Where’s good for nightlife?
Jakarta is the most Westernised and happening of all Indonesia’s cities with bars, discos and clubs. Or you could see the Wayang Kulit (Leather Puppet Shadow Play) – storylines are usually based on the Hindu epics.
Also see Wayang Orang (Dance Drama) and the Ramayana Ballet – most visitor-friendly places will have shows of these various cultural delights.
On Bali, Kuta Bay has wild resort night life. Lombok, Senggigi is the only place island with any energetic nightlife although the nearby Gili Islands are a haven for beach-loving socialites.
On Sumatra Samosir, a lake island, has long been Sumatra’s top travellers’ destination and has accommodation and eateries galore.
What’s the food like?
With such a diverse ethnic mix, Indonesia was always going to have a rich and varied cuisine. From the humblest street stall to the plushest restaurant there are very few places where the food is not a delight – if you like spicy cuisine.
The main influence is Chinese, with rice as the staple, and chilli prominent. The quality and range of fruit is mind-boggling – much of the produce is only available on the islands so eat your fill.
The Dutch spent a disproportionately large amount of energy building breweries during their colonial period and, as a result, Indonesian beer is very good indeed.
What should I buy?
Indonesia is a great place to buy arts and crafts with an amazing range of products at bargain prices. Wood carvings, batik, ikat (woven cloth) and pottery are all beautiful and excellent value.
Yogya is best place to shop in Java, whilst on Bali, Kuta’s Jl Legian has mile upon mile of enchanting shops. Always bargain – but remember that haggling is an art, not an argument.
What is there for children to do?
Take the kids to see it all at a glance at the Taman Mini (Indonesia in Miniature Park) in Jakarta. Kids should love all the puppet theatres, dancing and gamelan music (although their attention span may make their ‘love’ short-lived).
Bali resorts are mostly aimed at the 18-30 market, but it also has hotels with children’s facilities and babysitters – check with your tour operator. Java is also good for kids.
