Travel Asia in July and August

July and August

1. Re: Where to go in July or August in Asia?

Bare in mind that Indonesia is pretty much entirely in the tropical zone as well, like the Philippines. As such, the temperatures don't fluctuate that much and its usually quite warm (or hot). When people say its a good time to visit in the tropical zone places, this usually means 'dry' season when rain is less expected.

Because Indonesia covers such a large expanse and includes over 17, 000 different islands, its difficult to assess if the entire country or specifically targeted parts like Sumatra, Java or Bali would be good to visit during August. You'd definitely need to do your research and find out based on the places you'd like to target. If you only have 2-2.5 weeks, you'd also probably want to limit youself to a couple of destinations. Like Bali, nearby islands like Flores and/or Komodo and then perhaps sneak onto Java Island to see a few things there if you can squeeze in the time. Bali in August should be fine. Here is a link to this question on the Bali forum that would be a good place to start your research.

Bali is also very accessible for international flights. Other areas of Indonesia, not nearly as much.

You also mention Japan and this is a popular place to visit during the summer months. Hokkaido island will be a nice option if you are more interested in countryside, hikes, etc. mixed in with some city. Just keep in mind that Japan is very expensive and can eat up a travellers funds very quickly. 2-2.5 weeks there is going to really cost you a lot of money, much more than destinations in SE Asia like Bali or others in Indonesia.

If you can arrange an open-jaw flight so that you could visit a place like Bali for 2 weeks than spend 3-4 days in Tokyo before flying back home to (Holland?).
