Indonesia presents an experience like no other. A mesh of tropical islands await you nestled amongst the turquoise blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Made up of over 17,000 islands strewn across 5000 km, Indonesia’s island’s each hold their own personality and attract different types of travellers all year round. One of the most visited countries in South East Asia, there is so much to do and see that you’ll want to dip your toes in for at least 10 days to see what Indonesia has to offer.
Cast away to the South Pacific and you’ll find a string of active volcanoes, lush forests, pristine beaches and colourful coral reefs under the surface of the crystal clear waters. This varied terrain is what makes Indonesia such an exciting travel destination. But it’s not just the natural sights to behold, as Indonesia also hosts stunning ancient temples which will leave you awestruck.
