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.

Our guide (Jun) in Jogjakarta and Borobudur was exceptionally good - excellent with our two boys (aged 5 and 3), really friendly and informative and added a lot of value. Our boat guide (Jack) was amazing too - he was brilliant with the boys, really thought about making the most of the 3 days, very flexible and really did everything possible to make sure we all had a great time.
