Java is the most heavily populated island in the world and home to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta. Its urban centres play a major role in the political and commercial life of the country.
Travellers who explore the countryside encounter a whole new world, dominated by rumbling volcanoes, lush green plateaus, hot springs, ancient temples and traditional rural villages.
