Indonesia Photography Tour: The Best Places To Photograph

Indonesia photography tour guides provide a route for photographers to see the side of Indonesia that traditional tours just don't cover. While there's no denying that Bali is a great place to go on holiday, it is also a massive tourist destination which makes it busier and harder to photograph the sights there.

But there are plenty of places all around Indonesia for stunning photography. Despite the island of Bali being the tourism capital of Indonesia, Yogyakarta is its cultural capital. It is known for being the centre of Indonesian education, art, culture, ballet, poetry, drama, music and so on. If you're looking to do photography tours involving wildlife, then you do have to check out Flores. This island is home to the wild Komodo dragon. These vulnerable creatures are also native to the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Gili Motang and Padar. But Flores is considered the 'next big thing' in Indonesia, thanks to it combining a tropical setting that is still close to a significant area of population. It also offers easy access to Komodo National Park on the islands of Komodo, Padar and Rinca, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lastly, Mount Bromo is a must-see too and is truly one of the most stunning locations to take photographs in Indonesia. For those who are going to Indonesia purely with the aim of taking photos, it is often a good idea to avoid December to March. This is summer vacation time for Australians and also close to Chinese New Year, making it very busy and not an ideal time for peaceful, stress-free photography tours Asia.
