Suggested itineraries in July
For a far-flung adventure in July, Indonesia is your best bet. However, it will be filling up in the popular destinations so we suggest exploring some of Indonesia’s remote islands. After all – there are over 17,000 of them! Find fabulous accommodation in Lombok, Bali’s lesser-known neighbour, or head to Raja Ampat, where it will be dry and warm, perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving above some of the world’s most pristine corals.
