Arrive at any time.
Tonight, visit the night market at Jalan Semarang. Head to the famous Soto Kesawan, a local institution famous for its namesake dish that's made of coconut milk with prawns, chicken, potato, and beef offal. You won't regret it.
Want some incredible views while you get to know your incredible group? Head to a skybar so you can quench your thirst while seeing the city from a bird's eye view.
Wake up with a morning tour of Medan. After, drive through the jungle to get to the small community of Tangkahan. Here, you can go hiking, dip into the nearby river or hot spring, or try the local delicacy dubbed "jungle food."
Hold on tight — today's ride might be a little bumpy. Once you arrive in Bukit Lawang, located close to Gunung Leuser National Park, visit the local spice garden or relax with some fresh coconut.
Head into the jungle today, if you'd like the chance to spot wildlife (like the elusive orangutan!) on a trek. Gunung Leuser National Park is also home to a handful of hanging bridges — great spots for some lush-looking photos.
This morning, get to know this mountain and market town on an orientation walk. Later, enjoy a free afternoon by stopping by the traditional market or relaxing at the local hot spring.
Today is yours. Hike the volcano Mt Sibayak, take in the golden Buddhist temple Taman Alam Lumbini, or stay put and keep getting to know the town.
The world's largest volcano lake, Lake Toba, awaits. Spend today at Sipiso Piso Waterfall (one of the tallest falls in Indonesia) or Bukit Indah Simarjarunjung, a spot famous for swings, selfies, and stellar views.
Chill out and swim in the warm waters of the lake or get a taste of local life by visiting the nearby Batak villages.
Drive through beautiful scenery on this travel day, stopping at the bustling city of Padang Sidempuan for the night. Not quite ready to move? Stop at Sipoholon Sulphur Hot Springs for more time to relax.
It's another travel day, dotted with stops for lunch, local spice gardens, and perhaps some pictures at Aek Sijonih Waterfalls. Get acquainted with Bukittingi on a brief orientation walk when you get there.
Today's a free day. Go see Sianok Canyon, the Japanese Caves built during World War II, or Pagaruyung Palace, one of the biggest and most beautiful in west Sumatra.
Head to Padang and settle in at your beachside hotel before trying some of the cuisine this city is most famous for. Beef rendang (a tender dry beef curry) is found all over Sumatra, but it's at its best in its home city.
Your final full day in Padang is a free one. Check out the nearby islands for unspoiled beaches and turquoise blue waters. Ah, paradise!
It's off to Jakarta, your starting point for exploring the island of Java.
Today, let the scenery guide you to some serenity. Floating villages, tea plantations, and a night at a local homestay —this side of paradise is looking mighty fine.
Get to know the city of Bandung today. After an orientation walk, get free time to visit charming Braga Street for its shopping and cafés, or see the Angklung Music Orchestra and hear the angklung, a traditional instrument made of bamboo pipes, live.
Watch the world go by on a scenic train ride to Yogyakarta. Once you arrive, and if you're not feeling too beat, check out Sosrowijayan and Prawirotaman Streets for unwinding with drinks and local eats.
There's more to discover in Yogyakarta today! See some Javanese temples, the volcanic Mt Merapi, try street food like gudeg (curry made from unripe jackfruit), or soak in the last rays of the sun at the stunning Buddhist Borobudur temple complex — and make sure you don't forget your camera.
Take the scenic route to Ngadas via train and private vehicle. Here, you'll spend the evening at a local G Adventures-supported community homestay.
Get a taste of local culture with a home-cooked dinner and time with a community leader to learn about the region's unique customs and history.
Today's for reaching new heights. Start the day with a trek along the Ancestor Trail to Mt Bromo, led by a local guide trained through the G Adventures-supported capacity building program. Then get a chance to hike to the volcano's crater (and take some pictures!) before going on to the hotel.
Skip sleeping in today for a pre-dawn hike across the Sea of Sand to Mt Bromo, where you can catch a final glimpse of the moon before the sunrise. Stop to breathe it all in before you head to a beachside surf camp.
On your way to Mt Bromo, catch a breath and see the local Buddhist Tenggerese giving offerings to the Supreme God Hyang Widi Wasa.
Wake up and catch a wave on a morning surf lesson, then take the rest of the day to explore the nearby fishing village, surf some more, or rest easy in a beachside hammock.
Head back to Bali for a chill day of relaxing on the beach. Sit back, grab a drink, and soak up some sunshine. This is the place for it.
No need to say goodbye to the beach just yet — it's another day of chilling out in Bali. If you'd like, break up the beachside naps with a snorkelling or diving trip to Menjangan Island.
Take it easy this morning before we cross rich tropical jungle, idyllic rice fields, and more to head to Kuta. Spend the evening getting to know Legian Street, the legendary party street. We hope you got to catch up on sleep on the drive over — you're going to need it.
Today, it's time to say goodbye to your group of newfound friends as the tour ends. Be sure to sneak in some last-minute photos and cheers before you head on your way.
