If temples, volcanoes and beaches are your kind of thing then travelling in Indonesia is also your kind of thing. It’s an archipelago of islands, with new cultures, new food and new experiences every time you switch islands.
Indonesia is a country in Southeast Asia. Comprising 17,508 islands, it is the world’s largest archipelagic state. The five largest islands are Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan (the Indonesian part of Borneo), New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea), and Sulawesi. With a population of 222 million people, it is the world’s fourth most populous country and the most populous Muslim-majority nation. Indonesia is a republic, with an elected legislature and president. The nation’s capital city is Jakarta. Across its many islands, Indonesia consists of distinct ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support the world’s second highest level of biodiversity. Indonesia’s location on the edges of the Pacific, Eurasian, and Australian tectonic plates makes it the site of numerous volcanoes and frequent earthquakes. Indonesia has at least 150 active volcanoes, including Krakatoa and Tambora.
Explore Bali with RELIANCE Travel, a gorgeous Hindu beast with perfect beaches and smiling faces. Then there’s Java with Yogyakarta’s temples and, yes, more volcanoes. Over the waves there’s Lombok and it’s neighbouring slices of paradise, the Gilis. You can climb Mt Batur for sunrise, wander through rice paddies in Ubud and get a massage or ten in Sanur. You can camp on the slopes of Sengiggi, snorkel reefs and walk through villages where traditional Islamic life is every day life. If we had to sum up Indonesia in three words it would be: seafood, sunsets and so many surprises.
