Traverse Java by Rail,
Info : Traverse Java by Rail
A great way to see the stunning scenery of Java is to take one of the trains that roll through the volcanic peaks and paddy fields covering the island. The first class executive carriage on an inter city train is very comfortable, with air conditioning and reclining airline style seats. If you are in a group the seats can also be spun around so that four face each another. While they do not travel at the speed of the modern railway systems elsewhere in the world, the trains generally do run on time and and it’s quicker and more fun than travelling by car. The lush green fields and dramatic volcanic peaks on Java create a unique and spectacular setting and the train is a great way to take it in. If appropriate, a lunch will also be included and the food is surprisingly good.

Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
