Indonesia’s vibrant nation is home to over 250 million people and is known for beautiful beaches, volcanic peaks and lush jungles. Boasting a cluster of volcanic islands stretching to nearly two million square kilometers in size. All of which sits within the tropics.

Home to hundreds of ethnic groups and 716 languages and dialects spoken, Indonesian culture offers varying customs and lifestyles throughout all locations.

Showing off its white sand beaches, blue skies and cultural attractions, especially with Bali as a primary destination.  With its abundance of landscapes, Indonesia is quite possibly the backdrop to South East Asia’s greatest home to wildlife, not forgetting those Komodo Dragons.  

Indonesia has something for everyone, whether it be surfing in Kuta, monkeying around in Ubud or relaxing in picturesque waterfalls on Moyo Island..
