Beyond Bali
The Republic of Indonesia embraces no less than 17.508 islands. It is therefore needless to say that there is much to see! BAM Tours invites you to discover some of Indonesia’s most sought after destinations, from the enchanting island of Bali to one of the most populous islands in the world, Java. From distinct Sulawesi to stunning Lombok and Sumbawa, join us in the unveiling of the wonderfully diverse Indonesian archipelago.
