Indonesia is really rather special. The 17,000+ islands offer a vast array of wildlife, culture, and world-famous beaches. The island of Bali is renowned for its pure white sands and romantic hideaways. Java is home to the fearsome Krakatoa and the archipelago’s bustling capital Jakarta. Lombok and the Eastern Islands offer the best chances of encounters with orang-utans and komodo dragons in some of the most exquisite national parks. So why is now a good time to visit?
- Dry season
- Temperatures are at their peak and minimal chance of rainfall- especially in Bali and Lombok
- Cooler evening temperatures make for more comfortable nights
Home to the world’s oldest known continuous civilisation and a third of the world’s population, China holds many historical artefacts dating as far back to the first human civilisations a million years ago! China is an immaculate blend of the old and new. Beijing and Xi’an offer a glimpse into China’s Imperial past, whilst the modern cities of Hong Kong and Shanghai are a great display of futuristic present. Highlights of China come in the way of the magnificent Temple of Heaven, The Yangtze River Cruise and of course, the infamous Great Wall. So why embark on your Chinese adventure now?
- The mountain scenery is great at this time of year
- Less crowds – especially at the Great Wall of China
- Most of the country experiences great weather between April and June – especially the popular destinations of Bejing and Xi’an which can experience quite unpleasant heat during the mid-summer months.
Borneo is a destination blessed with immense national wonders. It is filled with luscious green jungle and is home to some of the World’s most extraordinary and endangered species of wildlife – including the orang-utan! The coastline boasts magnificent beaches, perfect for soaking up the sun and exploring the diverse marine life in the warm waters. Whether you’re an adventurous traveller or wishing to relax, Borneo is very accommodating to all. Why visit at this time of the year?
- During the early summer months, Borneo is in a transitional period between monsoons and so, even though unpredictable, the weather is at this time at its best with the least chance of rain and the most chance of sun.
- Trekking is excellent during this period with rainfall at lower levels.
- As this is “low season”, there’s lots of availability at even our favourite resorts – so you’ll get the pick of the crop even with last minute bookings!
