When considering an excitingly lavish and culturally immersive getaway, deep in the gorgeous jungles surrounded by beautiful beaches and rich history, lined with temples and dripping in high-end services and amenities, a luxury vacation in Bali should suffice.


Along the nine-day, eight-night, Indonesia: Temples & Beaches of Bali and Borobudur tour by Cox & Kings, guests explore Indonesia’s top sites and lesser-known locales on this private getaway.


Your tour begins in the historic former capital, Yogyakarta, where your guide will meet you. Spend the day visiting 8th-century temples and exploring the town, including a visit to Keraton Palace in the old city. Get some rest and wake up in time to see the sunrise over Borobudur Temple before spending the morning exploring historic sites, such as the temples of Mendut and Pawon.


For those seeking a truly immersive cultural experience, your day visiting Prambanan village will take you to the Prambanan Temples, riddled with cultural significance and lyrical storytelling, should do the trick.


Next up, hop on a traditional becak, or bicycle cab, en route to Kota Gede and Bumen Village. Get some shopping in at the eclectic Pasar Gede and Pasar Legi markets, where you’ll find locally made crafts and unique finds.


Later, in Ubud, enjoy a relaxing day by the pool and various spa options at you resort, or drive into the heart of Bali for a day exploring more incredible temples, markets, rice paddies and even trek toward temples along the base of Gunung Batukaru, one of the tallest mountains in Bali.


While the tour definitely has structure and a long list of events and attractions, the entire itinerary is essentially customized to your group’s needs. If you want to spend time relaxing at the resort, loading up on spa time or swimming in the pool, have at it, but if you want to get all the local culture and incredible natural beauty exploration in while you can, this tour can definitely support that dream.


Enjoy Bali’s incredible landscape, from the lush rice fields and quaint village markets, to ancient temples, but all with the added comforts of polished accommodations boasting curated services and amenities. The region’s idyllic white beaches and pristine shores of Jimbaran Bay are calling.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
