50 days, Itinerary in Indonesia

I spent almost two months in Indonesia between Java, Bali, Lombok and small islands all around (Lembongan and Gili) two years ago. And since I have returned twice. Sumptuous landscapes and people so kind and full of life! I even think I fell in love with this country so vast it would take more than a lifetime to see everything.

In two months, that first trip, I wanted to take my time, don’t go too fast! Here is my Dayney!

Mountains, white sand, easy and difficult dive, rice fields, waterfalls, animals in the wild, all the beauties of nature in one place, only a few kilometers apart. On one island to another, traditions change, the scenery too. Some are genuine, others more tourist. There is a place for everyone.

if we had to do it again

  • I will not spend as much time in Kuta Bali or Gili and I will have privileged visiting Lombok (especially the south).
  • I will take a motobike on Lembongan rather than a bike because the “roads” are bumpy and tough ribs.
  • I will take more time to visit Bali with motobike (including Amed, Munduk and surroundings)
