INDONESIA LUXURY TRAVEL
Indonesia is a unitary sovereign state and transcontinental country located mainly in Southeast Asia, with some of its territories in Oceania. It is situated between the Indian and Pacific oceans and is the world’s largest island country with more than 17’000 islands. Over 300 languages are spoken in this country. Indonesia is a beguiling country offering myriad adventures, has a rich diversity, is a land of beaches and volcanoes and offers amazing sights to visitors.
Indonesia is a grand patchwork of things. From Sumatra’s western tip to Papua’s eastern edge, there are so many cultures, people, customs, sights, food and plants that it feels like having 100 different countries melted into one. Every island has a unique blend of people living there. This intriguing region offers some of the last great adventures on earth, typically happening when you least expect it. Sit in the open door of a train whizzing across Java, hang on to the back of a scooter on Flores, go trekking through the wilderness, go see the impressive and mystical Komodo Dragons, watch an orang-utan as it swings through the trees in one of the many national parks, and go surfing on remote islands.
When venturing out in Indonesia, from volcanoes to beaches, passing by incredible temples, you will experience dramatic sights. Sumatra is surrounded by nearly 100 volcanoes, with several capable of erupting at any moment. Bali’s beaches are out of this world, and Banda islands in Maluku, Derawan and Pulau Weh are just magnificent. Borobudur and Prambanan are examples of stunning temples that can be visited; on one, there are 72 stupas sitting on each level.
The sights are quite simply amazing; it is idyllic, it is humbling, it is shocking, and it is sublime. There is something for every mood and every taste: orang-utans lounging in trees, deserted stretches of sugar-white sand on Sumbawa contrasting with azure surf breaks, a woman bent double with a load of firewood on Sumatra, funeral ceremonies of Tana Toraja and Borobudur’s serene magnificence. There are so many frames comprised in this country that you will never get enough of it.
