Part of the delight of Java lies in its sense of being off the tourist trail which is everpresent on Bali. Even so, there's more to recommend the island than just getting away from the crowds. The volcanic landscapes of East Java are stunning, and the temples around Jogjakarta are fantastic. Frankly, western Java (or its most-visited parts) are a bit of a letdown, and the big cities of the island are nightmares of traffic which are better avoided. Still, it's hard to argue with the temples of Prambanan or the eruptions of Mt. Bromo. Choose your itinerary carefully, and you'll enjoy Java.

The island of Java is one of the most densely populated regions on earth. Although this is hard to imagine when you're a few thousand feet overhead - it's nothing but a lush, green countryside of rice paddies, purple volcanoes and undulating hills of tea. A little closer and you'll find the Javanese to be some of the most hospitable in the Indonesian archipelago. The south coast of Java has world class surfing, the interior has got volcanoes and the Buddhist Ruins of Borobudur and the North Coast has THE Thousand Islands. Yes, the one the salad dressing was named for.
