nights in Penang, then we're considering catching a day time train to KL. Has anyone experience here ? Is the scenery worth the 5 + hour journey ?

We would then fly from KL to Yogyakarta to see Borobudur, Prambanam and perhaps Mt Bromo and ijen. Thinking 12 nights, how should I split them ? Any accomodation recommendations? We like small boutique type places where you're not a number.

Ideally we'd like to fly home from Denpasar, as it's only 5.5 hours to Brisbane. How is it to travel from the ferry port on Java to DPS ?
Crellston, I think you said the bus was a long ride and you could have spent some time in Permuteran.....we could probably add a night here to break the journey a bit.
The alternative is back tracking and then flying from Jakarta.
Thoughts from those who've been ?
