25 Day Central Java Itinerary, Indonesia

25 Day Central Java Itinerary, Indonesia

This 25 day Central Java itinerary also includes a costs summary with the total expenditure and daily average in local currency and USD.

Initially I had a bunch of stuff on my bucket list to see all over Indonesia. I bought internal flights and everything.

Then two days into my Palawan itinerary I scrapped the majority of my bucket list. I canceled all internal flights (at a 25% loss) and bought one from Jakarta to Yogyakarta, since my departure was from Yogyakarta.

My initial idea was to just stay in Yogyakarta for the whole time but that didn’t happen either. What I should have done was just slowly travel overland from Jakarta to Yogyakarta.

Instead I just slowly traveled around the general area.
