Less accessible than Central Java or Bali, East Java is a volcano explorer's paradise. This section of Indonesia is remote enough to keep tourism down but has enough infrastructure to make it comfortable. Mt. Bromo gets most of the attention but Kwah Ijen is well worth the effort and makes for a great stop on the way to / from Bali. Highly recommended for adventurers and those who love nature and the outdoors. If you are unhappy without luxury, best to skip and move on to Bali.
A place first and foremost of stunning volcanic landscapes, East Java is the highlight that redeems Java's bad (its beaches) and ugly (the cities of west Java) here on Indonesia's most populous island. Though the transit connections here can be a bit of a bear, and the tour operators that overcome that particular obstacle largely unscrupulous, a sunrise over an erupting Mt. Bromo, or a hike down into the sulfur plume in the blasted moonscape of Kawah Ijen easily makes up for it.
