American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) Learning Vacation, Aromatic Indonesia: Aromatic & Herbal Journey Through the Spice Islands, Offers Peek Into Java and Bali's Rich Botanical Diversity

Portland, Oregon (I-Newswire) March 5, 2013 - American College of Healthcare Sciences is proud to announce its 2013 study abroad summer program in Indonesia, Aromatic Indonesia: Aromatic & Herbal Journey Through the Spice Islands, May 19-31, 2013.

Indonesia is rich with spices and aromatic and herbal treasures. While staying at excellent hotels, study aboard program participants will discover the rich botanical diversity that Java and Bali offer and experience the mysterious, fascinating culture and history of Indonesia.

"Immersing yourself in the culture of Indonesian herbs and essential oils is a fantastic way to learn about Jamu, Indonesia's traditional herbal medicine, first hand. Jamu has a long tradition of use and widespread application for today's busy health enthusiast who wants to follow natural health and wellness principles, but who may not be able to take an entire aromatherapy, herbal medicine, or holistic nutrition course or program. Plus, we're going to be visiting some extremely beautiful locations and staying at premier resorts. Program participants will leave this journey educated, refreshed, and revitalized," says ACHS President Dorene Petersen.

Excursions include stops at: the Bogor Botanical Garden, the Bogor Presidential Palace, a traditional nutmeg distillery, the Manoko experimental and research garden (managed by the Indonesian Medicinal and Aromatic Crops Research Institute), tea plantations, the historical city of Bandung, the famous historical resort hill town of Garut, a sustainable vetiver plantation, the historical city of Jogjakarta (Jogja) where Jamu (traditional Indonesian Herbal medicine) is a curbside convenience, a tour of the Sido Muncul Jamu Factory, the famous Buddhist pilgrimage site of Borobudur, a tour of spice exporter Agro Spices, the 9th-century Hindu Prambanan Temple, the Agung Rai Museum of Art, the village of Kintamani (located on the caldera of the volcano Mount Batur), and Tenganan village, a traditional Balinese village where the Bali Aga-the original Balinese people-are said to still live.

Resort and hotel stays include the Putri Duyung Cottage, Sensa Hotel, Danau Dariza Hotel (a boutique hotel which features traditional Indonesian Houses), and Bali's premier Health and Wellbeing Spa Retreat, Bagus Jati.

The Aromatic Indonesia program awards 80 contact hours of continuing education.
