The perfect long haul summer holiday, travelling to Indonesia should be at the top of any families travel wish list. True, to see it all is virtually impossible in one trip but with the right advice and tailoring it to suit your families priorities, it is a dream destination. Take some time to watch the sunset on a Balinese beach, search for the dragons of Komodo and watch in awe as wild orangutans swing from the branches of dense forest trees. For local culture and flavour head to Java and the Buddhist temples of Borobudur but also the vibrant streets of Yogyakarta with its local food scene and artisans.
