Itinerary & Expenses – Indonesia

We were in Indonesia for a total of 11 days. We walked along Malioboro St in Yogyakarta, marveled at the temples of Prambanan and Borobudur, hiked to the active volcanoes Bromo and Ijen, and finally drank in the culture of Ubud and lounged at the beaches of Kuta in Bali.

Please feel free to pick and choose which portion of our itinerary you’d like to use. Do make sure that you allot enough leeway for travel times and delays.

Please note that the following are our major/necessary expenses. This does not include purchases like snacks, supplies, souvenirs, etc. Prices are on a per person basis (except accommodations) unless otherwise specified. You also may have noticed that some meals didn’t make it into this list. It’s hard keeping track of those, cause I eat a lot! Hahaha!
