Add these can't-miss activities to your itinerary.

Bali (Denpasar)

Bali is famed for its incredible and traditional history, which is manifested in its many temples. Visit the city's most central temple, Alun-Alun Puputan, and look out for the four-faced and eight-armed Catur Maukha statue. Learn more about the city at the Bali Museum, with a pavilion dedicated to Balinese Hinduism and ritual. The city is just a taxi ride away from the beaches of Seminyak and Canggu, perfect for day-tripping.

Jakarta

Head to the city's National Museum of Indonesia, housed in the iconic Elephant Building, to learn about the country’s history. Visit the National Monument, dedicated to Indonesia’s independence, which was constructed by President Sukarno. Admire local Indonesian art at the National Gallery of Indonesia and enjoy the local theatre scene at the Gedung Kesenian Jakarta (the Jakarta Arts Theatre).

Surabaya

Start your visit at the Surabaya monument, an emblem of the two Sanskrit words sura, meaning whale, and baya, meaning crocodile. Surabuya has plenty of activities to explore, including the Persebaya football club, which has a capacity of 50,000 – football being a much-loved sport amongst the locals. The city is the gateway to the active volcano Mount Bromo, at 2,329 metres in elevation, and a popular daytime excursion. Close to the volcano, explore the holiday town of Malang.

Cebu

Cebu is the heartland of Christianity in the Philippines – experience a sense of the local spirituality at the revered Basilica of Santo Niño. Founded in the 1560s, it contains the country’s oldest religious relic. Fort San Pedro is the smallest Spanish fortress in the Philippines, today containing treasures recovered from a shipwreck. Other key sights include Magellan’s Cross, the Taoist Temple, and the Lapu-Lapu Monument. Children are sure to love meeting the residents of Crocolandia.  

Manila

Wander along Manila Bay and you’ll stumble across many major attractions, such as the Bonifacio Shrine, Malacañán Palace, and Coconut Palace. The Baywalk is a top spot to enjoy wonderful sunset vistas. Take in the past within the historic walls of Intramuros, or learn further about the local history at the National Museum of the Philippines. For a break from the city energy, head to Riza Park. Kids will love Manila Ocean Park, a marine theme park.
