Visit Indonesia

The republic of Indonesia comprises a series of islands located between Asia and Australia. It’s the world’s largest island country, with more than 17,000 islands in total available to explore.  Since the 800s, it has also been one of the most important areas in the region for trade. This has led to Indonesia becoming a very diverse and welcoming culture.

Anyone who visits Indonesia will find their way to Borobudur at some point. It is the most visited tourist attraction in the country and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Built in the 9th century, it is a Mahayana Buddhist Temple and the largest of its type in the world. Nine stacked platforms are topped by a central dome and 72 Buddha statues.

Indonesia is also home to about 20% of the world’s coral reefs, which means that snorkeling and scuba diving is also on the to-do list. More than 3,000 different species of fish and over 600 different coral species can be seen in the various trenches and sea mounts that are available.

Bunaken National Marine Park contains more than 70% of all the known fish species in that part of the ocean on its own. Scuba diving is also a historical experience in Indonesia, with numerous wrecks from World War II accessible.

In total, there are 8 World Heritage sites to explore. There are rainforests to visit. Mountains to climb. From surfing to eat scallops from a street vendor and everything in-between, Indonesia offers you the opportunity to experience true personal freedom.
