Located in Sud East Asia, along the equator, the largest archipelago in the world, made up of over 17,000 islands, awaits you. Welcome to Indonesia! Here you will literally be thrilled by its majestic volcanoes and eye-soothing green rice fields, its towering temples and age-old, ancestral rituals, its warm hospitality and the rhythm of the gamelan. Add to that the extensive charm of its pearly white beaches and coral seas and your mental postcard is picture-perfect.

Hotels & Meals

Indonesian cuisine varies by region and is based on Chinese, European, Middle Eastern, and Indian precedents. Rice is the main staple food and is served with side dishes of meat and vegetables. Spices (notably chili), coconut milk, fish and chicken are fundamental ingredients.
