Indonesia Travel Guide

Travelling in Indonesia

  • How long should I spend in Indonesia?

    This really depends on how far you need to travel to get there and what you want to do. For those travelling from the UK or US it's a long journey, so you will want to spend at least 10 days exploring. At Kandoo Adventures we offer a 14 day exploration of the volcanoes of Java and Bali and an action packed 11 day multi-activity trip. 
  • Why is Indonesia so popular?

    Indonesia has an awful lot to attract foreign travellers! The food is incredible, the culture fascinating, there are ancient temples, dense jungles, active volcanoes and insane landscapes. Not to mention the beautiful beaches and warm turquoise water. This is an amazing country that offers something for everybody, so it is no surprise people are heading there from all over the globe. 
  • When is the best time to visit Indonesia?

    April to October is the dry season in Indonesia. This does not mean that there will be no rain at all, scattered showers can reasonably be expected. The islands are hot and humid with an average temperature between 20°C and 27°C. This is the best time to visit Indonesia but also the busiest. To get the best of the weather but avoid the crowds, consider travelling in April, May or late September.
  • Is Indonesia safe?

    Although Indonesia is not considered to be a dangerous place to travel, petty crime is common especially in urban areas. You should take the same precautions you would anywhere else in the world. Keep valuables on your person and out of sight in a zipped up pocket.
  • Do I need a visa for Indonesia?

    United States and UK passport holders do not require a visa to enter Indonesia for a period of less than 30 days. On arrival you will be granted a maximum 30 day stay in the country. This information may be subject to change, without notice, by the local authorities. It is your responsibility to check the latest travel requirements and information before departure.
