Indonesia shares lot of traits with its South East Asia neighbours, but at the same has a very distinctive character of its own.

With more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago.

There are infinite opportunities to explore here, but don’t let that put you off. There’s a good chance you’ll be planning your next trip to Indonesia before you even leave.

Why visit Indonesia:

There could be many reasons why you want to travel to Indonesia.

Indonesia epitomises everything that draws travellers to South East Asia, but it’s not short of surprises either. There are many different sides to Indonesia, and each of them is worth getting to know.

A nation of islands, it’s no surprise that Indonesia boasts some of the best beaches in the entire world. Island hopping is a fun way to explore and the coastal towns offer a slice of paradise to sun worshippers, surfers and deep sea divers.

Beyond its incredible beaches, though, Indonesia is home to some very different landscapes. From the deep jungles of Borneo and Sumatra, to the volcanoes and rice paddies of Bali, Indonesia is a country of endless natural wonders and photo opportunities.

Many people travel to Indonesia – and especially Bali – after seeing photos on Instagram. But, when you arrive, you’ll be amazed at just how beautiful this South East Asian country is.
