In general, the period between March till November are the best months to visit Indonesia. This is the period of the dry season. 

With that being said, we recommend customers not to be too bothered by it because you are only here for a few days , it is no guarantee that even if you come in the dry season, it won’t rain or it will always be rainy during the monsoon season. We believe alot is down to luck. December/August are still the peak period of tourist in Indonesia.

Return airport transfer service is included. We would pick you up at Yogyakarta airport on your arrival time on day 1. If you are already in Yogyakarta, we would pick you up at your hotel at around 9am instead. On the last day, we would offer free airport transfer from your hotel.
