Take water activities (optional) or just take a stroll along the lake. Stop by at local fruit market and taste various tropical local fruits.

Take a short boat ride and get off the mainland of Bali. Discover some of the most beautiful and untouched costline of west Nusa Penida, a secluded bird sanctuary island known for its natural beauty and marine under water. Explore the cliff and enjoy its magnificent view. If you like adventure and want to be challenged, trek the steep dirt path down to its pink sandy beach (about 45min each way). Soak up the sun, enjoy the warm sea water and have a delightful picnic at its secluded beach.
Explore the largest Buddhist temple in the world and UNESCO world heritage site, Borobudur. Witness the sunrise and experience the silent and lonely dawn on the top of Borobudur temple. Discover Yogyakarta city, the only province in Indonesia that is still headed by a monarchy. Visit the King palace and take a glimpse of the palace guards and abdi dalem - people who "voluntarily" dedicate their life to the King and his extended family. Uncover the magic of Prambanan temple, another UNESCO world heritage site, and watch unique Ramayana dance performance at the open theater of the temple. Tour around the countryside on traditional horse carriage and discover the daily life of rice farmers and villagers.
Discover Borneo orangutan on a private trip to Kalimantan, the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo and visit Tanjung Puting National Park which is famous for its orangutan conservations and ecotourism destination. Other than orangutan, the park is also home to Proboscis monkeys, gibbons, macaques, clouded leopards, sun bears, wild boars, porcupines, sambar deer, birds such as hornbills and kingfishers, giant bornean butterfly and reptiles such as monitor lizards and crocodiles. Cruise along Kumai River and explore the dense jungle to encounter the thriving variety of flora and fauna that have made Borneo one of the most biologically diverse places on earth.
One of the absolute highlights of our trip to Borneo was being greeted by the orangutans in the wild jungle. Well-organized by DOYANTravel, our journey was led by an excellent and knowledgeable local guide.
