The Indonesian island of Java has been voted the world's 'best island' by the readers of Travel & Leisure, making it's first appearance on the list and pitting it's popular neighbour, Bali, to the post.

Based on activities, natural attractions, beaches, food and friendliness this winning island got a stellar score of 95.28 out of 100, and we can kind of see why.

Lonely Planet recommends a few sights on the sea-locked paradise, namely the biggest Buddhist temple in the world, Borobudur Temple, and the marine national park of the Karimunjawa Islands.

However, it’s not just it’s Indonesian cousins that Java beat - the Maldives, Greece’s Páros and Scotland’s own Orkney Islands also ranked lower than the mesmerising island.

Java is described as ‘the heart of the nation’ with ‘profound traditions in art, music and dance’ as well as ‘megacities, mesmerising natural beauty and magical archaeological sites.’

With dry season being from May to September, it also means you could make a spontaneous trip there come the beginning of August, and with return flights available through Skyscanner for £511, what the flip are you waiting for?

Off to Java we go then, eh??

The Hawaian Islands would get my vote. US standard of living along with the beaches etc.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

Do they have a Taco Bell there?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
