Travel to Indonesia

With more than 13,000 islands, this archipelago embraces a spectrum of diversity unknown elsewhere. Once heavily influenced by Dutch traders, the original Spice Islands were the source of nutmeg, cloves, and mace in the far-off markets of Europe. Today, Indonesia is known for spectacular volcanic landscapes, colorful underwater worlds, pristine beaches and an extraordinary collection of ethnic groups and festivals.
Weather in Indonesia:
All of the archipelago's islands lie within the tropical zone. Enjoy balmy temperatures year round. In the mountains, the climate is cool and pleasant.
   
What to Wear in Indonesia:

Language in Indonesia:

Indonesia Culture & Customs:
Indonesia's diversity owes much to its long history, spectacular geography and above all to the hundreds of unique cultural and ethnic groups who today call themselves Indonesian.
