Welcome to Indonesia

Indonesia at a Glance

Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world. Indonesia comprises 17,000`s islands straddling the equator, situated between the continents of Asia and Australia and between the Pacific and the Indian Oceans. Indonesia has a total population of more than 220 million people from more than 200 ethnic groups. Population and culture is very diverse, because there are more than two hundred tribes and languages. The national language is Bahasa Indonesia.


Among the most well known islands are Sumatra, Java, Bali, Kalimantan (formerly called Borneo), Sulawesi (formerly called Celebes), the Maluku Islands (or better known as Moluccas, the original Spice Islands) and Papua. Then, there is Bali “the world's best island resort” with its enchanting culture, beaches, dynamic dances and music. However, Indonesia still has many unexplored islands with grand mountain views, green rainforests to trek through, rolling waves to surf and deep blue pristine seas to dive in where one can swim with dugongs, dolphins and large mantarays.

Wonderful Indonesia



Culturally, Indonesia fascinates with her rich diversity of ancient temples, music, ranging from the traditional to modern pop, dances, rituals and ways of life, changing from island to island, from region to region. Yet everywhere the visitor feels welcomed with that warm, gracious innate friendliness of the Indonesian people that is not easily forgotten. 

Because of its location, and geology, Indonesia is blessed with the most diverse landscape, from fertile rice lands on Java and Bali to the luxuriant rainforests of Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi, from the savannah grasslands of the Nusa Tenggara islands to snow-capped peaks of West Papua. The wildlife ranges from the prehistoric giant Komodo lizard to the Orang Utan and the Java rhino, to the Sulawesi anoa dwarf buffalos, to birds with exquisite plumage like the cockatoo and the bird of paradise. This is also the habitat of the Rafflesia the world’s largest flower, wild orchids, an amazing variety of spices, and aromatic hardwood and a large variety of fruit trees. Underwater, scientists have found in North Sulawesi the prehistoric coelacanth fish, a “living fossil” fish, predating the dinosaurs living some 400 million years ago, while whales migrate yearly through these waters from the South Pole. Here are hundreds of species of colourful coral and tropical fish to admire.

Jakarta, Bali, Medan, Padang, Bandung, Solo, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Makassar are connected by direct international flights, and many regular and low cost carriers fly passengers to Indonesia’s towns or remote locations.

So, what are you waiting for? Come and joint the awesome adventures. :D
