"Of course, Bali is a very popular destination and sometimes it's packed with (too many) tourists, but it's touristy for a reason. It's such a beautiful island with so many picture-perfect places!"

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"My favourite activity in Bali was climbing Mount Batur in the middle of the night to watch the sunrise on top of the volcano. We were even lucky enough to see Mount Rinjani on Lombok in the distance! "

Must pack items for Bali

"Don't forget to bring warmer clothes! Especially in Northern Bali, it can get colder and you will need a jacket for sure! This photo was taken on top of a mountain and trust me, it was pretty cold..."

Bonus...

"Combine your Bali trip with a few days on Nusa Penida. Every photographer wants to take a photo of the T-rex-shaped cliff but... watch out when flying your drone. The signal is very sketchy!"

Active Adventures

What do you love most about Java?

"Java is a true hidden gem where you can still experience the real Indonesia and its culture, without the mass tourism of Bali."

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"While Mt. Bromo is the most famous volcano to visit on Java, Ijen Crater is definitely my favourite! Start hiking at 2 am with a gas mask around your neck and wait for sunrise on top of the crater ring."

"YES! I had the best time on the undiscovered island of Karimunjawa. It's an absolute must when visiting Java!"

What is your wildest memory of your time on Java?

"After watching the sunrise at Mt. Bromo, we were driving through the Black Sand Dessert and I was flying my drone while sitting on top of the Jeep with 2 of my friends. I will never forget that!"

@ck_the_explorer's Top Tips

"Views like this are found by hiking up to Klakkur, a viewpoint near Klaksvik in the Faroe Islands. Seeing the salmon cages in the distance and Faroe's 2nd largest city is quite the experience."
