A vast archipelago of 17,000 islands, strung like pearls between the Indian and Pacific oceans, Indonesia is one of Asia’s largest countries and a richly rewarding destination.
Home to over 260 million people, comprising hundreds of different ethnic groups, Indonesia is a fascinating showcase of humanity and culture. Jakarta, the country’s vibrant capital city, is a hive of activity and industry, where shining new skyscrapers and attractions are elevating the city’s status as an international tourism hub. Alternatively, the heritage buildings and museums of Kota Tua, Jakarta’s “old town”, provide an insight into its colonial past.
More than half of all Indonesians live on the island of Java, making it the most populated island on Earth. Outside Jakarta, guests can explore many other major cities, from Bandung in the west to Surabaya in the east. Central Java meanwhile, is home to the charming cultural city of Yogyakarta, sea-facing Semarang, and UNESCO-listed Borobudur, which dates back to the 9th Century and is believed to be the world’s largest Buddhist temple.
Nestled just off the east coast of Java, Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination. Nicknamed the “Island of the Gods”, this stunning island provides a perfect balance of sun, sea, sand and spirituality. From the beaches and bars of Kuta to the cultural charm of Ubud, Bali offers magical, memorable experiences for all guests.
Spread across five of the world’s largest islands (Borneo, Sumatra, New Guinea, Sulawesi and Java), Indonesia is a land of superlatives. Home to the world’s largest volcanic lake (Lake Toba), the world’s biggest lizard (Komodo dragon) and the world’s largest flower (Rafflesia arnoldii), it is a country of deep diversity and breath-taking beauty. Whether you’re seeking a relaxing beach break, an immersive cultural experience, a vibrant city break or an off-the-beaten-track adventure, Indonesia has it all.
