While climbing volcanoes is possible, make sure to check if these are currently active or dormant. On your private Indonesia tour, your local guide and Trip Coordinator will be able to advise you accurately about volcanoes. We will customize your itinerary whenever necessary.

Women travelers

Indonesia is a very safe destination for female travelers however, traveling alone at night is not recommended. Avoid motorcycle taxis after dark. Do keep in mind that Indonesia is a Muslim country and dress conservatively when you are not at the beach.

In Traffic

Be extra careful while navigating traffic in Indonesia – the conditions can be quite chaotic compared to Western countries. Tourists should avoid riding in motorcycles even if you find locals using this mode of transport – these are known to cause accidents.
