Discovery of Singapore, Java & Bali

Java - Singapore - Indonesia - Your tailor-made trip

Day 1

First moments in Asia
Welcome to Singapore, an elegant Southeast Asian metropolis! You meet your driver, and head to your accommodation. Without wasting time, you dive into the cultural heart of Singapore. Your walk first goes through the old Parliament building, not far from the National Gallery. Bridges, colonial buildings and lush tropical vegetation punctuate your route. Greet the famous Merlion, an icon of the city and a reminder of the humble fishing village that was previously Singapore. Rejuvenate in the "green lung" of the city, the Botanical Gardens and browse the neighbourhoods of China Town and Little India, popular districts with plenty of cultural wealth. Discover the technique of "Tarik tea", a drink loved by the inhabitants of the city. Return and overnight at the hotel.

We recommend our travellers to climb the iconic Sky Park at Marina Bay Sands, a platform that dominates the city from its height of 200 meters. Enjoy the 360 ​​degree view of the metropolis.
 
Day 2

Gardens by the Bay
This morning, start off by exploring the futuristic Gardens by the Bay. Divided into different zones, this unusual place in the middle of a bustling city brings you on a journey through various continents: the Flower Dome, for example, is a designed to mimic cooler climates and offers an extensive collection of plants come from all walks of life. The Cloud Forest impresses you with its 35m high waterfall nestled in lush vegetation. Enjoy a free afternoon to stroll through the city before returning to your hotel.
 
Day 3

Flight to Java
Your driver will pick you up from the hotel to bring you to Changi International Airport for your flight to Java, the most populated island in the world. On arrival, you meet your driver and take the road to Mount Bromo, a volcanic caldera. Go to bed early, because an early morning awakening awaits you tomorrow! Night at the hotel.
 
Day 4

Sunrise with a volcano view
You wake up in the early hours of the morning and hop on a jeep that will bring you to the top of Penenjakan Mountain. Wrap up warmly to comfortably wait for the sunrise. The sun peeks out timidly over the horizon, gradually illumimnating the silhouettes of the five volcanoes that sit in the middle of the caldera. You cross the lunar landscape of the sea of ​​sand, and begin the ascent of the famous Mount Bromo. After your well-deserved breakfast, you head east to reach Banyuwangi, where you spend the night. Again, better not to sleep too late!

Walking time: 30min
 
Day 5

Ascent of Ijen Volcano
In the night, for those who want to see the mystical blue flames, or in the morning for others, you start climbing Mount Ijen to reach its crater, "kawah" in Indonesian. After an impressive effort you finally see this magical crater, with its mesmerising opaque turquoise lake, as well as its sulphur mines, light yellow points where some workers are busy and from which a thick smoke of the same yellowish colour escapes. You cross the path of these brave porters who carry almost a hundred pounds of sulphur daily on their shoulders. You descend peacefully, pack your bags and take the ferry to the neighbouring island of Bali and head to your accommodation in Pemuteran.

Walking time: 1 hour
 
Day 6

Snorkelling on Menjangan Island
No need to wake up at dawn this morning, but a good breakfast is still necessary before your boat trip to Menjangan Island. Put on your fins and snorkel and hop into the water where you will be amazed by the beauty of the local seabed, rich in fish and corals of all shapes and colours. Return to your hotel in the early afternoon. The rest of the day is free and you can relax by the hotel pool.
 
Day 7

Hot springs, temples and lakes
Today, put on your swimsuit for a relaxing swim in the Banjar Hot Springs! Nestled in lush nature, the natural spring flows at about 38 degrees celcius, to the delight of your muscles! You then visit the only Buddhist temple in Bali, the temple of Brahmavihara. You pass the high lakes of Tamblingan and Buyan before stopping in front of Bratan Lake, where the legendary temple of Ulun Danu sits. You then continue south to Ubud, in the center of the island, where you spend the night.
 
Day 8

Tegallalang Rice Fields, Gunung Kawi Temple and Sacred Springs
Towards the north of Ubud is Tegallalang Road, known for its beautiful local handicrafts. It is this road that you take this morning to visit the rice fields of the same name, which seem to be hooked to each other forming a beautiful terrace. Next, visit the site of Gunung Kawi, a temple complex with 11th century rock carvings made in honor of King Anak Wungsu. Finally, watch the Balinese locals purify themselves at the sacred springs of Tirta Empul. Return to the hotel at the end of the day.
 
Day 9

Taman Ayun Royal Temple & Tanah Lot Water Temple
Today, you head south and make a first stop in Mengwi. You visit Taman Ayun, a temple complex with impressive Balinese architectural features, including many "merus", the principal shrine of Balinese temples with multi-tiered roofs of different levels that indicate the importance of the temple. Continue south to the coast, where you visit the famous temple of Tanah Lot, perched on its rocky outcrop, accessible by foot at low tide. You then continue to your hotel in Seminyak.
 
Day 10

Free day
You are free to wander as you wish: Seminyak is full of small restaurants, markets and boutique shops, which allow you to stock up on souvenirs. You can also choose to relax at the hotel pool or on a sunbed on one of the long beaches, sipping a coconut and watching the surfers. Do not miss the sunset!
 
Day 11

End of your trip
Enjoy a last swim or a Balinese massage before your departure. You pack your bags and meet your driver who will be waiting for you at the exit of the hotel to bring you to the Denpasar International Airport for your departure flight.
