Java is an Indonesian island of dramatic scenery, incredible culture, and an even year round climate. Central Java is the cultural and artistic hub of the region, and it should not be underestimated how much time you will need to see the depth of interest that may be found here. Yogyakarta is home to the royal capital, a palace in a city, within a city. Solo has a creative legacy and you will find classic Javanese dance and art flourishing. Rural villages in Central Java often host celebrations of Gamelan music, dancing and a host of other cultural festivities – these are well worth seeking out. Temples in the region are often ancient and invariably you’ll find them situated in outstanding positions with far-reaching views; this doubles your pleasure, with hiking in the same area.
