Plan my Texel trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Texel is an approximately 20.5-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from West Indonesia Time (WIB) to Central European Time (CET), which is usually a -6 hour difference. In December, Texel is cooler than Jakarta - with highs of 9°C and lows of 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Sint Jansklooster.
