Why Indonesia?

Diverse, alive, inspiring

Indonesia is big in every sense of the word. With the world’s fourth largest population (including the world’s largest Muslim population) occupying the world’s largest archipelago of over 17,000 islands, this is a country that inspires awe in even the most seasoned traveller.

To say that Indonesia is a dynamic country would be an understatement. From the chaotic urban sprawl of Jakarta, to the lush rice fields and turquoise waters of Bali, to the rugged mountains and billowing volcanoes of Java, the sheer vastness of Indonesia can be daunting. The enormity of Indonesia’s geography is matched only by the diversity of its people and cultures.
