Day 6: East Madura/Giligenteng Island, Indonesia
To the south of Madura lies a small island, Giligenteng, a community of four peaceful little fishing villages, where everybody knows each other. The village of Bringsang consists of one small street, a mosque and a few local shops. There are no tourist attractions but it is an authentic fishing village and will give you an insight into the everyday life of this little community. The atmosphere is one of quiet content and the people are remarkably hospitable and friendly, saying hello and waving greetings as they go about their business. The beach here is really beautiful with clear water and pristine white sand.
Day 7: Probolinggo, Java, Indonesia
Probolinggo is a port town whose main activity is fishing. It is also the nearest town of any size to the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park on the east coast of Java, and a stopping point on the way to the Gunung Bromo volcano. The area in and around the park is inhabited by the Tenggerese, an ethnic minority, and one of the few remaining Hindu communities on the island of Java.
Day 8: Lovina Beach, Bali, Indonesia
North of Bali, the Lovina tourist area stretches over 12 km and consists of a string of coastal villages: Kaliasem, Kalibukbuk, Anturan, Tukad Mungga, collectively know as Lovina. Lovina’s black sandy beaches are quite lovely, the sea is very calm here and safe for swimming. The atmosphere on the beach is one of laid-back tranquillity with colourfully decorated traditional outriggers called perahu dotted along the shoreline.
Day 9: Sengiggi, Lombok, Indonesia
Sengiggi is Lombok's traditional tourist resort. A large bay forms the centre of the resort and it is one of the busier places on the island of Lombok. The main street comes alive at night and there are many restaurants to dine in as well as plenty of bars for live music and nightclubs to dance in. However one of the most amazing sights on the island can be viewed from Sengiggi Beach, the spectacular sunset. The bright orange sun sinks into the ocean with Bali's Mt. Agung volcano silhouetted on the horizon.
Day 10: Gili Sudak, Indonesia
This is the perfect island getaway, a small “resort” with fine white sand, coral reefs and limpid turquoise waters teeming with marine life including colourful tropical fish and starfish. The island has facilities and there is shade. From here the ship’s zodiac can take you to “Gili Kadiz”, a great snorkelling site.
Day 11: Disembark and fly to Singapore
Fly with Singapore Airlines from Bali to Singapore, and transfer to the Parkroyal for a 3-night stay.
Day 12-13: Singapore
Singapore provides the polar opposite to some of the beach destinations you will visit, it’s a melting pot of cultures filled with people from all walks of life. The impressive skyscrapers tower all around you but are delightfully offset by the greenery of places such as Gardens by the Bay and the National Orchid Garden. Whilst the shops of Orchard Road and restaurants of Clarke Quay offer a lively atmosphere, there is always the chance to find a moment to yourself in the various temples and on islands like Pulau Ubin.
