The culture of Java was fascinating & we did, as ever with Explore, cover a great deal of ground. Borobodur & Prambanan were very interesting & as usual, I wish I had done some homework before the trip. The walk in the lush countryside on the way to Tawang mangu was lovely, though it was sad that we walked the last section in darkness. Perhaps most fascinating was just seeing everyday life whether in the villages or the workshops along the way. For me, Bromo was a disappointment. The accommodation was poor & the minibus that took us there, probably dangerous. The sunrise excursion took involved hundreds if not thousands of early risers!
Bali was also a disappointment because it is now so popular. Ubud is very crowded although the paddy fields still retain some of their old charm. Sanur was pleasant.
I wonder if it might be worth looking at this trip again in the light of development in Bali? Is Lombok an alternative?
Evy, our guide, was absolutely charming & very keen to make our holiday a success. However, she didn't offer very much background to the country; perhaps seeing herself more as a trip organiser than a guide. For me, the guide's insight is often a highlight.
Lastly, at 18, everyone felt the group was too large, which is another key element in determining success. We did fill in questionnaires at the end of the trip but they haven't been posted so perhaps were for the local agent only?
