What’s Special about Java?

In Java, it’s easy to take a walk on the wild side, dive into local culture, or summit great heights. As if active volcanoes, white-sand beaches, and oceans of emerald- hued rice paddies weren’t enough, our private Java tours serve up a hefty serving of cultural wonder, with traditional crafts such as batik, bold cuisines, and some of the world’s most precious archaeological relics. From coast to coast, Java offers eye- opening sites and experiences at every turn.


As the most populous island in Indonesia and, consequently, the world, Java is home to a worldly, witty people who have gracefully adapted to a mix of cultural influences. You’ll find plenty of character here!


The tropical temperatures of Java remain fairly constant year-round, with averages fluctuating between 22 to 29 degrees Celsius. While the wet season (October to April) can see daily rains, May to September is a wonderful time to visit.


Wonderfully charismatic restaurants, cafes, bars and lounges abound in Java’s main urban centers, namely Jakarta and Yogyakarta. The local coffee is to die for, and you’ll find unique performance arts, like traditional puppetry.


On a private Java tour, you’ll be steeped in local culture, from the daily customs of farmers to the bold flavors of the regional cuisine. Art lovers will appreciate the dizzying repertoire of music, arts and crafts.


Indonesian is spoken by the vast majority of Java’s inhabitants. Due to the island’s large mix of ethnic minorities, however, you’ll hear local languages as well. English is also widely spoken, especially in tourist destinations.


History is everywhere in Java. From the Hindu and Buddhist temples to the palaces of Islamic sultans, and from the architecture of Yogyakarta to the wide influence of the Dutch, Java’s people and places reveal the astonishing multiculturalism of Java.
