A lot of people think of Jakarta when they think about Java, with its international airport and busy city. But Java is a very large island with so much to offer with regards to culture, they have a large selection of crafts, from batic, to wood calving, instrument making and puppet making. Puppets feature all over Java with shows, displays and even museums, all telling stories of Javanese history. Gamelan music can often be heard throughout villages and in towns, with its unique melodic tunes. Local food is delicious and highly recommended, you cant beat street food for giving you a true taste of Javanese culture.

Batic in Java is beautiful and all handmade, they use their own cotton, bees wax and dyes made from local products. It is worth going to watch them being created or even have a go yourself.
