Indonesia is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries on Earth. It is an incredible country to explore and generally a safe one, as long as precautions are taken in certain areas. With 17,071 Islands, Indonesia, offers a lot more than your average country. Exotic and developed destinations such as Lombok and Bali, the Komodo Islands, historical destinations such as Yogyakarta and the capital city Jakarta, make for a very interesting country to visit.
The world’s fourth most populous country is like 100 countries melded into one: a kaleidoscope of a nation that sprawls along the equator for 5000km. Indonesia is a land of so many cultures, peoples, animals, customs, plants, sights, art and foods that it defies homogenisation.
This intoxicating land offers some of the last great adventures on earth. Sitting in the open door of a train whizzing across Java, hanging on to the back of a scooter on Flores, rounding the mystifying corner of an ancient West Timor village or simply trekking through wilderness you’re sure no one has seen before.
Venturing across Indonesia you’ll see a wonderfully dramatic landscape as diverse as anywhere on the planet. Sulawesi's wildly multi-limbed coastline embraces white-sand beaches and diving haunts, while Sumatra is contoured by a legion of nearly 100 volcanoes marching off into the distance, several capable of erupting at any time.
