    Hi Anybody got some tips for the following trip.
    The items which concern me are the scale / distances in Indo' and the fact that its in the middle of the rainy season.
    The plan was arrive Jakarta- train - stopping off any cities of interest- lombok - Bali- flight home.
    We do not want to be on the road all the time and want some time to chill. However the rainy season is concerning me and I have thought of changing to North Sulawesi or Moluccas Islands ,(i believe the weather is better there) but distance and time might be an issue if we don't want to spend all our time traveling
    Any constructive tips would be gratefully appreciated

    Hi RSH13,

    Even in the rainy season you can still visit the highlights of Java and Bali, (Bogor Botanical Garden, Borobudur, Prambanan ... temples in Bali), but forget the beaches. It's not only the rain, the beaches are dirty during the rainy season. In Maluku the weather will be better, not so in North Sulawesi though. The following page will give you a good overview of the climates in various parts of Indonesia.
