Java the Wonderland – Have you not yet visited Java? If Not? Do so Now! The catch-cry of the Roaring 1920’s when the Far East was so exotic to travelers.

The foreword gives a fabulous description, and describes Java as the the peerless gem in that magnificent Empire of Insulinde which winds about the equator like a garland of emeralds is the ideal tropical island.

There is something here for every taste: the sportsman will find excellent big game shooting – the architect and the archaeologist will delight in exploring the ruins of Buddhistic and Hinduistic temples. Those studying social and political problems resulting from colonial possessions can study here one of the most successful colonial systems existing. The geologist will grow enthusiastic over the many volcanoes active or quiescent, found here.

And to close this incomplete list of Java’s advantages, it is singularly accommodating as regards climate. In a few hours the visitor may change from the tropics to the temperate zone, may migrate from Batavia to Sindanglaia, 3483 feet above the sea level or from Soura-baja to Tosari, at an altitude of 5776 feet, and famous for its bracing air. The Java Government Railways own 2629 miles of thoroughly equipped lines, passing through all the Principal Tourist centres. Comfortable travelling frequent express and fast trains. Restaurant cars with efficient service in all express and fast trains.
