    Hi everyone,

    I'll be in Jogjakarta from 7 Sep, for 15 days in Central/East Java. Really want to take a look at Karimunjawa, as well as Mount Merapi and The Ijen Plateau.

    Say hello if you'll be in the neighbourhood. Safe travels.

    Cheers, Christian

    Hi Christian -

    I am starting a 3-month trip through Southeast Asia in a few weeks and have been thinking about heading down to Indonesia right around the same time you'll be there (Sept 7), flying into either Jakarta or Yogyakarta and making my way east to Bali. Hopefully will decide for sure in the next few days, as I'll be coming from Singapore and would like to arrange a flight into and out of Indonesia. Other option I'm considering is going overland through Malaysia up to Thailand.

    This will be my first time to Southeast Asia and first solo trip. 31, M.

    That's an interesting choice you've got there Adam, but a nice problem to have!

    With a 3-month window, if you're interested in seeing the Perhentians in Malaysia, or say Ko Tao / Ko Phagnan in Thailand, then you want to be doing that in September, before the East Coast weather drops off. But, by the same token, East Java is also nice and dry that month.

    I'm still planning on a couple of days in Yogya from the 7th, but after that it's all still up in the air - if the ferries work for Karimunjawa I will be well pleased.

    Thanks for saying hello on this post and get in touch if you are up for a beer and some Nasi Gudeg in Yogya - my travel email is on the "About" page of my blog.

    Cheers, Christian
