Indonesia

When people think about Indonesia mostly likely the beautiful and colourful pictures of the tropical island of Bali shoots into their mind. And the ‘Island of a Thousand Temples’ is most certainly a special place to visit, with its colourful festivals and ceremonies, traditional music and dances,  arts and crafts, stunning nature,delicious cuisine and friendly locals. Add some first class beaches, the world best’s surfing waves and great shopping opportunities;there is nothing more you can ask from an island.

However, Indonesia is much more than just Bali. With more than 14,000 tropical and volcanic islands, inhabited and habitat, named and still unnamed, the Republic of Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world. It is home to more than 215 million people from more than 200 ethnic groups. When travelling through it, it feels like crossing 100 countries that are melded into one. 

The heartland of Indonesia is Java, a volcano-dotted island that is the economic centre and home to half of the population. The volcanoes, many of which are still very evidently active, are dotted with glimmering rice fields and small villages. The sprawling capital city is Jakarta, an old town with Dutch colonial buildings hiding below tall skyscrapers.

"It was the very best of holidays! Our 3 guides were all wonderful - engaging, helpful, lots of fun, and full of information. We saw lots and lots of Borneo’s animals - orangutans, macaque monkeys, a solitary gibbon, probiscus monkeys and sun bears - which was our main reason for visiting. We also saw villagers performing, led by the Sharman and other entertainment. Most of all though, we really enjoyed interaction with the guides, cooks on boats, and boat crew, they made our trip very special. " — Mrs Joyce and Mrs Burger, Townsville, November 2018

"Borobudur and the Hindu temples were great—clouds covered the volcano in the afternoon so we went to an old archaeological site instead, which was very good- 4 metres of lava and centuries of sediment over a partially recovered temple." — James Sheil, Mooloolaba QLD, September 2016

"The highlight of Indonesia is the ancient temples in Java, they are magnificent and impressive and people are very friendly." — Mr Bouman, Mullumbimby , September 2016
