Ports Of Call: Java
By Mike Thiel

When we visited Java, the fifth largest but most populous and industrialized island in the Indonesian archipelago, it was suffering from political unrest. At this writing (2001), it continues, making the immediate future of tourism here rather uncertain. It is unfortunate because Java is a fascinating island with captivating rural landscapes: rice paddies, tea plantations, and ancient shrines set against a backdrop of rugged, still-live volcanoes.

It is a destination that offers myriad natural wonders, dramatic cultural sites, and rituals, as well as unique crafts for bargain prices. We hope that it soon gets beyond its current problems so that more people will feel comfortable exploring its wonders.

Spring/Summer 2001
