While most travellers are familiar with Bali as a tourist hot spot, Indonesia as a whole has much more to offer. With over 17,000 Indonesian islands spanning 1.905 million km2, and more than 300 languages spoken by the locals, who knows what you might find?
Indonesia shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, Malaysia and East Timor, and is a hop, skip and a jump away from Singapore, Thailand and the north of Australia. The archipelago also spans three time zones!
Being near the equator, though, the temperature is consistent all year round. For Indonesia's climate, what you need to watch out of is the wet season, which takes place between October and March, as most tourist activities will be best enjoyed in the intervening dry season.
From the friendly people to the tropical beaches, vivid green rice fields to batik workshops, delicious street food to bustling markets and party spots, you’ll never run out of things to do.
