Ferries to Indonesia

Indonesia is a transcontinental country encompassing over 17,000 islands across Southeast Asia and parts of Oceana, falling primarily across the equator, spanning from the far western island of Sumatra to the very eastern edge of Papua.

The largest archipelago in the world, Indonesia is the 4th most populous country on earth with over 300 languages spoken across the islands. Given its location, the majority of Indonesian backdrops feature tropical rainforests, but all across the islands you’ll find exquisite beaches, clusters of volcanoes, idyllic rice fields and bustling city skylines. Everything from the landscape to the culture is hugely rich and varied, culminating in one of the most diverse nations you’re likely to visit.

The most popular and well-known tourist destination is Bali; known for its forested mountains and spectacular religious sites, namely Uluwatu Temple, most come here for the buzzing resort towns and supreme yoga and meditation retreats. Jakarta, the capital, is a sprawling city with Dutch colonial buildings, a financial centre and excellent shopping opportunities. Defined by a historic mix of Javanese, Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and European cultures, Indonesia’s capital is a melting pot of ethnicities, serving up various cuisines and customs.

Home to the planet’s 2nd highest level of biodiversity, after Brazil, Indonesia is a stomping ground for numerous fascinating species, particularly orangutans, komodo dragons and tigers, with over 60% of the country forested, allowing them to thrive. Offshore this great archipelago lies the greatest diversity of coral reef fish on earth, with over 1,650 species found in eastern Indonesia alone. Southeast Asia’s largest national park, Lorentz, in Papua, is just one of many wonderful parks throughout the country, ideal for spotting the local wildlife.

Predominantly a Muslim nation, Indonesia’s testaments to Buddhism and Hinduism are some of the most mesmerising on the continent. Borobudur is the world’s largest Buddhist temple, protruding from dense palm forests and rice paddies, it was built in the 9th Century and consists of multiple stacked platforms topped by a magnificent central dome. The Hindu Prambanan, dated to the 8th Century, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site listed temple complex marked by a 47 metre-high central structure, also in Central Java.

With so many islands, ferry travel is extremely widespread and is a popular mode of transport in Indonesia. The majority of routes are domestic, inter-island connections between some of the country’s most popular holiday destinations such as Bali and Lombok, but fast and frequent sailings from Singapore are also available. All Indonesian routes are operated by a wealth of excellent ferry companies, offering a huge choice of timetables to suit your budget and schedule.

Indonesia reviews

  • "Really pleasant journey"

    Everything is nicely set up and organised, from booking to boarding. Since i have already booked online all i needed to do was check in which is actually very swift and convenient. The only problem was the ship back to Singapore was delayed approx 30 mins but i doubt it could be helped. The rest of it was good. Thanks

  • "Good Journey"

    After hearing alot of bad reviews about ferries to and from the GIli Island we were very worried. However we were pleasently suprised. Everyone got a seat of the ferry and the boarding was very quick where staff take your bags and store them on the boat. They do chuck them around a fair bit so dont keep too many breakables in there. The ride over was very bumpy towards the end but the first hour and a half were really good with no rough current or waves.

  • "Good experience with Bintan resort ferries "

    The ferry was punctual and the interior was clean - as you'd expect from a Singapore ferry. Overall, it was a good experience and best way to get to Bintan for sure.

  • "Service on Bintan Ferry"

    Everything went very smoothly and all in all a decent experience. Did not realise that there was a weight restriction for suitcases. This should be clearly advertised on the ticket printout or on the website, although I don't know why there should be a restriction as with aircraft.
