Once the centre of powerful Hindu kingdoms, Islamic sultanates and the core of the colonial Dutch East Indies, Java now plays a dominant role in the economic and political realm of Indonesia. The island is almost entirely of volcanic origin and the thirteenth largest in the world, encompassing approximately 139.000 km2. A ridge of no fewer than 38 volcanic mountains graces the east-west shoreline of the island. These mountains are among East Java’s main attractions, including the island’s highest peak of Mount Semeru and the smoking crater of Mount Bromo. Mount Bromo is by no means the highest mountain in the region yet likely to be the most admired and illustrious of East Java’s tourist attractions, partly due to its unique location and the reverence shown by local communities.
The island of Java is positioned between Sumatra to the west, Bali to the east and Borneo to the north. Java, with some 62% of Indonesia’s population, is without a doubt the most populous island on earth. The island is divided into four provinces; Banten, West Java, Central Java and East Java. In addition to those regions there is Yogyakarta and the capital district of Jakarta. Although more than 90% of Javanese people are Muslim, the island has a varied jumble of cultures and religious beliefs. Indonesian is generally spoken as a second language as the three major lingos are Javanese, Sundanese and Madurese.
Java is known to be the island of many ‘firsts’. It was, for instance, the first ever place to produce Indonesian coffee and the historical site where in 1891 Dutchman Eugene Dubois discovered fossils of what he later named the Anthropithecus. This type of ape was proved to have walked upright. Classic Javanese arts include gamelan music and wayang puppet shows and the island were home to Pramoedya Ananta Tour. The notorious Indonesian author wrote numerous stories based on his own experiences growing up in Java, intertwined with elements from Javanese folklore and historical legends.
Kawah Ijen boasts the planet’s largest acidic lake to which many a traveler is drawn. The coffee plantations, waterfalls, hot springs and dramatic volcanic scenery are very much appreciated by the flocks of tourists eager to witness men and women carry heavy sulphur-laden baskets from the scorching crater base. Only a half-hour flight from adjacent Bali, Java offers an eclectic array of activities, tourist sites and picturesque scenery. One of Southeast Asia’s most extensive zoos, rafting and hiking possibilities, the ‘City of Heroes’ – Surabaya –, steaming volcanic mountains, tasty foods, forests, matchless artful traditions and cultures, and much more, are what you come across on this authentic Indonesian island.
