To many, Java is known as Indonesia’s Island of Eden. It is eye-wateringly lush- a veritable tropical paradise where all manner of flora and fauna flourish in abundance.

It also has one of the longest records of human habitation of any place on earth and since the discovery of the ‘Java man’, (homo erectus) fossils; it has become an area of intense paleontological scrutiny.

But Java is not only an island of tropical superlatives, it is also rich in culture and houses one of the most stupendous monuments on earth: Borobudur. Sunrise atop the world’s largest Buddhist monument will remain in your mind’s globetrotting eye for all time.
