Indonesia, the official Republic of Indonesia, is a country located in Southeast Asia, between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. It is the largest island in the world, with more than seventeen thousand islands. Moreover, its area is 1,904,569 square kilometres, and it is the fourteenth largest land area and 7 in the land and marine area combined.
The dramatic archipelago boasts many attractive attractions: massive Buddhist looms on the horizon on Java, the cultural part of Ubud, spectacular peaks, turquoise crater lakes of Gunung Rinjani, and the stunning white sandy beaches of Gili Islands. Not to mention the abundant wildlife, from giant Komodo dragons to small tarsiers in the Tangkuku National Park, and dozens of wild Orangutans are hollowing between the bushes of Bukit Lawang. But behind this apparent magic lies a bounty of undiscovered lands. The far-flung Banda Islands is a paradise for divers, while a boat trip along the magnificent Borneo rivers provides a taste of old Dayak life.
Thanks to affordable accommodation and very cheap local food, it’s no wonder that Indonesia is a favoured destination among many travellers.
