Is Indonesia safe? Our top tips
Take care of your valuables
As in all other destinations, it is best leave your valuables in the safe of your hotel. If you are carrying expensive items, take care not to display them in public.
Stay away from animals
Beware of stray dogs in Indonesia as many of these have rabies. The same applies to monkeys as well. In general, it is a good idea to keep away from all animals in Indonesia.
While climbing volcanoes is possible, make sure to check if these are currently active or dormant. On your private Indonesia tour, your local guide and Trip Coordinator will be able to advise you accurately about volcanoes. We will customize your itinerary whenever necessary.
Indonesia is a very safe destination for female travelers however, traveling alone at night is not recommended. Avoid motorcycle taxis after dark. Do keep in mind that Indonesia is a Muslim country and dress conservatively when you are not at the beach.
In the midst of traffic
Be extra careful while navigating traffic in Indonesia – the conditions can be quite chaotic compared to Western countries. Tourists should avoid riding in motorcycles even if you find locals using this mode of transport – these are known to cause accidents.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful.
