I am going to Indonesia for just under a month at the beginning of June and i would just like to hear the advice of people who have been and experienced it first hand. I have read the 2 year old thread in /r/travel, when Indonesia was “Destination of the week”, but i would still appreciate some more information.
Things i like;
Being in places which are still busy and have a lot of things to do, but are not overrun with touristy things, which i feel drains the local feel.
I am also interested in exploring, whether this be through hiring bikes for the day and seeing what i could find, or organised excursions which would take me to more remote places. Does anyone have any particular excursions that they could recommend? (Can be day excursions or longer)
I also enjoy lying by the beach and doing nothing so i guess i am asking for any help with all aspects of Indonesia, as i want to experience as much as possible.
