Java, an island that is often forgotten due to the rising popularity of the island of Bali. And while Bali is truly stunning, travelers skipping Java are missing out. A large and vast island filled with vibrant cities and stunning views. Start your adventure in the country’s capital of Jakarta before making your way to the cultural capital of Java, Yogyakarta.
