Java is the most important island and with the highest population density island of Indonesia.

Although Bahasa Indonesia is the official language, Javanese is widely spoken together with other major languages and dialects.

I travelled overland from Jakarta to the eastern tipe of Java to take a boat across the Sunda Straits to Bali.

Java is a fascinating and culturally diverse islands with volcano tops, forested hills and beautiful beaches.

You have not been to Indonesia if you have not visit Java. Bali is like Hawaii whereas Java is like California and New York.

Do visit this fascinating land and island of Java.

    Thanks for the pages SLLiew. I am going to Indonesia but cannot make up my mind between staying on Java or going to Bali!

    Dozens of volcanoes, amazing scenic rides, largest Buddhist monument in the world and so on; Java is really a place to visit. Best. L.

    I believe Indonesia has so much to offer, Java & Borobudur being one of the many examples. Hope to make it there one day. Cheers, Pinar

    Borobudur --- hopefully I get to see this someday! You think it should have been among new seven wonders?

    Great overview of the information on Java! Mt. Bromo, Borobudur and Yogja were also places that fascinated me the most - I only wasn't lucky to see Ramayana at Prambanan :)
