The UK and US governments’ have advised travellers to Indonesia to exercise a high degree of caution, because of potential terrorist attacks.
The advice to both British and Australian travellers follows a warning from the US last week of a potential attack against US-associated hotels and banks in Surabaya, Indonesia’s second largest city.
The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office updated its travel advice and said the area now has a “high threat of terrorism” and warned travellers to be “particularly vigilant”.
The Australian government stopped short of warning people not to travel to Indonesia but said an attack there “could take place at any time”.
"We continue to receive information that indicates that terrorists may be planning attacks in Indonesia, which could take place at any time," it said in a statement.
"You should also be aware of the severe penalties for narcotics offences, including the death penalty; some specific health risks; and risks associated with natural disasters.”
The statement added: “Terrorist groups remain active throughout Indonesia despite police disruptions. Police continue to conduct operations against these groups and have stated publicly that terrorist suspects remaining at large may seek to attack Western targets.”
