Indonesia Travel Guide
Indonesia is such a vast country, with over 18,000 individual islands it is by far the largest and most varied archipelago in the world. When most people think of Indonesia, they think of the infamous island of Bali, which is definitely worth a visit. But there is so much more to discover in this amazing country. Head to Yogyakarta and the Borobudur Temple, or the small islands of Gili for a laid back atmosphere.
Indonesia is also home to the Komodo Dragon, and other vast arrays of wildlife you will not experience anywhere else in the world. It is also one of the most volcanically active countries in the world, with stunning volcano treks and scenery to look out for.
Indonesia, especially Bali is a haven for travellers and backpackers around South East Asia, due to its inexpensive food, accommodation and activities. But make sure you research and read our guides on how to get the most out of your trip to Indonesia!
