STAYING OVERNIGHT IN BUKIT LAWANG

Spot an orangutan in the trees across the river of Bukit Lawang, if you are lucky, while relaxing in a hammock and enjoying some breakfast – maybe Dadar, a sweet Indonesian pancake dish or an omelette with buttered toast – on your own private terrace. How does that sound?

Savor a lazy day in your peaceful and quiet surroundings or discover everything the area has to offer. You could take a walk along the river or explore the town’s shops and market, displaying Batik art, as well as local specialties and fruits only found in Indonesia.

You are more than welcome to join the locals and fellow travelers in the restaurant of the guest house or hotel, have a drink or two together, learn some Indonesian songs, join in on the singing or just be a quiet listener before you head off to bed for a good night’s sleep, all the while surrounded by the exotic sounds of the jungle.
