Hello VW Fans.

In 2014, I had the pleasure, to travel for 4 month through Indonesia to Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Sulawesi, Maluku, Papua and Kalimantan.

On the way, I saw sometimes quite a few old VWs but often nothing at all. Most classic Volkswagens, like the Brazilian Bay Bus, 181 and Beetle, are running on Java and Bali. At Yogyakarta in Java is once a year the biggest VW Show in Indonesia, the Jogjakarta Volkswagen Festival (JVWF).

Some Volkswagens in Indonesia are very well restored and upgraded with vintage accessories but most of what I saw is far behind of how we pamper the old VW in Germany. Of course this condition makes the VW viewing very interesting.

I first went to Sumatra and published my VW experiences of Medan, Banda Ace and Bukittinggi while travelling. In this post now all other pictures.

The first picture is an Indonesian family with their VW Kombi Bus on a weekend trip at Gunung Merapi in February 2014. WOW!

Please enjoy about 90 great pictures of the classic VW in Indonesia.
