Im looking for a 2-3 week break next winter and want to head over somewhere cheap and close. Bali's a bit overrated for me. I like adventure activities (surfing, fishing, caving, hiking) but also want to lay about alot

    Check out Lombok Island (close to Bali but not so touristy) and then spend some time on the Gili Islands. My favourite is Gili Trawangan. about 9 years ago

    Mate, I've recently returned from a month touring Indonesia but I didn't do any of the activities you mentioned. However I reckon you'd enjoy the hike to Bukit Lawang to see the orangutans and the hike on Rinca and Komodo Islands to see the dragons & other wildlife there. While I covered alot of Sumatra, Java & Bali & some of Lombok & Flores, Indonesia is vast so a good guide book should help you. A little bit of paradise is to be found on Samosir Island which is situated in the caldera of the super volcano Lake Toba. Our hotel which was surrounded by beautiful gardens with many orchids was out of this world though I can't remember its name. Though I didn't get as far south on Flores to see Kelimutu where there are the 3 different coloured crater lakes, I reckon you'd enjoy the hike there & the hike up the volcanoes Mt Ijen & Mt Bromo in Java. almost 10 years ago
