Travelling from Jakarta to East Java in mid-august and wanted some advice.
My plan is Monday (Arrive Surabaya), Tuesday (Bromo), Wednesday (Kawah Ijen then onto Banyuwangi), Thursday (Travel to Gili Islands via Bali speedboat)
Is this feasible or going to be a nightmare?

All sounds OK except for Thursday. It might be possible to make all the connections to Gilis from Java in one day... but it really sounds like a stretch to me. Allow one extra day and you'll be right. Let's say you get down from Ijen by 9am... Banyuwangi by 10... Gilimanuk by 11... Then catch a bus to Denpasar . Let's say it all connects... You'll be in Denpasar by about 2:30 or 3. You then need to get from that bus terminal to Padang Bai. Then the boat. Seems a stretch for sure.
Maybe other people that have actually done it in a day could comment!
Thanks so much mooball! Will add an extra day then!
