Please help with one month Indonesia itinerary!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I plan to visit Indonesia for 30 days this September/October and we’re looking for tips on itinerary planning. We are experienced travelers, and will plan most of this on our own, not with a tour. We prefer to be surrounded by locals, not other tourists, whenever possible. Here’s a list of what drew us to choose Indonesia:
- Wildlife: Orangutans, proboscus monkeys, tarsiers, komodo dragons, underwater life (we are certified divers).
- Culture: Food, massage, markets, people, temples.
- Scenery/photography: Volcanoes, rice paddies, water falls, caves.
From our reading so far, below are the islands we’re considering, and why. Please help us narrow it down! What should we eliminate/add?
- Borneo: Tanjung Puting (orangutans); Benjarmasin (floating market); Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary
- Java: Jakarta; Ujung Kulon National Park; Borobudur (temple); Prambanan (temple); Green Canyon, West Java (boat trip, cave, water falls); Mt. Bromo (volcano); Batu Karas (surf village)
- Bali: Besakih (temple); Ubud (culture); Tegallalang (rice paddies, touristy, but good scenery); Jatiluwih (rice paddies, further away, but less touristy); Tulamben (wreck dive); Menjangan (other diving)
