With more than 700 languages spoken on the multitude of islands that form it, Indonesia is the result of a real cultural melting pot. This diversity can also be found in its landscapes, which alternate between jungle, volcanic mountains, and white-sand beaches.  After calling in at the Tembelan Islands, a dream destination for those who enjoy lazing at the water’s edge, set off to meet the orangutans of Tanjung Puting National Park, in southern Borneo. Relish this unforgettable moment in the midst of an ancient tropical forest. Finish your trip with a visit to Komodo National Park. This wild and isolated island is home to the famous giant prehistoric-looking lizards, as well as Pink Beach, celebrated for its pinkish sand, a result of the color pigments of the organ pipe coral found in the area.

Day 1: Singapore, Malaysia | Embark

Nicknamed the Garden City, Singapore stretches across Malaysia's southern-most region. Experience the vibrant hustle and bustle of this city-state for yourself at the Marina Bay. Not too far away is the historic center, offering up a unique smorgasbord of neoclassical buildings and contemporary towers. Decked out in topiary, the pavements of Orchard Road are also home to countless shopping centers. The colorful markets in Chinatown and Little India are the perfect opportunity to quell hunger pangs in a hawker centre, one of the city's traditional snack bars. Between the two districts, get a slice of history with a trip to the Raffles dock. It was here that Englishman Sir Raffles, the founder of the city, is said to have arrived one fateful day in January 1819.

The port of Badas is part of the greater township of Sumbawa Besar, on the island of Sumbawa. Like most of Sumbawa the people hold their culture strong as a major part of their identity. The island has a strong influence from the Makassarese of Sulawesi, who over the centuries have introduced a lot of their culture into Sumbawa. Join your expedition team and local guides for a tour by bus to Pamulung Village where you are welcomed by the head of the village and have the opportunity to witness first-hand the local traditions of rice pounding, weaving, and also witness a wedding procession. Your visit concludes with an exciting Sumbawa buffalo race, an event that is held in honor of your visit.  

Day 8: Pink Beach, Komodo National Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Imagine a pure blue sky with only a few cotton wool clouds lazily bobbing across it, a calm sea that gently laps against a beach where the soft sand is neither golden nor black, but a delicate powder pink... Pink Beach is one of just seven beaches on the planet where this very special pink sand can be seen. The distinct pink hue results from the mixture of calcareous white sand with the eroded deep-red skeleton of the organ pipe coral. The fringing coral reef is in excellent condition, and the waters are crystal clear and harbor colorful reef fish that can be found just a short distance from shore. Enjoy an afternoon ashore at Pink Beach, one of the easiest places in the tropics to snorkel and explore nature’s richest realm.

Day 9: Loh Liang, Komodo National Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 10: Benoa (Bali), Indonesia | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
If it's a taste of exotic authenticity you're after, prepare to be spell-bound by the island of Bali, tucked away in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago. The beauty and diversity of its landscapes, the depth and richness of its cultural heritage, and the plethora of activities on offer here make Bali a little slice of heaven on Earth. The island's southern coast enthrals with its whit- sand beaches, its picturesque little fishing villages such as Benoa, and its hills patchworked with terraced rice paddies further inland. Nicknamed 'the Island of Gods' for its sumptuous temples, Bali is the beating heart of Indonesian Hinduism. Say farewell to your fellow passengers and the crew and start your independent journey back home.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
