Indonesia Area Guide

Everything you Need to Know about Indonesia

When one thinks of Indonesia one's mind immediately jumps to beach scenes on Bali and the wonderful surfing there but there's much, much more to the world's biggest Muslim nation. 'The Big Durian' – Jakarta – is a hodge-podge of culture, vibrant nightlife and fascinating street scenes while inland on the island of Java is Yogyakarta – the centre of fine arts and puppetry. The islands of Bintan and Batam as well as Lombok are idyllic retreats featuring hidden coves, white-sand beaches and perfectly formed bays while Bali itself is alive with culture, a lively nightlife and world-class surfing. Enjoy Indonesia - it is a land of surprising contrasts and rich hospitality.
