Indonesia (other than Bali!)

Jump to last reply

HI, forgive me if I'm repeating myself. I reached out for info on travel through Indonesia a few years back and because of time and weather delays only ended up making it to Bali. I'm planning to return again this year with my sister who hasn't been to Bali so along with spending 5 or 6 days in Ubud, we are looking to explore more interesting cultural places and some wildlife in other places. Hoping to work in Yogyakarta for Borobudur and Prambanan and soak up any of the arts and cultures we can in that area, but really want to see the Tana Toraja in Sulawesi for the funeral rituals and then see some amazing wildlife (rhinos/orangutans) in either Sumatra or Borneo? We would love to see some of the unique ethnic people of Papua but I worry that's just too much all at once. Wondering if anyone has recommends and suggestions between Sumatra and Borneo and if there are other things to see on Sulawesi. Also, is Papua a trip on its own? My sister and I are really interested in different religions and diverse cultures, the arts, temples, wildlife, and beautiful landscapes. We are not beach people and don't dive, so we'd like to concentrate on the locations we could get the best of the above. We will probably go in July or August for the funeral rituals in Sulawesi and spend about 2 and a half weeks traveling around. I've read through some trip reports and my old posts, and wondering if there is anything more recent. We're both super busy with our jobs, so I'm wondering if anyone has recent travel guide recommends that can assist us. I haven't seen anything about Wiedy on recent posts so I'm not sure if he's still doing it.
Any information you can provide would be much appreciated! oH maybe I should also mention we aren't very athletic so although we want to see wildlife we can't do really intense climbing/hiking :-)
thanks all! Happy travels!
