DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Experience the best that Singapore and Indonesia have to offer on this exciting and luxurious 13-day journey through Singapore’s past and present, and Indonesia’s nature and culture. You’ll go by plane, car, boat, and helicopter, from downtown Singapore, to Bali, Komodo and Rinca islands, and Yogyakarta in Indonesia. You’ll learn about the unique histories of both nations, while taking in the incredible beauty - from the beaches to the buildings, to the volcanoes and the quays - that will seem to follow you upon these travels. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Singapore

Land in Singapore, where you’ll be greeted and chauffeur-driven to check in at your luxurious hotel. You’ll spend the rest of the day exploring this unique and vibrant city - from Little India, to Arab Street, on to Chinatown, and rounding off the day aboard a traditional bumboat, cruising through Boat Quay, Circle Quay, and Marina Bay. Relax this evening back at your hotel.

DAY 2: Singapore

Start off your day with a hearty breakfast, before stepping back out into Singapore’s busy, clean streets. Singapore is home to a wide range of eclectic and unique architecture - spend some time marveling at the various traditional and modern buildings this morning, alongside a resident architectural expert. In the afternoon, Sands SkyPark is your destination. Located atop Marina Bay Sands, you can lounge in the rooftop infinity pool while taking in an exquisite view of the city.

DAY 3: Singapore

Learn how to cook up a storm, Singapore-style, at this morning’s cooking class. Next, you’ll head to the Asian Civilizations Museum, for a deep look into Asian cultures of centuries-past. The Singapore Zoo is your final stop of the day, where you’ll embark on a mystical night safari through the thick rainforest. Return to your hotel for a final night’s rest in Singapore.

DAY 4: Bali

Today you say goodbye to Singapore, as you are transferred to the airport and assisted with check-in for your flight to Indonesia. Arrive in Bali, a surfer’s paradise with its long stretches of beautiful coastline and powerful waves. You’ll transfer to Ubud, the cultural soul of Bali. Once settled in, start your Balinese experience by making friends with some majestic beasts: mahout training involves learning the basics of elephant handling, and you’ll even get to ride one through the jungle. In the afternoon, you’ll be off white-water rafting on the Telaga Waja River, and you’ll end the day with a private monk blessing. Return to your hotel for some relaxation - you’ll need it after such an adventurous day!

DAY 5: Bali

Learn the Balinese art of batik-making, mastering the dyeing technique that makes the process so special. Admire the works of some of Indonesia’s top artists at ARMA contemporary art museum, before heading out on a personalized shopping trip, crafted to focus on your interests and desires. Relax once again at your luxury hotel this evening.

DAY 6: Bali

Music and dance are integral aspects of Balinese culture; learn the basics of Balinese dancing and the gamelan - an ensemble of a variety of instruments including gongs and bamboo flutes. The Green School is next on the agenda; this is one of Bali’s top learning centers, on the banks of the Ayung River. Here, environmental-sustainability is the focal point, and students are taught an academically-rigorous curriculum, combined with experimental and creative learning. Tonight, enact a scene out of a romance film with a horseback ride along a long stretch of beach as the sun sinks into the sea. Return to your hotel for the evening.

DAY 7: Komodo Island

Hop on a private schooner to reach the famous islands of Komodo and Rinca, home to the goosebump-inducing Komodo Dragon, the largest living species of lizard today. Hike the trails and keep your eyes peeled for the creatures, which can often be found basking lazily in the sunlight. Rest easy off the banks of the island today, and out of the reach of Komodos, aboard your comfortable schooner.

DAY 8: Komodo Island

Circumnavigate Komodo National Park today, in search of secluded beaches and bays that are far off the tourist trail. Snorkel, dive, kayak, hike, or simply laze on the beach, until you’re ready to continue your quest for the perfect spot. The boat’s crew is at your disposal. Bed down tonight once again on the schooner, letting the water gently rock you to sleep.

DAY 9: Yogyakarta

Cross Komodo Island off your bucket list, and head to Java today, the world’s most populous island. Continue on to the Javanese Cultural Museum, where you’ll learn more about Java’s unique history. Solo, an ancient sultanate, is your next stop, followed by a visit to a Yogyakarta primary school. Spend the evening at your luxury hotel, Amanjiwo.

DAY 10: Yogyakarta

Explore more of the center of Javanese art and culture today. From Yogyakarta’s Kraton Palace to the Water Castle, the 18th century sultan's secret retreat. If you like, round off the day with a 40-minute drive to the stunning Prambanan Hindu temple, where you can watch the sun set over beautiful relief carvings or enjoy a traditional Indonesian ballet performance. After Prambanan, drive approximately 90 minutes back to Amanjiwo, stopping at a local restaurant along the way. 

DAY 11: Yogyakarta

Check out of Amanjiwo and head north for about 1 hour to see another side of Java. For many, Java is synonymous with coffee - find out why during your morning hike at the MesaStila coffee plantation. Ambarawa Railway Museum is your next stop, where you can check out a collection of steam locomotives. Stop by Tembi Cultural house and craft village this afternoon, followed by a trip to a local market. Check in to the MesaStila Resort for the evening. 

DAY 12: Departure

Drive approximately 90 minutes to Ahmad Yani International Airport for your international flight home.
