About this photo

Indonesia’s world-famous landscapes attract travellers in their thousands. Most flock to the rice terraces of Ubud, Bali. However, West Java is home to iconic landscapes with fewer crowds of tourists to share the view with.

Here, the vibrant green grasses of a terraced shallot plantation provide a dramatic, rich view. A local farmer can be seen spraying their crops with pesticides, part of a daily routine for workers.

West Java is home to authentic local Indonesia life, along with spectacular mountains, lush jungles and stretches of beautiful coastlines. Discover this and more for yourself on Insight Guides’ Java Discovery holiday.
