Apes, Arts and Dragons: Trip of a Lifetime

Posted on by Sally Grimes


See Komodo Dragons on the Apes, Arts and Dragons trip.

An oldie but a goodie, Apes, Arts and Dragons has almost sold out for 2015.

Apes, Arts and Dragons is one of our most popular trips. As the winner of the National Geographic Trip of a Lifetime award, travelers come to Journeys specifically for this unique itinerary and experience.

What will you do on this trip? Explore corners of this many-island country that few tourists have visited, in more depth and detail than most trips can offer. Engage with natural history, living culture, and human origins. Spend time with orangutans in Tanjung Puting National Park on Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo). Learn about traditional island arts and folk expression at the cultural heart of Java, and tour the iconic religious monument of Borobudur at sunrise. Search for Komodo Dragons while cruising on a private live-aboard boat around six small volcanic islands. And, return to Bali as a hub of your experience, where you can extend if you'd like to experience more unique Hindu art and culture (or to spend a few days on the beach).
