Indonesia. Over 17,000 islands scattered across the ocean. Its motto “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika”, Unity in Diversity, perfectly reflects ethnical, cultural and geographical diversity of this country. An extraordinary place to visit on a motorcycle, but that’s what Advfactory.com is all about. We take you to places no one else will!
The tales of this island and half naked women fuelled the imagination of Dutch opium merchants and pirates for centuries,and the royal family preferred to commit a puputan (mass suicide) rather than to shame their honour. The western culture has been trying to tame this island of a thousand temples. Despite of that Bali still remains a place where people deeply believe in tradition, the religion is unique, the family is inseparable even after death, and nature’s stunning beauty manages to conquer cheap gadgets for tourists. You’ll find paradise if you know where to look. And we most certainly do.
Lombok, the second island in the Lesser Sunda Islands archipelago, is often compared to Bali from a couple of decades ago. When you cross Wallace’s line and head east, the asphalt turns to gravel, and among the lush greenery you’re more likely to run into a slowly grazing cow than a pushy seller. Rinjani volcanoe towers over the plains and the water sparkles with all shades of turquoise. Dreamland.
During the 12 days of our trip you’ll get to experience the luxury of soaking in a swimming pool overlooking rice terraces as well as taste the volcanic dust from beneath your bike’s wheels. We offer a full package. You’ll find out all the different names of rice, dive in the Balinese sea, and after a few days you’ll start treating monkeys like ordinary pigeons. You’ll visit dozens of temples dating back to the ancient times, and the sounds of gamelan or the unique smell of a thousand incenses will stay in your memory forever.
