That’s what I believe I would need to visit Java island if I want to see any colonial history and architecture. I would also like to see Indonesian temples and relics.
One thing I would like to add trekking and see any of the animals at the national parks. Are their any lodging inside the forest where you can view the animals?
If you want to see Dutch colonial era architecture in Sumatera, you can visit Medan with its Bank Indonesia building for example. National park available at Taman Nasional Gunung Leuser at Aceh. But if you are interest in Dutch architecture like art-deco style, Bandung is a very suitable beside Jakarta with its Kota Tua area, Semarang with Kota Lama area and Yogyakarta.
Ok... thanks for the info. I would be interested in the Dutch East Indies Trading Company’s history
