Family Indonesia

Indonesia is the gift that keeps on giving for all-comers, but an Indonesia family holiday in particular is a sure-fire winner. As family holiday specialists, and great lovers of Indonesia, we’re confident we can put together a family holiday of a lifetime.

Our team of Asia experts are on hand to tailor-make the ultimate Indonesia family holiday, be that island-hopping to experience Indonesia's remarkable diversity, or staying put on one island to dig a little deeper and really get to the root of what makes a place so special. Whatever you choose to do, if you book with Original Travel you and the family will benefit from our exclusive additional services, including fast-track check-in and security at the airport, and lounge access (even if you're flying economy); and children aged between three and ten also receive a fun pack of challenges and destination-specific quizzes designed by much-loved children's party people Sharky & George to keep them interested on long flights or transfers. Once you're actually in Indonesia, our clued-up local Concierges are on hand to take the trip to the next level with family-friendly restaurant recommendations and last-minute plans.

So that's the foundations of your Indonesia family holiday planned, now what about the intriguing, amazing islands and experiences themselves? Obvious starting point would be Bali, where beautiful beaches and family-friendly accommodation come as standard, but where there's also a raft of other family-friendly activities on offer, including - well - rafting, and cycling, kayaking, snorkelling, cookery classes, traditional craft lessons, surfing and riding. We can even arrange cultural (but not too cultural) tours by convertible VWs.

Over on Java there are amazing temple complexes to explore, more beautiful beaches and cultural curiosities such as magical Javanese shadow puppet shows in places like Yogyakarta. Beyond Bali to the east from Java is Lombok, where families can enjoy volcano hiking trips and snorkelling with turtles off the Gili Islands. And did someone say orangutans? Your little monkeys can see these rare and wonderful apes in their natural habitat on Sumatra or Kalimantan, the bit of Borneo that's part of Indonesia. And dragons? No problem, go to Komodo and the children can see actual Komodo dragons. Bragging rights don't come much bigger.
